Yeah the e31 8 series that had the v8 was the 840 all 850's had v12's in them my dad use to have a 850 manual (5.0) v12 which is very rare in the united states to find a manual 850 and it was pretty quick had lots of power and when you open that v12 up on the highway I don't think the m3 could touch it.When you drive it, it feels built and much more heavier that the m3.But it was a good car just had a few electrical problems wish he never sold it I loved the syle of that car...

My Ride: E46 M3
Just purchased an 850csi, I also have an E46 M3.

The M3 eats it all day to anything up to 220kpm....eventually the 850csi will drift past above 240kph.

But the 850 is 20 years older, anyway I bought the 8 for the way it looks and sounds....the M3 is just a great all round drive.

Thanks Stankia, very lucky to find it.
I've already been offered $10k more than what I bought it.....I believe there is only 3 Australian delivered in the country.
