Seller Description

1999  BMW Z3 M Coupe

I have for sale a 1999 BMW M Coupe, in Red with all Black interior.  I searched for a while to find one with this color combination, as most seem to have the two-tone interior colors, and I wanted all black.  The car has just 80k miles and is powered by a 3.2-liter S52 inline-six and paired with a 5-speed manual transmission.  I purchased the car in October 2016.  I took it to the local BMW dealer as soon as I returned home.  I had a few items fixed at that time, front tie rods, coolant flush, and the cruise control replaced, as it was not working.  I have a copy of this invoice.  This bill was +$4k.  The A/C work, blows cold.  I also have a car cover.  I keep the car in my garage and I do not drive the M in winter.  The car has a clean Michigan title and it is in my name.

Items to note:
-wheels all have road rash from curbs.  I was going to wait to find some nicer wheels on Ebay or take them to have them repaired.
-driver’s side door needs adjustment; it’s sometimes sticky to open.  The dealer told me that it would require a new latch and it didn’t bother me enough to fix it.
-the headlight leveling adjuster seems to be broken.  They point down the road ok now, just a little out of alignment.
-there are a few ‘dings’ (hard to see, but see photos – ask me if you’d like me to take more photos)
-I have a Carfax from when I bought the car.  There was an accident in 2002.  The damage must have been minor as title is clean and not ‘rebuilt’.

Long time BMWCCA member.  I have other cars (including another red M coupe) and I'm slimming down my collection to something more manageable.  This would be a great car to drive daily, or drive at BMWCCA or car events.  The values of these odd-looking M cars seem to be rising.

Please let me know if you have questions.  I can email you more photos if needed.  Thank you.

No takers at $20,500 (down from $20,750) which is surprising

Seems like a great driver at a great price. It needs some very minor TLC, but most of it's bigger needs were taken care of when current owner purchased it a couple years ago.
