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 Imola Red over Black Nappa leather. It was previously sold on BaT in November 2022 before being acquired by the seller in 2023, and it now has 43k miles. Equipment includes silver 17″ Style 40 wheels, a limited-slip differential, a power sunroof, heated power-adjustable sport seats, air conditioning, a Continental stereo, and a Harman Kardon sound system. This M Coupe is offered with a window sticker, manufacturer’s literature, service records, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Illinois title in the seller’s name.

This M Coupe is one of 60 examples finished in Imola Red over Black Nappa leather for the North American market for the model year. Features include front fender vents, ceramic window tint film, a power sunroof, a rear window wiper, and quad exhaust outlets. The seller reports that a ceramic coating was applied to the paint in 2022. Blemishes in the finish are shown up close in the gallery below.

Silver 17″ Style 40 wheels were mounted with 225/45 front and 245/40 rear Yokohama Advan Apex V601 tires in 2022. Braking is handled by four-wheel ventilated discs, and the front and rear pads and rotors were replaced in 2022.

The cabin features Black Nappa leather covering the heated power-adjustable sport seats, door panel inserts, and center console. Amenities include air conditioning, cruise control, an alarm system, a Bluetooth-capable Continental stereo, and a Harman Kardon sound system. The seller states that the seat rail bushings were changed in 2022, and the CD changer is not hooked up.

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 fuel level and coolant temperature. A VDO analog clock and instruments for voltage and oil temperature are positioned in the center stack. The digital odometer indicates 43k miles, approximately 4k of which were added under current ownership.

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. The battery, air filter, belts, and hoses were replaced in 2022 and the oil was changed 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 Carfax report is free of accidents or other damage.

As mentioned, we last saw this coupe for sale on Bring a Trailer a little over a year ago. It has about 4k new miles and looks mostly the same. The previously applied ceramic coating, really makes the imola red paint pop. Bidding up to $1,234.00 so far.
