Seller Description

This 2002 BMW M-Coupe is a stock 42k-miles example with the the desirable S54 engine shared with the E46 M3. Black Sapphire Metallic over Black Nappa leather is a great combo and this example retains original paint and interior. The car has had a recent service and with new fluids in preparation for sale and is sold with a clean Arizona title and clean Carfax report. Just 340 M Coupes were produced for the 2002 model year.

Paint has been verified with a meter and registers even numbers all around. Staggered five spoke wheel and in good condition and the car sits at stock ride height. No major flaws are apparent on the car’s exterior, and all of the correct trim remains fitted throughout.

Factory VIN stickers remain fitted and the car has never been hit. New Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires have been fitted. It was sold new in Arizona where it has remained since 2002.

Black leather seating surfaces appear very clean throughout. Some minor crinkling can be seen near the base of the driver’s seat, but no splitting or cracking of the material is apparent. Likewise the leather wrapped steering wheel, shift boot and e-brake handle and boot show very well. Seat bushings have been replaced.

Interior equipment remains standard, including the stock headunit. Carpets and plastic trim all show very well throughout.

Factory accessory M floor mats are a nice touch and include the rear cargo mat. Note the clean rear bumper and quad exhaust.

Good for 315 horsepower and 252 ft. lbs. of torque in M Coupe trim, this 42k mile S54 benefits from a recent valve adjustment and fresh oil and filter. Additionally the transmission, rear diff and brake system have all been flushed and filled with fresh fluid and the rear shock mounts replaced. The subframe has been thoroughly inspected and remains in like-new condition. The car is sold with a clean Arizona title and clean Carfax, attached below.
