1999 BMW Z3 Coupe 5-Speed w/73728 miles (Artic Silver Exterior and Black Leather Interior)

One of the sweetest rides you will ever have the opportunity of owning. This car gets more looks than you can imagine and is the constant center of attention anywhere you go.

It has a 2.8l engine, inline 6. Most people in search of this car know the details of what it has, so I will spare you the time. If you are not familiar with the specs on it, check it out on the BMW site or an online resource of your choosing. Majority of the 73,728 miles have been a daily freeway commute from the East Bay to the Peninsula.

Standard Options:

  • 5-Speed manual transmission.
  • 17" radial alloy wheels.
  • Heated driver and passenger seats, door locks and side mirrors.
  • One touch open/close driver and passenger windows.
  • Power glass moonroof.
  • In-dash Premium Business CD.
  • BMW luggage net.
  • Chrome interior accents

I've made the following additions to the car over the past five years:

  • Clear side marker lights.
  • Chrome license plate frame, front and rear.
  • 2002 M Coupe clear, chromed ringed front lights.
  • BMW factor 6-disc CD changer in back (installed at 14,497 miles).
  • K&N air filter (installed at 39,172 miles) (I will include the original part if desired).
  • BMW Profile 2000 roof rails + one BMW bike rack (not shown on car, but shown separately).
  • Bilstein shocks and Eibach pro springs (I will include the original parts if desired).
  • Chrome BMW stick shift + e-brake handle (I will include the original parts if desired).
  • BMW factor alarm + 2 key fobs (installed at 14,497 miles).
  • BMW day-time running light relay (I will include the original relay if desired).
  • BMW Z8 chrome washers (I will include the original washers if desired).
  • BMW 3 series chrome/rubber peddles + dead peddle.
  • Hamman black-out kidney gills.
  • Rear spoiler professionally painted to match Artic Silver exterior.
  • Magnaflow Muffler #14815 (installed at 37,216 miles).
  • Bridgestone RE750 235/40R17 Front and 255/40R17 Rears (installed at 63,832 miles).
  • BMW battery replaced at 71,992 miles.
  • Extra un-opened 1 QT BMW High Performance Synthetic Oil (5W-30) Qty 2.
  • Driver side door grip-handle (inside above the drivers door).

The following BMW services have been completed:

  • Oil Change - 8,971 miles
  • Inspection 1 (incl. oil change) - 22,828 miles
  • Oil Change - 37,461 miles
  • Inspection 2 (incl. oil change) - 51,388 miles
  • Oil Change - 63,749 miles (also replaced all fan belts, and performed a brake fluid flush)
  • Inspection 1 (incl. oil change) - 71,992 miles (also replaced battery)

Interesting Vehicle Statistics:

  • I have filled 3,392.551 gallons of 91 octane.
  • The average price of gas I have filled is $2.0301 for a total of $6,916.94
  • I have averaged 226.66 miles per tank.
  • Build Date: 07-OCT-1998
  • Build Number: 42577
  • Order Number: 6266453
  • Motor Type: M52
  • Interior Color: Black Leather (Q8SW)
  • Exterior Color: Artic Silver (0309)

The interior on this car is nothing less than stunning. The sound system is the Harmon Kardon premium sound (in-dash single CD), just as all of them had with 9 speakers I believe. The BMW CD changer is a great addition as it adds countless hours of music.

The exterior of this car is as one could expect for a 1999 car. It has a few really minor knicks and a couple minor scratches. There was a small fender bender back in earlier 2003 which resulted in a new hood painted with BMW Artic Silver paint, new front lights, and new front fascia. There was no damage to the frame or the engine.

Asking: $17,700 or Best Offer.

Well, for every vehicle, I've kept a spreadsheet with infromation from each fill-up I've done. I know it's going over-board, but it gives me something to look at after years of owning a car. For example, the cheaest price for 91 Octane I've filled up (only Chevron/76 btw) was 1.3390 back in February of 1999.

Bike Rack

I have a Z3 Coupe and would like to put a rack on it for a bike and kiteboards. Where did you get your rack? Are the 'runners' on the roof where your rack screws in? Has there ever been an issue with the weight you carry on the roof and possibly stressing the sunroof glass? Nice ride by the way. I too have the same gas logs.

Thanks in advance for your time.

Hope your day is going well.
