If you have any sense of style and taste, the decision should be already made........

there are many factors or then just style and taste, shit hits the fan in a 850, u better get ready to bend over, something happens to 330ci, under warrenty, plus if not, parts are not hard to find....many factors other then the 850 just gives you instant pimp status

I looked at getting an 8 and test drove a really nice example. The problem is they look cool but that's where it ends. They are not fun to drive, they and really large (imagine a 2 door 7 series) and very expensive to run and maintain. They are slow even with the V12 and corner like they weigh a ton. The back seat is useless They look pimp and are a great piece of BMW history, but I could not bring myself to buy one because of all these issues.

A few mods would change that though...thats the beauty of it...the engine is huge, I heard that its the gearing that makes this car slower than it should be, so changing the final drive ratio should fix it
