1991 BMW 850i. Enthusiast Owned! Exterior Color is AlpinWeiss 2 (218). the Upholstery is Leder Nappa/Silbergrau Hell Mit Schwarz (0354/M5SD) The cars production date was Thursday December 6th 1990. I am the second owner of the car. According to 8Coupe. com (8 series registry) This particular car is a fairly rare color combination. indication worldwide only 2 vehicles in the same color combination and with the same options. The cars color combination is striking and very beautiful! Car Fax will show 3 owners. the original owner transferred title of the car from business to personal ownership. Car was originally a California car. I had it transported to WI in 2009. I have a fairly complete folder of documentation on the car dating back to the mid 90's. Since I have owned the car it has never been driven in rain or snow. and has only been driven a little over 3. 00 miles in almost 6 years. The car won its class at a local cars and coffee event and it looks very good. more about that below. I have had the car professionally detailed by CH Detailing including regular washing several times a year. The car sits in my heated shop and has been very well cared for. I am a perfectionist and will describe the condition of the car to the best of my ability. When I have pointed out flaws to other car guys they look at me as if I am nuts :-) The car gets head turns and attention whenever I have it out. It received more attention than my 911 Turbo. Which brings me to the reason for parting with it. A few years ago I needed to sell my 911 Turbo as I was moving and only had room for one toy. I debated for a long time which car to let go but ultimately decided the Turbo needed a new home. As time has passed I miss driving the Turbo and have decided it is time to look for another. While I have room to store both cars in my heated shop. I will not have the room long term so I have decided after a couple of years of changing my mind numerous times to sell my 8. The Good: The car looks fantastic! Paint is shinny. free of scratches dings or dents. The car is "unmolested" and retains the factory stereo and car phone. The wheels and tires shown in the pictures were purchased by me when I acquired the car. The M-Parallels are free of any road rash or dings. The tires have just over 3. 00 miles on them. Included with the sale are the OEM BBS wheels as well as newer Pirelli tires. I replaced both batteries with new Interstate batteries. they are maintained with a C-Tec battery tender which is also included with the sale. I purchased a car cover for the car which is also included with the sale. I replaced the floor matts with new 8 series stock matts. The original floor mats are also included. a framed reproduction window sticker is also included as is original BMW sales brochures. and complete owners manuals. The interior is very good condition. no rips or tears in the upholstery. It has never been smoked in and the carpets are exceptional! I had the "Wookee" performance chips installed for additional horse power. the original chips are included with the car. I purchased a VIN number match key chain which was a custom offer to members of the 8 series Bimmerforum. it will be included with the car. The car is current on maintenance. The car has been a joy to own and has been very reasonable to maintain. The Bad:Like I mentioned above I am very particular so some of these items are an issue to me. others will not find them to be an issue. The fabric on the rear deck under the rear glass is loose in spots as is the headliner. I noticed the passenger seat is not moving up and down but is working fine fore and aft. The spring loaded door is not staying closed. I fixed it once years ago and if given the time will make the simple repair. The AC blows cold but the fan is at times a bit weak. The front lower chin spoiler was slightly damaged when removed from the transport truck when I had I shipped from California. I had planned to have the entire front lower spoiler replaced but never got around to it. The chrome trim ring on the front grill kidney is not siting tight against the body work. it is hardly noticeable and had planned to have that taken care of when I did the lower spoiler. I understand it is a fairly easy fix to get the chrome trim to snap back into place but I have not attempted the repair. The passenger door was repainted as was the passenger front fender. the older gentleman I purchased it from open his other car door into it and scraped it in a few spots. Last year while in for service the drivers door was slightly damaged and need to be repainted. These cars are priced all over the place. Some higher mileage cars are very affordable but often bring with them old car issues. Nice examples are starting to climb up a bit. perhaps someday they will attain a value to what the car is truly worth. This is a GT car. they drive very nice but it is not a sports car by the classical definition. I have been out on fun drives with friends and the car s very smooth and settled at what most would call too fast of speeds. I have no idea what the car is worth but tried to find a price that was a fair starting point. If you are interested lets talk. I don't need to sell the car so low ball offers will not be considered. For what its worth car friends of mine have told me I am nuts for selling it and have said you wont find too many nicer 8 around. Like I said I am a perfectionist and in my mind this 8 is an "8" others consider it a 10. Perhaps you are pickier than me and will think its a 7. If you are looking for an 8 series BMW this is one that should be considered. Whatever the case may be it does show well and turn heads. Please contact me with questions.
