BMW's Z3M offered a modern day, quasi-retro look that proved popular with buyers in all its markets: The Coupé offered a more practical take on Z3M ownership and unlike many performance cars proved capable of high mileages. This example has been owned by the vendor for 14 years (who, incidentally, is the car's second owner) and its condition is the result of much care and expenditure during that time. This year the vendor has spent around £4,000 on the car, with all new suspension (including Bilstein shock absorbers, new springs and track rod ends) (£1,151), replacement air-conditioning compressor, top mounts and lower pads (£795), new power steering cooler (£325) and even an engine bay clean (£110). A new premium battery with lifetime warranty, costing £144, has also been fitted. While it shows 167,000 miles, much of that has been carried out on motorways. While the bodywork has some stone chips on the bonnet and bumper, and there are small dents on both doors, such light demerits are testament to the car's regular usage. The black and grey interior remains in good order, and is free of rips or tears, while recently the interior has been dehumidified. Three years ago the alloy wheels were refurbished and to this day remain unmarked. Service history is comprehensive, showing main dealer servicing until 2005 and after that work was carried out by a marque specialist, which translates into 22 stamps in the book, along with many detailed invoices. There are two keys, along with the original folder, while the boot contains the original tools and first aid kit. Coming with a long MoT test the vendor says the sole reason for selling is the desire for a Porsche 911 (996) Carrera 4S.
