Seller Description

Here's your chance to own the first supercharged M Coupe Buyers Guide Project Coupe! Located at Mark's house in San Ramon, CA, this 1999 arctic silver over dark gray M Coupe has been fully sorted to our high standards. You can view the entire series of articles detailing all our work, but here's a quick summary of what we've done since obtaining this coupe:

  • New brake rotors and pads at all 4 corners
  • Refinished roadstars
  • Flushed all fluids
  • Replaced stock lights
  • Replaced stock kidneys grills
  • Replaced stock exhaust
  • Checked rear subframe and assembled hatch
  • PDRed
  • Dynoed

With this project, we decided to go for a stock exterior appearance to give little indication of the power that lies beneath. It's definitely a sleeper. With the intercooler peeking through the front grill, only the savviest of cartel members will have any clue. It also provides a blank slate for the future owner to modify to their own style. It's not only a supercharger either, it's the AA Stage 2 kit which includes both the primary kit and the level 2 upgrade featuring supporting upgrades (besides the obvious) like high-flow fuel injectors, air intake, intercooler, fuel pump and fan, 

You can get the power of an S54 for the price of an S52 with the knowledge that experienced coupe owners (and a trusted 3rd party shop) have done everything in their power to make it as nice and reliable for the next owner as possible. Service records are available for viewing as well as clean Carfax and AutoCheck reports. It's never been in an accident and has all matching VIN tags. It will be listed exclusively here for a few days to give you guys dibs before we slowly spread the listing to a wider audience. Feel free to contact me at with any questions or Mark at to setup a test drive.

Not a whole lot of comments to add since I wrote the listing myself :-). I do think we priced it at a borderline 4-star value considering the condition, supercharger, and all the recent maintenance.
