thanks for the reply - it definitely maks sense. I'm just getting started in figuring things out, but I'm in no rush, so I'll definitely do my homework.
One question, regarding 840i vs 850i... To me 850i sounds cool and a little more power never hurts, but then, I'm sure it's heavier and more hungry, so what's the main thing you get in an 850i vs 840i? Is there anything tangible that's definitely better or will it be more of a personal feel and preference thing? It may be a convoluted question, but I think you'll understand what I'm getting at...
