$15,000 in upgrades! DINAN performance package on top of a $46,000 original MSRP. Rare: Only 1,600 S54 M Roadsters were produced in 2001-2002. Stock from factory with 75 more HP than the 1998-2000 S52 M. The S54 out handled and out accelerated cars twice its price. This is one of the great driver’s cars – AC Cobra-like in many ways. Scary fast, aggressive styling. BMW’s best gearbox, and massive engine and brakes. Jaw-dropping torque and power, and braking 60 to 0 in less than 115 feet, yet capable of 17 to 25 MPG. Perfectly balanced at 50/50 front to rear weight distribution, hence the rear mounted battery. This particular car was from California; I am second non-smoking owner and this car has always been garaged. It has never been in and accident, and is in truly excellent overall condition.
What makes this car more rare, exciting, and satisfying, at about 25,000 miles the following enhancements began with BMW dealer-installed DINAN equipment:
Front strut brace, High-flow cold air intake/air mass meter, Throttle bodies, Tuned exhaust, Stage 4 tuning, AC Schnitzer springs (1.5” lower) w/Bilstein shocks. Short shift kit, K-40 built-in radar detector (front and rear). Focal speakers and enclosures and a JL audio amp.
Recent upgrades include new paint, tires and rims, reinforced metal in trunk area (known issue on these beasts).
With an estimated 370 HP propelling 3,069 lbs., this is the ultimate Uber Rocket.
