Description:

1991 BMW 8-Series

Unfortunately my time with her has not been as long as I had wished. I acquired this car as a project just before my wife became pregnant and now with the baby sitting next to me and 3 projects running at the same time... I have to prioritize my time.
This is a rare 6 speed manual version of the 850i. This was the first production v12 to be fitted with a manual gearbox. Very few made it to the US, and very few were produced world-wide. This is a piece of BMW history, and I wish I had the time to finish it and tuck it away in my garage...

Antique title in hand as the car is now antique plated in PA. There is an odometer discrepancy on the carfax (check pictures) however I don't understand why that discrepancy exists since the mileage has been declared as 156k. I had no issues transferring the title from the original owner. If you are from PA I can sell the custom antique plate to you for an additional fee, the custom plate is literally "850i"

It needs work, but it's all there. Runs and drives, but again, needs work. I wouldn't drive it home again. I drove it 30 miles to my house and it didn't stall, but didn't feel very stable. Temperature was consistently in the operating range on a 97 degree day driving it home, good which is a plus!

Clutch is the main issue from what I can tell. Could also be a master/slave issue, pedals are sagging. Power steering pump may also be going or need fluid. Engine runs fine, no issues, idles well. Can provide videos on request.

-Two brand new batteries with a 5 year warranty (duralast gold)
-Many of the parts you do not see in the picture are included in a box like the kidneys.
-Also includes a set of better condition black leather interior, door panels, seats, center console, front and back. Only pieces that are not there to match are the dashboard (dark grey in the car, black would match perfect) and the other parts attached to it. I can include a bottle of black leather dye for the two leather trim pieces on the dash.
-I also have a full set of replacement weatherstripping for the entire car. Being a pillarless design, it never hurts to keep it around, as there are a lot of areas water could seep in.
