AMAZING FULL HISTORY
FINANCE EXAMPLE - £5000 DEPOSIT 36 * £1158 MONTHLY PAYMENTS
Here we have an excellent, perfectly cared for example of the M635CSi. This has got to be one of my all time favourite cars to come through us here at OCC. This top of the range, BMW Motorsport developed 6 Series looks absolutely superb, with its deep shine, Royal Blue metallic paintwork. The M635CSi (or M6 as its know in other parts of the world) is BMW’s Motorsport department’s development of the already excellent E24 6 Series. Using the fantastic straight six engine (M88), which is also fitted to the E28 M5. A masterpiece in engineering, producing 286 BHP, the 3.5 litre M88 was BMW’s first 4 valve per cylinder production engine, it benefited from six individual throttle bodies, technology straight from the race track. Many further enhancements were carried out by BMW M Division including uprated suspension / unique manual gearbox / brakes / limited slipp diff etc.
This car is one of the very last batch of E24’s, produced. Chassis number 500 (of 524 RHD M635CSi’s). It was first registered in April 1990. Its one of only 102, top of the range, RHD Highline models, with the upgraded body styling and very luxurious, fully extended leather interiors. These rarely come up for sale, this car has all the nice upgrades.
This car comes with one of the most comprehensive service history I have ever seen. Its always been stored and cared for correctly, but it also been enjoyed, its covered 153,000 miles. Due to being used and the meticulous maintenance history, this example drives and performs as good as any you will find. Its no delicate garage queen, you could jump in and enjoy this car on a trip across Europe now, if the mood takes you.

Bodywork / Wheels / Interior
This M635CSi is in immaculate condition. The car was treated to a full, bare metal, glass out respray around 4 years ago, by a very well respected classic car body shop in London. Well this was obviously performed properly as the car still looks stunning today. There are no noticable dings or dents, no rust, the paintwork has a lovely deep shine. Look closer, look at the normal weak spots on these cars, arches, front wings, sunroof, no rust all solid metal.
The Cream (Natur Option 200) interior on this BMW is also in excellent condition, it really is a testament to how well this example has been looked after. The extended leather on these rare Highline models, continues to the door cards, dash, centre console, even headlining. Only the best quality leather was used, you even get that lovely smell as you get in, that only leather of this quality can produce. Look at the seats, look at the dash, its all soft to the touch, quality leather in fantastic original condition. The deep pile cream carpets are still in excellent condition, protected by a BMW overmats.
The wheels are the original ‘TRX’ alloys fitted to the M635CSi. As you can see the wheels are in excellent shape, tyres all good etc. There is a set of as new E28 M5 alloys, available at extra cost. These wheels are extremely rare (5 stud 16+7.5J, 120PCD ET20 part number 3611 222 5518). These have never been used since being refurbed, so as new, all fitted with new Continental tyres. These offer the owner the chance to have period wheels with modern tyres on the car, but still have the factory wheels for originality.
Engine / Gearbox
The M635CSi comes with the M88 straight six engine. The engine performs perfectly, it sounds fantastic and is one of BMW’s best engine notes when pushed. As you would expect for a car with this service history, all fluids etc are like new.
The Getrag 5 speed manual gearbox fitted to all M635CS’s, is an excellent gearbox. The box on this car feels just right, nice precise gear changes, clutch feels just as it should.
This example comes with an outstanding, fully comprehensive service history. We have all the original manuals, the original, fully stamped service book, a folder of all old MOTs, old tax disks, a folder of service records going all the way back. If you like detailed service history, ownership history, even running costs, this one is for you.
Please see a full breakdown of service visits below.
The M635CSi is one of the best classic cars you could own. This is a rare chance to purchase one of the top of the range, Higline cars, a properly maintained, solid, usable car.
Unlike so many others for sale out there, this M635CSi is ready to be owned and enjoyed now, benefiting from constant use and the right owners who could afford to maintain this car correctly.
It comes MOT’d until May 2019, its ready to go now.
