Would you sell the 850CSI for a 911 or keep both?

Keep the 850. you love it, its rare and special. Far different cars that I think you will enjoy both when you do get a 911. Far different engines and response/feel.

I am die hard Audi loyal so I know that feeling. 11 of them and I love my R8 (and my previous RS variants of Audi's) waaaay more than my 911 but it is perfect for my needs at the moment no doubt as my daily car. Room for a different brand in my garage though I can tell they will always be German or classic American. My classic cars have me rethinking how I enjoy my time driving. I used to do way more track days and really enjoy that but I am starting to enjoy the slow cruises in my classics just as much. Each car I own at the moment is a unique driving experience and I like them all. I rotate through them during the week.

I've been a BMW guy, including BMWCCA member, for 17 years. That includes two BMW motorcycles and a Z4. I was convinced I was getting an M4 this go around but there was no denying the C2S, even if it was 30% more expensive. I visited BMW Welt in Munich three years ago and I still feel a connection to the brand even though I have zero roundels in my fleet now.

All that said, this isn't wives. You can have more than one love. I wouldn't sell a special car like the CSI if you've got room in your garage and wallet for both. You'll see someone driving one and have regret. You'll remember all the good and forget all the bad (I did notice that in both of your pictures, she's got a jack or lift under her).

The lift was just when I was having one tire repaired and the jack was when I was putting the 18" wheels on
Did a 2700 km Romania tour and got me safe home

I have owned plenty of BMW's and drive one as my daily driver. BMW makes great cars and just when you think it can't get better, you get in a Porsche and you are like, wow! It can be made better. BMW is a mass producer compared to Porsche. They used to make great products but lately they seem to have lost their way. I would not want to own any BMW's post 2006. Too much gadgetry for my liking.
Today's cars are very powerful and handle amazingly when compared to cars from 25yrs back. Lot of people get caught in nostalgia but when you compare cars that are 25yrs apart, the older ones drive like crap.

After three BMWs, I thought I would be a BMW owner for life. Then I started getting the F10 (2010+ 5 series) loaners. What a disappointing experience compared to my E60. No BMWs in my 6 car fleet, none planned. They have gone mass market, and their current products hold little appeal to me. BMW wasn't loyal to it's long time customer base, no need to worry about your loyalty to them. Whatever you do, hold on to your 850, you'll miss it.

Its a shame that BMW has gone the way the went.
I have been a huge fan, but the newer models just dont do it. Even Mercedes is doing better things

I think it would be fair to say many of us here have owned multiple examples of BMW's and P cars.

Go spend some seat time in the 911 that fits within your budget. They both drive so differently.

Then choose.

By all of the pictures you posted of your baby, it's obvious just like the others have pointed out you love your girl. Don't do something you will regret.

Um... like me regretting selling my 27k mile E30 M3 many years ago. Wtf I'm a dumbass.
