The M Coupe’s Titanium Silver paintwork presents to an excellent standard all over. The provocative styling is unspoiled by any significant blemishes or marks, a real testament to the car’s careful ownership from new. There are very few stone chips to the front end, with none of the usual road rash to those voluptuous rear hips. All lights remain clear and moisture-free and the chrome trim is still bright; the current owner has even had the rear silencers removed and professionally polished for an impeccable finish.
The cabin space retains a very fresh appearance and has more in common with a car having driven half the mileage. The all black Nappa leather upholstery has worn extremely well showing few signs of wear or age, even to the driver’s bolsters. On closer inspection there is no marking to any of the switchgear or delicate centre console trim. Commonly worn details such as the steering wheel and gear knob still present beautifully. In the footwells you’ll find original velour overmats, and in the boot the retractable load cover is retained.
ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION
The desirable S54 engine is really what makes this car so special. The 3.2-litre naturally aspirated straight-six found its way into just 165 right-hand drive M Coupes, making this example a rare beast indeed. The S54’s raspy exhaust note is intoxicating at high revs and the slick manual gearbox is the perfect partner.
This example has clearly been cherished all its life. The car boasts an all-BMW main dealer service history, the most recent service being an Inspection I at 67k miles by Vines BMW in Guildford. At this time the car was also given a clean bill of health with all items on the Visual Health Check marked green.
WHEELS, TYRES AND BRAKES
The 17-inch dished alloys present immaculately in their Chrome Shadow paint with no curb marking to be found. They are wrapped in a matching set of Continental ContiSport tyres with plenty of tread remaining. In April 2015 the car was treated to new Bilstein shocks with H & R springs. The brake discs and pads were replaced all round at 67k miles at a cost of £880.
The M Coupe was registered to its first keeper in November 2001; it has had just 3 subsequent keepers. It was originally sold through Castle Motors York who also carried out the running-in check and first main service. All subsequent stamps in the service book are from BMW main dealers, the last being Vines for an Inspection I at 67k miles. The paperwork boasts a raft of main dealer and specialist invoices plus every MOT certificate since 2006. Along with the original handbooks and leather pouch you’ll also find documentation from when the car was sold through Hexagon at three years old. The service booklet is stamped at the following mileages: 1k, 8k, 21k, 25k, 29k, 41k, 57k, 62k, and most recently at 67k miles.
