2000 bMW z3 M roadster for sale
Fast Facts:

  • The Z3 M featured the inline 6 (S52) from the E36 M3
  • The more powerful S54 engine in the 2001+ models is a very different animal from the S52 powered cars. While the horsepower difference appears substantial on paper, the cars feel very similar up until about 5,000 RPM, where the S54 will surge hard toward its whopping 7400 redline (partly thanks to an ITB setup). There was only a modest difference in peak torque between the two engines (12 ft lbs). In addition, peak torque arrived over 1000 rpm later in the S54 (4900 RPM versus 3800 RPM in the S52)
  • BMW engineer Burkhard Göschel wanted to increase the rigidity of the roadster by making it into a fixed roof Coupe. The M Coupe almost didn’t make production, had Göschel’s team not convinced the Board of Directors to give it the green light
  • Göschel convinced the Board, saying an M coupe would be cost effective. This was done by ensuring the Coupe shared the interior, doors, fenders, hood, and bumper from the roadster
Key Model Year Changes:

  • Unlike the rest of the Z3 range, the Z3M did not receive cosmetic changes during the facelift in 2000
  • Final year of the S52 engine. The following year (2001) receives the 3.2 engine from the E46 M3
  • The only significant changes to the Z3 M Roadster occur in 2001, and there are many. Most notably a 3.15 differential (replaces the 3.23 diff of the ’00 model), grey faced gauges (vs black), tire pressure monitoring, Dynamic stability control replaces Automatic Stability Control plus Traction (ASC+T), and more
