2001 Z3 Coupe | Dakar Yellow | Dream Red

2001 Z3 Coupe | Dakar Yellow | Dream Red
This Coupe was posted on craigslist.org in Brooklyn, NY with 100k miles for $12,805. When this popped up in my email notifications, it caught my attention right away. Mustard and Ketchup, anyone? Dakar Yellow paint over Dream Red Extended Leather is a very unique combo, and one that I’ve never seen before. It’s certainly not for most people, and isn’t a combo I could see myself owning. In their own right, Dakar Yellow and Dream Red Extended Leather are appealing options for many people. The Extended Leather alone has a solid base of fans who go to great lengths to modify their Coupe with those pieces. The Chrome Line trim is a nice compliment to the Dream Red, as well. This Coupe look mostly stock, but does include some mods: navigation, two-way alarm with remote start, aftermarket head unit with Bluetooth, along with aluminum pedal covers, an aftermarket e-brake handle, and what looks like a ZHP shift knob. This may not be a desirable combo for most potential buyers, but it’s bound to be a very rare Coupe, with a good selection of choices. Likely better with a different paint color, but the Dream Red Extended Leather featuring Chrome Line trim all in addition to the 225 hp 3.0 liter M54 engine is pretty appealing on their own. Maybe a potential repaint? I think not with a $12k+ price tag, with 100k+ miles.

    I actually was able to see and test drive this yellow coupe. first of all the owner is a pure d!ck !. the car is actually in good condition, not mint as its stated on his listing. the mileage is actually 115k miles, not the 100k miles listed. It has an engine check on, owner says sensor is the factor. and it does needs new brales pads and caliper. his pictures are from when he first got it, last year… basically, his listing is somewhat an exageration to pull potential interest or buyers.car combo so rare, why is it not sold yet>???. hmmm.

      Thanks for the comment. It’s always important to have a keen eye when considering any used vehicle. Not all sellers are as forthcoming as they could be.

    Wow, so that’s what’s become of my coupe. It was a dealer car before I bought it in ’01 with 3,000 miles on it. Got it from Park Ave BMW in NJ. I see it still has the aluminum emergency brake handle I installed and yes, it was hit in the rear. I was the front car of a three car accident in stop and go traffic on I78 in NJ. The damage was all cosmetic but a bummer nonetheless. Traded it in on an Audi TT because as you can imagine the BMW didn’t do too well in snow. Even so I think I had it for 4 years. Was a blast to drive, wish I could have kept it.
