I am the 3rd owner of this 850i.
I purchased this car from eBay in 2006 and have had a lot of fun with it but it is time for someone else to own it.
I have some of the maintenance records but not all of them.
Over the past 7 years I have done a lot of work to this car, it has a new steering box, new suspension bushing, the tires have less the 2,000 miles on them.
I had the front camber plates added and the rear shock tower reinforcement plates, the euro CSi sport mirrors and the euro light control module that allows all the lights to turn on when using high beams.
The Eisenmann race exhaust was put by me and the cats and center mufflers have been removed, there is resonators in the pipes to keep it from being to loud but still has a very nice note to it.
I had an E34 M5 3.91 LSD put in and it makes it a lot more fun to driving around town.
For the rest of the mods on this car see below.
The gauge cluster did go bad and was replaced from another car see milages below, you will get the original cluster and ekm with the car.
I have the front license plate bumper piece that will come with the car. I have the original car phone if you want it.
There is some bad spots in the clear coat on the paint.
Please come see this car in person and drive it.
Please call Blake Edwards with questions at 765-730-0127

At the end of the day, your friendly Autoblog editors are car guys, just like you. So, while we might have more of an opportunity to test some of the most interesting vehicles on the new car scene than does your average gear head, we can still be found whiling away those long afternoon hours looking at used cars and thinking about what could be.

Just the other day, we had a vivid reminder about one of our dream cars from the very recent past, the 2011 BMW 1 Series M Coupe. If you didn't catch it, Michael Harley had a great time testing and reviewing the new Dinan S3-R version of the car, which throws an impressively engineered turbo and suspension tune on a BMW that was damn near perfect out of the box.
In the Comments section of that review, a few savvy Autoblog readers pointed out that our estimated price for a used donor car, set at $50,000, was low. Odd, we thought, as the car retailed for less than $50k ($46,135) when it was new in 2011. So we started checking around.
After ninety years in business and first-to-market motorcycle innovations like the one-piece 'tunnel' crankcase, hydraulically dampened front forks and full fairings, as well as that trademark boxer engine, BMW Motorrad is celebrating its nonagenarian status with a video: You can follow the ride on BMW motorcycles from 1923 to now in just 90 seconds.

Okay, so there's more than a video - some anniversary-themed bikes and a new retro boxer model celebrating the R 32 "airhead' from 1923 also commemorate the occasion. But you can start with the video, and that's below.
This BMW Concept Active Tourer has evolved for the nature and cycling set and premiered at OutDoor Friedrichshafen, a trade fair in held this month in Germany. The sturdy wagon is tweaked with new materials, accessories and ConnectedDrive features for those who do a lot of their living under the sky as opposed to inside their cars.
Under the hood is the same plug-in hybrid drive system we've were introduced to in 2012, featuring a transversely-mounted, 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine paired with an electric motor and a battery pack under the rear compartment floor. Total output is 190 horsepower and 147 pound-feet of torque headed to the front wheels, a claimed time from zero to 62 of under eight seconds, a pure electric range of up to 19 miles, a top speed of 124 miles per hour and claimed fuel economy of around 95 US miles per gallon.
The space behind the rear seats is the showcase, with a transformable compartment that can stow two bikes on built-in, retractable carriers. Remove the front wheel and seat from the bikes, then the frames can be locked into place using two rails and brackets. The wheels can be stowed in a holder attached to the right rear seat, the saddles can go into a compartment in the load floor. If you need to make a quick adjustment or a fix, you can do so since the bikes are aligned across the load bay.
