BMW 8 Series owners out there. ??

BMW 8 Series owners out there. ??
Hello All E31 owners, 840's or 850's. Let's communicate. Certainly one of the most beautiful models produced by BMW. Reminds me of an M3 on steroids. I know there are not many in SA, but let's hear from you. What do have ? Mileage ? Model ? I have a 1995 840CI. Dream car 850 CSI, hoping to find one at some stage for my garage.

Wow those are two amazing cars! I think this shape is so under rated but those in the know have a proper gem on their hands. What's the value on one of these at the moment?

Two stunning cars. Awesome, lovely colours as well. great job done there. Enjoy them.

Hi Reinhard,
I am the proud owner of a1995 BMW 840CI - VIN OCB97724.
The car was originally purchased by a Mr F Longhorn of Aberdeen Ireland. It was then bought by a Mr Helmut Gobel who lived in the UK but moved back to ZAR and brought the car with him.
I purchased the car in 2009 and it was in a very, VERY sad state of rust and disrepair.
I made a project over an 18 month period of stripping the car down to bare metal, body and mechanically.
What could not be repaired was imported new again from The UK and Germany. bearings, bushes, control arms, rear suspension. ABS pump, and sensors replaced. Aircon compressor and evaporator replaced with original parts. Every brake pad, discs and pipes replaced. And more, too numerous to mention here including new original radio.. All parts were given 5 coats of enamel / epoxy before installing. Every bolt was first dipped in copper compound and re-torqued to "blue" and marked.
The entire interior was re-paired and leather panels replaced where necessary and new carpets and underfloor soundproofing installed. Re-sprayed by BMW Coachworks to original colour. The motor had been replaced by BMW dealership in the UK and only has 76K on the odometer.
