This 2001 BMW M Coupe is finished in Black Sapphire Metallic over black Nappa leather and powered by a 3.2-liter S54 inline-six mated to a five-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. The car was ordered without a sunroof, and equipment includes staggered-width 17″ Style 40 wheels, cruise control, heated and power-adjustable seats, and a CD stereo paired with a Harman Kardon sound system. The car spent time in Pennsylvania, Arizona, and California before it was acquired by the selling dealer and relocated to Illinois in March 2021. It now shows 36k miles, and recent service included an oil change and the replacement of the drive belts. This M Coupe is now offered in Illinois with a window sticker, service records, manufacturer’s literature, a clean Carfax report, and a clean California title.
The body is finished in Black Sapphire Metallic and the car was ordered without a sunroof. Equipment includes a rear wiper, fender vents, and quad exhaust tips. The hood and front bumper were refinished during prior ownership to repair scuffs. A chip in the windshield has been filled and a ding in the left-rear quarter panel was repaired with paintless dent removal. The seller notes the presence of chips in the lower flared sections of the quarter panels.
