    Default Would you sell the E31 850CSi for a 964 911 or keep both?

    Hi there guys. Since I have always been a huge 911 fan I am thinking about getting one. . The reason I ask I am afraid I would miss the BMW. My heart has been always beating for the Porsche but I have never owned one.
    Also would would you say Porsche is better than BMW?
    There is one thing that I have been thinking.
    I have BMW e31 850 "CSI" as I had all moved from a crashed CSI into my 850 and I love it. I have put actually crazy heart into and and a lot of love At the moment I am having mixed feelings and some might say afraid of owning 2 cars.
    What would you do? Give me good arguments
    Sell the BMW and get the 911 964
    Wait and just keep the BMW and get a 911 to the collection?
    A friend of mine said that when I would get the 911 I would just forget about the BMW.
    Another friend that actually owns both said to own them both.
    So What would you do?



    Here is my e31.







    One from the Transfagarasan in Romania

    The E31 is and will be more unique over time. If that has value to you, keep it.

    Do a phased approach. If you are able to, buy the 911 first and see how you feel between the two. Then after some time you will know your answer

    A large portion of these recreations are mind testing. For instance in irate in the event that you haven't played any of these recreations, you should play once. https://www.linkandthink.org/sites-l...-alternatives/

    Is it a problem for you to keep both?

    If I were you I would buy the 911 if it is your dream.

    Owning both will give you the best point of view to decide what to do.

    a 964 is a 964

    Just ordered some bucket seats for it.
    The lighter it gets the more of a monster the 410 hp pull that I have with the manual transmission.

    Here is what I would do:

    Option 1: I have the money for both - I buy the 964. If I love it and I can keep them both than its a nobrainer. If I can't I would know my feeling and pick one and sell the other.

    Option 2: I don't have the money for both - I keep the 8. If you do not feel ready to sell it, you are not ready. It would be sad to sell something you love so much without even knowing if you would love the next thing. Keep in mind the dreams we have are based on our imagination and sometimes they are not what we expect and turn out to be a disapointment. So without ever owning a 964 you may play yourself if you sell the 8 before.

    An 850CSI is an absolute masterpiece of a car, if it was a just an 840 auto (which I also love by the way) then I could see why you would maybe want to sell up, but that big V12 and manual gearbox, id take that car to the grave with me lol

    That's a hard question. They're both beautiful cars.
