Seller Description

This 2001 BMW Z3 3.0i coupe is powered by a 3.0-liter inline-six linked with a five-speed automatic transmission and a limited-slip differential, and it was acquired by the seller in 2022. Subsequent work included servicing the differential, flushing the transmission fluid, recharging the air conditioning system, and replacing the serpentine belt, air mass meter boot, spark plugs, assorted suspension components, and the front brake pads and rotors. Finished in Alpine White over Beige Nappa leather, the car is equipped with 17″ Style 32 alloy wheels, a sunroof, a CD stereo, cruise control, and air conditioning, and an aftermarket rearview mirror linked with forward and rearview cameras. This Z3 coupe has 76k miles and is now offered with manufacturer’s literature, two keys, service records, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Washington title in the seller’s name.

Alpine White paint finishes the exterior, and features include a power-operated glass sunroof, fog lights, flared wheel arches, a rear window wiper, front fender vents, and dual exhaust outlets. A detachable foam front spoiler was added under previous ownership, and the windshield washer pump was replaced in November 2022. There is discoloration at the lower corners of the rear hatch glass, and close-up photos of scratches and imperfections are viewable in the gallery below.

The 17″ Style 32 alloy wheels are mounted with 225/45 front and 245/40 rear Continental ExtremeContact Sport tires. The front brake pads, wear sensors, and rotors were replaced along with the inner and outer tie rod ends in November 2022, and a brake fluid flush was completed at that time. Replacement front lower control arm bushings were installed and an alignment was performed in April 2023.

The bucket seats are trimmed in beige Nappa leather and are complemented by a color-coordinated dashboard, center console, door panels, and carpets. Wood veneer trim accents the center console, and an aftermarket rearview mirror linked with forward and rearview cameras has been installed. Additional appointments include a CD stereo, an onboard computer, cruise control, air conditioning, and all-weather floor mats. The seller states that a Bluetooth Apple CarPlay adaptor has been installed. There is wear on the driver’s seat.

A leather-wrapped sport 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 76k miles, approximately 1,700 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. Maintenance performed following the seller’s acquisition in 2022 included cleaning the induction system, recharging the air conditioning system, and replacing the air filter, spark plugs, and serpentine belt. The air mat meter boot was replaced in January 2023, and an oil change was performed in December of that year.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a five-speed automatic transmission and a limited-slip differential. The transmission fluid was flushed and the gear oil in the differential was changed in November 2022.

Manufacturer’s literature, a tool kit, two keys, and a remote fob are included in the sale.

The Carfax report is free of accidents or other reported damage.

The current Washington title was signed and dated by the seller in October 2022.

Reserve not met at $15,000. It's back on AutoTrader for $17,500 which is fair.

It's on the other side of the country since we last saw it for sale back in 2022 in NY. It has about 1500 new miles and looks much the same. The price seems alright.
