1991 BMW 8 Series 850i V12 from North America
Rear & front wheel alignment and Computer pixel's are going out slowly.
The early 850i cars are great if you can find one with low miles and a clean service record. The smooth V12 does this car justice for power, The car can flat out get up for a car its size and weight, It's been said to be called a poor man's Lamborghini since the price has dropped on these cars over the yrs, But make no mistake about them with the right combination of mods and the right set up it can smoke some new cars.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have never ever heard that a BMW 850 has been called "A poor mans Lamborghini". The 8-series from BMW was in the same class as Lamborghini Diablo, Ferrari 456GT, Mercedes SL500 & 600, Jaguar XK8 & XKR. A Lamborghini is more expensive, but I don´t think that someone would buy a BMW 850 just because they can´t afford a Lamborghini. 850 is one of the most expensive cars ever built from BMW factory.
