Seller Description

This 2002 BMW M Coupe shows just under 9,700 miles and is finished in Steel Gray Metallic over a black Nappa leather interior. It is powered by a 3.2-liter S54 inline-six paired with a 5-speed manual transmission and is one of only 340 M Coupes produced in 2002, the final model year. Equipment includes an electric moonroof, heated seats, a 9-speaker Harman Kardon sound system, and air conditioning. The seller purchased the car in 2003 from the original owner and has since maintained it as part his BMW collection. The sale includes service records since new, the original window sticker, tool kit, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Virginia title in the seller’s name.

Just 47 S54-powered M Coupes were finished in Stahlgrau Metallic (400) over black. The car is equipped with four exhaust outlets, fender vents, and white European front side markers, though the stock side markers are included in the sale. Paint meter readings are available in the gallery below, and the recent Carfax report shows no history of accidents or damage.

Staggered-width 17″ Style 40 wheels wear Michelin Pilot Sport tires, measuring 225/45 up front and 245/40 out back. A blemish on the driver-side rear wheel has been touched up according to the seller, who notes the car has been kept in a climate-controlled warehouse.

The interior features heated seats trimmed in black Nappa leather, with matching carpets and door panels. An electric moonroof, CD player, 9-speaker Harman Kardon sound system, and air conditioning were equipped from the factory.

Instrumentation consists of a 170-mph speedometer, a 9k-rpm tachometer, gauges for fuel level and temperature, and a trio of VDO gauges mounted in the center stack. The digital odometer shows 9,700 miles, approximately 5k of which were added by the seller over the last decade and a half.

The 3.2-liter S54 inline-six was rated at 315 horsepower at 7,400 rpm and 251 lb-ft of torque at 4,900 rpm when new. Shifting is through a ZF 5-speed manual transmission. An oil change was recently performed per the seller.

Additional underside photos are available in the gallery below.

The window sticker shows initial delivery to County Line BMW of Watertown, Connecticut and an MSRP of $45,935.

The Carfax report shows no accidents or other issues and lists two owners in Florida and Virginia. A tool kit and service records since new are also included in the sale.

This should be a fun auction to watch. Bidding is already up to $20,000. The photos aren't quite as stunning as the imola red S54 that was prevously listed, but it is steel gray :-).
