Sold – 1994 BMW 850CSi – 18k Miles – Very Original

This 1994 BMW 850CSi is #62 of 225 examples produced for the US market and is finished in Bright Red over black leather. Power is from a 5.6-liter V12 paired with a six-speed manual transmission, and modifications include a Dinan ECU chip as well as a Racing Dynamics exhaust system. The car is said to have been kept in the collection of its second owner from 1998 until the selling dealer’s acquisition earlier in 2020, and now shows 18k miles. New tires were installed and a digital display repaired in preparation for the sale. This E31 is offered by the seller on behalf of a Connecticut dealer with manufacturer’s literature, partial service records, a clean Carfax report, and a clean California title.

The 850CSi wore altered front and rear bumper covers and featured a lowered ride height in contrast to standard E31 coupes. This example is finished in Hellrot (314), and close-up photos of the paint, trim, and pop-up headlights are provided in the gallery below along with paint meter readings. The seller states that the passenger-side door and the lower section of the front bumper cover have been repainted. Factory warning stickers are affixed to the windshield, and a phone antenna is mounted to the rear glass.

Staggered-width 17” M-System wheels feature polished lips and “throwing star” covers, with all wearing Bridgestone Potenza tires showing 2019 date codes and installed by the selling dealer. The car features four-wheel ABS and traction control. The front struts were replaced at 18,300 miles in 2013, while the braking system was flushed 30 miles later in 2019.

The cabin is trimmed in black Nappa leather with color-matched plastics and carpets protected by BMW mats with 8 embroidery. Wood accents adorn the dash, center stack, console, and door panels.

Equipment includes a power sunroof, power-adjustable front seats with position memory for the driver, dual-zone automatic climate control, a trip computer, a stock cassette stereo, and a period carphone. The digital odometer indicates just over 18k miles. One of several digital displays was repaired in preparation for the sale.

Full recent service records, carfax, more detailed photos and undercarriage photos can be obtained by our team at request. The 5.6-liter S70B56 V12 was fitted with a Dinan performance ECU chip by Exclusive Motor Cars of Laguna Hills, California, at 6k miles. An oil change was performed in June 2019, at which time the upper and lower radiator hoses and the battery were also replaced.

Power is delivered to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual transmission. The car is equipped with a Racing Dynamics exhaust system. Additional photos in the gallery show the underbody, suspension, brakes, and wheel wells in detail.
