View Full Version : thinking about selling the 850..

06-29-2004, 12:20 PM
I have the 850 for about 2 years now.. and i'm thinking of getting something else..

just looking for something special.. and I want to try a convertible..

Tiemen and I just came back from shop dealer-hopping.. (BMW, Alfa-Romeo, Mercedes-Benz and Audi).. but the most thing are all stock and 'normal' cars.. i hate that.. i want to drive something different.. that's why i bought the 850 in the first place..

anyway.. i'm just thinking about it...

I really like the M Coupé and the M Roadster.... and those aren't that extreme expensive anymore these days..

maybe a second hand Dodge Viper, Corvette or something :)
there are some real nice and fast TVR Chimaera's for sale here..

you guys any thoughs ?

06-29-2004, 12:27 PM
If you can actually find a mechanic that knows how to fix them, get the Viper.

06-29-2004, 12:31 PM
whats up man.

the 850ci is already a special car, a sweet one at that. But i can understand why you would want a different car. To me a different car and special one is a car that little pple recognize. But it all depends on your budget.

06-29-2004, 01:31 PM
just get a M3 cab and do-it up like there's no tomorrow............by the way, good luck against Portugal ......I hope Holland wins it all.........go ORANJE...*drink*

06-29-2004, 01:35 PM
Go from one big bmw coupe to another big bmw coupe. 645ci I dunno how it is over there, but when I see it on teh road, beside me, its something else. I love the way it sounds!

06-29-2004, 01:42 PM
^ you mean the new 645ci ?

that car sucks in my opinion.. the sounds of the engine is really disappointed for a 100.000 euro car..

I mean for a fully loaded 6'er you can buy a M3 CSL..

and the specs of the new 6 isn't that great..

06-29-2004, 01:49 PM
fastest BMW on the track

06-29-2004, 01:53 PM
M3 CSL...

06-29-2004, 01:54 PM
the M3 CSL !! the best bmw money can buy at the moment.. if you can afford it..

06-29-2004, 01:59 PM
what about this bad-ass ride:


allways loved the Evo's..

That's ok, I think I'll keep my radio, and my air conditioning. and not have cardboard trunk floors and have tires that can be used in the rain.

06-29-2004, 02:18 PM
you don't need a radio.. the engine is just horny to hear..
don't need air-conditioning... just roll down the windows.. and the carbon trunkfloors are just cool..

but yes.. the Michelin Pilot Sport suck in the rain :P

but hell.. if I had the money i whould allready drive it :D

06-29-2004, 02:31 PM
if I had money to waste, sure I'd buy it, but its not the case, so its not a car that I would buy with that kinda money. its not a carbon trunk floor, its CARDBOARD!

06-29-2004, 02:32 PM
get a Z06 if u can

06-29-2004, 02:50 PM
SL55...with mods ;)

brabus kit? http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/reviews/Mercedes-Benz/1087774847/images/3.jpg

brabus offers a K8 model (modded SL55) see if u can grab that, i hear even if its only 50hp more the TCM is adjusted and it feels like a totally diff car...keep in mind the SL55 is insanely fast as it is..

06-29-2004, 03:00 PM
yes, i'd go w/ brabus SL or even get the CL :)

06-29-2004, 05:10 PM
damn people.. don't have the finance for a SL... or a M3 CSL :P

but thnx for the input *th-up*

i'm going to see an american-car dealer tomorrow with Tiemen..
that dealership has Viper's.. Vette's.. Hummer's and all that kind of stuff..

06-29-2004, 05:15 PM
get a viper rt/10 . that is my fav american car every produced, and the body is somthing else. i would get that car over any other american car n its a blast to drive n will snap yr neck when riping it

M3ti Compact
06-29-2004, 06:03 PM
whats wrong with the 645i? You want something different...there are a lot more M3's than 645i's right now...

06-29-2004, 06:16 PM
if you are going american, get a Z06

06-29-2004, 07:28 PM
Viper is sweeeeeeeeet...it's been my dreamcar since i first saw the concept...fawking sweet ride it is!

a little expensive considering ur other options...but i'd get one just for the sheer adrenaline u'll get when u have the top down flooring it :cool:

06-29-2004, 07:55 PM

^^^ totally agree, if you want a American car, this is the #1 choice, handles much better than a Viper

06-30-2004, 12:04 PM
you keep saying it's not in your budget.


Do you want a 2-door? 2-seater? Is this a summer car only?

06-30-2004, 12:14 PM
my budget is about 40.000 euro's..
i want a coupe.. and it's a daily driver.. but i don't care that much about the gas.. cause i'm getting a good deal on gas over here.. because I work for the goverment :)

06-30-2004, 01:00 PM

06-30-2004, 01:20 PM

Youd be in a bigger PIMP sector if you got a E39 M5 instead...
Everyone i know...even people that hate BMWs said M5 is more pimp then M3*smoke*

07-01-2004, 07:58 AM
I like the M5.. but I don't need a big car.. all my friends have cars.. even my gf has one :D

anyway.. I just want a fast car.. and a 2-doors.. maybe a coupe..
so the M3 is better for me.. and faster then the M5..

325i Touring
07-01-2004, 09:09 AM
M3 is much nicer than a M5...

:confused: he really had it before that.. dunno if it was 2 years.. but defenitly over a year..

anyway.. he drove a Lotus Esprit Turbo SE this afternoon.. and he'd loved it.. so maybe he's getting one in trade of the 850..
