Seller Description

This 1999 BMW Z3 coupe was initially delivered to Stevens Creek BMW in Santa Clara, California, and remained in the state through the current owner’s acquisition in January 2022. The car is powered by a 2.8-liter inline-six paired with a five-speed manual transmission and is finished in Cosmos Black Metallic over black Nappa leather. Equipment includes a sunroof, a CD stereo, a Harman Kardon sound system, burl wood trim, cruise control, air conditioning, and 17″ alloy wheels. This Z3 coupe has 59k miles and is now offered on dealer consignment with a window sticker, manufacturer’s literature, a clean Carfax report, and a clean California title.

The car is finished in Cosmos Black Metallic and features a power-operated glass sunroof, a rear window wiper, fog lights, front fender vents, flared wheel arches, and dual exhaust outlets. The selling dealer notes that it is difficult to release the outer left door latch, and scuffs are visible on the leading edge of the front bumper cover. Close-up photos of the paint, lenses, and trim are provided in the gallery below.

Silver-finished 17″ Style 32 alloy wheels are mounted with Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus front tires and Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 rear tires measuring 225/45 and 245/40, respectively. Stopping power is provided by anti-lock four-wheel disc brakes with ventilated front rotors.

The cabin features two power-adjustable sport seats trimmed in black Nappa leather, and matching leather extends to the center console and door panel inserts. Amenities include burl wood trim, an onboard computer, cruise control, air conditioning, a CD stereo, a Harman Kardon sound system, a cargo net, and power windows and door locks. The selling dealer notes that the headliner is sagging.

The leather-wrapped steering wheel frames a 155-mph speedometer and a tachometer with a 6,200-rpm redline as well as gauges for coolant temperature and fuel level. The digital odometer indicates 59k miles, approximately 2k of which were added during current ownership.

The 2.8-liter M52TUB28 inline-six was factory rated at 193 horsepower and 206 lb-ft of torque. The car most recently passed a California emissions test in November 2021.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a five-speed manual transmission.

The window sticker shows initial delivery to Stevens Creek BMW and lists factory colors, equipment, and a total price of $39,350.

The Carfax report shows no accidents or other damage and lists history in California.

This coupe was briefly listed on Craigslist back in January. Good to see photos this time. It's super clean and looks to be all stock. Bidding up to $4,419.00 so far.
