There’s a dark gray S54 powered M Coupe trolling around town and it’s got my radar up. Then this very low mileage BMW M Coupe appeared in my feed reader from Roadfly. Only 14k miles, black on black, and with the absolutely wonderful S54 M3 motor. Take a look at these pictures from the gallery website:
quote from seller’s Roadfly listing:
You will not find a nicer or lower mileage M Coupe than mine. It has always been garage kept, pampered, and only driven in nice weather. I am the second owner. Both myself and the first owner only ever used it as a weekend, drive-in-the-country toy (as the ultra low mileage suggests). It has never been abused or taken on the track. It has always been dealer serviced (by both myself and the first owner). I have all of the service records as does the national BMW registry if you want your BMW dealer to research the VIN for you. I always warmed the car up to temp before driving.
Since you are looking at this ad, you probably already know how rare the 2001 and 2002 M Coupes are. These were the only 2 years that BMW graced the M Coupe with the 315hp S54 engine… straight out of the (heavier) M3. With a total of only 690 of the 315hp (S54) M Coupes built for the North American market, mine is probably the lowest mileage, most pristine, non-modified example left in the country. Aside from regular dealer service, the only thing I had done to the car was a light window tint (35%) which was done with the best tint material (Formula 1 Pinnacle series), and it was done at Accutint in Bellevue, WA. It also has 4 Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires with less than 4,000 miles on them.
Sex on wheels should be the description for this car. After driving a 2003 e46 M3 with this motor, I’ll bet this smaller and lighter car absolutely flies with the same engine. Clean M Coupes with the earlier S52 motor seem to fall in the 18-22k range. The asking on this one is $24.5k, which sure seems like damn good value to me with the low miles and preferred motor.
