This BMW M Roadster is one of 643 built for the 2002 model year and one of 78 total examples painted Laguna Seca Blue from the factory. With 35,250 miles shown, the owner has had this BMW for approximately 2.5 years and has modified the car with a Dinan ECU tune, Dinan exhaust system, and a Bilstein suspension system. These late-model Roadsters were fitted with an S54 3.2L 24-valve inline-six producing 315 horsepower in stock tune and paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox. This M roadster is now being offered by a friend of the current owner with service records, clear Carfax/Autocheck reports, and a clean New York title.
To the seller’s knowledge, this Roadster retains all of its factory paint and panels, backed up by accident-free Carfax and Autocheck reports. After being leased new by a local banker, this car was acquired by the owner of BMW specialist shop Guten Parts and Service as a personal vehicle, and the current owner bought it from him. The Dinan exhaust system features two large exhaust outlets in lieu of the factory quad pipes.
Exterior cosmetics are said to be strong aside from a small tear in the fabric wind deflector and one paint chip, both of which are highlighted in the photo gallery. The original 17″ alloy wheels show a few marks and are shod in Bridgestone Potenza RE750 tires while the car sits lower than stock on the Bilstein suspension system.
Of the 78 total Laguna Seca Blue M Roadsters produced, 29 were fitted with the two-tone gray and black leather interior seen on this car. The upholstery looks to be nicely-preserved with no excessive wear per the seller.
All features are fully functional per the seller including dual heated seats and cold A/C. The airbag warning light is currently on, likely due to a failed sensor per the seller and a common issue on these cars.
Up front, an S54 3.2L 24-valve inline-six was quoted to produce peaks of 315 horsepower and 251 lb-ft of torque though the Dinan ECU tune and exhaust should offers some increase in output. The current owner services the car at BMW of Manhattan and will include records from his time with the car as well as those from the prior owner at Guten Parts and Service.
The Carfax report shows three owners, five service history records, no accidents, and no reported issues. An Autocheck report has also been included in the photo gallery.
