Very entertaining and worth a few chuckles

Enjoy

The guy in the passenger seat (I think the owner) is either huge or the car is really small - notice how he has to bend his neck to fit in the car???

Sort of like an i8. Head turner and you think it's 1000hp competing with a Mclaren (and I wish it did) but then you look at the specs and it doesn't match the style of the car at all.

This video is hilariously awesome! Well played. Now I'm wondering what the M2C video will be like in almost...30 years. 30 years! Gawd...I remember when this beast launched...

...I'm old...

I've never found this guy funny...

Anyhow, the 8er's interior always looked incredibly cheap, especially this example without any wood in the cabin.

Has anybody driven this? The steering looks quite loose when he turns the wheel. I suppose people aren't kidding when they say it wasn't meant to be a sports car.

Still love this car. In the 90’s, it had more road and curb presence than anything not named Lamborghini Diablo

Was the steering THAT bad or is something just broken on this example? It may be a slow turd, but my god is it a beautiful turd. Of course the 850CSI is the one to own.

The cars RCR brings onto his channel are never in great shape. The owners look like a bunch of neckbeards and the cars are always beaten up.

I feel like the cars of that era had very high steering ratios. My E30 318is was that incredibly tall.
