1991 BMW 8 Series 850i 2dr Coupe

Review

Painted in non-factory Lamborghini yellow and with M5 18 inch "parallel" chrome rims, it looks simply stunning. Since I live in Acapulco, my son living in San Diego keeps the BMW garaged and serviced. The 850 is driven every other day, and I personally get to use it for a week every two months or so. There are few cars for any amount of money, that offer this fabulous driving experience. A real head-turner, even in La Jolla people just stop and stare. The rear seat, once you get in, is extremely comfortable, and regularly drive around with 4 passengers. The 850 is so quiet and stable that it is easy to go 100 MPH without noticing. In Sport Mode, performance is awesome.

Best Features

This car was, and still is, BMWs "car to end all cars". After a year I am still finding new features. Sophisticated rear suspension. The 300HP 12 cyl is almost silent. Gobs of torque. Braking is amazing with no fade. I get 17 MPG city and up to 22 MPG hwy. Long trips in effortless comfort. Very safe

Worst Features

This exotic collectible WILL require maintenance. Shares engine with 7 series Has dozens of sensors and sophisticated computer which will tell you when NOT to drive it. Must be driven every few days or the twin batteries will discharge. Car is very heavy at 4350 lbs, should have been 3500 lbs.
