134,200 miles
Exterior color: Arctic Silver Metallic

Location: Owego, NY – registered & licensed in NY
Price: will consider offers over $20K - not interested in trades

Straight body, good condition for age & mileage, needs some TLC, 3 accidents (only 2 show in CarFax report) - was in southern California until late-2022 when it was trailered to NY - it spent the winter in the garage and has never been driven in snow or on salted roads

One of the known weaknesses of the M Coupe is the subframe - over time the subframe cracks and needs to be repaired - reinforcing the subframe costs $2500 to $3000 - the subframe on this vehicle has been repaired and reinforced

I made a mistake when I replaced the rear shocks last year – instead of replacing the worn-out Bilsteins I let the shop install OEM shocks – after driving with Bilsteins for 10+ years the OEM shocks feel very soft and mushy – this car needs high-performance shocks if you want to drive it aggressively

I had the car listed in July 2023 for $17,500 – at the time I was unaware of the price history provided at MCoupeBuyersGuide (.com) – to find this guide Google “mcoupe buyers guide price vs mileage” – the first search result will take you to a page with two pricing charts – the first chart shows asking prices vs mileage and the second chart is sales price vs mileage

Based on the sales price vs mileage chart this car is worth $22-24,000 – the subframe reinforcement and recent maintenance would push it towards the higher end of this range – I’m going to knock $2,000 off to cover shifter work and curb rash on the wheels – that puts the expected sales price range at $20-22,000

While you are at MCoupeBuyersGuide (.com) you can shop for other M Coupes that are currently for sale and look at ones that have recently sold

TLC needed

> Center console: panel is cracked just above A/C switch (see image) (a new panel is included with sale – the panel is black, BMW no longer sells the blue panel)
