Not a bad price if in good condition and not needing major maintenance. Maint can be very expensive to keep the car in good running condition, it all depends on how well the previous oowner(s) maintained it.

Congrats on your purchase ...hopefully , the best 7K you ever spent. I've had my J-spec 840 for about 2.5 yrs now, I smile everytime I look at it, and smile even bigger when I'm driving it......don't smile so much when I have to take it in for ...but, as they say...." The price of cool ain't cheap"......and for me, The 8 is one of the coolest looking cars I have ever seen. Repairs aren't as bad as most people think, especially with the 840. If the car hasnt been well maintained, it'll cost a few $ to get it uo to par.

There are quite a few 8 members in California...hopefully one will chime in and recommend a good mech for you, one that has experience on these cars. If you have trouble sourcing parts....Check out Gault BMW in NY....Charlie Spears deals with alot 8 members....there is an 8 series hotline phone # ( should be on their site).

Get used to people complimenting you on your car, and asking you about the car. Almost everytime I drive it, Someone always says....." wow, what beautiful car"....or " Is that a new BMW model, I have never seen /heard of it before".... " Can I take a Picture of it".....its kinda funny, makes me laugh.

Hope you enjoy yours as much, as I do mine....for many years to come:thumbup:

Heres a short,crappy vid of my car on take off w/ new exhaust.
