This 2000 BMW M Roadster is finished in silver over black and shows 98,900 miles. It has been kept in California for the majority of its life and the seller acquired it around three years ago. It has reportedly been maintained in stock specification including its S52B32 3.2-liter inline-six and 5-speed manual transmission. A $5k service was completed in January 2015 at 88,300 miles that included replacing the radiator, water pump, thermostat, expansion tank, an oxygen sensor, new rear shocks/mounts, the engine and transmission mounts, inner tie-rods, sway bar end links, drive belts, and more. The seller cites regular maintenance throughout his ownership and this BMW is now offered out of Nevada with recent service records, an accident-free Carfax, a factory hard top, and a clean California title in the seller’s name.
The seller states that this Roadster has not been involved in any accidents to his knowledge, and all factory paint and panels remain present. The car is fitted with a removable hard top that doesn’t seal perfectly and allows a few drops of water in during prolonged heavy exposure.
Light rust is said to be visible in one area of the passenger-side window frame while bubbling is also present on both side-view mirror bases as highlighted in the photo gallery below. The factory 17″ five-spoke alloy wheels show a few marks in these pictures and are fitted with BFGoodrich g-Force Sport tires. The seller states that the front brakes are worn and will need replacing soon.
Both seats appear to be in good overall condition with some creases and wear shown on the driver’s outer bolster and seat cushion.
Interior flaws are listed as several loose trim pieces and a broken climate control knob making the heater inoperable. The soft top has also lost some of its mid-layer insulation over time. All instrumentation and lighting are said to be fully operational while the A/C is noted to blow cool but not cold.
The S52B32 3.2-liter inline-six and 5-speed manual transmission have been kept stock. In January 2015 at 88,300 miles a $5k service was completed including replacing the radiator, water pump, thermostat, expansion tank, an oxygen sensor, new rear shocks/mounts, the engine and transmission mounts, inner tie-rods, sway bar end links, and drive belts. Additionally, a four-wheel alignment was performed and the multi-page receipt documenting the work is displayed in the photo gallery. An Inspection II service was performed at 87k miles and the seller will provide a California smog check if the new owner plans to register the car in California.
Some surface rust is described under the hood, and the flex disc is reportedly cracking but functional. Compression and leak-down numbers are displayed on a 2014 service record in the gallery.
An accident-free Carfax from 7/11/17 cites registration in California from new, eight service history records, and three reported owners.
