But because this was 23 years ago and things have a tendency to decrease in value, we did a quick check online and, low and behold, you can buy an 840Ci today for less than $15,000. Spend a couple grand more and you can snag one with less than 100,000 miles, which is still a pretty solid deal. Of course we’re talking about an old BMW here, and let’s just say there’s likely to be some mechanical issues that will have to be dealt with. Unfortunately, this likely won’t be cheap. On the other hand, you’d have yourself an original 8 Series, without question one of the coolest cars BMW has ever built. Heck, it even came with its own cell phone, though it was not cordless. Ah, the 90s. We miss it.
