Seller Description

This 2002 BMW M Coupe was acquired by the current owner in 2013, and it has reportedly been modified with revised engine management software as well as a Diffsonline limited-slip differential, a short shifter kit, window tinting, aftermarket exhaust components, a high-flow air mass meter, and a Dinan cold-air intake and front strut tower brace. The car is finished in Black Sapphire Metallic over Black Nappa leather and is powered by a 3.2-liter S54 inline-six paired with a five-speed manual transmission. It also has 17″ Style 40 wheels, a sunroof, heated sport seats, an illuminated ZHP shift knob, a CD stereo, a Harman Kardon sound system, air conditioning, and cruise control. This M Coupe has 67k miles and is now offered by the seller on behalf of the owner with a car cover, a tool kit, a window sticker, service records, a Carfax report, and a Maryland title in the owner’s name.

This M Coupe is one of 27 examples finished in Black Sapphire Metallic over Black Nappa leather with a sunroof for the North American market for the model year. Exterior details consist of front fender vents, a rear window wiper, and quad exhaust outlets. The Carfax report lists damage to the left side in a November 2010 entry, which the seller reports was the result of a parking lot incident. Tinting has been applied to the windshield as well as the side and rear windows. Discoloration is shown on the rear window, and close-up photos of exterior imperfections are viewable in the gallery below.

Silver-finished 17″ Style 40 wheels are mounted with 225/45 front and 245/40 rear Kumho Ecsta V730 tires. The car is equipped with Dynamic Stability Control and All-Season Traction (AST), and braking is handled by four-wheel ventilated discs.

The cabin features Black Nappa leather covering the heated sport seats, door panel inserts, and center console. A billet short shifter kit has reportedly been added along with the illuminated ZHP shift knob and driver’s door cupholder insert, and additional amenities include air conditioning, cruise control, a retractable rear cargo area cover, a rear cargo partition net, a CD stereo, and a Harman Kardon sound system. The seller reports that sound insulation has been installed under the rear floor.

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 67k miles, approximately 15k of which were added under current ownership. The face plate under the light switch has separated, and it is included in the sale.

The 3.2-liter S54B32 inline-six is spanned by a Dinan front strut tower brace, and it features double-VANOS variable valve timing, a Siemens MSS 54 engine management control system, and a Dinan cold-air intake. Additional include a high-flow air mass meter, Stage 4 engine management software, and aftermarket exhaust components with 76mm tips, according to the seller. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a ZF five-speed manual transmission and a three-disc limited-slip differential that is said to have been sourced from Diffsonline.

A car cover and a tool kit are included in the sale.

The window sticker is also included in the sale along with service records displayed in the gallery.

The Carfax report lists the aforementioned damage report.

The current Maryland title carries a duplicate notation.

We last saw this coupe for sale in New Jersey way back in 2013. It has about 15k miles in those 11 years which is pretty reasonable. The couple upgrades I see are the ZHP shift knob and LeatherZ armrest. Under the hood they have Dinan intake and strut bar. Bidding up to $15,000.00 so far.
