This 1991 BMW 850i is finished in Laguna Green Metallic over a tan interior and is powered by a 5.0-liter V12 paired with a four-speed automatic transmission. The car was reportedly purchased new in Florida and was registered to its original owner in Iowa before being acquired by the seller in July 2019. Services within the past four years have reportedly included replacing the O2 sensors, spark plugs, crank case vents, intake manifold gaskets, and more. Now showing 25k miles, this E31 is offered with its removed factory wheels, factory literature, service records, a window sticker, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Florida title in the seller’s name.
