Seller Description

This 2002 BMW M Coupe is finished in Imola Red over an Imola Red and black Nappa leather interior and is powered by a 3.2-liter S54 inline-six paired with a five-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. The car was reportedly used as a fleet vehicle by BMW in South Carolina until 2008 and later resided with owners in Pennsylvania and New York before the selling dealer acquired it in 2020. Equipment includes a power-operated sunroof, four-wheel ventilated disc brakes, Koni adjustable front coilovers, Vorshlag camber plates, an Eisenmann Race exhaust system, heated power-adjustable front seats, a BMW Business CD stereo, and a Harman Kardon sound system. Now showing just over 26k miles, this M Coupe is offered by the selling dealer in New Jersey with removed suspension components, an owner’s manual, a clean Carfax report, and a clean New York title.

The M Coupe is differentiated from the contemporary Z3 by unique fender vents, flared quarter panels, and revised front and rear bumper covers. This example is finished in Imola Red (405) and features a power-operated sunroof, a rear wiper, and quad exhaust tips exiting below the rear bumper. The selling dealer has provided photos of paint-depth readings in the gallery.

Staggered-width 17″ Style 40 wheels are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport A/S tires. Braking is handled by four-wheel ventilated discs, and the suspension features Koni front coilovers, Koni rear shocks, Kline Racing rear coil springs, and Vorshlag camber plates. Service in December 2020 included replacing the brake master cylinder pressure switches as well as bleeding the brake system. The selling dealer states that the removed factory suspension components will accompany the car.

The interior is trimmed in Imola Red and black Nappa leather with black carpets. Amenities include air conditioning, heated bucket seats, power windows, cruise control, and a Harman Kardon audio system with a BMW Business CD stereo unit. The passenger-side airbag was removed and the airbag wiring was repaired in December 2020.

The red and black steering wheel frames a 170-mph speedometer, a 9k-rpm tachometer, and gauges for fuel level and coolant temperature. Auxilliary VDO gauges in the center stack include an analog clock and readouts for ambient temperature and oil temperature. The digital odometer shows 26k miles, only a handful of which were added by the selling dealer.

The 3.2-liter S54 inline-six features six individual throttle bodies and was factory rated at 315 horsepower and 251 lb-ft of torque. Maintenance in December 2020 included an oil change and a multi-point inspection.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a five-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. An Eisenmann Race exhaust system was fitted during previous ownership.

The Carfax report shows registration history in South Carolina, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and New York through the most recent entry in 2013, and it indicates no accidents or other damage. The selling dealer has provided an overview video below.

We last saw this coupe listed in January 2019. The mileage is only up a little, and it still has all of its nice, subtle upgrades. Bidding up to $36,315.00 so far
