This 1997 BMW 840Ci spent time in Texas, New Jersey, and New York before being relocated to Florida where it was acquired by the seller in April 2018. The car is finished in red over parchment leather and powered by a 4.4-liter V8 paired with a five-speed automatic transmission. Equipment includes pop-up headlights, a sunroof, Style 9 wheels, a rear spoiler, power-adjustable and heated front seats, cruise control, automatic climate control, an onboard computer, and a BMW Business CD player. This E31 indicates just over 67k miles and is offered at no reserve with manufacturer’s literature, spare wheels, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Florida title in the seller’s name.
The car is finished in Hellrot (314) and features pop-up headlights, fog lamps, a sunroof, a spoiler affixed to the trunk, and quad exhaust outlets. A rust bubble is present on the lower left portion of the windshield surround, the clearcoat is said to be failing on the mirror caps and pillars, and the seller notes that the front bumper cover has been repainted. The left headlight assembly requires manual assistance to be raised.
The 16″ Style 9 wheels are mounted with 225/50 Kumho Ecsta P831 tires. Bilstein rear shocks have been installed, and the brake booster was replaced in September 2020. Spare wheels accompany the car.
The cabin features seating trimmed in Parchment Nappa leather (M5PH) with a two-tone dash and door panels. Amenities include power-adjustable and heated front seats with position memory for the driver, automatic climate control, cruise control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, an onboard computer, and a BMW Business CD player. Wear is noted on the driver’s seat, a tear and discoloration is visible on the passenger seat, the trim pieces on the pillars are loose, and the climate control panel has been pushed into the dash.
Instrumentation consists of a 190-mph speedometer and a tachometer. The digital odometer indicates just over 67k miles, of which approximately 2k have been added by the seller. The backlighting on the odometer display is inoperable.
The 4.4 M62 V8 was factory-rated at 282 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. An aftermarket strut tower brace has been fitted, and the air conditioning system received a refrigerant recharge in September 2020. The paint on the valve covers is chipped.
Power is sent to the rear wheels through a five-speed automatic transmission. Additional photos of the underbody are included in the gallery.
Manufacturer’s literature, a factory cassette deck, and spare wheels are included in the sale.
The September 2020 Carfax report shows no accidents or other damage and lists history in Tennessee, Texas, New Jersey, New York, and Florida. Walk-around and driving videos are provided below.
