1996 BMW 840 CI 4.4 V8 INDIVIDUAL M62 ENGINE AUTOMATIC
Complete Service History (Just Serviced)
Rare Estoril Blue/Ivory Nappa 1 Of 139 Made
Style 5 2 Piece Split Rims
Wonderful Condition
109,000 Miles

First registered and pre delivery inspected by Green Bower BMW on
07.08.1996 and was continued to be serviced by the supplying dealer
for the first 10 years spanning more than 72000 miles. The service
book details 11 service stamps together with a thick wad of bills
repairing many of the typical issues that the model is known for
being compromised with as time shifts on (detailed below).
Five owners with the most recent keeper’s tenure dating back to 2011
and he looked after his 8 series extremely well being used as a high
days and holidays ride and keeping it garaged when not in use. The
car has proved extremely reliable in the time he owned it replacing
parts on a precautionary basis rather than waiting for them to fail.
To this end he spent in excess of £5000 keeping it tip top as
documented below.

Two working remote keys in good condition, with a full-size split
rim alloys with a good tyre and a complete toolkit. Within the
paperwork is the factory build sheet which details all the specified
options when new.

Estoril Blue is for many the definitive colour for the model, with
very few of them being built as was an expensive option being part
of the individual programme and the car carries the plaque under
the bonnet to verify said. This, together with the other factory
options, makes this is a very appealing investment 8 series that
will bring the next owner heaps of satisfaction, and, will always
be the easiest one to move on in the future and should in theory
appreciate faster. In my experience Estoril Blue cars always carry
a few thousand pounds premium over other shades.

M62 Engine
Beginning in March 1996 the 840Ci was delivered with the M62B44
4.4L V8 engine. Despite the higher cubic displacement, the peak
power of the M62 remained the same 286 hp as in the M60B40. The
engine characteristics with higher torque figures compared to the
predecessor made the new E31 feel lighter and nimbler and managing
to return higher mpg. Having driven both, the engines feel different
to the later offering being virtually bombproof providing the cooling
system is maintained. This really is the engine of choice with the
ability to return 22-23 mpg average and up to 30 mpg on the run.

The E31
A sleek sophisticated 90s GT. A body shape that turns plenty of
heads when driven alongside the generic Euro-boxes of today, and,
prices are only going to head one way. A car that has huge presence
on the road and is really rather unforgettable. The design has not
dated, the pillarless body shape still looks as if it’s come from
the future. This is a grand tourer of the old school, designed to
cocoon its occupants across continents at a high speed, it arrives
in style.
With a driving position that's adjustable every-which-way and
supportive leather-clad chairs, you'll get out after covering
hundreds of miles feeling fresh and relaxed - and, that really
is what this car's all about. And, you'll be able to spend those
miles playing with the vast range of toys that come as standard.
One thing it didn't lack was kit, so as well as all the usual
layout-saving accoutrements you'll find items such as climate
and cruise control, a superb sound system and an on-board computer
stacked within the vast dashboard.

The cosmetic condition is excellent with respect to paint, the
engine bay is immaculate with no leaks and there are no current
faults, all systems are go. The car drives wonderfully having
been freshly serviced. The alloys are pristine, tyre condition
is very good.
