    She's a 1998 S S50 with 80k on the clock and full service history.
    Huge folder of receipts and invoices billing around £10,000 pounds.
    New upgraded Vanos from Mr vanos, I've also just had the solenoid seals replaced as its recommended every 2-3 years.
    Continental contact sport tyres with lots of tread.
    It's had a full fluids change while in my ownership, with diff, gearbox, coolant, brake fluid, and engine oil replaced.
    There are no oil leaks anywhere on the car.
    The boot floor was replaced/strengthened under warrantee by BMW so no boot floor issues.
    Cruise control.
    Rare Bmw aero spoiler.
    Mot - June 2015 - no advisories
    Full service History
    This M roadster has been cherished and cared for with no expense spared whatsoever..
    The Interiors like new having been re-trimmed ( New Leather ) No wear on the seats.
    Body work is superb with No dents or major scratches. The paint works been machine polished with regular wax application.
    It drives superb and like no other M roadster. With the Stage 3 Evolve package power delivery is amazing with instant throttle response and hard pulling acceleration that just gets stronger up to 7.6k rpm. its running approx 340bhp.
    Smooth gear change, and excellent clutch. With all M roadsters they need to be warmed up to temp before spirited driving. With the cams you also get a slight loapy idle, which is a characteristic of the cams, its quite satisfying when sat at the lights.
    Insurance is cheap as it can be insured on a classic policy. It's £250 a year with all mods declared for me.
    Please don't compare this to a normal, well worn M roadster thats usually for sale. I viewed a few when I was looking for one and i can honestly say condition and history is the most important factor with these cars else they can become money pits.
    This really is one of a kind M roadster in superb condition and spec.
    All the maintanance and money has been spent on this M Roadster, its ready to just be driven and enjoyed.
    It will be a very sad day when I hand over the keys, alot of good memory's driving her. It's a stunning machine.

    It's an M that needs to be driven not sat in a garage.. I got like that where I was afraid to use it at the start. Sure I don't use it in the rain and over winter but it just begs to be used in nice weather.. ;)
    The seats won't mark easily as the new leathers of very high quality and very durable.

    It will be a sad day when the M goes, someone is going to have great days (and nights!) in this car.

    Will have to make sure I've got a leash on Liam to stop him running down the road after it!!

    Good luck with the sale Liam. Such a fine example, can't believe you're really going to part with it.

    Will be sorry not to see it parked alongside mine anymore at our EAC meets, as it's such a good partner for the awesome power and speed of the 1.9i ! ;)

    Shaun, your car was the only one that Liam didn't overtake last Saturday so the awesome speed of the 1.9i is obviously faster than the 3.2M...;)
