1998 BMW M Roadster
Hello, Thank you for looking at my posting. I'm selling my baby as I have replaced her with a Porsche. I'm sad to see her go as I've had nothing but pure enjoyment ever since purchase. The price is $19,000 O.B.O It's being sold with Safety Certification and E-Tested both have already been done for a quick sale. You can contact me on my cell: 647-293-1502
Here are some details about the car. It has 107,000 kms on it. It's an Ontario car can not from the U.S! It has never been winter driven and has always been garage stored. I have taken care of any mechanical items required during the life of the car as well as used high end motor oil to ensure the longest life of the engine with frequent oil changes throughout the season.
I have done a couple projects in the past two years including new ipod control sony cd deck, new tires, upgraded marker lights and HID (XENON) headlights. I have the original parts to revert back to factory if wanted.
BMW led a wave of new German roadsters when it introduced the Z3 in early 1996. The Z3 is the first BMW roadster to be sold in America since the legendary 507 was discontinued in 1959. While the Z3's retro styling has the feel of classic roadsters, the car is thoroughly modern, foregoing no creature comfort or ergonomic consideration. For 1998, BMW's M motorsports division has added the Z3 to its collection of high-performance M models with the addition of the M Roadster. Equipped with the same engine as the powerful M3 and styling befitting of an M car, the new lightweight M Roadster can reach 60 mph in just over five seconds.
This is a well kept, great looking sporty luxury convertible. The vehicle has been made and assembled entirely in Germany, and consists only of Germany made parts! This roadster is renowned in the world for its unique combination of luxury and superior performance thanks to its award winning 3.2L 6 cylinder engine and almost 50/50 weight ratio, it has great performance to it - it handles and performs as you would expect such a highly acclaimed luxury vehicle! The Red exterior combined with the black leather interior gives the car a certain kind of unique classy appeal. It's a never smoked in great sporty looking roadster. Xenon lights make the car look gorgeous at dark! They are also more reliable and less tiring for eyes at night. Upgrade Stereo system includes AUX input and Ipod connector allowing you to control play lists etc. directly from the deck and not the ipod itself to keep it easy to control and access your music. Minor interior refinishes like the M stainless steel pedals and cup holder arm rest with storage compartment. New Tires replaced last season complement the aftermarket over sized rims.
The engine is an exceptional 3.2L inline 6 - one of the most powerful in the segment - runs strong and smooth provides the power you have come to expect from a BMW. The transmission has the BMW mark on it as well and shifts like on a new car, no skips or slips on shifts - actually it does it so smoothly that you can't feel it shifting. The car runs great! The engine compartment is clean.
The power convertible top is in great shape and works perfectly.
The A/C works well and blows cold air! We had our mechanic check the car and no problems whatsoever were found with it.
As you can judge for yourself from the pictures - the interior is clean while the seats show almost no wear!
The power locks, windows and mirrors all work and are in excellent condition. It also features dual heated seats. All the power controls and buttons work.
This is a very nice looking vehicle. It's obviously been garage kept, and is in great condition. Needs nothing but a proud owner to be perfect.
