Seller Description

This 2000 BMW M Roadster is powered by a 3.2-liter S52 inline-six paired with a five-speed manual transmission and is finished in Estoril Blue over Estoril Blue and black Nappa leather. Equipment includes 17″ Style 40 wheels, a limited-slip differential, a blue soft top, a Harman Kardon sound system, air conditioning, and cruise control. The seller acquired the car in Illinois in 2019 and has since added approximately 2k of the 44k indicated miles. Subsequent work included replacing the third brake light lens and housing, the seat track bushings, a driveshaft universal joint, the transmission input shaft seal, and the battery. This M Roadster is now offered with partial service invoices, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Illinois title in the seller’s name.

This M Roadster is finished in Estoril Blue and features a replacement power-operated blue convertible soft top, front fender vents, and quad exhaust outlets. The third brake light lens and housing were replaced in October 2019. Chrome-finished mounting hardware for a luggage rack is noted on the trunk lid, deteriorating exterior door handle gaskets are shown, and paint chips on the rear edge of the left door are documented in the photo gallery below.

Silver-finished 17″ Style 40 wheels are mounted with 225/45 Dunlop SP Sport 5000 tires up front and Continental ExtremeContact tires measuring 245/40 out back. The car is equipped with Automatic Stability Control, and braking is handled by four-wheel ventilated discs. A brake fluid flush was performed in March 2022.

The cabin features Estoril Blue and black Nappa leather covering the heated sport seats, door panel inserts, and center console. Amenities include roll hoops, air conditioning, cruise control, an AM/FM cassette stereo, and a Harman Kardon sound system. The seat track bushings were replaced under current ownership and the shift knob was replaced in March 2022. Scuffing is noted on the driver’s seat next to the seat belt guide, a tear is shown on the passenger-side bottom seat bolster, and wear is present on the center armrest.

The M-branded leather-wrapped steering wheel features tri-color stitching and frames a 160-mph speedometer, a tachometer, and gauges for coolant temperature and fuel level. The digital odometer indicates 44k miles, approximately 2k of which were added under current ownership.

The 3.2-liter S52B32 inline-six features VANOS variable valve timing and was factory rated at 240 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a ZF five-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. The alternator diodes and voltage regulator were replaced in August 2020, and service completed in March 2022 included replacing the battery and performing an oil change. A driveshaft universal joint and the transmission input shaft seal were replaced at approximately 43k miles, and the fluids in the transmission and differential were changed at that time.

The Carfax report shows no accidents or damage and lists history in New Jersey, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Florida, and Illinois.

As mentioned we last saw this roadster back in 2019 with 1500 fewer miles. It still looks very clean and stock besides the OEM fog lights. Bidding up to $5,000.00 so far.
