This Z3 Coupe was posted on craigslist.org in White Salmon, WA with 70k miles for $13,000. The Coupe appears to be all stock with the exception of front and rear mud guards, and a front plate mount. The seller also mentions including an OE roof rack and a basket. I’m curious what the basket is, as I haven’t seen an OE basket before. Alpine White over Walnut is one of my favorite non-M color combos, so I was pretty excited to see this listed. The new buyer will be lucky to own this!
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.
What an amazing event and weekend! I’m working on editing and posting the photos I took, and should have it all up in the next few days. We ended up with 57 Coupes in attendance, which was an amazing sight. I snapped the photo above after the tour had started of the VDC, and a few Coupes had already left (LAME!). Lots more to come. Stay tuned…
