Really looking to get out of my 2006 E90 and into a 840/850. I could sure use some help with a few questions, and appreciate all the input. 1.) Size... I am 6'4" and roughly 295-315lbs. While I fit comfortably in my E90, I would like to know the E31 is going to offer the same type of headroom/legroom. According to the specs, I should be in the clear. Again, just verifying. The closest one to my location (Oklahoma) is 400+ miles away. Therefore, it's kind of tough to go "check it out". 2.) 840 or 850?? I have read forums and reports pertaining to both. This vehicle is going to be my daily driver. While I would prefer to own the V12, it seems the "safer" bet is the V8. There are numerous YouTube videos showing both stock & modified versions of both engines. I really do like the V12 sound! 3.) Maintenance... By the time I make this purchase, I will be prepared to put "some" money into the car if the repairs are basic (i.e. Brakes, Rotors, etc...). There is a shop nearby that has worked on these, as well as a dealership that works on 1-2 every so often. There just are not that many around. Any suggestions on finding a reputable mechanic in a town other than my own to do an inspection where the car to be purchased is located? How do I know I'm being done right? 4.) Longevity... Obviously, the newest model I can find would already be 17 years old (1997). Is this vehicle, with all of it's stunning looks, going to be something that will run for another 10+ years with the appropriate maintenance? Thank you in advance to any opinions/comments shared!
