1997 BMW E31 840 £8995 incl private plate For Sale

1997 BMW E31 840

4.4 Litre V8 Auto, M62 engine .

Looks and drives superb, the car draws admirers every time I go out in it. I have owned this vehicle for nearly a decade and driven all over the Continent in it as far as Austria. Its the perfect long distance tourer. Wafts along at 130 mph as though you were doing 50mph, very relaxing for long distance , high speed cruising. Because of my long distance Autobahn trips, it has been maintained to the highest standard. Popular exhibit at local car shows. Much money spent including a recent brand new set of 4 Genuine BMW M Parallel wheels bought from local BMW main dealer, probably one of the last sets available.

This car has the later 4.4 Litre M62 engine.The earlier engine had problems and they brought the M62 which produces more tourque and is nicer to drive. Its a chain cam engine with 4 valves per cylinder. This engine was in production from 1995 to 2005. There are some quite wild versions available with up to 400 bhp which would drop straight in but I found 282 BHP was more than enough, its very fast!

Top quality sequential Prins"VIS" Generation 2 Autogas system fitted. 70 LPG Litre tank fitted under the boot floor. You can drive on either petrol or LPG or lave it in auto and the System switches automatically between LPG and petrol. I normally achieve 30mpg on the motorway and early 20's round town with fuel costs approaching half that of petrol. Its as economical as a diesel but have you ever seen a diesel that looks or sounds this good?

Red with grey leather.The leather is in excellent condition because I have looked after it with regular hide food since I bought the car in 2010.

BMW Aerodynamik Paket with M-Sport Ferrari style mirrors. ZF Switchable steptronic sports gearbox. Stainless steel sports exhaust ( loud ! ) , Kenlow electric fan, Evans Waterless coolant, recent new batteries, 17 inch spacesaver spare, plus original full sized spare, Stormforce cover, genuine BMW 18 inch M Parallels.Recent waterpump, alternator,AC condenser, thermostat, header tank, radiator anti roll bar, thrust rod,wishbones, ball joints, rear discs , pads and hanbrake shoes, and gas service with new gassifier, recon heater sword with new mosfets. Gearbox fluid change with new gasket & filter, Dinitrolled regularly. Just been Serviced - 15th August 2019

Receipts for the above, huge amount of service history to keep with the car. I work in aviation and have maintained the car just like an aircraft. HPI welcome and the good HPI report from when I bought it is available to see.

Serviced and MOT'd July 2019. There are no significant faults, its ready to use and show.

MOT emission test show the engine is in excellent condition. CO = 0.121% well under the Maximum allowed of 3.5%. Milage is 167,000 miles which is well below average for a 22 year old car.
