View Full Version : 850 or 330ci with M package?

07-07-2004, 10:40 AM
So, as I said i'm looking for an other car..

and there is a great E46 330Ci for sale in my street..
it has the M3 hood, rims, fenders, spoiler and he's thinking about the M3 engine as well..
it has only 1000km, and I can get it for a great price...

i'm thinking about selling the 850 at the BMW dealer, and buy for that money the 330Ci.. and then I still save some money, cause i'm also thinking about moving to a bigger house..

but anyway.. I know you guys don't see a 850 as often as we see them here.. but wich one whould you choose ?

my 850Ci:

or the 330Ci:

why didn't this guy just buy an m3?
It's probably costing him way more to turn it into 1

dunno.. 330ci is cheap in insurance..

that's a 330? looks like M3.

I'd keep the 850, hands down.

do you guys get escrot cosworths over there?
god i drool when i see thouse any ways youv had the 850 for what 2 years now and you have prolly loved it, if you think its time to move on by all means do so. I think eventually you sneak back to a car like the 850, once you own a rare car you always tend to stick to rare cars.

I don't like that 330, it doesn't look that great. Stay with the 850 for sure!!!

what kinda of a poll is this, the answer is obvious

07-08-2004, 02:38 PM
if you can buy the 330 for less then you sell the 850.. why not..

certain if you want to save money for a bigger house..

07-08-2004, 03:10 PM
i dont get people that do that too there car

it makes no sense financially on any level

Keep a clean original 8er... that E46 is crap.

07-08-2004, 07:43 PM
I say stay with 850 only if you gonna put some money into it....
ACS type 3s on a 850*mw*

You wouldnt be dissapointed with a M package 330 though,they are hot!

850 hands down...

07-08-2004, 10:25 PM
Keep the 850.

07-08-2004, 11:41 PM

07-09-2004, 12:51 AM
u sure thats a 330?
pretty good replica of the M

07-09-2004, 12:58 AM
U'd be crazy to take the 330... the 8 series is much less common/exotic ...

the 8er is much more rare...so i'd keep it

i wanna see the rear of the 330ci...the exhaust probably looks so awkward.

but nevertheless thats a freaking AWESOME m3-styled 330 :eek:

one of the best i've seen for sure

guys, he just said...in netherlands the 8 is more common than over here....that being said...i'd trade it in, and get an M5. lol..

his car is older, going to a newer car, and a new house is better IMO.

I really like the 850ci Rene. Looks tight. Also the 330i looks tight but it just doensn't have the charm of the 8 series + it hasn't that much room in front. And you just like that (you know what I mean :P)
