Seller Description

This 1999 BMW M Coupe remained registered in Michigan from new until 2023, and it now has under 39k miles. It is finished in Imola Red over Imola Red and black Nappa leather and is powered by a 3.2-liter S52 inline-six paired with a five-speed manual transmission. Equipment includes an aftermarket air-intake system, 17″ Style 40 wheels, a limited-slip differential, a sunroof, heated sport seats, a Harman Kardon sound system, and cruise control. Acquired by the selling dealer in 2023, this M Coupe is now offered in Illinois with a clean Carfax report and a clean Michigan title.

This M Coupe is one of 80 finished in Imola Red over Imola Red and black Nappa leather for the North American market for the model year. Features include a power sunroof, front fender vents, a rear window wiper, and quad exhaust outlets. The selling dealer notes blemishes around the body.

The 17″ Style 40 wheels are mounted with Goodyear tires. The car is equipped with Automatic Stability Control, and braking is handled by four-wheel ventilated discs.

The cabin features Imola Red and black Nappa leather covering the heated sport seats, door panel inserts, and center console. Amenities include cruise control, a cassette stereo, and a Harman Kardon sound system. Finish is missing on the center console trim near the window switches.

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 39k 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. An aftermarket air-intake system is installed. The battery was replaced in preparation for the sale.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a ZF five-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. The transmission was replaced in preparation for the sale.

The Carfax report is free of accidents or other reported damage.

Back on the market at $33,800 which seems like a pretty good deal for the low mileage.

We saw this coupe for sale privately this spring. It only has a handful of new miles, but the price is quite a bit higher. It still seems ok though for the low mileage.
