Seller Description

This 2001 BMW M Coupe is one of just 11 examples finished in Imola Red over black leather for the model year, and it is powered by a 3.2-liter S54 inline-six paired with a five-speed manual transmission. The seller purchased the car new at Peake BMW in Kenner, Louisiana, and it has since remained registered in Florida. Equipment includes a limited-slip differential, a glass sunroof, a CD stereo, 17″ Style 40 wheels, a Harman Kardon sound system, air conditioning, and cruise control. This M Coupe has 74k miles and is now offered with the original sale contract, manufacturer’s literature, service records, a car cover, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Florida title in the seller’s name.

The body is finished in Imola Red and is equipped with a power-operated glass sunroof, front fender vents, a rear window wiper, and quad exhaust outlets. The seller reports the hood and front bumper have been repainted, and scratches are noted on the right quarter panel.

Shadow-finished 17″ Style 40 wheels show pitting and are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires measuring 225/45 up front and 245/40 out back. The car is equipped with Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), and braking is handled by four-wheel ventilated discs.

The cabin features black Nappa leather covering the heated sport seats, door panel inserts, and center console. Amenities include air conditioning, cruise control, a CD stereo, and a Harman Kardon sound system. The shift knob lighting was repaired and the rear hatch struts were reportedly replaced in 2022. The seller notes a broken rear cargo area speaker grille, scuffed leather on the driver’s seat outer bolster, and scratches on the center console and driver’s door handle.

The M-branded leather-wrapped steering wheel features tri-color stitching and frames a tachometer with an 8k-rpm redline as well as a 180-mph speedometer and gauges for coolant temperature and fuel level. The digital odometer indicates 74k miles.

The 3.2-liter S54B32 inline-six features double-VANOS variable valve timing and a Siemens MSS 54 engine management control system. Output was factory rated at 315 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a ZF five-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. The seller states the clutch components were replaced 18k miles ago and that the catalytic converters were recently replaced.

Manufacturer’s literature, service records, and the original sale contract are included in the sale.

The Carfax report shows no accidents or other damage and lists registration and service history with one registered owner in Louisiana and Florida. A lien is shown on the most recent registration entry, however, the title shows that it has been released.
