It's pretty crazy, but the whole reason I bought my E23 was the movie "Nothing But Trouble" with Chevy Chase, Dan Aykroyd, John Candy, and Demi Moore. I caught it on TV once and fell in love with the gorgeous Black on Black 733i that Chevy Chase's character owns. I immediately decided I had to have one. It took me a over year to find mine; I was actually looking for a 733/735i. It was just dumb luck that I wound up with a 745i. I knew what they were, but didn't think I'd come across one so never considered it as a possibility. That was back in November of '99, so I've now owned it longer than any other car.
Here are some "screencaps", any E23 fan who hasn't seen this should check it out. The rest of the movie is mostly forgettable, but the 733i gets a lot of screen time for the first 20 minutes. It's still one of my favorite movie BMWs of all time.
I think that's a Racing Dynamics bodykit on there, no longer available as far as I know.
They show the speedometer a couple times. If the odometer was correct, it had less than 4,000 miles when they filmed.
Chrome Hammers! Anyone who remembers these is starting to show their age, as I am. Very popular back in the late '80s-early '90s. I wouldn't mind finding a set just to have the option of pimpin' around on them occasionally.
