"Like other reviews on here, I also followed the 8 series since conception. I looked at ads for years and years until I found the perfect one for me. 1 year ago I bought a 1993 850CI. It is amazing..! Heads turn. People stop me every time I get out of it.. Lowered with CSI body kit, full stainless, chips, etc... I've put a little into maintenance but nothing nightmarish like you might read.. Buy one!"
"I loved this car from the first time I saw it. The styling and technology is still leading edge. I purchased my 840ci in 2006 after years of eyeing them. Took a while to find the right one, but found one in excellent condition. Only very minor repairs to date, replacing hoses, brake pads etc. The best part about his car is that it is an exotic. It performs like one, rides like silk and gets attention where ever you go. Smiles and thumbs up on the freeway are an everyday greeting when driving this car. I spent less than $20k on mine and I would put it against any car costing $50k today without hesitation. All you need to do is put in a updated stereo with GPS nav and bluetooth and you have todays cars beat hands down.
Oh and by the way, you'll have $30k left over!!!"
"I have owned one of these cars since '99 and still love it as much as when I first bought it.
The lines of this car never go out of style. They only made less than 300 of these a year and you never see very many around adding to why they are a cool car to have.
This car is as fast as you need it to be and as long as you are 6'2" or under it is a comfortable ride.
Very quiet inside the cabin when driving and was truly a car ahead of its time!"
"The shark nose beamer is truly a blast from the past. If you ever have an oppurtunity to drive one, do it, you will not be dissapointed. If they would of only came out with a convertible to compete with Mercedez, they may have very well been still producing the 8 series today. Everybody has a 3 series, you don't see to many 8 series anymore. Enjoy if you have one!!!"
