As we know the RHD S54 version of the Z3m roadster is one of the rarest BMW's ever made (73 cars)

Attempts have been made to collate data on all 73 cars over the years and some information has even been provided by BMW UK Customer Services (which did not reconcile fully with known data and so presumably had some human error)

However, I've now been able to extract all of the data directly from BMW's own online webETK and so this should be the definative list of all 73 cars showing the full factory specification including options by VIN.

My summary and individual printout by VIN can be downloaded from here:

RHD S54 Z3m BMW webETK Database Vehicle Specifications Summary & Detail by VIN - Jonttt May 2012

Some interesting facts:

- x6 development car with x2 of these specced for Australia (the first 6 cars produced LB64000 to LB64005 between 25/04/2000 and 15/11/2000). The first 2 cars did not have Dynamic Stability Control fitted.

- x4 press cars (the first 3 cars produced after the development cars (LB64006 to LB64008) and a later 2002 car (LB64108)

- x3 Cars where not specced for Great Britain - 2 developement cars LB64000 and LB64002 (both Australia spec) and a later car LB64103 (unknown spec). All had klm speedos.

So this raises the real probability that x3 of the cars where never delivered to the UK. This means that potentially only x70 cars where ever sold in the UK

- The next to last car produced has an unknown code "S995A - Dummy SALAPA". This may be a car reserved by BMW and not sold to the public ?

- It has been confirmed that at least one of the development cars was offered for sale by a BMW dealer to the public.
