Seller Description

This 2002 BMW Z3 3.0i coupe spent time in Oregon prior to its acquisition in February 2014 by the seller, who has since added approximately 36k of the 61k indicated miles. The car is powered by a 3.0-liter inline-six paired with a five-speed automatic transmission, and it is finished in Pistachio Green Metallic over black Nappa leather. Equipment includes black-finished 18″ alloy wheels, a sunroof, a CD stereo, cruise control, and air conditioning. The windshield washer pump was replaced in December 2019. This Z3 coupe is now offered with a window sticker, the owner’s manual, service records, keys, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Maryland title in the seller’s name.

The car is finished in Pistachio Green Metallic (468) and features a power-operated glass sunroof, fog lights, flared wheel arches, a rear window wiper, front fender vents, and dual exhaust outlets. The windshield washer pump was replaced in December 2019, and the seller notes that the left rocker panel was repaired after the car ran over highway debris. The driver’s door handle occasionally sticks when lifted, and cracked paint-protection film on the nose is shown up close in the gallery below.

Black-finished 18″ wheels with polished lips are mounted with Nokian Hakkapeliitta tires. A spare set of 17″ wheels mounted with Continental tires is included in the sale and pictured in the gallery below. Stopping power is provided by four-wheel disc brakes with ventilated front rotors.

The cabin features two bucket seats trimmed in black Nappa leather, and matching leather extends to the center console and door panel inserts. Amenities include a CD stereo, an onboard computer, cruise control, and air conditioning.

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 61k miles, approximately 36k of which were added during current ownership.

The 3.0-liter M54B30 inline-six was factory rated at 225 horsepower and 214 lb-ft of torque. An oil change was performed recently, and the serpentine belts and tensioner were reportedly replaced in 2022.

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

The window sticker lists initial delivery to BMW of Eugene, Oregon, as well as optional equipment, colors, and a total suggested retail price of $40,695.

The Carfax report shows no accidents or damage and lists registration history in Oregon and Maryland.

Reserve not met at just $16,000 which is way low. I wonder if all the coupe shoppers were watching the steel gray coupe auction on Cars & Bids ending at pretty much exactly the same time.

I have a soft spot for pistachio after having one as a Project Coupe. It's 1 of 2 as optioned, the other one has >100k more miles and a salvage title. It looks great and stock besides the wheels. It does have an automatic transmission though. Bidding up to $13,666.00 so far
