The vendor purchased this Diamond Black 850i as a project. The V12 engine has subsequently been fully overhauled by 8 Series specialist Chris Burton, during which: the heads were skimmed; valve seats and broken rocker arm replaced; and new valves, stem oil seals, timing chain and gaskets installed. Other items replaced include: plugs; leads; distributor caps; coils; lambda sensors; brake discs and pads; track rod ends; washer jets; batteries; and horn. This is a high specification 850i that features: rare six-speed manual gearbox, sunroof, climate control, six-CD autochanger, heated sports seats with memory, full Parchment-coloured leather interior and rear blind. The vendor currently grades the interior trim and engine of the BMW as 'very good', the bodywork and transmission as 'good', and the paintwork (which has a key scratch on the passenger door) as 'average'. It comes complete with thousands of pounds worth of invoices, original manuals, old tax discs and an MOT to July 31st 2017.
