Seller Description

1999 BMW Z3 M Coupe for sale! It's originally a California car and has 105k miles. I have owned the car for the last 3 years and I have meticulously logged all the maintenance and upgrades on the car. The S52 engine head was rebuilt less than 1500 miles ago due to a stripped spark plug. Also, the entire cooling system was upgraded less than 800 miles ago (known weak point in the S52). It has a branded California title from passenger fender and front bumper damage. There was no frame or suspension damage and I have pictures available before repairs were made. I searched over a year before deciding on this car, so if you are concerned with a branded title don't be because this car a gem.

I am selling it because I plan on buy a house soon and I just don't drive it enough.

Here is a list of the maintenance/modifications:

- Randy Forbes Rear Subframe Reinforcement
- Randy Forbes Double Eye Differential Mount
- H&R Sport Springs
- Treehouse Racing FCAB
- AKG Rear Subframe Bushings

- Riot Racing Camshafts
- Recently Resurfaced Cylinder Head and New Head Gasket
- Supersprint BMS Exhaust
- Kassel Performance ECU (7,200 Rev Limit, EWS Delete, Secondary Air Pump Delete, Post-Cat O2 Sensors delete)
- Upgraded VANOS Seals (Besian System kit)
- Stainless Steel Clutch Line
- New Pre-Cat O2 Sensors

- S54 3-Core Radiator
- 16" Spal Electric Fan with Mishimoto Adjustable Fan Controller
- Silicone Radiator Hoses (Ireland Engineering)
- Aluminum Thermostat Housing (Uro)
- 80°C Thermostat
- Stewart High Performance Water Pump
- Aluminum Water Pump Pulley (Ireland Engineering)
- Custom Coolant Reservoir Bracket

- OEM Euro M-Tech 3-Spoke Steering Wheel
- Alpine 149BT Headunit
- Alpine PDX5 Amplifier
- AC Schnitzer Type-2 3-Piece Wheels (Real)

I am asking $17,000 and the price is firm. These cars are very rare and have appreciated significantly over the last few years and will continue to appreciate.

Aside from the salvage title (which sounds well documented), this seems like a lot of coupe for the money. High points are the Randy Forbes kit, AKG subframe bushings, Supersprint exhaust, new cooling system, and of course the AC Schnitzer Type 2 race wheels. I think it's a pretty good deal.
