Dream came true! Congratulations to etherwiggles for becoming the new owner!

Here it is folks…. DreamCarXchange is thrilled present this two-owner, 45k mile 2002 BMW M Coupe, finished in the highly sought-after Laguna Seca Blue!  This final year M Coupe S54 is equipped with a 5-speed manual transmission and is finished Grey/Black Napa Leather interior color combination.  BMW only produced 41 Laguna Seca Blue M Coupes, ever!  It was purchased from Crevier BMW in Santa Ana, CA in May 2002 by the original owner and then purchased by the most recent owner in June 2007 when that owner lived in Oregon.  In June 2017 the owner moved to New Jersey where the car resides today.  It currently shows 45,618 miles.  The only modification is a Dinan intake and early generation iPod connections and interior cupholders, which are all reversible if desired.  The selling dealer just completed a full maintenance in addition to installing new tires.  It is being sold with the original window sticker, maintenance documents and the original intake. It has a clean CARFAX and a clean New Jersey title.

The M Coupe was introduced by BMW to the United States in 1999.  For model years 2001 and 2002 it was upgraded from the S52 engine to the S54 engine which increased power from 240 hp to 315 hp.  The S54 engine is a 3.2 liter inline six-cylinder that was rated by BMW at 315 hp @ 7400 rpm and 251 lb-ft of torque @ 4900 rpm when new. The only modification to it is a Dinan intake.  Power is sent to the rear wheels via a 5-speed manual transmission and limited slip differential.

Below are YouTube links to short driving and engine idle/revving videos:

This S54 Coupe comes with the Grey/Black Nappa Leather and features the optional power sunroof.  Standard features include heated adjustable M design sport seats and a Harman Kardon audio system.  The only interior modifications are connectors for early generation iPhone/iPod and cupholders in the center console, which are removeable if desired.

The car comes with the original window sticker, showing a MSRP of $45,935.

The selling dealer states the car to be in excellent cosmetic condition, with only minor imperfections such as a delaminating rearview mirror, broken clock stalk (though it functions properly) and some stone chips/scratches as pointed out in photos in the picture gallery.

This example has been maintained throughout its life as indicated by the CARFAX and the maintenance records that go back to the original owner.  The selling dealer just completed a service that included:

– Oil & Filter change

– Differential fluid change

– Brake fluid flush and change

– Coolant flush and change

– A/C service

– Replaced driver inner tie rod and alignment

– Replaced all spark plugs

– Refinished all wheels and installed four new tires

The freshly refinished wheels were mounted with new Continental ExtremeContact Sport tires sized 225/45/17 front and 245/40/17 rear with manufacturer dates codes of 1621 and 5021 respectively.

The selling dealer states it accelerates, shifts, brakes and rides as it should.  You can download the clean CARFAX from the Key Specifications table above and make sure you check out the 120+ additional pictures, including those of the undercarriage and paint meter readings in the “Pictures” tab above.

Here’s your opportunity to get a rare final year LSB S54 M Coupe, so bid often to make it yours!

The seal has broken in the rear view mirror and the fluid will leak onto the dash if not repaired or replaced soon. The same thing happened to my previous S54 M Coupe, common problem to all

Wow, here it is folks... the highly sought after S54 M Coupe in Laguna Sega Blue! This is a two owner car with the most recent owner being the custodian of it since 2007. Full maintenance just completed and we have most/all maintenance history for it. It is stunning in person and an incredible drive.

Got something to discuss?

There should be a Vin tag on the rear of the car where the license plate goes. Can you please remove the plate and take a picture of the Vin tag ? Thank you

I took the picture of the VIN tag, it should be posted shortly.

Can you post a clearer photo of the rear view mirror? Has it leaked onto the dash plastic below?

I will do so tomorrow, just looks like has delaminated. No evidence of anything leaking onto the dash. Thanks and sorry for the delay in answering all your questions!

In picture 42, the radio is shown to need the unlock code. Has this been addressed?

powertechselect

Thanks for the reminder. I believe we have it in the books/literature, but I need to verify.

We have input the radio code and the radio is now functioning!

I had a S54 M Coupe for many years. Looking for another. Which door panel has the paint work, hard to tell from the photo, Drivers door or passenger door?

Anything else aftermarket beside Dinan intake. Is exhaust stock?

thank you

Glenn

It’s the drivers door, just aft of the door handle. I asked most recent owner about it and they were unaware, so much have been from the original owner. No other aftermarket other than the cup holders and old iPhone cables. The exhaust is stock. Let me know if you have any other questions, thanks!

Can you post some photos of the the differential ear mount bracket and the mount bracket to floorpan? These are common failure areas on these cars.

I will try to get it on a lift again ahead of the auction close for the pictures you are requesting, I might be able to get them while it is on the floor.

powertechselect
08-12-2021

I was able to use a jack to get underneath the car and take a handful of additional photos of the rear undercarriage. I’m not as familiar to where these items you noted are exactly located on these cars, so hopefully you can see from the photos. They will be added shortly.

Nine additional pictures of the rear undercarriage have been added to the picture gallery.

The Carfax shows 3 owners but the auction description claims 2. Can you clarify?

powertechselect
08-11-2021

Owner 2 and 3 on the CARFAX is the same person, they moved from Oregon to NJ.

Do you know if the Inspection II (Valve Adjustment) has been performed?

powertechselect
08-11-2021

The service work we had commissioned prior to the sale included most everything from Inspection II, however a valve adjustment was not completed at that time.

Can you upload photos of the other service records that are displayed in photo 142?

It looks like the driver’s door has been repainted from the paint thickness reading. Can you confirm? Is the VIN tag on that door still visible?

powertechselect
08-11-2021

It appears that the driver’s door has had some paint work aft of the door handle. The VIN sticker can be seen in picture 60.
