1997 BMW 8 Series 840Ci 2dr Coupe

Review

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 class.

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.
