Seller Description

This 2002 BMW M Coupe is one of a claimed 678 examples produced for the North American market that were powered by an 3.2-liter S54 inline-six paired with a five-speed manual gearbox, and it is finished in Black Sapphire Metallic over beige Oregon leather. Equipment includes a limited-slip differential, heated seats, a glass sunroof, air conditioning, and a Harman-Kardon sound system. The car was first registered in California, and later spent time in Ohio, New Mexico, and Massachusetts before it was acquired by the current owner in 2018 and subsequently relocated to Canada. Now showing 49k miles, this M Coupe is offered by the seller on behalf of its owner in Canada with a clean Carfax report and Ontario registration.

The car is finished in Black Sapphire Metallic (475) and is equipped with a glass sunroof, quad exhaust outlets, and front fender vents. The selling dealer notes prior paintwork on both quarter panels and the rear bumper.

Staggered-width 17″ Style 40 RoadStar wheels were refinished in graphite and wear Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport tires measuring 235/45 up front and 265/40 out back.

The cabin features beige Oregon leather upholstery on the seats and door panels, as well as a matching dashboard and carpets. Amenities include heated seats, power windows, cruise control, air conditioning, and a Harmon-Kardon sound system. The seller notes a de-laminated rear view mirror, and that the passenger seat does not slide forward or backward.

Instrumentation framed by a three-spoke M-badged steering wheel consists of a 170-mph speedometer and a 9k-rpm tachometer, as well as gauges for coolant temperature and fuel level. The digital odometer shows under 49k miles.

The 3.2-liter S54 inline-six is equipped with individual throttle bodies and was factory rated at 315 horsepower with 251 lb-ft of torque when new. The windshield washer system is inoperable according to the selling dealer.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a ZF five-speed manual gearbox and a factory limited-slip differential. Additional underside photos are provided in the gallery below, and corrosion is noted on the subframe and control arms.

A March 2020 Canadian Carfax report shows no accidents or other damage and lists registration history in California, Ohio, New Mexico, Massachusetts, and Ontario through its most recent entry in May 2018.

For being a fairly rare color combo, we sure have seen a lot of these the past few months. As mentioned, this coupe was a former Enthusiast Auto coupe, but it was back in 2011 with 29k miles. We have seen it 3 other times since then. It still looks pretty good overall, and the only obvious modification is the nice ZHP shift knob. The CAD price translates to about $44,500 USD which seems very fair.
