Seller Description

This 1999 BMW M Coupe is powered by a 3.2-liter S52 inline-six paired with a five-speed manual transmission and is finished in Arctic Silver Metallic over black Nappa leather. Equipment includes 17” style 40 wheels, Bilstein dampers, a limited-slip differential, a sunroof, heated sport seats, an alarm system, a CD stereo, a Harman Kardon sound system, and air conditioning. The car spent time on the East Coast before the seller’s 2021 acquisition and relocation to California, and they have since added approximately 2k of the 105k indicated miles. This M Coupe is now offered with a clean Carfax report and a clean California title in the seller’s name.

This M Coupe is one of 123 finished in Arctic Silver Metallic over black Nappa leather for the North American market for the model year. Features include a sunroof, front fender vents, a rear window wiper, and quad exhaust outlets. The seller states that the hood was repainted under previous ownership and the underside of the front bumper is damaged.

Gray-finished 17” style 40 wheels are mounted with Hankook Ventus V12 Evo2 tires measuring 225/45 up front and 245/40 out back. The car is equipped with Bilstein dampers and Automatic Stability Control, and braking is handled by four-wheel ventilated discs with red-finished calipers.

The cabin features black Nappa leather covering the heated sport seats, door panel inserts, and center console. Amenities include air conditioning, an alarm system, a CD stereo, a BMW performance shift knob, and a Harman Kardon sound system. A window regulator was reportedly repaired in December 2022 and the cruise control system does not work.

The M-branded leather-wrapped steering wheel features tri-color stitching and frames a tachometer with a 6,800-rpm redline, a 160-mph speedometer, and gauges for coolant temperature and fuel level. The digital odometer indicates under 105k miles, approximately 2k of which were added under current ownership.

The 3.2-liter S52B32 inline-six features VANOS variable valve timing and was factory rated at 240 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque. The oil was most recently changed in December 2022 when the hood alarm switch was also reportedly replaced.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a ZF five-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential.

The Carfax report shows no accidents or other damage and lists registration history in Massachusetts, New York, New Hampshire, and California through its most recent entry in November 2021.

It's on the other side of the country since we last saw it back in 2021. It only has 2k new miles in that time. The suspension, painted wheels an d brakes look nice together. The interior is close to stock besides the shift knob. Bidding up to $5,100.00 so far.
