The numbers would suggest that there are many better performance options than the BMW E31. Even in top-spec CSi trim, there are faster, flashier cars that are available for less – sometimes much less. For example, you could have a much quicker 996 Turbo today for less money than the asking price of most CSis. Indeed, if you’d like to save a lot of money, there are other options too; countless AMG Mercedes, 928s – even a stray E24 M6 will give the CSi a run for its money. But the combination of style, presence and the promise of exclusivity have their own draw much as they do with other notorious under-performers, such as the Grand Touring Ferraris. Can you buy a Corvette that’s faster? Yes, but that’s not the point. However, the CSi is still a lot of money for most people to consider, especially for an occasional car. Back down your expectations a notch, though, and you can get 85% of the CSi if you look in the early 850i 6-speeds:

I believe the color is Laguna Green, and indeed it’s quite rare as is the 6-speed option. I’m not sure of exact production numbers, but sufficed to say you’re not likely to run into another all that soon. Condition overall appears to be good to very good, though there are no real close-up shots to show the condition of the paint, wheels or underneath – or even the engine bay. The dealer claims it spent $3,000 on a mechanical refresh, an easy sum to achieve if indeed they fixed the air condition and refreshed the suspension pieces. You could even make it a little flashier by adding in some M-Parallels, like this set I found on eBay:
Price is about spot-on where we’d like to see these 6-speeds; at about the same value right now as a clean, late run E24 6-series, they offer much more performance out of the box in addition to refinement and style. Plus, most of the late 6s were automatics (as were the 8 series), making this package desirable. It won’t light your hair on fire with shocking performance, but in the vein of the big luxury grand touring coupes, performance is more than adequate to have fun, get you there quickly, and of course there’s the smooth V12 refinement. Expect you’ll pay some big bills along the way to keep this E31 going, but these are really an undervalued classic right now.
