This 2002 BMW M Coupe was sold new by Hassel BMW of Freeport, New York and now shows just over 15k miles. The car is finished in metallic silver over a black leather interior and is one 687 US-spec examples powered by an S54 3.2-liter inline-six paired with a five-speed manual transmission. Equipment includes a limited-slip differential, a sunroof, heated seats, air conditioning, cruise control, and a Harman Kardon stereo. This M Coupe is offered by the seller on behalf of a dealer in Oregon with a car cover, a window sticker, manufacturer’s literature, partial service records, a Carfax report, and a clean New York title.
The M Coupe was distinguished from the standard Z3 with front fender vents, wider rear fenders, and a revised front bumper cover. Of the 678 S54-powered M Coupes built for the 2001-2002 model years, just 132 were finished in Titanium Silver Metallic over black Nappa leather and equipped with a factory sunroof. The Carfax report lists an accident where the car hit a sign in July 2002, and the seller states that the passenger door was repainted as a result. Paint meter readings from multiple panels can be viewed in the photo gallery below.
Staggered-width 17″ Style 40 Roadstar wheels are wrapped in 225/45 and 245/40 Bridgestone Potenza S-04 tires showing date codes from 2018. Curb rash is visible on the rear wheels.
The cockpit is upholstered in black Nappa leather with a matching dash, door panels, and carpets. Amenities include manually-adjustable and heated seats, electric windows, remote keyless entry, cruise control, air conditioning, and a Harmon Kardon stereo.
Instrumentation framed by a three-spoke M-badged steering wheel consists of a 170-mph speedometer, a 9k-rpm tachometer, and gauges monitoring coolant temperature and fuel level. The digital odometer shows just over 15k 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, an increase of 65 horsepower and 15 lb-ft of torque over the previous S52-powered M Coupe. Fluid changes are said to have been completed in preparation for the sale, and the trunk and hood shocks were also replaced.
Power is sent to the rear wheels through a ZF five-speed manual transmission and a factory limited-slip differential. Additional photos of the underside, brakes, and suspension components can be viewed in the gallery below.
The window sticker shows factory colors and equipment as well as an original MSRP of $45,935.
The May 2020 Carfax report displays the aforementioned accident in July 2002 and lists emissions testing, registration, and service history from a single previous owner in New York.
