This 1999 BMW M Coupe was purchased new at Richmond BMW in Virginia and remained with its original owner until the selling dealer acquired it in January 2019. The body is finished in Cosmos Black Metallic over black leather, and power is from a 3.2L S52 inline-six paired with a 5-speed manual transmission. Service records are said to cover from purchase to the recent replacement of the hood struts, shock mounts, and other items by Beck’s European in Scottsdale, Arizona. This M Coupe shows 16k miles and is offered with a window sticker, service records, owner’s books, a Carfax report, and a clean Arizona title.
This example is one of 1,303 Z3M Coupes finished in Cosmos Black Metallic according to available production data. An August 2018 damage report noted on the Carfax is said to have resulted from a claim against a transport company for a dent and paint damage occurring during cross-country transit. A receipt for the repairs can be seen below along with close-up shots of the exterior, which shows blemishes on the front and rear bumper covers.
The car is equipped with a factory rear window wiper and quad exhaust tips. A dark tint has been applied to the cabin windows. The shock mounts and hood struts were replaced during a recent service, and a four-wheel alignment was performed. BMW Style 40 17″ wheels wear staggered-width Michelin Pilot Sport tires.
Black Nappa leather covers heated seats with mixed power and manual adjustments, while stainless M-branded door sills can be seen above. Optional equipment includes a Harman Kardon audio system, an in-dash CD player, and a power sunroof.
An M-sport steering wheel and shift lever were standard, as was the trio auxiliary gauges in the center stack. The digital odometer shows just over 16k miles. A new A/C switch was installed in February 2018.
The rear hatch area includes a retractable cargo cover and screen partition. Sagging can be seen in the headliner fabric.
The 3.2L S52 inline-six was rated at 240 horsepower with 236 lb-ft of torque when new and pairs with a 5-speed manual gearbox. A general inspection was performed by Beck’s European of Scottsdale, Arizona in preparation for the sale.
Service receipts are said to cover from purchase through the February 2018 service.
The 2019 Carfax report shows the aforementioned damage claim and records history with one previous owner in Virginia and Florida.
Standard and optional equipment is listed in the original window sticker, which shows a 1999 MSRP of $43k. Factory literature is also included in the sale.
