    There was an 8 series in the movie "Heat". It was driven by Robert DiNiero.

    Last Nite 7:30 PM June 30th, Olympic and Spaulding Dr. in Beverly Hills/Century City Adjacent... Black 8 with gray interior whizzed by me.

    I never report sightings because it seems futile IMO since there seems to be a new-found stuffed cornucopia of 8ers suddenly alive & ticking away in the city of Los Angeles.

    I had the pleasure of randomly cruising with a perfect condition Mauritius Blue 850 down Venice Blvd for a couple of miles a few weeks ago. The couple driving this gorgeous 850 were all smiles (so was I). It made my otherwise very stressful day a real treat.

    The Charles with RD wheels that I know is in AZ.

    I'll get the VIN on the way out if it is still there when I leave.

    Debadged with partial ACS kit and BBS wheels parked on Redondo @ La Brea... Perhaps an 8 that was just worked on by the huge bodyshop on Olympic & Redondo? If so, then I bet the owner didn't know that this car had been parked on the street for at least a couple of days in an area where there are lots of cars broken into daily.

    Come to think of it, I've seen a white 8 a couple of times in Westwood, too, a while back. I'm not sure if it had BBS wheels but it did have 2/3 ACS trim on it.

    There are 2 8s parked near where I live, I'll document them whenever I whizz by 'em.

    2010 850 whooshhh!

    Rt-1 north of Chadds Ford PA today 5pm. Black 2010. I was in my daughter's Silver 330ci (very un noticable)

    I got to see it in action too! She acellerated to slip in between two cars.. the SOUND got my attention first.. then 200 feet later it slipped back out of traffic and off an exit and made the most incredible sound and it was GONE.

    For the next 20 minutes I was adding up the remaining equity in my house.

    I doubt you're on here.. but thanks dude!

    Bet that. The 650 emblem looks a lot like an 8. Fooled me once a couple of months ago. It's a 650.

    650

    I tell ya the dude had an 8 on there :/

    When I got home I did a search, wondering "when did they do that and how did I miss it?" and found article after article about the 2010 release of the "new" 850. Granted these were 2006 articles. I then looked in BF to see if there was a section for the newer model.. nope. Google had plenty of pictures too. Yeah- the internet never lies!

    I'll delete my post, and this one.. unless it has comedic value to anyone.. don't I feel silly.

    Still Nice 6!

    I love the wheels, tires, and stance.

    The wheels look like MK Motorsport MK1 18" wheels that have been powder-coated dark gray.

    I'm wondering the following:

    • What springs he is running to get that drop
    • What the width of the front and rear wheels are
    • What the tire sizes are (width and sidewall)

    Bonus points for identifying the owner on bimmerforums, so we can ask him ourselves.

    Thanks in advance.

    Upon further research on the MK Motorsport MK1 e31 wheels, the fronts are probably 18x9.5 and the rears indeed 18x11. Now I'm wondering about tires. Because of the various tire sizes you can mount on an 18x11 and 18x9.5 wheel, I always wonder what people are running to get the specific look they have.

    Some like the stretched look and other like extra sidewall protection..sometimes the tire is flush with the wheel edge and is straight instead of bulgy.

    This is a car spotting thread and not really for this type of discussion, but with those wheels (and good luck finding a set btw) you could easily go with 255/40 and 295/35 on 18's....believe me you'd have tire patch. Different brands of tires have different sidewall profiles. A Nitto or Michelin PS2 will have a 'blockier' sidewall than say, a Pirelli or Vredestein. Given what I know of your desired goals Michael, concentrate on a tire with very strong reinforced sidewalls.
