Here is some more information about the 8 Series Production of the E31 started in 1990 in Europe and exports to the US started in 1991. Initial production was V12-engined 850i coupes only. with either a 6-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic. for 1992. the 8-series only saw minor updates. A shift-interlock was added to the 4-speed automatic transmission. and somewhere between late 1991 cars and early 1992 cars. BMW adapted their 2-mode Electronic Damping Control system to the 8 series. with "Sport" and "Comfort" modes. Also. in response to dipping sales in response to the depressed market (Gulf War conflict. etc. ). BMW produced 18 prototype base-model 8-series cars. called 830Ci's. which had the 3. 0L 218bhp M60B30 V8 from the 530i and 730i. This powertrain was deemed inappropriate for a car of the 8's stature. and all 18 830Ci's were subsequently destroyed. 1993 saw the introduction of the lighter. cheaper V8-powered 840Ci model to the European market. although the 840Ci didn't arrive on US shores until model year 1994. This 282bhp V8 gave better fuel mileage and comparable performance to the heavier V12-powered cars. It was available in Europe with either a 5-speed automatic or 6-speed manual. but only the 5-speed automatic was offered in the US Market. Figures. 1994 ushered in the fantastic 850CSi coupe. built by the M Division. It sported a heavily revised version of the newer M73 V12. now up to 5. 6L and producing 396bhp and 410lb-ft (550nM) of torque. Mated only to a six-speed manual. this special 8-series ditched the fancy electronic dampers for stiffer suspension. bigger roll bars. larger brakes. reworked aerodynamics. 17" wheels and tires. a shorter final drive ratio. a limited slip differential. and in Europe. even more goodies like an auxiliary engine oil cooler and final drive oil cooler. active rear-wheel steering. and an exclusive 2-tone interior. The regular 8-series also received upgrades in 1994. like a 250 watt stereo. burl-walnut interior trim. and a remote control alarm. Over it's 10-year production run (8-series were made between 1989 and 1999). a total of 30. 21 cars were built. The large majority of 8-series production was 850i/Ci's. with a total of 22. 00 built. Next most common were the 840Ci's. with 7803 built. The 850Ci's were quite rare. with only 1. 10 made over it's lifespan. None of the 18 830Ci's that were built remain today.
