1997 BMW 8 Series Coupe 840Ci 2dr Coupe


I fell in love with the 8-series when
it first debuted in 1991, and dreamed
of owning one. Purchased my mid-life
crisis car in 2000, and I have been in
driver heaven ever since. Handling,
handling, handling, on rails! Sinks
into the road at high speed (tops at
around 160, and yes, I got a ticket).
Just drove cross-country with it and it
was much more fun than flying first
class. Averaged 25 mpg for the 3500
mile trip! Now I have to buy an SUV,
because this baby will never see snow.
Can't say enough about the design and
execution. Routine maintenance costs
are what you'd expect for a car in this

Best Features

Handling, handling, handling. Great comfort, extremely responsive, high- speed on demand. Probably the best- designed vehicle BMW has ever built. Unique!

Worst Features

I can't think of a thing.
