Coupe Week: 1987 BMW 635CSi

$_4 (1)

If there was one song that summed up the 1980s for me, it was Opportunities by the Pet Shop Boys. “I’ve got the brains, you’ve got the looks…let’s make lots of money.” Economic liberalism was on the move during this decade and as a result, consumers were hungry for vehicles to showcase their new found wealth. German vehicles would quickly become objects of desire, noted for their quality. The Porsche 911 wasn’t a new design by any means, but it would be the standard bearer for sports car excellence. The Mercedes-Benz S-class and SL roadster would be for the folks looking to capture a bit of that old money look and the pinnacle of luxury. Then we have the BMW E24 6 series. What about this coupe, then? I’ve always considered the 6 series the thinking man’s luxury car. It combined performance you’d expect from a Porsche with understated luxury you got in a Mercedes-Benz. It wasn’t the obvious choice, but time has been kind to the E24, as it is steadily becoming more and more popular with collectors. This 635CSi for sale in Vancouver, British Columbia is a US market car with just over 70,000 miles on the clock.

Luxor Beige is a great color for these later E24s, in my opinion, as it matches the subtle nature of these grand touring coupes. The great thing about German cars from this era is that they were very advanced for their day. For the dedicated enthusiast, these can be used on a daily basis with proper care. Equipped with the automatic gearbox, this would make a great machine for those in the urban jungle or for the motorist looking to have something a bit unique for their commute. Carter featured a 6 series roundup last August where we saw a 1986 635CSi 5-speed manual with 146,000 miles sell for $7,700. Given the lower mileage we see here, this one might push towards the $10,000 to $12,000 territory.
