Seller Description

This 1999 BMW Z3 2.8 coupe is powered by a 2.8-liter inline-six paired with a five-speed manual transmission and is finished in Arctic Silver Metallic over black Nappa leather. Equipment includes 17″ Style 32 alloy wheels, a sunroof, heated seats, a BMW Business CD stereo, cruise control, an onboard computer, and air conditioning. The car was initially delivered to BMW of Seattle in Washington prior to the seller’s acquisition in 2021 and now has 68k miles. A replacement radiator, front brake rotors and pads, intake boot, water pump, cooling fan, drive belts and tensioners, and coolant expansion tank were reportedly fitted in 2021, and service in 2022 consisted of changing the oil, lubricating the window regulators, and replacing the power steering pump, reservoir, and lines in addition to the VANOS control lines. This Z3 coupe is now offered at no reserve with a window sticker, service records, spare parts, factory literature, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Colorado title in the seller’s name.

The car is finished in Arctic Silver Metallic and features a power-operated glass sunroof, fog lights, flared wheel arches, a rear window wiper, front fender vents, a roof spoiler, and dual exhaust outlets. Scratches and chips are noted on the body, the clear coat is peeling on the hood, and a crack in the paint is located on the left door. Close-up photos of various imperfections are provided in the gallery below.

The 17″ Style 32 alloy wheels are mounted with Michelin Pilot Sport All Season 4 tires showing 2020 date codes and measuring 225/45 up front and 245/40 at the rear. Stopping power is provided by four-wheel disc brakes with ventilated front rotors. Tire tread depth measurements are presented in the gallery, and curb damage is visible on the wheels. According to the seller, the front brake rotors and pads were replaced in February 2021, and the power steering pump, reservoir, and lines were replaced in 2022.

The cabin features two heated bucket seats trimmed in black Nappa leather, while wood trim accents the center console and center stack. Carpeted floor mats line the footwells, and amenities include a BMW Business CD stereo, an onboard computer, cruise control, a rear cargo cover, and air conditioning. Wear is visible on the seats, and the right door locks intermittently. Replacement seat rail bushings were fitted in 2021, and the window regulators were lubricated in 2022.

The leather-wrapped steering wheel shows wear and frames a 155-mph speedometer, a tachometer with a 6,200-rpm redline, and gauges for coolant temperature and fuel level. The digital odometer indicates 68k miles.

The 2.8-liter M52TUB28 inline-six was factory rated at 190 horsepower and 206 lb-ft of torque. Service in 2020 reportedly consisted of replacing the intake boot, radiator, coolant hoses, water pump, cooling fan, thermostat, coolant expansion tank, drive belts, and tensioners, while work carried out in 2022 included changing the oil and replacing the VANOS control lines.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a five-speed manual transmission. Additional photos of the underside are presented in the gallery below.

The window sticker lists initial delivery to BMW Seattle in Washington, along with colors, equipment, options, and a total suggested retail price of $39,820.

The Carfax report shows no accidents or other damage and lists history in Washington, California, Arkansas, Oregon, and Colorado through the most recent entry in December 2021. An April 2002 entry notes the car was repossessed.

We've seen this coupe a couple times on the market in Colorado the past few years. Mileage has increased slowly and is still pretty reasonable. It's mostly stock besides the very hard to find mud flaps. This is a no reserve auction which is exciting. Bidding up to $2,222.00 so far.
