Superior solidity, made in Munich
The interior of this 635 CSi exudes solidity: Beige leather seats, dashboard in black and two-tone door panels. It also features a sunroof, trip computer, air conditioning and electrically adjustable seats and much more.
The outer and technical appearance is in accordance with the fairly high mileage; partly unprofessional repainting and scratches and other visual impairments are admittedly there. The original rims are in reasonable condition. Cracks above the glove box and the surrounds of the door opener tarnish the image a little. Undercarriage, clutch and brakes, among other things, need to be done.
Overall an attractive classic with potential, which can also get the sought-after H-admission this year. Complete TÜV approval for Germany remains to be done.
Upon its presentation, the design anticipated the styling of the future 7 Series (E23). Inside, there is the driver-related cockpit – a 70s novelty at BMW – with the center console turned slightly towards the driver. Otherwise, the upper-class coupe boasts lush luxury, since the 6 Series was designed for a comfortable ride. And that is not at all contrary to a sporting performance, least of all with the more powerful engines of the 635 CSI.
The 6 Series has the reputation of easy maintenance, and its engines are said to be virtually indestructible. For this reason, our BMW is well placed for a second spring as a classic that is fit for everyday use.
