    In today's money, the BMW 850CSi cost $175,000 when it was new. Today, I'm reviewing a BMW 850CSi to show you all its quirks and features -- and to show you why the E31 8 Series was such a cool car, especially the flagship 850CSi model.

I've always wondered why leather (particularly on seats) is considered a luxury item. Okay, it comes from an animal source and I imagine its expensive to produce but its such a poor material for the role. In cold conditions its uncomfortably cold, in the hot weather it absorbs heat and makes your arse sweat especially if you want any areas of bare skin like your arms. And the heated and cooled leather argument isn't that helpful as by the time its reached the desired temperature its too late. This person has clearly taken good care of their vehicle but look at the condition of those seats, all that cracking looks awful. I've seen many low mileage cars that have the same appearance and really detracts from the look. God forbid the previous owner weighs anymore than 70kg because it will look like a crumpled up newspaper.

I think....the oversized mirror dimmer switch is due to the fact that the same mouldings are used for the manual dimming version, so the knob is oversized because it operated the mechanical dimmer and was reused for the electric mechanism.

A BMW enthusiast would always gravitate towards the 80s to 2000. The E31s, E28, E34, E39, E46 E30 etc are the purest. Currently, it has become more inclusive so "EVERYONE " can have one and I cannot stand that. It use to be the 3,5, 6(90s), 7 and the M and not the 4, 1, 2 , x1, x6, x4.2, x3...etc.... And, there is no such thing as a 1 series M... BMW has tanked in the exclusivity department and just have too many to choose from and they all look the same. The only BMW I would acquire would either be the E39 M5 , E34 M5 or the 8 series.

It was not considere a M car because BMW at the end realized it is a very heavy and slow car to be considered that sport car. When it was being built BMW didn’t expect to be faster than what it really is

The 850 is a gt and no race car, so a hard oversteering would be uncommon. In fact understeering is the safer thing, that can happen. No untrained driver can really handle oversteering. It is made for fast long travels. The car has a traction-control-system (ASR), that provends the driver from a lot of bad mistakes. I had a 8er tuned by Schnitzer. Had perfect balance.

I owned a 92 BMW 850i NOT the much more valuable CSI although the difference between both is NOT huge enough to make a $70k difference. I just sold it 1 week ago. EXTREMELY glad to see it go. The cost of ownership/maintenance was obscene. The 850 was very VERY over engineered. In 1992 the car was nowhere near ready for all that technology. Fortunately I did not buy it brand new with the $98k price tag, I bought it in 2009 for $18k, just sold it for $16k and I cried in delight as I saw it vanish from my eyesight and vanish from my wallet. Fun car to drive, got plenty of looks but I got tired of seeing the look on my mechanics face eager to be make some big bucks on my car. Horrible car to maintain, absolutely a disaster. My daily drive is a 92 Jeep Wrangler, Renegade model that you actually did a review on. It is flawless. I also own a 1972 VW Baja Champion which they made only 1000 of these to commemorate their surpassing the Model T in production and VW success in offload racing. It is marathon blue with mag wheels and it gets tons of looks. I also have my first car bought new in 1976. A 50th Anniversary Black and Gold Trans Am, 455/manual. Those cars are rock solid vs. the horrors of the BMW 850i. I am so turned off by the 850 that you will never see me in another BMW ever again.

Why do people gush over this POS? It's beautiful. I'll admit that. But these cars break almost faster than you can fix them. How are unnecessary complexity & perpetual unreliability considered impressive auto engineering qualities? Kinda like making a really really fancy bucket with a hole it. Might be a nice bucket to look at, but kinda defeats it's purpose as a bucket.

The 750 and 850 can suffer from a lot of gremlins and a lot of computers for the era. Parts can be hard to come by or troubleshoot, but a properly maintained car isn’t all that much worse than anything else.

The complex hinge mechanism on the hood is needed for the pop up headlights. In order to encircle the headlights the hood has to translate vertically the last inches of closure. A simple rotation on one pivot point won’t work. (This is 1960s ponycar technology.)

In the early '90s I worked at Beach Auto BMW in the east end of Toronto Canada (the Beaches). The demo car of the one owner was a black, 6-speed, 850ci that looked exactly like the one pictured here. On Fridays I often got sent out to do errands for the owner's wife, and I was sometimes allowed to drive the 850. My impressions of it were that it was wasted in North America; at 60mph the car felt like it was barely moving, though deliciously smooth. I ran it up to 100 a few times, and it did it with zero fuss. It was wonderfully comfortable and capable, just a waste for our slow speed limits. I much preferred the owner's son's e30 M3.
