    Black 840 basketcase Rt-1 Belair MD

    Out of the corner of my eye- I saw the tail light. Turned around and drove into the business- looked like it was parting out.. nope. Someone is having it "fixed up" (that's all I'll say for the sake of the owner's privacy.. to not steal thunder). I didn't get the VIN but if I end up talking to the guy I'll ask if I can log it. My car freaked the shop owner out- some kind of a sign sent from the car gods.

    Grey interrior, and had the "BMW" brembos. Lots of work needed.. a "rescue" for sure.

    Anyone here claiming it?

    IIR The gaslamp area was were all of the old run down bars and other establishments of "ill repute" were located before they tore them all down and put in condos. I remember a bar that was so old it still had the bar in front to tie your horse too! That was about the time they put in light rail through there. (Don't ask how I know ).

    I was alongside a black 8-series with Dinan 8 badging at the traffic lights on De Anza Blvd turning onto Stevens Creek Blvd in Cupertino, CA yesterday (Aug 1st) at around 2:45 p.m.
    When in doubt, drive flat out!

    Was behind an 850ci with big chrome wheels around the ramp from 66E to 28N approximately 6:20 p.m. Thursday the 2nd.

    I was in my '92 535i, which isn't anything special.

    White BMW 840. Spotted on Great Seneca. MD at about 5:45. Turned left on Quince Orchard. The jerkiness is me trying to swing my dash cam around for a better shot. Anyone here?

    just saw a black 850i in laurel, Rt 198. I think it's the same guy i've seen in the mobil 1 oil change place in rt 198. Honked and gave the thumbs up as I passed him on my 8. James (Coupenut), i think you mentioned you knew this guy?

    Too many
    Don't really know him. I've spoken to him a couple of times, once at the Mobil One place and once at the gas station at Whiskey bottom and Rt. 198. He said that he owns 2 E31s. The black one that we've both seen and I believe a blue one. I've told him about the Washington Metro group and the local chapter of the BMW club.

    Thanks for the mention! Too bad I was in my 4Runner and not in my 8 when I saw you the one time.

    Yes, I've been MIA, this is the first time I've logged on to the forum in quite a while. Been too busy so I haven't really focused on doing anything new to my 8. I still have a long laundry list... HIDs, new headliner, CSI kit...

    I've seen several 8s in and around the LA area during the last few months as well but haven't taken the time to post it here.

    I was walking down my street and I saw what a purple (or dark blue?) 850i. I waved at the driver. Don't think he saw me. I live in the Clarkson area of mississauga. Is that someone here by any chance? If so, nice car
