Japan CSi´s

 Only two 850CSi´s with country code L807 exist. This does not mean though that those were the only CSi´s destined for Japan. 

Evaluation of all E31´s with unspecified country codes revealed that no less than 16 additional 850 CSi were delivered to Japan between November 1993 and February 1994.

  6 BARBADOSGRUEN METALLIC (247) 
  4  TOBAGOBLAU METALLIC (256)
  4 DIAMANTSCHWARZ METALLIC (181) 
  2 CALYPSOROT METALLIC (252)

The two CSi´s with country code 807 came to Japan in June 1994 and June 1995 respectively.

Hence the total of 850CSi´s delivered to Japan is 18.
