1985 BMW M635CSi

In Paul’s recent M6 Roundup he celebrated the many different colors that the M6 came in, including a rare Bronzit example. It’s one of the many reasons I prefer the M6 over the M5. The second reason is the particular look of the updated 88 examples; with slimmed down bumpers, they look a bit closer in my mind to the original design than the other U.S. spec cars. Of course, in an ideal world I’d want a clean Euro example – with small bumpers, the right motor and perhaps an even more rare color combination, such as this Alpine White with Buffalo hide leather 1985:

Truth be told, though I get the rarity aspect of the M-Tech pieces I don’t think they’re particularly attractive on the E24. They make the design a bit fussy and over-thought; I’d prefer the car without them. I do, however, really like the color combination and the somewhat unusual addition of the 540i Sport alloys was a good choice for both tires and look. They mimic some of the Alpina turbine designs but are much more approachable in price. This car had an engine rebuild that potentially saves the future owner some money – provided it was done properly. These aren’t cheap motors to work on, so I’d make sure that motor was checked out before purchasing. Other items such as the H&R suspension and B&B exhaust are pretty common additions and generally welcome – but also fairly easily reversible into stock configuration. But this car isn’t likely to be a show queen anytime soon; what it does look like is a nice quality driver that can be enjoyed for less money than some other classic BMWs.

  1. That’s a nice specimen …..can truly be called a vintage BMW ……Buffalo Hide sports seats are über cool..usually just see them in the 7 series non sport seats…would totally love to drive it for a weekend & test it limits someplace scenic….

  2. looks to be a nice example….but I’ve learned that only PPI’s will bear anything out…
    that said I’d lose the Zender kit and BB exhaust….but that M88 is a mechanical gem!

  3. Let me take this opportunity to celebrate Germany winning the World Cup today !!!!
    It’s been stressful this last month… but the 4th World Cup has been achieved !!!

  4. Agree this appears to be a very nice M635 with original paint, crack free dash and recent engine rebuild. Looks likes the only cosmetic need is faded seats which a redye will easily fix. I am thinking this is a $20k plus example, although it is on ebay so maybe someone will get a deal.

  5. I own 2 anthracite 1986 M635’s, a running parts car and the identical car (buffalo) running on the street.
    I checked this car out…It’s the best looking M635 I have seen in a long time, on the lift, NO rust anywhere. 17×8&9 540 rims, and original paint with few flaws. Engine rebuild is the good news if done properly. Mechanical sport seats instead of electric Recaro’s in my other two cars. But this car has legs and brakes and the Borla exhaust sounds just right.
    How many rust-free, engine rebuilt, most maintenance nicely done, original paint M cars do you expect to find?
    Rare find, and Alpine White, car is not a leaker.
    So I agree, if sorted out this is a $20+k car, but it has not been driven in past few years.

    What do you think it is worth? Engine rebuild, rims, no rust, original paint, are all pluses. Seat re-dye and repair a minor –
