This is one of 678 BMW Z3 M Coupes produced with an S54 engine, one of 340 built in 2002, and one of only 24 S54 M
Coupes in Steel Gray with a Dark Gray/Black interior and a sunroof. It is a rare car with a clean CARFAX, complete
ownership history, extensive service logs and very few tasteful modifications.
This car is absolutely stunning! This has been my dream car since I first saw one at a dealership in the
Netherlands during a European vacation.
This Coupe currently has 39, 150 miles, has always been garaged and has almost spent its entire life in Southern
California (with the exception of ~7 months in Chicago). It is completely stock with the exception of a Dinan ECU
Tune (originally done at Avus Autosport in Glendale, CA and later reflashed/updated by Bullet Performance in Costa
Mesa, CA), a Strong Strut strut tower brace (installed by Bill Jacobs BMW in Naperville, IL), a weighted ZHP gear
shift knob and center console from Leather Z, drilled rotors and magnetic OEM BMW stone guards (in front of rear
Mechanically, this car is perfect. It just went through a major service at The M Shop in Los Angeles where it had
Service 2, a new OEM clutch, all new fluids (brake/coolant/diff flushes), new filters (air, fuel & oil), new belts,
new high pressure power steering line, new door lock tumbler (passenger door was spinning), new door handle trim,
new driver-side window motor and repaired regulator mount (the windows operate flawlessly), new seat rail bushings
(prevents the “rocking seat” issue), fixed some cosmetic imperfections and had some other misc jobs done (full
documentation available upon request). The car has a recent set of Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires (less than 500
miles on them), a new battery and a new set of windshield wipers. It’s turnkey and ready for the next owner to
The car has never had any paintwork aside from the removal of a barely visible door ding in the driver door (via
Paintless Dent Removal), the results are flawless. The car also does not have any accident history. The only
flaws in the paintwork are some very minor (nearly invisible even when close) stone chips on the front end, a tiny
scratch on the driver mirror and a few marks under the “fangs” on the front bumper. The wheels are virtually
perfect with the exception of one small pock mark on the front left/driver wheel. I’ve attempted to capture
everything in the photographs, so please review them closely!
The interior is in terrific shape as well, the bolsters don’t show any wear and the floor/trunk mats and carpet
are in excellent shape. The car has never been smoked in and there are zero unusual odors. The rearview mirror
was proactively sent back to Sybesma’s Electonics in 2013 for refurbishment prior to experiencing any issues
associated with the bubbling fluid problems that have damaged many Z3 dashboards (this one is perfect).
This is also the actual car that was featured in the May 2007 issue of Bimmer magazine, where Alexander Palevsky
compares the original M Coupe to its Z4 successor. It’s a great read and certainly a highlight in the cars
history (I’ll include a copy of the article with the sale)!
Included with the sale is the owernship history and current CARFAX report, a service records/history folder, a copy
of the Bimmer magazine article, a USB thumb drive containing documents and images from when I purchased the car,
amber BMW corner markers, original BMW center console, BMW battery tender (plugs into cigarette lighter socket),
two keys (one with working push-button light, one inside BMW leather pouch), glovebox owners manual/documentation
(with additional plastic key), radio security code, new Bentley Z3 service manual, a Dorkfest t-shirt from 2012
(XL, never worn), front license plate bracket & frame, and a clean CA Certificate of Title in my name.
In terms of ownership history, I am the fifth owner of the car. It was originally leased in Los Angeles, CA and
subsequently purchased by the original lessee. It was then purchased by a gentleman in Glendale, CA in 2005 when
the car had about 19k miles. Only a few months after purchasing the car, he then sold it to another gentleman in
San Clemente, CA that kept it until 2010 when i
