Seller Description

2000 Z3 M coupe. Silver exterior with straight black interior. I found this car for my best friend Steve. It was on its 2nd owner (an older couple who purchased it as it with the modifications) when we found it with about 60K miles 3 years ago. They lived in Salt Lake City, and just loved the "little car".

75K miles, unknown how many miles are on the modifications.
S52 motor of course.
AA supercharged. C30 (Rotex intercooled) 6 psi, stock pulley, never changed.
M5 Clutch/flywheel
Boost/AFR Gauges
Supersprint headers/exhaust
Brembo Driled Rotors

H&R sport Springs
Bilstein Shocks
AA sway bars
Breyton Vision Wheels (18 x 8.5 ET38 and 18 x 9.5 et 25)
New tires, 265 35 18, 225 40 18 (Hankook's I believe).

UUC Ebrake Handle
UUC Pedals

Subframe has been inspected, no issues.

100% Adult Owned for last 2 owners. Driven 15K miles by current owner in Pheonix AZ. Steve states its been the most reliable car he has every owned. He wish he could say that about his 2002 e39 540i sport. Only thing he has had to do mechanically is the Oil separator, which is typical.

Condition is Excellent. Steve Takes care of his stuff. Paint last time I saw is was a 9/10 and the interior the same, if not better. And he confirmed that. I am not the biggest fan of the gauges on the A pillar. Their accuracy is suspect. But they do register and show what going on. Just the only thing I would have done a bit differently. Otherwise, very tastefully done, good enough I told my best friend to buy it. Lots of great extras. The C30 blower kit really isn't upgradeable, but does great, even in the Pheonix heat with the A/C running. No heat soak issues like with many of the other kits out there that are mostly non intercooled. I owned a Dinan Blown M coupe, and the heat soak just killed it. I would estimate the power to be in the 300 wheel range, maybe more with the the supersprint bits. Never dyno tested. Definately a beast compared to a stock s52 and much faster than a s54 coupe.

Well, he was considering going turbo, instead of converting this car over, I recommended buying a fellow BFC forums members car. is the car he just purchased.

Price: $19,500 or best offer. We will not deny any reasonable offer. Steve is more concerned with where it goes, than with how much. Great if it could go to a forum member here.

Contact me anytime at 801-310-8170. Once things get more serious, I can put you in touch with him. We can deliver the car to Salt Lake City, or anywhere inbetween there and pheoniz AZ. Currently, the car is in Chandler, Arizona at Steves residence.

Thanks for looking, Greg Jones. AKA here on bfc as Jonesmechanical.

My Comments

Sold 9/14/10 - AutoTrader listing was removed, so I assume it sold.

8/23/10 Update - A little more information from Greg:

Yes, its a sweet deal. I just talked to him tonight. I think he would even go as low as $18,500.

Wow, those rear wheels really need spacers also. I'll make sure that the rear offsets it DIALED in if it goes to a forum member here. I made attempts to get Steve spacers for christmas (I think 12 mm) but they were on back order, and I forgot. I'm such a bad friend.

8/22/10 Update - Listed also on Bimmerforums by forum member jonesmechanical (Greg Jones). I did not know before, but he picked this coupe out for his friend and will swear by it. Greg is one of the most respected and knowledgeable people on forced-induction M Coupes. He currently owns a turbocharged M Coupe and his friends is replacing this one with another turbocharged M Coupe. If jonesmechanical swears by it, it's a really nice coupe.

7/3/10 Update - Price dropped to $19,500 from $21,499

Another supercharged coupe option. This one has higher miles and a lower price than the others. It appears to have an exhaust, Breyton Vision wheels, aluminum pedals, aftermarket shift knob and parking brake, and some accessory gauges for the supercharger. The seller didn't clean the engine up very well for the photos, but the rest of the car looks like it cleaned up pretty nice.
