Sold my Porsche a couple weeks ago and I have been looking for another car but wasn’t in a rush since my wife is working from home so I have been driving her car.

I loved the Porsche and was looking at getting another one but it was hard to find what I wanted and when I finally did it sold just as I was going to pull the trigger.

Before the Porsche I was driving a BMW 650i which was an awesome car so I was also looking at possibly another BMW.

Well today was the day. Went and picked this up this afternoon. It’s an M850i. Amazing car. I have so much to learn and read up on as far as technology. This car can back itself out of tight spots without you being in the car, will change lanes for you, and of course it will park for you if you want. I’m not going to use any of these functions but it’s cool to have.

While I was driving it home from the dealership, I changed lanes without signaling and it thrust me back to my lane lol. It’s crazy fast too. 523 Horsepower.

I’m gonna have some fun with this one.

What did you do with the newer Mod license plates you received not all that long ago it seems like? They going on the nice new ride too?

Congrats on the new ride. 👍

Nice going Hamed. Beautiful!
BMW has made that a good looking car, when the 8 series first came out I thought it was ugly, especially since at that time it replaced an extremely popular 6 series. Century guys were pretty good guys back in my day.

Easiest deal I’ve ever made on a car. Great dealership.

Still strong. Inventory on well kept ones is sparse. I sold mine 30 minutes after listing.

Sweet Baby Jesus...what a beautiful car.

It has a V8, right? I just read a review about the car yesterday and it discussed the I6 at length. It sounds like it's another badass BMW six banger, and with its reduced weight compared to the V8, it supposedly makes for a more responsive road car.

But the V8 is mucho más rapido. :D

Great looking car! You will be super happy with it. I bought my wife the X5 M in the same color combo and it's definitely the best car we have ever owned. BMW has really stepped up to the plate with features, ride quality and horsepower. Hope you enjoy it!

I never thought much of the 6 series until a couple years ago I chased one around Willow Springs on an open track day. Impressive performance! The added HP of the 8 series is probably a blast to drive.

We drove to Ventura today to visit a friend. I found out that it’s basically a self driving car. Pushed a button on the freeway and it drove itself. I took my foot off the pedals and it controlled the whole thing. Took my hand off the steering wheel and it told me to put my hand back on.

It’s not quite a Tesla but it’s awesome.
