"I got my 1997 840ci 21/2 years ago from someone who used it as a week-end driver and kept excellent service records. Car has been very dependable. It is so comfortable (I am 6'1" tall) and runs great! Everyone asks about it because they haven't seen one. What a cheap thrill! If you can find one well maintained...BUY IT!!"

"I can't imagine another car that I would enjoy driving more than my 850. It has been a loyal, reliable companion and remains an excellent value. Solid, Smooth and Sassy."

"God, but you have to love the BMW 8 series, in either the V-8 or 12-cyl. versions. That low-slung design looks great after 20 years, with its M-1 nose and pert tail. And as a road tourer, it's still pretty competitive if you're not too fussy. As a local BMW specialist shop-owner says, "Think of it as a Ferarri with a Bimmer badge." And it costs like a Ferarri to maintain, no question. Virtually no part is common with any other BMW. If you need a front bumper, it's over two grand in the box; then you need to put it on the car, which costs hundreds more. Rebuilding the pop-up headlights is another two grand, again just for the parts. Still, our 1997 840 -- in the family from new -- continually turns heads with its exotic looks. Just prepare to turn your pockets inside out in exchange for not paying depreciation on something newer. It's probably a wash, as long as you don't lose a transmission or have serious engine trouble; if so, you're toast. I've spent $2,300 per year on avg for the 7 years since we bought the car from my wife's uncle at wholesale. And it looks like the 8 series has about stopped depreciating...a good late one (and you can find one if you're patient) still costs north of 12 grand, and there you are -- with a Ferarri that'll keep you poor, but will make your heart sing every time you turn the key."
