635CSi 1988

Title Status --
Exterior Color Lachssilber Metalli
Interior Color Gray


The first-generation BMW 6-Series is that perfect grand touring machine that combines modern driving appeal with a growing collector car status. So this 1988 BMW 635CSi is an affordable way to get a loaded coupe that you'll love driving today and planning all its future potential.

A top-of-the-line European grand touring coupe like this gets treated with respect from day one. That's why the sheet metal retains its precision gaps. So you really get that attractive shark-like nose and race-inspired front splitter that puts an aggressive face forward. The factory-correct Lachssilber Metallic paint also appears to be the original factory application. It's showing the age of a nearly 35-year-old application. The value price on this coupe makes it easy to invest in a professional detailing or respray if you so choose, but it's nice to have the option of what you can do with originality. This does have a few upgrades. The most noticeable is the set of 18-inch BBS RS-style wheels that are the perfect period-correct way to showcase this ultra-premium coupe. There is an L6 badge on the rear because this is a luxury 6-Series with most of the L6 features. But since that was only a 1987 feature, it seems this one just likes to remind everyone of how loaded it is.

BMW makes The Ultimate Driving Machine, and that means an interior built around you. And just like the exterior, the idea here is a clean and complete setup that has the look of a car that's meant to be driven. This interior boasts some of the era's most comfortable bucket seats, and the driver's power adjusts to strike the perfect balance for grand touring comfort. The sports steering wheel has a factory airbag (a true rarity for a car from 1988) and it's on a tilt column to give you a clear view of the crisp VDO gauges. And as a premium vehicle, BMW's engineers expertly worked to make sure that it was luxurious without being distracting. You are always just a short reach away from features like cold-blowing air conditioning, power windows, an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo w/aux input, and a power sunroof.

BMW's famous line of inline-six engines is the bedrock of their premium and sporting reputation. And the 3.4-liter motor was the largest they offered in the first-generation 6-Series. With its fuel-injected power, the 635CSi has the reputation of providing the perfect balance of refinement and performance. But this superior status doesn't just come from the motor. The fully-independent suspension has been engineered to be one of the best of the era, and grip is always in hand with the four-wheel disc brakes featuring ABS. Add in great long-distance features like the power steering and four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive, and you have a total package classic that's fun to drive near or far.

We bet you never knew a status symbol like this could be so affordable. But you're not the only one who desires the best from BMW, so don't miss out. Call today!!!
