Seller Description

Absolutely gorgeous and exceptionally rare, this M Roadster averaged less than 2,500 miles of driving per year. It has been meticulously cared for, always garaged and professionally stored each winter.

As noted in the Autocheck and CarFax reports (CarFax available upon request) this car was in a minor accident in May of 2018 but was deemed a total loss due to a part being unavailable during the insurance company's repair window. The car was later fully restored (no aftermarket or refurbished parts) and is 100% within spec, has a guaranteed clean title and is eligible for Autocheck and CarFax buyback protection. All mechanical inspections were completed by BMW of South Albany / paint and body work was completed at Green Island Autobody - all fully documented.

This M is mechanically flawless and like-new cosmetically. Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires all around with around 4k miles on them. The top is original and the rear window was just replaced and is crystal clear. Only the most minor wear on the leather and no interior defects. I will happily point out every imperfection I am aware of and answer any questions honestly. Please - no nonsense.

In addition to everything pictured the car comes with an additional set of rear rims that I purchased with the intent of refurbishing but never got around to it. 4 sets of keys included. Original documentation/paperwork and service records available.

No modifications other than the radio head unit (no, I do not have the original) and the dynamic sway bar in the engine compartment. This car was never tracked and pretty much babied since day one by the prior owner (a family member) and me.

It's fairly low mileage and looks very clean and stock. The only modification I see is audio. The price is optimistic though.
