Seller Description

1999 BMW Z3 M Coupe for sale. 119k miles, S52, Cosmos black over black. Branded California title (at 92k miles/2014; see previous ads on Z3MCBG for info). Extensive service history included with tons of work put in over the last few years -- by myself and the previous owners -- to make this car really shine. I've driven it on multiple cross-country roadtrips and wouldn't hesitate to do so again today. This car is a wonderful 'driver' car that won't have the new owner fretting about adding miles or worrying about the subframe.

Note: Some of the photos here are from last year, though condition is unchanged; current photos of mileage, gurney flap, and new stereo are included. Full set of updated photos coming.

Here is a list of some high points of the maintenance/modifications:

­- Randy Forbes Rear Subframe Reinforcement

- Brand New Steering Rack
­- Treehouse Racing FCAB
­- New Subframe Bushings

We've seen this coupe for sale a few times over the years. The highlight is the Randy Forbes kit, but it's had some good recent maintenance as well as some other good modifications. It still needs a little TLC, but would make a great drive. I think the price is pretty good.
