I test drove a 1990 850i.It's a fast car..The interior looks a bit similar to my 328i..but it is very expensive to repair in order to make it a everyday driving car...an a V12 ...

Knight rider.....But expensive for a 15 yr old car....


Notice the exhuast(Very loud)


Old enjine but very fast and lots of maintenance required...

That car is not that expensive..but repair required ..too much....

That car costs about $56 000 (US$32 900)..and estimate repair to change this ,change that roughly$22 000(us$12000).

I don't wanna to buy that car..as i only wanna to try a 850i... ..I admit it's a very beautiful car but if there is one made with 6 cylinder i would consider...a v12 ...

if it was a 6 cylinder it would be worthless. the V12 is what makes the car.

BMW did actually make a small handful of 830i models in 1990-91, powered by the same 3.0L inline-6 that was in the 530i...


...but they destroyed them all when they decided that they just weren't powerful enough.

Gulelin,
Ya ur right..that car is expensive to maintain..and it's parts become limited nowadays...
e36_m3_Turbo,
Sorry,Just don't know where to post..it...
007ben,
i' m not serious in buying a 850i..and again it's very rare in my country...
Hoppy's535i,
Yeah..i know wat ur talking about...like as 24valve said the car
weren't powerful enough with a 3.0 L..in line 6...But for me it's enough...
545ismg,
I think the 850i have the same enjine with the 7 series 750iL enjine...
