Hello ladies and gents!
I've just joined up and wanted to say hi! I'm technically a liar because I don't actually own a BMW ... but, before the lynching starts, I'm currently in negotiations with a a guy to buy his 1995 E31 840ci Manual. I'm definately going to buy it, despite it not being in the best condition, because it's the 52nd made of 54, and there are only 34 registered in the UK (12 SORN) and I love the 8 series and I'm allergic to automatics!

Love the M-parallels, and the interior doesn't look as horrid in the leather.
There are issues with it that aren't listed;
Steering wheel is loose (can twist the rubber at the top)
Gear stick has about 3 miles of play
Sunroof doesn't work
Wheels need a refurb
Driver's seat is worn through on outboard bolster
But on the plus side, he just spent £1000 getting rid of rusty arches and boot lid and apparently is 'open to offers'.
So, I'm pretty excited about financially ruining myself with a petrol V8, thought you lot might like to pass judgment!
