1979 BMW 635csi Tricolor Euro spec


This post is in our archives. Links in this post have been updated to point to similar cars available to bid on eBay.

Great looking 6 series here. The tricolor scheme looks even better, I think, with silver as the base color rather than the more common white.

This shark has seen a lot of care. The car has 70,000 apparently well loved miles. This euro spec car was brought into the U.S. and includes documentation. The owner has $12,000 in receipts from a 2006 refresh including:

New 205 and 225 Michellin Pilot Sports a/s, New exhaust system, replace fuel sender assembly, replace idle air valve, replace carpet incl rear deck console and kick panels, show ready detail, a/c service/add freon, replace window and a/c switches, windshield washer tank, jets, valve, strainer, seals, drain and refill differential, full brake service incl new calipers and hoses as needed, incl new brake master cylinder and slave cylinder, transmission service, new thermostat, coolant reservoir, new fan clutch and v belts, new hood shocks, adjust valves, flush all new fluids and filters, etc.

Bonus features, outside of the paint job, include Alpina rims and a A.C. Schnitzer badged spoiler. The car has a dog leg manual for extra enjoyment and even includes the cool headlight wipers.

The owner says the car was originally a gift to someone on the Schnitzer team and that the car also did time in the Beaulieu National Car Museum

Great looking car with a timeless design. The paint will add to the umber of looks you get. The ask is $9,000. Its too bad the seller didn’t pull the car out of the garage for a nice profile shot as these cars look great from the side.

    Just to clarify, the starting bid is $9k, the asking price is $14k (am I right in believing that there is no reserve?). And the AC needs fixing, which is odd, considering that the seller states that the ac was serviced in 2006.

    Yes, it is up with no reserve so in this case I consider that opening $9k price the ask. Buy-It-Now price is $14k.

    Silver on black Euro-spec 635CSI is great. But the tri-color paintwork with the Alpina-style pinstripes won’t be for everyone. At $9K, I could easily live with that look.

    Either the someone’s going to get a hell of a deal when they snipe the bid in 31 hours, or the seller will realize he meant to put a reserve in place and pull the auction early.

    I also could live with this for $9k with that kind of mileage and the car’s history. I think it is pretty fairly priced, which is a big rarity for a no reserve auction on eBay. If it sells for $9k the new owner should be happy barring any surprises.

    Auction ended a couple hours early. “This listing was ended by the seller because the item was sold.” Not surprising.
