This Coupe was submitted by Christophe of Geneva, Switzerland. He purchased the Coupe from the first owner, who put 100k km on it. Christophe has added an additional 3k km since he took owner ship. Previous to this, he owned 3.0 Roadster, and before that a 2.2 Roadster. The well cared for Coupe appears to be all stock, aside from sway bars and and a short shift kit.

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.

Dorkfest 2012 was held at the BMW Vehicle Distribution Center in Port Hueneme, CA on Saturday August 25th. Attendees started arriving at the VDC about 8am, and the tours commenced about 9:30. The time in between went by incredibly quickly, mostly comprised of meeting and chatting with fellow Coupe enthusiasts along with checking out the 57 different Coupes present. Most every color of Coupe was present, with the exception of Individual colors, and a handful of others.

While vacationing in Lincoln Beach, Oregon with my family, I spotted this Z3 Coupe (Oregon plate: ZRX 985) stopped at a light as was passed on the US-101. I had been hoping to see a Coupe while we were up here, and was pleasantly surprised yesterday as we were headed home. I was able to quickly snap a few photos as we passed. It appears to be an all stock 2001 or 2002 Z3 Coupe with Oxford Green paint, and what looks like Walnut leather. A great combo, I might add! This is the second Coupe I’ve seen in the 8 or so years we’ve been vacationing here. Both in Newport, OR, one of the larger cities on the coast. The first was a Steel Gray over Black M Coupe.

This Z3 Coupe was posted for sale on goo-net.com in Nara, Japan with only 1,945 km (1,208 miles). This is the lowest mileage Coupe I remember ever seeing. Adding to the rareness, beyond the mileage, is Topaz Blue paint, sunroof delete, and an automatic transmission. The seller is currently accepting offers, and assuming they know what they have, I don’t imagine it will go cheaply.
