Here is your chance to own a truly stunning example of one of only 1,815 BMW Z4 M Coupe’s brought to the US between 2006 and 2007. The model was largely unchanged throughout its short history, but of note the 2007 model year received the most important update to the line, an Aux Stereo Input (Not a huge deal, but makes listening to your own music MUCH easier). The only difference between 2007 and 2008 was the addition of a single exterior color. For a full history and breakdown of all the interesting nuances of this unique car visit the ///M Registry page on the Z4 M Coupe.
The Z4 M Coupe (and Roadster) receive the E46 M3’s stunning S54 motor, producing 330 hp and 262 lb/ft of torque. They also share a front suspension with the E46 M3, you will see markings on the camber plates in the pictures denoting this as well. This car has a Coilover Suspension Kit installed only 7,500 miles ago including adjustable ride-height springs, adjustable damper struts/shocks, camber plates, and adjustable sway bar end links, all manufactured by Status Gruppe (A high-end San Diego-based sports car parts manufacturer and tuning shop). The other aftermarket upgrade done at the same time (at ~35,000 miles) is a beautiful pair of BBS CH-R wheels in black with polished silver protection ring in 19″x8.5″ and 19″x10.5″, which cost in excess of $2500 even when on sale through TireRack!

This car is in excellent condition, with Zero Curb Rash, an almost flawless exterior and interior. This car has a Clean Carfax, with 3 previous owners, and has always been a San Diego California car its entire life, so no ultra-hot weather issues, or cold-weather issues to worry about it. In addition its only traveled 42,700 miles since new, which would put it at about 4,500 miles per year in its 9.5 years of life.
We at Bright Motorcars pride ourselves on only selling truly exceptional condition cars, and this car is no exception. Not only does it have low miles, but it really has an overall condition that show this car has been well cared for its entire life. This is blistering e46 M3 performance in a car that weighs less (185 pounds less), has a much shorter wheelbase, and is touting as the best handling BMW ///M car up until the recent M2. The addition of the Status Gruppe Adjustable Coil-over suspension has given the car even more nimble handling characteristics. Its now incredibly flat through corners, and has beautifully sharp turn in when executing cornering maneuvers. The addition of the Front Camber Plates (also from Status Gruppe) allows the owner/driver to dial in the right amount of camber for their specific need, be it freeway driving, canyong running, or track day duty.
We like to make sure any car we sell is ready to go across the nation and back so we swapped fresh oil in (BMW spec Lubri-Moly 10w60 Synthetic) and replaced the front Motorsport Brake Rotors and brake pads.
The Condition of brakes and tires is as follows;
* Front Brake Pads = 100%
* Front Motorsport Rotors = 100%
* Rear Brake Pads = 35% (6.2mm)
* Rear Motorsport Rotors = 50% (19.2mm)
* Tires Hankook V12 EVO2
* Front 245/35R19 = 80% (8/32″)
* Rear 275/30R19 = 70% (7/32)
The original suspension with 35,000 miles logged on it (Struts/Springs) will be included with the sale of the car, and we also have an RPI aftermarket exhaust available for an additional $500 (that includes installation).
We are really excited to have this car, this in 100% in-line with our mission of only selling exceptional cars specifically targeted to the driving enthusiast. The final iteration of the e46 M3’s S54 motor, yes please, the final iteration of the Z based Coupe, and in ///M trim, yes please! Our owner’s first car he ever drove on a race track was the original 1999 Z3 M Coupe and thus we have a place near and dear to our heart for these cars. Of course, we can’t predict what will happen with the value of these cars, but the original M Coupe’s just keep rising in value regardless of the miles, so we are predicting and hoping that the same continues to happen for these (even rarer) cars!
