Estoril Blue (Estoril Blau Metallic 335) is exclusive to BMW Motorsport cars and the Z3 M Coupe is one of the more dramatic shapes to take this iconic paint colour. The curvaceous body is highlighted beautifully and full of muscular intent. The paintwork remains in extremely good order with areas such as the wing mirrors and flared arches presenting in excellent condition.

All of the black window surrounds and chrome details are in fantastic condition and retain a clean, deep texture. A stunning example that presents as one of the best.

An exciting exterior needs an exciting interior to match and the colour scheme of the M Coupe does not disappoint. Finished in Two Tone Estoril Blue and Black Nappa upholstery, this internal shade is much deeper than the exterior. The two-tone leather sports seats are in excellent condition and remain free from any sagging or damage, still feeling firm and supportive.

The smart black and blue two-tone combination partners the paintwork and is carried through to the door cards and centre console, all of which are in fine order with no scuffs or marks. The chrome additions to dials, gear gaiter, dash rings and light pull switch provide a stylish lift to a beautifully finished cabin with all switch gear feeling solid to operate and showing minimal wear.

The carpets are perfectly clean throughout, protected in the foot-wells with a set of black over-mats showing no signs of wear. All of the tools and spare wheel are still present, situated under the boot carpet which remains spotlessly clean.

The S54B32 is full of vim and excitement in the Z3 M Coupe. With a fabulous engine note this example feels very potent and pulls through its gears with great vigour.

The ZF Type C 5-speed manual gearbox feels tight and precise, shifting through the gate with ease and a perfect compliment to the long ratio 5 speed ‘box and the handling characteristics of this potent sports GT. The engine in this car presents very well with some intricate details on show, rather than hidden under a plastic shroud as most modern engines are.

This M Coupe sits on the correctly finished 17″ Starfish wheels with the deep rear dish on the rear providing that typically broad, aggressive stance. Recently installed Premium Avon ZV7 provide the definitive contact patch to rear wheels with excellent tread on the front matching set.

The brakes feel strong and confident bringing the car to a standstill quickly and smoothly.

This Z3 M Coupe was taken in as a part exchange against a BMW M2. It has a production date of March 2001 and coded L812A, National version Great Britain. This iconic Motorsport BMW has had just 4 former keepers and was first registered 01/06/2001. The current custodian having owned the car since 06/08/2004.

Once it was in our hands, we commissioned a very comprehensive renovation to bring the car up to show standards, headed up by our service tech, a former BMW Master Technician with 30 years plus of main dealer experience.

Mechanical work included a complete removal of the engine to address an oil leak, while out the engine was cleaned, all gaskets and seals were replaced along with the water pump and the clutch changed. It got a complete service with spark plugs, engine oil, coolant and brake fluid change along with the relevant filters.

Now, on the button and ready to enjoy, this rare S54 M Coupe sits in superb 1st class condition.
