    There were 85 units of the US-spec 850CiA (M73 with 5-spd auto) produced in 1997 - of a total 363 units built.
    This would be one of them.

    Check your VIN tag on the door for the model designation... A is for automatic.... But looks like you've done a Getrag 460g swap... You might have to scratch off the A on your tag LOL

    CI-6 maybe? No that would imply 6-cyl, and I'm already 4 short ;-)

    As mentioned by Joe above, this seller has been discussed before, and my recollection was that his info wasn't always quite right (and the cars weren't in that great shape, based on someone who had actually looked at them). The reason I say "not so sure" is that the VIN on his '97' is CD05008, and with a production date of 12/94. My 1996 M73 850Ci(A) is #CD05058 -- fifty cars later in sequence, and mine was produced 9/95. So I'm thinking that his '97 is really a '95.

    Of course, that still makes it a fairly rare animal, and the M73 850 with its higher torque (and hp) is (in my opinion) more reliable and a blast to drive. Specs put it as only 0.3 sec slower 0-62 (0-100 kph) than a CSi. Of course, it doesn't have the cachet of a CSi, but it's the one I would choose second. Oxford green over silver gray isn't bad either (lol).

    I don't know if his asking price is high, low, or fair (although I'd like it to be low -- lol). There aren't a lot of M73 850Ci's that come up for sale, so it's harder to gauge the market price on these than on just about any other variant.

    91 Dinan860 & 91 850 6sp
    That car belongs to a car dealer. He lists it as "inventory" for financial reasons, the sale ad allows him to continue that practice. While someday soon, 250k will be common, he has had that ad up for years

    High mileage and everybody's favourite colour:

    10K Euro bid with 10 days left. Gives a good indicator where the bottom of the market is on valuations.

    Hmmm that Spanish Calypso is interesting in that it has the retrofit airbag sport steering wheel (all airbag electronics are self-contained in the wheel itself). I have that wheel too, but I can't figure out how to install it on my '95 840ci.

    1994 BMW 850 CSi #27
    That's a bullshit craigslist ad. I've called that guy several times and he always gives me the runaround. He has several cars listed like that. Harold is right about him. He has no intentions of selling any of them He's a God Damn hoarder. In Atlanta with all that humidity and the cars sitting outside, who knows hoe much rust there is on them now.
