    I wonder if the good people here can help me (and my neighbours') sanity? After a period of being laid up while I was out of work I'm now readying my 840 for a new MoT and treating it to new tyres, wheel refurb and one or two other items to make it legit again. Anyway, to cut to the chase I'm...

    In the near future I'm hoping to replace my exhaust system with a stainless steel system from the manifold all the way back. I'm just curious if the 840ci has 2 cats or 4.

    Hi, I have a 1996 840ci. Purchased from a guy in London(why I mentioned this will make sense later). When driving normally everything is fine. Upshifts and downshifts are smooth. However when cruising at around 50-60mph (5th gear at any speed really) and I accelerate hard, the revs jump up...

    Hi Chaps, So I have developed 2 problems on the old girl. One which has been issue for ages is very noise when cold on the rear drive shaft. No vibrations in the transmission tunnel.

    Hello all, just a quick introduction; I'm an American living in France and I have to admit, I've whisked away one of your wrong sided steering wheeled cars to live with me in France as a project car. As compared to here in mainland Europe the price was much cheaper, even considering the new...
