May not have been emission compliant, maybe low demand for that model.

1997 was it for the 8 Series in Europe and The USA; A total of 7000+/- 8 Series were imported to the US in all models.

To expand on the above, BMW initially believed they would sell 30,000 8 Series worldwide before the model was done, and they were WAY off in that estimate. The 840 and even 830 were introduced to help offset the tooling costs. BMW lost a pile on this car and that's why they tend to treat it like it never existed - a shame, since it one of the most beautiful and best driving machines they ever built. I personally owned a 1991 850i and currently have a 1994 840ci. Love 'em.
