This 2001 M Coupe is a fastidiously kept S54 example, sourced by its current owner from the specialists at Enthusiast Auto Group in Ohio. At EAG the car received a comprehensive inspection in early 2015 before making its way out to NY. One of only 120 Black Sapphire Metallic cars in the US, it's a desirable spec in pristine condition inside and out.
With 77k miles on the clock the car still drives as new, thanks to rigorous maintenance and years of careful ownership. The BMW straight six pulls very hard and benefits from a Dinan chip, a desirable upgrade that seamlessly turns the wick up in this already potent engine. Thousands of dollars of recent work include a new alternator, an improved Viton CPV O-ring, rear shocks, front control arm bushings, and power steering hoses. The end result is an incredibly tight and sorted car, ready to impress while needing nothing.
Outside, the paint retains a stunning luster and deep shine, with only minor swirl marks and the occasional chip on the bumpers. The OEM Roadstar wheels were reconditioned several years ago and are like new, dressed in semi-slick Michelin Pilot Super Sports with lots of life remaining. Glass and trim are similarly tidy, the only flaw being a crack in the plastic undertray beneath the radiator.
The black leather interior is truly remarkable, with a driver's seat that looks to have had barely any wear whatsoever. Carpets throughout are similarly flawless, while the cargo net and trunk cover are present and correct. All electronics, gauges, and lights work perfectly, along with the excellent Harman Kardon sound system. EAG fixed the notorious glovebox sag issue, completing a cabin that still looks (and even smells) factory fresh.
