Shark Week: 1986 BMW 635CSi

Screen Shot 2013-08-05 at 8.10.31 PM

As we go through Shark Week seeing the many iterations of BMW’s amazing real 6-series (no whales masquerading with Shark nametags this week), the mere scope of models and years demonstrates the importance of the E24. The base 628 and the howling M635 represent the poles of performance, but when I think 6-series, the first number that comes to mind is the non-M 635. Produced for all but 2 of the E24’s 14 years, its (actually 3.4L) M30 put out a healthy 218hp to back up the business-shark aesthetic. Today’s example has covered just 119k miles and regrettably comes with an automatic, but it epitomizes the quiet aggression of the Shark in its sharp silver. A few small flaws are overshadowed by the nice interior and mechanicals that come with lower mileage.

This is a 1986 BMW 635csi with 118,877 miles on the odometer. The car has been painted a very nice silver metallic and except for one flaw on the hood, is in excellent condition. The exterior is complemented by a light tan leather interior that is also in very good condition.

This 1986 BMW 635csi has been looked after over the years. It does not look its age and in fact is one of the most attractive and enduring designs ever offered by BMW. In addition, the car has been well maintained mechanically; the last owner had receipts for $7,000 plus dollars invested in the last year or so which included a complete rebuild of the transmission. All work was done by certified dealer professionals.

This car has a sunroof, PS, PB, Power Seats, AC, PW, and was fully equipped for a car of its time. If you love this car as much as we do, this will make an excellent investment. Don’t let the chance to own it pass you by.

The automatic and few flaws (a couple of paint imperfections, common cracked dash) could help this E24 stay very affordable. All told, if three pedals are too many and you’re looking to land a Shark, you could do a lot worse. It should stay well within 5-figures and have plenty of classy, comfortable and quick miles left.
