Which 1991 model would you choose?

Both of these cars are being sold in my area. Which one you would you choose to buy?

B7

S8
http://www.globalgarage.ca/138.html

I would think that the s8 would be more rare?

8er, it is more rare and distinguishable. So classy at the same time too!

Go with the 850 i remember seeing these in the early 90's man this car really stood out man i wish it's was a stick though then it wouldnt even be a doubt on which one to get, eitherway it goes that is a very clean azz car don't let i go by hey maybe you can transform it into a manual and make a thread about just my two cents

I almost want to pull out the checkbook because of those warranties! That was my whole issue with the 840Ci.... So much $$$ all the time.

Those cars + 2-3 year warranty =

22 grand is the asking price. How many e46 M3's do you see? Probably about 15 on the commute to work. Now have you ever seen a S8 in real life? Case Closed.

yah good luck maintaining those rare ass cars bc they are delicate
especially the 8 series as it was like competition to ferrari....
and ferrari maintenance is basically $1 per mile driven

i really don't think maintenance on an 8 series would be that bad. it's basically bmw parts and bmw engineering. sure some of the parts will be hard to find, but i still don't think they will cost as much as that of ferarri's.

You couldn't be more wrong. 8-series was rediculously expensive to maintain. Most dealers don't keep the parts in stock. They have to be ordered from Germany. Plus, almost none of the techs have ever worked on an 8er.....

Trust me....
