How many Z3M Coupes in Toronto?

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

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/galle...Re-enforcement
