The pinnacle of BMW design and engineering is captured in this "no expense spared to develop" ultimate BMW supercoupe. An absolute dream to drive, you are the master of the universe on the highway with monstrous amounts of torque available at any speed or in any gear to propel you past virtually any plebian motorcar you may encounter along the way. The design of the 850CSi stills turns heads 15 years following its introduction, and the car is swiftly becoming a collectible with a sizeable cult following. BMW simply never built one better than the 850CSi - it's the total package of exclusivity, luxury and performance.
The BMW 8 series introduced many of the items of technology that have now filtered down into garden variety BMWs. Unique to the 850CSi, though, the active rear wheels steering (AHK) was revolutionary, and made the handling of this large coupe seemingly defy the laws of physics.
Every characteristic of the 850CSi makes it unique and what it is. It's extremely difficult to improve this masterpiece.
The 8 is the most misunderstood auto
design of the 90's, not a sports car
but a pure touring luxury ride with the
heart of sport car, the best design BMW
has ever come up with. Its too bad
that BMW luxuary & Americans with soft
the E31 V8 is as smooth as they come,
power when you want it. A wonderful
truck that fixs two sets of golf clubs.
improvements that greating change this
GT touring to a hot ride is Plus 2 tire
and wheels, upgrade Dinan supension
Stage 3, Dinan flow thur exhuast
system, and Dinan engine chips. Now
thats a real hot ride.
If a person wanted to design and build
a comfortable, reliable and fast road
car all he would have to do is look at
the E31 to see how it should be done.
This automobile for it's bulk rides
like a true luxury car with fire in
This BMW draws your eyes like a fine
piece of art, when you look at it's
understated but muscular body it just
exudes refinement and power. No, it is
NOT a sports car, it is a machine that
pleases both your heart and soul.
If you have the chance to purchase one
of these Jewels do so, the only thing
you will regret is not getting one
before you bought what you have now.
Style, it is the best looking BMW I
have ever owned.
Drivablity,for a Luxury car it suprises
Quality of entire automoble is
Larger rims and tires
AUDIO system, I replaced the stock
pioneer with an Alpine and replaced the
4" drivers front and rear.
If you have the opportunity to drive
one of these German thoroughbreds, grab
that opportunity with both hands. This
is a superb machine engineered more
like a jet fighter than an automobile,
unlike the common or garden tin boxes
around today. Lie back in luxury and
float on air, effortlessly swallowing
up the miles. If you are lucky enough
to have the chance to buy one, do!
Seating ergonomics and general build
quality. The automatic self sealing
windows to reduce air noise show the
attention to detail.
Not much to improve! Depending on your
driving style, larger, wider wheels are
an option. I fitted 19" Hartge alloys
with Bridgestone Potenza S-03 tyres.
I have driven the car for 4 years and about 50,000. It steers great and the suspension is awesome. I dropped in the Dinan chips which boosted performance and was worth the cost.
I had an extended warranty that paid for some large repairs and I would not buy and 840 without one unless ou have a certified BMW mechanics
