Seller Description

What we have here is a rare and beautiful 2001 BMW M Coupe (S54) with 64,856 miles on the odometer. This car is finished in Imola Red complemented by a Black and Imola Red Leather interior. Overall this car is outstanding and this design is a personal favorite of mine.

This rare and low mile 2001 BMW M Coupe (S54) has a full complement of options including AC, Upgraded Kenwood Stereo, Power Steering, Power Brakes, Power Windows, Full Sliding Glass Roof and Cruise Control. With regard to the engine in this car, approximately 4,000 M Coupes were produced between the years 1999-2002. However, only the 2001 and 2002 coupes had the S54 engine from the E46 M3. The engine was rated at 315hp and only 700 were made for the US market.

In addition here are a list of aftermarket options that make this car special:

TC Kline S/A Coilovers new at 61,000 miles (Stock Suspension Available)
CSL Style Carbon Fiber Airbox
ZHP Short Shift Knob
Clear Side Markers
HID Headlights
Leather Z Armrest
Leather Z Magnetic Stoneguards (included but not on the car)
Covercraft Dustop Custom Fit Car Cover
?All recent maintenance performed including:

BMW Inspection 2 with valve adjustment at 60,000 miles
Regular Oil Changes and Maintenance (Time Based Due to Low Miles Driven)
No SubFrame Issues ( Regularly Inspected)
New Tires - Continental Extreme Contact DW with 4,000 Miles
This is a three owner car that has been well cared for and never tracked at all. She was stored every winter and driven sparingly in the summer - to the tune of an average of 5,000 miles a year.

If you are looking for a rare, well built performance car at a good price, this might well be the car for you.  Do not let the opportunity to own this car pass you by.  We have priced her to provide you the best deal on a car of this caliber.

Previous Listing:
For the very first time we are pleased to present and review this beautiful Z3 M Coupe currently owned by Paul and located in Andover, MA.

It's a 2001 in Imola Red over  Imola Red & Black Nappa interior with 64,500 miles.  Relatively common given 201 sunroofed Coupes were built in this combination but the mileage is right where you'd expect a weekend driver to be. What really separates this car from the rest though lies underneath the hood. After carefully examining both it's beauty and it's imperfections the CSL Carbon intake was clearly the showstopper. I had the pleasure to hear it first hand as I leisurely shifted through it's gears, smiling every time I heard the unique sound that would only come from a CSL intake. 

Needless to say the driving experience was wonderful.  The TC Kline Single Adjustable Suspension was dialed in perfectly for the driver who appreciates a slightly stiffer ride without sacrificing comfort. Shifting was also no problem as the ZHP knob and clutch felt both familiar and effortless through each gear. And did I mention the Intake? I could not stop gushing over how wonderful it sounded as we accelerated through the RPMs

All in all I was pleasantly surprised with this Coupe. I anticipate the next owner will be a value oriented enthusiast looking to drive the snot out of this thing, and I won't blame him!

This is the first of a new type of listing where a member of the Project Coupe team inspects, describes and drives a coupe for you. Rick did a great job with this one. I'm a little jealous as I have still have not heard a CSL-style airbox on an S54, but I'd love too. I think it's priced very fairly.
