Seller Description

Here it is folks…. DreamCarXchange is thrilled present this two-owner, 45k mile 2002 BMW M Coupe, finished in the highly sought-after Laguna Seca Blue!  This final year M Coupe S54 is equipped with a 5-speed manual transmission and is finished Grey/Black Napa Leather interior color combination.  BMW only produced 41 Laguna Seca Blue M Coupes, ever!  It was purchased from Crevier BMW in Santa Ana, CA in May 2002 by the original owner and then purchased by the most recent owner in June 2007 when that owner lived in Oregon.  In June 2017 the owner moved to New Jersey where the car resides today.  It currently shows 45,618 miles.  The only modification is a Dinan intake and early generation iPod connections and interior cupholders, which are all reversible if desired.  The selling dealer just completed a full maintenance in addition to installing new tires.  It is being sold with the original window sticker, maintenance documents and the original intake. It has a clean CARFAX and a clean New Jersey title.

The M Coupe was introduced by BMW to the United States in 1999.  For model years 2001 and 2002 it was upgraded from the S52 engine to the S54 engine which increased power from 240 hp to 315 hp.  The S54 engine is a 3.2 liter inline six-cylinder that was rated by BMW at 315 hp @ 7400 rpm and 251 lb-ft of torque @ 4900 rpm when new. The only modification to it is a Dinan intake.  Power is sent to the rear wheels via a 5-speed manual transmission and limited slip differential.

Below are YouTube links to short driving and engine idle/revving videos:

This S54 Coupe comes with the Grey/Black Nappa Leather and features the optional power sunroof.  Standard features include heated adjustable M design sport seats and a Harman Kardon audio system.  The only interior modifications are connectors for early generation iPhone/iPod and cupholders in the center console, which are removeable if desired.

The car comes with the original window sticker, showing a MSRP of $45,935.

The selling dealer states the car to be in excellent cosmetic condition, with only minor imperfections such as a delaminating rearview mirror, broken clock stalk (though it functions properly) and some stone chips/scratches as pointed out in photos in the picture gallery.

This example has been maintained throughout its life as indicated by the CARFAX and the maintenance records that go back to the original owner.  The selling dealer just completed a service that included:

  • Oil & Filter change
  • Differential fluid change
  • Brake fluid flush and change
  • Coolant flush and change
  • A/C service
  • Replaced driver inner tie rod and alignment
  • Replaced all spark plugs
  • Refinished all wheels and installed four new tires

The freshly refinished wheels were mounted with new Continental ExtremeContact Sport tires sized 225/45/17 front and 245/40/17 rear with manufacturer dates codes of 1621 and 5021 respectively.

The selling dealer states it accelerates, shifts, brakes and rides as it should.  You can download the clean CARFAX from the Key Specifications table above and make sure you check out the 120+ additional pictures, including those of the undercarriage and paint meter readings in the “Pictures” tab above.

I had never heard of Dream Car Xchange before. It's sad that I didn't see this auction for an LSB coupe until after it was over. I kind of wonder how it would have done on a different site or with more marketing. It looks good overall but the rearview mirror needs to be fixed ASAP.
