the top right part of your map is my property akshay. this i know but you said Race course road so i was confused. this i believe is called worli naka or E.Mosses road. Race course road is known as the portion after mahalaxmi station upto Haji ALI.

ok guys with a little scooping around and talking i have found out the car has been in an accident and was in a garage for the past six months. the car i am told is not in the best of shape, as it was hit in the front (extent of damage has not been mentioned, but it is bad) and that is why it is being sold. i wonder why it was not sent to the official BMW worshop to be fixed. i would say now the car is not worth more than 10 lacs. this has still not detered me from wanting it.

Tang firstly welcome to the Forum, hope you have a blast here.
the car according to me is not worth more than 15 to 20 lacs. the front end was damaged bad as i have been told and the car is not in the best of health.
it is a great looking car but the bills to fix it if anything goes wrong are also going to be high.
the tender date is up but i did not go through that i spoke to the owners directly.

Tang since your new here, when you post do wait for sometime before reposting thinking your post has disappeared as your post would appear after being seen by a Mod. this is for your first few posts.

Boys.

If anyone is interested I could source some fab 850's for them in the UAE.

Lat Nov bought a 850CI for next to nothing and had great fun with it. Good to look at and a nightmare to own though.

Superb design but ahead of its times, too much electronics for its own good.

I have seen this one in Black in germany and was wondering what a car is this? Then realised it is not new rather a very old 8 series of BMW. Looks futuristic(the flip headlamps), like our "Stuart Little from Topgear says, its got those flip headlights and its cool".
