Clean Carfax & AutoCheck History Reports
"If there is one model in the history of BMW M that represents its
most significant era, it is the BMW M635CSi. Like no other BMW M
model before it, it embodied the ultimate symbiosis of luxury and
high-performance. Considered avant-garde back then, today its
typical M characteristics make it a sought-after classic." -BMW
AN EIGHTIES ICON. Descending from a long line of BMW sports coupes,
the E24-generation M635CSi was first introduced in 1984. It boasted
a refined version of the M1's 3.5-litre 24-valve six-cylinder
engine capable of producing 286 bhp and was mated to a five-speed
gearbox. Accordingly, the E24's brakes, suspension and weight
distribution were all altered to adjust for the increase in power,
and a limited-slip differential was also fitted. Top speed was
quoted as being in excess of 250 km/h, and the M635CSi could sprint
to 100 km/h from a standstill in roughly six seconds.
Dubbing it 'Sharknose' and 'Bayern-Express', fans were quick to
give the BMW M635CSi creative yet fitting nicknames. Then as now,
it is regarded as the icon of the BMW E24 series. On the outside,
the BMW 635CSi was instantly recognizable thanks to the special
decorative stripes on its flanks, new spoilers at the front and
rear and BBS wheels with a cross-spoke design.
1050626 was completed on September 4, 1984 and purchased "used"
with 100km, on September 27th by Jack Miller of famed Jack's Auto &
Aero (BMW specialist), who immediately commissioned importation to
the U.S. The BMW would arrive Stateside in December of that year,
documented by original Bill of Sale and purchase paperwork, along
with its German Vehicle Registration, all importation slips,
receipts, and records. By Summer of 1985, the M635 had been
federalized, along with a release of bond from the EPA. The CSi
would remain under the Miller family's care and ownership for the
following 35+ years, with all record of its journey from
Huttenberg, Germany to Bainbridge, Pennsylvania.
Today, the M6 presents exceptionally well and thoughtfully
maintained from lifelong enthusiast ownership. With 39,600 recorded
miles, the car retains a large portion of original paintwork,
upholstery, trim and more. Under the care of expert BMW tuners,
naturally the M635 would receive tasteful enhancements to further
improve the vehicle's performance. These include 17" BBS RC wheels
with 235/45ZR17 Continental tires, front strut brace, F/R sway
bars, Bilstein shocks, Air-Fuel tuner, and a full-stainless
Supersprint exhaust system - all reversible if need be.
The exterior displays glossy paintwork, straight body and excellent
gaps, complimented with original BMW-etched side and rear glass.
Spoilers, fender flares, and decorative stripes complete the
package. The cabin appears quite original overall, with beautifully
mellowed anthracite Buffalo leather throughout. Same for supple
leather and plastic trim. A newer Pioneer CD player is fitted, and
to be noted, this M6 was delivered new without a radio. A portable
emergency light resides in the glovebox, as does a digital air/fuel
meter and small equalizer.
Both front and rear compartments exhibit original coatings,
finishes, plaques and decals in a highly detailed and tidy display.
Its original numbers-matching engine number 41803500 is fitted. The
luggage compartment is equipped with a complete tool kit, jack
chock, tire iron, BBS hubcap wrench and spare tire assembly. An
M635CSi decal is adhered to the rear lid. Likewise, the
undercarriage is notably solid, clean, and reflects that of a
cherished garaged vehicle.
Drivability is strong, with robust performance these models are
famed for. Servicing records from 2016-Present record recent upkeep
and upgrades, such as the suspension enhancements and freshening -
all performed by lifelong caregiver Jack's Auto & Aero. A Fall
inspection and service included a new battery and all-four new ABS
sensors - a common problematic part and often neglected repair due
to a scarcity of OEM supplies. The car displays no warning
In addition to the aforementioned records and equipment, 1050626
comes with 4 original keys, an original Owner's Handbook, German
M635CSi Supplement, and BMW Classic Certificate. A modern classic
and legendary Bavarian supercar of the 1980's, this BMW M635CSi
offers boundless opportunity - from single-family, expert ownership
for casual display or spirited sport touring. Now available for
