The E24 BMW 6 series is one of those classic BMWs that make me yearn for the days when the Ultimate Driving Machine was indeed the Ultimate Driving Machine. No i-Drive, no electronic power steering, no stability or traction control interference. Just pure, unadulterated driving pleasure. At the end of its production run, for one year only, BMW produced a limited run luxury version, called the L6. Essentially a 635CSi, this special model had almost every interior surface covered in leather, including the dashboard, console and headliner. As a result, it was an absolute upkeep nightmare and examples that come up for sale often have interiors looking way past their prime.
Here is a rather well preserved example for sale in Philadelphia.
L6 Package and All Leather Package. The all-leather option means that knee panel beneath the dashboard, glove compartment, driver stowage box, door trims, rear side panels, sun visors, roof lining, A and B pillars, grab handles, even the instrument panel is covered by the same top-quality leather as the seats have.! LOADED with Premium Sound! Power everything. Power Seats, Heated seats, Memory seats with Lumbar support! A real luxury sedan the ultimate BMW driving machine! The most rare and sought after color combination!
+The car has been inspected by our mechanic and was found in excellent condition!
You are looking at an exceptionally well kept, great looking sport inline 6 cylinder luxury automobile, one of the finest series that BMW makes. This car says a lot about its owner, and has been renowned in the world as a symbol of prestige and class, as well as having great performance. It’s been very well kept and serviced; in fact it runs almost like a new car. Itâ€™s a great Classic color for this model and combined with the gray leather interior adds lot of luxury appeal to it. It also has the Premium Sound & comfort packages.
Judging by the miles and the condition of the car, it has been mostly used on the highway and it has also been garage kept. A never-smoked-in beauty that looks great and smells clean.
The engine is an exceptional inline 6, one of the most powerful in the segment. Runs strong and smooth provides the power you have come to expect from a BMW. The transmission has the BMW mark on it as well and shifts like on a new car, no skips or slips on shifts. The engine compartment is clean, and free of any leaks.
No electrical problems were found! AC blows ice-cold and the heater is hot. As you can judge yourself from the pictures, the interior is clean. The seats are 16 way adjustable including lumbar support for both driver and passenger. Extra comfort comes from heated seats on both front seats, and extensive lumbar support for the drivers and passengers seat. The power locks, windows, seats and moon roof (and all the other electrical features) all work and are in excellent condition, and it is also one of the first models that came with projector lights, that are still missing from most modern cars.
The vehicle comes with the original BMW set of tools is intact, 12 speaker sound system. Not many of those 635 model BMWs were made for the US, this is your chance to own a truly unique sport luxurious sedan painted in a classic gray that stands out.
While this is certainly a nice example of an L6, almost $16,000 for a non-M6 E24 is a bit over the top. The high retail over at NADA.com is about $9,000, and I would wager to say anything a shade over $10,000 would be a good sum for a car in this condition and mileage. Still, it is nice to see an L6 out there that hasn’t been beat into the ground and it’s interior looking like a team of felines have had at it for a few years.
