8 series question
Is it practical to purchase an 840 that has the smaller v8 or should I just wait to find the 4.4? Want the car because of the styling mostly but it would be step up from my v6. Any big difference in the two engines? Or should i just what for a v12 850.

V12 all the way!
easier to work on, easier to diagnose issues, and every man needs to own a V12 at least once in his lifetime...

The white one gets 21-22 on the highway with cruise control, the black one gets 19-20. City driving is around 13-15 for each.

White one is stock except for MAGNAFLOW exhaust, and WOKKE V2 chips.
Black one has 3.91LSD rear, SuperSprint Exhaust, WOKKE V2 chips (among many other "goodies")

4.4 is the way to go if you want a 8 but 12 is the way to go
