Seller Description

Now available for auction is this 2000 BMW E36/8 Z3 M Coupe finished in Estoril Blue over a Dark Beige Oregon leather interior. Introduced in 1998, the M Coupe was the high-performance fixed-roof version of the Z3 featuring the venerable S52 inline-six engine and brakes from the E36 M3, an upgraded suspension, and more aggressive bodywork. This E36/8 was sold new in California and had been under the care of its second owner in New Mexico from 2006 up until 2021. Showing approximately 38k miles on the odometer, this classic Estoril Blue M Coupe is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Florida.

This M Coupe is one of 472 North American examples to have come factory finished in Estoril Blue (335).  It features black Shadowline trim, M-badged fender vents, M-specific bumper covers, rounded aero mirrors, a lower rear tailgate spoiler, and quad exhaust outlets. Additional equipment includes aftermarket HID headlight bulbs, a roof-mounted antenna, and black door handles. The seller notes a minor chip in the windshield and three small paint chips on the front valence and hood. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report. The staggered-width 17” Style 40 “Roadstar” wheels come fitted with new Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 4 tires.

The interior is trimmed in Dark Beige Oregon leather with textured inserts (R3SN) and power-adjustable heated sport seats. BMW Motorsport features include a leather-wrapped M-Sport steering wheel, an M shift knob, M-branded door sills, and chrome-trimmed instrumentation with auxiliary gauges in the center stack. Other amenities include a glass sunroof, air conditioning, an alarm system with keyless entry, and a BMW Business CD stereo system.

This M Coupe is powered by a 3.2L S52 inline-six engine borrowed from the E36 M3, which produces up to 240 HP and 236 lb.-ft of torque. The rear wheels are driven by a ZF 5-speed manual transmission and mechanical limited-slip differential, allowing acceleration from 0-60 MPH in approximately 5 seconds. The M Coupe was built with a wider front and rear track than a standard Z3, and also received a lowered ride height, modified front suspension geometry, firmer springs and shock absorbers, strengthened semi-trailing arms, and a reinforced subframe. The brakes were also carried over from the E36 M3. The CARFAX report shows maintenance at BMW dealerships in Arizona and New Mexico, and service in August of 2021 included an oil and filter change, new spark plugs, tires, and a wheel alignment.

This sale will include multiple keys, owner's manuals, service records, and a clean title. An iconic and unique part of BMW Motorsport’s history, this Z3 M Coupe is a true modern classic.

This coupe sold on Bring a Trailer a couple months ago. It doesn't have any new miles. The price is a little crazy for an S52.
