Seller Description

This 2002 BMW M Coupe is finished in Imola Red over a black and red Nappa leather interior and has less than 4,500 miles. It is one the 340 M Coupes produced in 2002, and one of only 41 to leave the factory finished in this color combination. It is a lifetime California car, and the seller has added just 200 miles since acquiring it from the original owner 12 years ago. Power is provided by an S54 3.2-liter inline-six paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox, and although few miles have been driven over the past 12 years, oil changes have been performed by the seller annually. This S54 M Coupe is now offered with a clean Carfax report and a clean California title in the seller’s name.

Wide Imola Red bodywork is accented with fender vents, quadruple exhaust tips, and M badges. A few stone chips on the nose have been touched up with a paint pen, and no prior-accidents or damage are shown on the included Carfax report. The car has reportedly been garage kept and only driven during dry weather for the past 12 years.

Staggered-width 17″ Style 40 wheels wear the original Michelin Pilot Sport tires. Close-up of the wheels and wheel wells have been provided in the gallery below.

Of the 67 Imola Red S54-powered M Coupes produced, 41 came with an interior trimmed in black and red Nappa leather (Q6IM). A 6-disc CD changer and Harman Kardon audio system came equipped from the factory and remain installed. Around 4,454 miles shown are shown on the odometer.

The 3.2-liter S54 inline-six is equipped with Double VANOS variable valve timing and produced a factory rating of 315 horsepower. Shifting is through a ZF 5-speed manual transmission.

Additional photos of the underside are available in the gallery below.

One previous owner and registration records in California since new are shown on the included Carfax. The car has been registered as Planned Non-Operational for the past few years. Over 130 photos can be viewed in the gallery below.

I heard this one was coming to Bring a Trailer soon. It's probably the most exciting coupe to be listed on Bring a Trailer so far. The early bid at $60,000 is nice and aggressive.
