Seller Description

This 2000 BMW M coupe is powered by a 3.2-liter S52 inline-six paired with a five-speed manual transmission and is finished in Dakar Yellow II over black Nappa leather upholstery. Equipment includes silver-finished 17″ Style 40 wheels, a limited-slip differential, a glass sunroof, heated power-adjustable sport seats, air conditioning, cruise control, a retractable cargo cover, and a Harman Kardon sound system linked with a BMW Business AM/FM/cassette stereo and a remote six-disc CD changer. The car has been registered in several states and was previously sold on BaT in October 2019 prior to the selling dealer’s acquisition in 2023. Past work completed in 2019 included a rebuild of the VANOS system along with replacement of the air conditioning compressor and condenser, and the fan clutch. This M Coupe has 58k miles and is now offered by the selling dealer with a clean Carfax report and a clean Pennsylvania title.

This M Coupe is one of approximately 41 examples finished in Dakar Yellow II (337) over black Nappa leather for the North American market for the model year. Features include a glass sunroof, front fender vents, a rear window wiper, tinted glass, and quad exhaust outlets. Paint protection film was applied to the exterior under prior ownership, and the front-lower valance was repainted.

Silver-finished 17″ Style 40 wheels are mounted with 225/45 front and 255/40 rear Yokohama Advan Sport A/S+ tires that show 2023 and 2014 date codes, respectively. Braking is handled by four-wheel ventilated discs. The rear shock mounts were reportedly replaced in 2019. Chips are visible on the wheels.

The heated power-adjustable sport seats are trimmed in black Nappa leather with contrasting stitching that extends to the center console and door handles. Appointments include air conditioning, cruise control, a leather-wrapped shift knob, M-branded floor mats, and a 10-speaker Harman Kardon sound system linked with a BMW Business AM/FM/cassette stereo and a remote six-disc CD changer located in the trunk. A rear partition net and a retractable cargo cover are fitted. A replacement evaporator core was installed in June 2018 while the fan clutch, air conditioning compressor, and air conditioning condenser were replaced in September 2019.

The M Sport leather-wrapped steering wheel features tri-color stitching and fronts chrome-rimmed instrumentation consisting of a 160-mph speedometer, an 8k-rpm tachometer, and gauges for coolant temperature and fuel level. The digital odometer indicates 58k miles.

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. A rebuild of the VANOS was completed under prior ownership in 2019, and an oil change was carried out in preparation for the sale.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a ZF five-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. Rust is present on the underbody components, and additional photos are provided in the gallery.

The Carfax report shows no accidents or damage and displays history in Pennsylvania, New York, Texas, New Mexico, Kansas, and Pennsylvania.

Back on the market and now priced at $39,980 which seems ok to me. Not sure why it did so poorly on Bring a Trailer.

Reserve not met at $27,500 which it should not have been. It does need some TLC though like the headliner and mis-aligned hood which may have turned off bidders.

Bidding up to $25,000

It's been almost 4 years since we last saw this coupe on Bring a Trailer. It looks to still be in great shape besides the sagging headliner. I imagine it will sell much higher this time around. Bidding up to $15,999.00 so far.
