Seller Description

This 2001 BMW M Coupe is one of three examples finished in Imola Red over Dark Beige Oregon leather for the North American market for the model year. The seller acquired it in 2005 and has since added approximately 9k of the 45k indicated miles. It is powered by a 3.2-liter S54 inline-six paired with a five-speed manual transmission, and equipment includes 17″ Style 40 wheels, a limited-slip differential, a sunroof, heated sport seats, a Harman Kardon sound system, and cruise control. Modifications include Dinan engine management software, a UUC Motorwerks short shifter, aftermarket coilover suspension, and a HAMANN Motorsport exhaust system. This M Coupe is now offered with the owner’s manual, service records, an accident-free Carfax report, and a clean Florida title in the seller’s name.

This M Coupe is finished in Imola Red and features a sunroof, front fender vents, a rear window wiper, and quad exhaust outlets. The seller states that the right door was damaged in a parking lot incident and that it was repaired and repainted to address the damage. Clear paint protection film covers the hood and is cracking.

The 17″ Style 40 wheels are mounted with Kumho Ecsta Supra tires measuring 225/45 up front and 245/40 out back. Multiple wheels have curb marks. Aftermarket coilover suspension is fitted, and the car is equipped with Dynamic Stability Control and All-Season Traction (AST). Braking is handled by four-wheel ventilated discs with red-finished calipers.

The cabin features Dark Beige Oregon leather covering the heated sport seats, door panel inserts, and center console. A UUC Motorwerks short shifter is fitted, and amenities include air conditioning, cruise control, a BMW Business CD stereo, and a Harman Kardon sound system. The seller notes issues with the driver’s side seat track.

The M-branded leather-wrapped steering wheel features tri-color stitching and frames a tachometer with an 8k-rpm redline, a 170-mph speedometer, and gauges for coolant temperature and fuel level. The digital odometer indicates under 45k miles, approximately 9k of which were added under current ownership. The seller notes an intermittently illuminated traction control warning light on the dashboard.

The 3.2-liter S54B32 inline-six features double-VANOS variable valve timing and a Siemens MSS 54 engine management control system, and the seller states that Dinan engine management software is equipped.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a ZF five-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. A HAMANN Motorsport cat-back exhaust system with angled tips is fitted.

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

The Carfax report shows no accidents or other damage and lists registration history in Texas and Florida. A manufacturer emissions recall was issued in September 2006 for reprogramming the DME for OBD communication.

This is the first S54 we've seen on this side in imola red over beige because there are only 3 of them (2 with sunroofs like this one). This one has had a long-term owner which is great. It also has some good upgrades including coilovers and the rare Hamann exhaust. It looks to be in great shape overall with a slightly saggy headliner. Bidding up to $26,500.00 so far
