i would say if you have the money, its definitely worth it. or maybe get one with the dinan twin turbo. either way, it would be bad ass. got any pics of your current 850?

there is a thirty thousand dollar difference between the two? no, its not worth it in that case, considering you can get two (or almost) 850s for that much

The CSi is a much rarer car and has about 340hp, off memory. A mate has one down here in NZ.

If you have been able to live with the maintenance bills of an 850Ci, you shouldn't be surprised with bills from the CSi.
