Default 2000 M Roadtser w/ no motor FOR SALE!!

http://forums.bimmerforums.com/forum...d.php?t=917037 - Original ad is here

The car is a 2000 M Roadster with ~25k miles. Alot of work and great parts are in this car. Here are some facts and highlights about the car....

Drivetrain:
-No motor included (but I have a US S50B30 90% assembled available if interested)
-ZF 5-Speed tranny and driveshaft
-"Boxed" rear diff mount
-Quaife 2.79 LSD (very low miles)
-Rogue diff cover
-stock radiator and Fluidyne radiator included
-tranny cross member with solid mounts

Suspension:

-D/A Advance Design Coilovers (w/ traditional separated rears)
-Ground Control Offset control arm bushings
-Aluminum control arms
-Ground control rear shock mounts

Brakes:
- Front: Wilwood "Superlite" 4-piston calipers with thin disk rotors (non-vented). These are extremely light. Extra set of rotors and pads included.
-Rears: stock calipers and Hawk HP+ pads (IIRC)

Wheels/Tires:
-Front: 18x10.5 CCW Classic with titanium fasteners, used 285/30/18 Kumho V710 Mounted
-Rear: 18x11 CCW Classic with titanium fasteners, used 285/30/18 Kumho V710 Mounted
-these things are absolutely fabulous condition, no rash anywhere.

Interior:
-Sparco Evo2 seats, VAC floor mounts with sliders, passenger side needs a set of sparco side mounts
-Sparco 6-pt harnesses
-Momo Trek steering wheel
-A/C removed (heater core still in), radio and speakers removed, airbags removed, and most corresponding wiring removed.

Exterior:
-Stock hood has been professionally flared.
-bumper and front 1/4 panel have been cut for tire clearance
-rear fenders have been rolled for tire clearance

As you can see there is over $10k worth of parts alone. The car really needs to move fast. I am listing it at $12,000 OBO.

I also have a TC Kline Carbon Fiber hood, and a new Estoril blue hardtop (that has less than 20 miles on it) that I will make available to the car buyer much, much cheaper than I would to sell individually. I also have many more parts, gauges, etc. which I will negotiate in to get this car gone.


I wouldn't normally repost someone else's ad but this just really looks like a perfect candidate for a kickass LS1 swap. I'm a sucker for Estoril Blue BMWs, and M Coupes and Roadsters (if it was an M Coupe in similar condition I'd be calling my banker!). Its already got huge-by-huge CCW wheels and race tires, big brakes, Sparco seats, the boxed/dual ear mounted rear diff, and some other upgraded suspension bits. No motor (and you could sell the trans). Yesss.....

Don't contact ME, I don't know any more about it than I read at the original ad, I was just in love with this thing and thought it would "fit" with someone on this sub-forum. Here's some more pictures I re-hosted and cropped...







E36 and Z3 engine bays are the same, and other than a shifter hole difference most E36 LS1 swap kits should fit...

That car needs this treatment...



If we were to get this Z3 M Coupe we would have to sell the Alpha car. Hate to do that, with all of the history it holds.

There's already a few people that have called ME to ask about that car for sale, so if someone HERE is interested they better act quickly.

Hey Terry, I say you should go ahead and get it. Then test the 2 (E36 coupe/M Roadster) to see which setup is better on the track
