This BMW 635 CSi coupé is a US import with an unwarranted mileage of 161,132 mls which was, according to the title, in the same ownership for the past 14 years. The high-torque straight-6 cylinder with the BMW-typical, beefy sound delivers 135 kW (185 hp) from 3,5 litres of displacement. In this case it is connected to a manual 5-speed gear box.
The rims and mirrors go very nicely with the deep black paintwork of the car. The paint has several small spots which have already been patched up and some which are still in need of repair.
The full leather interior likewise keeps to black, with electrically adjustable seats, an M-design gear knob and door panels which make a nearly new impression. The dashboard has become cracked due to intense UV radiation.
Like most 6 series, this one has a rich equipment, which includes air conditioning, trip computer, power windows and an electric steel sunroof.
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 coupé 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, this BMW is well placed for a second spring as a classic that is fit for everyday use.
