Seller Description

BMW's "M" brand of automobiles are one of the the benchmarks for performance automobiles. The M-Coupe is certainly proof of this special "M" brand uniqueness, being a totally involving and extreamly entertaining sports car.  Equipped with a German masterpiece of an engine, and BMW's racing heritage, this 3.2 litre DOHC 24-valve six cylinder engine is good for 240 HP and zero to sixty times of 4.9 seconds. This engine and chassis are a tribute to BMW's remarkable engineering success as sports car builder. Combined with BMW's "M" suspension. brakes, limited slip differential, and five speed manual transmission, the result is an amazing sports car with a huge performance potentional in a straight line or carving up a winding road. With all of this performance, the M coupe still returns a respectable 29 mpg on the highway.

This "M" Coupe is fully loaded with comfort and convience items as well. Some of the equipment is as follows:
Harmon Kardon Sound System (sounds great!)
Power Tilting Glass Moon Roof
Napa Leather Seating
Power Front Seats
Heated Seats ( a great option on a cold day!)
Heated outside mirrors.
Power Door Locks, Air Conditioning, Power Windows and Cruise Control are also standard equipment.

Our featured M-Coupe is in good condition throughout. It is very apparent that this coupe was garaged for most of its life. The cosmos black metallic paint still has that new car luster, with minimal dings or scratches. The beautiful (smoke free) napa leather interior is in good shape as well. This coupe has been serviced on a regular basis at Bimmer's Clinic, a local BMW service center. With a recent inspection and service, all of the mechanicals are in acceptable working order.  With 164,000 miles (approx 12,000 miles per year) this M-coupe has been enjoyed, but still runs great.

The configeration of the coupe with its rear hatch, and good size rear compartment make it very practical as well as being entertaining to drive. The perfect companion for two people and their luggage on a road trip. The limited production numbers of the M- Coupe will insure that this "M" branded vehicle will become very collectable as time goes on. Here is a great opportinity to own a clean, one owner, clean Carfax, all origional, California car. Add in a great color combination, and you have a sports coupe that is practical, yet providing BMW's "M" performance that is nothing short of remarkable!

I'm assuming this sold at some point since they have not advertised it in forever. It's still listed for sale on their site, but then so is the coupe they sold last July...

This dealership always seems to find nice, one-owner, high mileage coupes. This one looks no different and is in surprisingly good shape for it's mileage. It appears to be all stock besides the chrome roadstars. I think the price is fair due to the condition and one-owner history.
