1988 BMW 635 CSi

One of the most popular weeks we#8217;ve head at GCFSB.com was #8220;Shark Week#8221;, we reviewed one of each iteration of the E24 People love the classic the understated performance, and ability to up miles on the highway, and the relatively low price. They#8217;re all the makings for an classic that is affordable,

With prices of the M models and E30 made on the rise, these are still good value. most enthusiasts lust the M6 and the legendary S38 powerplant, the reality is for most of us, the less complicated and expensive to maintain M30 found in the 635 CSi others is a smarter option. ended in 1989 and these were lightly updated with revised headlights and covers, such as we see on this white 1988 model:

. 3.5 liter inline-6

Transmission . manual

Mileage . 113,455 mi

. Reserve Auction, current bid


The classic #8220;shark#8221; or #8220;sharknose#8221; style, chassis code which is often heralded as the beautiful of all vintage BMWs, had a long production run from until 1989. Unfortunately, the cars for the United States were crippled with reduced power in addition to and bulky padded bumpers up the 1988 model which revised aerodynamic #8220;world#8221; and an engine upgrade that power up to match the European car.

These revised and very post 1988 cars then discontinued the very year in 1989 and virtually all the imported to the US were optioned the Automatic Transmission. This car has the and rarest possible combination, the body style, final engine, Manual Transmission, all factory options, a full history including original and window sticker, we believe car to be in original condition and completely The only non-original parts on the car are authentic BBS wheels, replacing the TRX wheels which are no longer (the TRX specification tires are no in production).

Originally purchased in California by a BMW collector who used it as his before passing it on to another BMW in New Mexico, this car has been in the of hands its whole life new. Of the 47 Alpine White with the Lotus White interior, only 11 of these had manual transmissions. This may be the surviving one, and it is in pristine with only minor which I will note in

Being a Southwestern car, it has no body rust of any kind, the coating is completely intact.

I have a complete album 100 pictures including underbody and all shots of imperfections in this web Photo Album. Listed are some pictures of the car as it is right

Some minor defects in the paint were too difficult for the to pick up and are hard to detect by human eye and shots are not included.

For a this car seems to be very presented, which if you follow is fairly remarkable. The seller the small details that are on the car, and seems to actually what it is, too #8211; a bit of a rarity. As the notes, the later cars are to find with a manual

This car has the extended leather like the M cars, and it looks to be in condition. Also rare for an dealer are all of the records which with the car, making the one to look at seriously. Downside? the 528i spec wheels in fit the Hollywood origins, but not the car.

That said, wheels are a easy fix and generally an individual anyway, and while I#8217;m not a fan of wheels on this car it certainly stop the sale for me.

Values of 6s have been all over the map as of #8211; some M6s pushing plus for nice examples, but 635s failing to sell under $10,000. As the last of the and equipped with a manual with all records and in good this is the most valuable of the models currently, and I would it to be priced between $10,000 $12,000 depending on interest.

I do that this dealer positive feedback for their ad as I really think they the car the way we all like to see it. It#8217;s hard to but in most states around me, car could be registered as an antique and on the weekends and at shows #8211; than purchase an older car has more needs, this be a smart way to have a great and reliable weekender!
