Other than that I don't have much info but before traveling 400 miles to look I wanted to have a heads up on anything that is a potential big issue for the 850 that's not common to a 3 or 5 series car that I am more familiar with. Thanks for the help.

Just from the "sound" of it, you might very well be better of saving yourself the time. M-Concept? - I doubt that. There is only one of those, and it is sitting in the BMW building in Munich. Past experince has shown that when you hear of a car that is "rare", "M-Concept", with 20" wheels and a 5,000 watt stereo system, that car has NOT been maintained mechanically. It is a bling-mobile. Do you have the VIN (last seven is sufficient). A large number of 8 series are in the registery and are known to us.
The car sounds like someone wanted to build a "Fast and Furious" car, and with the exception of one or two out there, they all look like crap, and ususally come with a ton of mechanical issues..
