A E31 BMW 850i with twelve-cylinder and manual transmission is a sought-after exotic nowadays. Not quite as rare as the 840ci with eight-cylinder or the CSi top model, but still rare and popular. And now one of them is offered on Ebay with a complete one Body kit. And in our opinion, that doesn't necessarily mean an increase in value or even an improved look. And apparently most of the interested parties saw it that way too. Because of the planned 39.500 US dollars, the highest bidder wanted to pay just 13.100. Thus, the auction under the Ebay item number 124758053481 apparently ended with no highest bidder. The vehicle dates from 1992 and is box-shaped Wide body kit installed.

In doing so, (except the front spoiler) of the fender flares and Spoiler lip on the tailgate everything to be made entirely of metal. The 8 is completely in 3M Satin Black foiled and also has a new black one 20 inch wheelset with it. We think that's really cool CEIKA Big Brake Kit with improved calipers, brake discs and pads.

On the other hand, that is more questionable Wokke V2 chipset to increase performance allegedly 10 percent more. That means - at least in theory - the M70B50 now achieves approx. 330 PS & almost 500 NM. And the software also eliminates the electronic lock at 250 kilometers per hour. Finally there was something black inside Alcantara (Headliner, dashboard, glove box, etc.) and a supposedly $ 5.000 sound system with Pioneer components.

dark taillights, black windows, dark BMW emblems, black kidneys, dark turn signals, etc.

The new sound system comes with new speakers, a subwoofer and infotainment in the center console. We know of course that "Beauty is always in the eye of the beholder". However, we have examined the vehicle extensively and have come to the conclusion that it definitely belongs in our tuning fail category because WE have it can not be consider it beautiful. We even find that the term Craft shop is appropriate. What is your opinion about this? Beautiful or not so beautiful? Please leave a comment here!

    It's a cruel heap of handicrafts. Awful. To spoil the design of this icon with these Prollo components. But don't say anything about Wokke that you haven't checked. The man is of integrity. Of course 10% is an announcement with a naturally aspirated engine, but I would simply leave out your unverified opinion. Accusing someone of lying is dishonest. I know him personally and I am glad that he is the only one far and wide to take care of my 8, because no one else has any idea about it.
