1991 BMW 850 V12 6 Speed

1991 BMW 850 6 28K miles, collector owner since new. Known by as one of the best surviving examples of an 8 this car has been nothing but a toy since new and treated as such. an example that represents the 8 properly as one of the most unique and cars ever produced.

The top of original surviving low mile BMW 8 just may prove to be collectible and as as the top examples of 60s muscle cars and in the near future. It’s certainly a far more worthy car some of the mentioned. Whatever the or opinions, few will argue the BMW 8 series is a timeless car yet to be matched in and looks by just about made since.

One thing I learned watching cars since this car was new; there are really nice in technology, you will never see the quality put into any car any time as the top high line BMW/Mercedes of the 90s had. The 750s, the 8 series for BMW and the 600s for mercedes. I think will write that in as the best it got in terms of quality, perfect body work and more.

Although technology had up, workmanship quality and certainly the of materials used in even the top today have gone since. We do not even have to about newer BMWs History will take of that for us. This car was $100K in for a reason. You cannot duplicate today for under the price of a new

I have owned countless The BMW 8 is a car that is in my top 5 cars of all times.

The BMW or E31, was produced and imported 1991-1997 in an 850 (V12) or in later an optional 840 (V8) version. The 840 is common in the latter years and was a bit money and performance, but uses the car. As with the two engine the E31 was offered in an automatic, or the scarce 6 making the V12 6 speed about as of car as you can find.

The E31 is truly an engineering set in a timeless classic body yet to be by anything BMW has built since in the and build quality arena.

The E31 850 was offered in the 850CSI version in here in the US, with a total of 200 cars ever produced. was an improvement to an already incredible car a few basic body enhancements the regular 850 and a bit more power any other 850 boasting a decent at the flywheel from roughly the V12 with 5.6 liters. The 850CSI was offered in the 6 speed, and the 850CSI is one of the most collectable BMW’s you can

Since the 850CSI was only for two years in 94-95, and my particular car is a 91, it was upgraded to most of the 850CSI within reason and integrity. I for 8 series CSI for 6 years to find a car than this one here a 120K budget. It does not in the condition of this car looking at 40 of the 200 that were here in the US and a 95 that has 19K miles, later to out the car was back 1/2 painted.

After the let down, for someone demanding this car is it for me. I am confident that the rest of my life and an unlimited I could not get a car in better condition. will be the last 8 I ever own if I it one day as everything else will be down.

The good thing is the 850 6 speed shares a good bit of the hardware as the CSI, so making the car as to a CSI is possible is not intrusive or difficult, rather expensive. The front and bumper pieces are obvious and are BMW parts. This is a simple on once you find and paint the but the parts are near impossible to anymore and are extremely expensive.

This car is of course 100% flawless paint on all metal and the CSI bumpers were painted off the car and all correct mounting hardware and parts, air deflectors, etc. The of this 91 has the rare (EDC) or dampening control option, it a sort of active suspension two switchable setting, and is another rare option.

The springs on car were upgraded to a lower and aftermarket spring that is a good improvement over all E31s CSI or not, and the front bar is a larger model in this car The rear differential was changed out to a ratio and a Limited Slip This is a BIG improvement on the 850 6 speed, the car a better acceleration and no effect on top or drivability.

It is the ratio the factory have used in the first and is recommended to all 6 speed cars. is also roughly the same as the factory 850CSI uses. The brakes were changed the ATE to the the rare and expensive Factory 4 Brembo Calipers. These are not they are a factory BMW part the BMW logo and about as rare selves as this car in this

The front projector lenses real 8K HID/Xenon lamps and on them. This is a very touch on the front of these The lenses are of course glass, not and all the headlight adjusters that are are perfect in the car.

Also, all the headlamps come on the bright lights are pulled. was a disabled feature on the 8 series in the US. The and tires are an upgrade and are later 18×8.5 and 18×9.5 wheels Michelin Pilot tires the same sizes as the new M5 BMW.

is a true looks and handling over the best wheels offered on any of these 8-Series. The wheels/tires on all models of the E31 are defiantly a point. This is a must for any E31

To make this car have power without altering the or integrity a few basic things done. First, all 3 computer were changed. The V12 cars use two DME on one EML computer. The DMEs each run one of the twin 6 cylinder engine.

The EML is the throttles, and other aspects and is of linking the DMEs together. The DME are the popular Conforti chips, the car about 30HP over its rating. The EML, removed the top limiter and raises the rev limiter. is a separate chip from company and is roughly the same used on an Alpina B12.


The of the 3 allow the car to achieve a near speed and give it a bit more The last upgrade is the exhaust. exhaust transforms this over attention getting to a musical tune not played by any car on the road. The exhaust was custom on a chassis dyne by one of Dallas’

Although it took extensive and only gives the car 16 actual HP, the and sound are so impressive that you want to listen to it all day. If you did not see the you will look when you is as there is no other sound it. If you own an E31, I highly recommend a like this as it literally the car!

By the way, the factory is plastic bagged and is still the car. With all of the performance this particular 850 has 286HP to the That is roughly about 345 HP at the still 35HP short of the 850CSI, but it is as close as you can get without the engine, and that is not an option on particular car in its condition and rarity.

The side to all E31’s are that are a very heavy machine, right about 4000LBS. To things in perspective. A late 3 series is now tipping 4000 Cars get heavier each Weight is good for drivability and as the car is simply one of the best driving ever built, but even the performance enhancements, the car does not live up to its absolutely near of looks in the performance arena.

They really need to be a 500HP car to be the best car in the world, but for it does ok, offering very acceleration, great top end reliability and and is simply fun to drive. If you want an car that is built extremely is very rare and collectable and has a appreciating future, the BMW 850 does all of
