Seller Description

Doug's Take

The BMW Z3 M Coupe is a seriously wonderful car that boasts excellent performance, and – most importantly – head-turning styling, combined with very interesting practicality thanks to a useful hatchback grafted onto a Z3 M Roadster. This particular M Coupe features a 5-speed manual transmission and some great factory equipment, including a limited-slip differential and a power sunroof. Plus, it comes with no major modifications, which is a great benefit that further enhances the appeal of this M Coupe.


THIS... is a 2000 BMW Z3 M Coupe, finished in Titanium Silver Metallic with a black interior.

  • This Z3 M is equipped with a 5-speed manual transmission.
  • The attached Carfax history report shows no mileage discrepancies in this BMW's past; it also lists registrations in Washington from new.
  • The managing editor of Cars & Bids, Kennan Rolsen, reviewed this BMW, and his video is viewable below.
  • According to the build sheet provided in the gallery, factory equipment includes 17-inch Style 40 wheels, a limited-slip differential, a power sunroof, Nappa leather upholstery, heated and power-adjustable sport seats, and air conditioning.
  • Modifications reported by the seller are limited to a Dinan strut tower brace, Bilstein rear struts, a Pioneer head unit, and aftermarket components in the sound system.
  • Colloquially known as the Clownshoe, the Z3 Coupe joined the Z3 roadster in showrooms for 1999. Like its convertible counterpart, it used several E36-sourced parts, but it stood out with an unusual, shooting brake-like silhouette that blurred the line between a coupe and a hatchback. The M model benefitted from the same 3.2-liter straight-6 as the M3.
  • Power comes from an S52 3.2-liter straight-6, rated at 240 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque. Output is sent to the rear wheels via a 5-speed manual transmission.


A build sheet is provided in the photo gallery, and a partial list of notable equipment includes:

  • 17-inch Style 40 wheels
  • Limited-slip differential
  • Power sunroof
  • Nappa leather upholstery
  • Heated and power-adjustable sport seats
  • M leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • Air conditioning
  • Cruise control

Known Flaws

  • The attached Carfax history report indicates that this Z3 M sustained "very minor damage" to the right rear in December 2015, "minor damage" to the rear and left rear in March 2014, and unspecified damage from hitting a parked vehicle in July 2004.
  • Paint chips and blemishes around the exterior (pictured in the gallery)
  • Cracks and paint damage underneath the front bumper
  • 2018 date codes on the tires
  • Creases and wear on the seats
  • Wear on interior touch points
  • Hazy rearview mirror
  • Missing rear window defrost button and plastic cover on the passenger's side of the center console
  • Some corrosion on the rocker panels, brake hardware, and underbody components

We last saw this coupe back in December. There was never a price posted at that point. Weirdly there's still no interior photos. The price seems a little optimistic this time.
