How many Z3 M Coupes around Toronto area? Just wondering.. It's such a hard car to find around here.. Looking to buy one... but seems like going to the US is the only option?

Any Z3 M Coupe owners wanting to sell locally?? How much should I expect to pay for a pre 2001 model??

they usually show up in autotrader close to summer. I seen some go for 25-29k. I say wait a bit and you might find one on there. New autotrader comes out online every thursday.

you could also try craigslist

yes, I've been keeping an eye on the autotrader, craigslist, kijiji, BWM used car listing, etc without any success yet!! except in the states.. and my budget only allows for a S52 coupe..

Why an M50 intake?? is that better? Have many questions for you, sent you a PM.

M50 intake has about 30% bigger intake runners and thus the engine will produce more top end hp. This is a great mod with a 3.5" euro/540 HFM, CAI, 24# injectors and schrick cams. Appropreate software of course as well. For more details visit www.sharked.com on the setup and dyno graphs. I used to have that setup on my 2.8.

More importantly be sure the get the car inspected especially around the rear subframe/differential ear mount area, as it is prone to tearing away from the trunk floor underneath. Randy Forbes from Ohio has a kit that re-enforces the diff mount and permits the replacement of the diff cover with a dual-ear e36 style diff cover setup (or upgrade to a Rouge Engineering finned cover). Its been prone to happen on even the 1.9L cars and is well documented online (the M and non-M cars use the same design and rear differential mount).

I had my tear and had it re-enforced: http://www.rmpmotors.com/menus/gallery/index.php?spgmGal=M%20Roadster%20diff%20mount%20Re-enforcement
