  • A Rare Asset...

    By Dr. Smooth Chocolate on Wednesday, June 24, 2009

    I have owned this 840CI for a little over a year. I am constantly being ask to sell it, told how good it looks, given thumbs up, stopped to be asked questions about it such as the year, if it's an 850, or a 12 (It is shaved meaning no model number decals and very customized). I have thought about selling it, but it is hard to imagine not having it anymore! You'll have to own one to understand! As an owner you are part of a small exclusive international group. If you ever get to own one, as other reviews have stated, you will need to find a quailified 8 series tech, have reasonable deep pockets($$), buy at least a very good conditioned "8" if not an excellent one, and always keep up on the vehicle maintence! I have raced various cars and trucks to be given a thumbs up with nod or the usual "Yooo, that's a fast car" when they catch me at the next light. Anyway, it is worth having if you can afford this exotic (Autobahn GT) car...

    It's BIG, It's Beautful, It's HOT HOT HOT. Yes it's bad on gas, but with a 5.4L 326 HP V12 you are expecting Honda Civic mileage? This car runs & rides like a dream & is so rare (last built in 98") that is stops people no matter where we go.Ultra SHARP!!... It sold for $93.5K- back in 96 & I have been told that BMW may bring it back in 09' @ a cool $250K-. So if you can find one in any model year (only 2,600 ever made), BUY it, you won't be sorry.......... Good Luck
  • Hiiiigh maintenance forever...

    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.
