While the 850Ci 6-speed manual we featured last week was certainly an attractive grand tourer, the V12 running costs may put some prospective enthusiasts off. For those, we have this car, the 840Ci. With four less cylinders a little bit of the servicing complication away without finding yourself down on too much power. This second to last year E31 coupe for sale in California has covered under 70,000 miles. If you desire a BMW coupe from the 1990s but want to stand out from the crowd, these grand tourers are a good way to go about it.

I’ve always wondered why BMW didn’t offer the three-pedal option on US bound 840Ci coupes, but I guess the take rate of manuals with the V12 engine wasn’t great and by the time we got the V8 version, the writing was on the wall in terms of the 8er’s lifespan coming to an end stateside. Prices for non-CSi E31s have stayed rather steady in recent years, and at just over the $20,000 mark for a clean, lower mileage example, we’re not far off the mark.
