What do you all think about BMW 850csi?

What do you all think about BMW 850csi? It roughly has the same performance as the E90 BMW 328i and it is much older. Would you drive one if you could get one in good conditional at an affordable rate?

Back in the days I loved the 850 and always wanted one. Today I do not feel the same. Personally I am happy with my E90.

Everyone sees vehicles in a different light. It is this reason we all do things different to our cars.

What ever descision you make I am sure it will be just fine.

Good luck!!!

I love the looks of the 850. Seen a couple of them around town and they look great.

I still love the E31. It has M1 bloodline to it and lines that seem timeless beyond it's early-90's birth. It is a big GT coupe, and even if straight line acceleration numbers may be close to an E90 328i, it is not as light or nimble handling. With two DMEs on the not-so-simple S70 engine as well as a huge inventory of complicated electronic parts, it would be more work to keep humming...
