The E36/7 M Roadster (also called the Z3 M) is the high performance version of the BMW Z3 and there were significant differences between the two variants. The body of the Z3 M Roadster had a few differences compared to the standard Z3 models. These included front and rear bumpers, gills, boot and mirrors. The Z3 M was designed by Joji Nagashima. Under the skin many of the components were upgraded with the rear suspension being derived from the E30 M3 and the front suspension and brake system being shared with the E36 M3 EVOE36. Based on the E36 platform, the Z3 Roadster was considered the E36/7 platform. Curb weight is 1,399 kg (3,084.3 lb). The M Roadster has a wider track under the flared wheel arches as well as wider wheels and tires to try to tame the increased power of 315 hp. The standard tIre sizes for the M Roadster is 225/45R17 at the front and 245/40R17 at the back. The low offset of the rear wheels allows plenty of flexibility to increase the rear tire width. A dual exhaust system fed each set of three cylinders to two dual tailpipes. The Z3 M roadster was the first BMW automobile to feature this quad exhaust design which has since become a BMW M division signature. The interior had a different look to the standard Z3, the M-sport steering wheel available only on the Z3 M-sport was standard on the M Roadster. The car also has different instrumentation such as an oil temperature gauge. Finally, the car was available in M-specific colors which were not available for the regular Z3, at least in the early production years. Early cars featured ABS as standard. ASC traction and stability control also became standard equipment on US-market cars in 1999 and in 2001 M roadsters worldwide were upgraded to BMW's DSC traction control system. The total productions numbers for the 1998 to 2002 years were only 15,000 both European and US.…..This is a stunning example of a 2000 M Roadster, collector owned with only 97,500 miles, tons of Dinan upgrades. It has a clear California title and a clean car fax. This little rocket ship is finished in its original Imola Red with two-tone Red and Black leather interior. It is equipped with all standard power options including almost new tries, power top, up graded sound and much more. This car is wicked fast it runs and drives great, dependable, safe and way TOO much fun. #92857 Now on display at the home of “over the top cars”CHECKERED FLAG CLASSICS 7743 MONTEREY ST GILROY, 408-847-8788 or 888-625-2774, sold as-is, California buyers are responsible for sales tax and license fees.
