    2000 M Coupe - Blk/Blk - 71Kmi - $17.5K OBO

    Reduced price.

    With regret, I am posting my 2000 BMW M Coupe for sale. I love this car, but it just doesnít fit in my growing family so Iím hoping to pass it along to another enthusiast who will appreciate this car as much or even more than I do.

    Car Details:
    MY2000, BMW M Coupe
    VIN: available on request
    Exterior: Cosmos Black
    Interior: Black Nappa
    Mileage: 70,8xx Ė still drive occasionally
    Located in SF Bay Area. CA only car (originally from Bevery Hills)

    I am the 2nd owner, having owned the car since early 2003. It currently has ~71K miles. I have driven the car approximately 36K or a little over 4K/yr during my ownership. I have done most of the maintenance myself over the years and have receipts for just about everything. I also have detailed records in Excel showing when mods were installed, maintenance performed, etcÖ.The car has been very reliable and hasnít needed anything beyond normal maintenance. I have never tracked the car, but I have gone to the occasional BMWCCA autox, perhaps 3-4 times in total. The same was true of the PO. Needless to say, the car does have some modifications.

    The car has been recently serviced. This includes an oil change, brake fluid flush and complete F&R OEM brake rotor and Hawk HPS pad replacement. Beyond the maintenance already performed, the car requires a new set of tires (currently has Kumho MX 235F/255R) and new serpentine belts although neither are super urgent. Since I am no longer driving the car, I have elected to leave the tires for now so the new owner can choose their own replacements. The existing Kumhoís are probably good for another 3-5K.

    The paint is not perfect thanks to horrible CA roads. Itís decent, but youíre not going to win a concours with it. There are paint chips in the bumper, hood and fender wings. The front bumper has some hairline cracks as well. It has over 70K miles so it comes with the mileage and driving conditions. I have always used Klasse AIO and glaze with occasional clay bar so the paint without chips/scratches is in great shape. Since the car is black, some of these flaws are more noticeable than on other colors. The interior is in great shape given the age/mileage. Very minor signs of wear on the driverís seat bolster, but thatís about it. Floormats are new.

    There is no stereo installed. The PO took this out to install an VDO oil pressure gauge and Iíve left it that way. Iím not an audiophile by any stretch. I no longer have the original BMW Business cassette stereo, but they arenít very good anyway. I do have all of the remaining stereo components including the amp, subwoofer enclosure, speakers, etcÖ.so it can be returned back to stock with an afternoon of work if you get a stereo. I would recommend installing the VDO oil pressure gauge in the analog clock position if you were to do so for a clean OEM look. The analog clock would be superfluous with a stereo that shows time. I prefer the existing location since itís easier to keep an eye on though.

    Although the Carfax is clean, the car has been in a minor accident. I was rear-ended at a yield sign at ~5mph in 2004. This required replacement of the rear bumper and bumper supports, but there was no structural damage. Have all receipts and original estimate was <$750 so it was not reported to DMV and thus, does not show up on a Carfax report. All work done by B-Line in San Jose who is known for their great paintwork on BMWs. I paid out of pocket $500 additional beyond the estimate to get it repaired there to my satisfaction. Repair is fully documented of course.

    Additional pictures, Carfax and maintenance spreadsheet available upon request.

    Caution! DO NOT TEST DRIVE THIS CAR!

    You would sell your first born to get this car.

    Like Opiates, it is physically addicting and you will suffer from withdrawal.

    All you will be able to think about is your next fix, your next power slide.
