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 nicely maintained, unmodified and affordable final year 1989 635CSi, is sure to be on the short list of European car fans everywhere. With a highly desirable red-on-black color combination and only 68,240 actual miles on the clock, this is a very special, one-owner Bimmer.
A top-of-the-line European grand touring coupe like this gets treated with respect from day one. That's why the factory-correct and original Henna Red retains a nice luster, and the sheet metal retains the precision gaps and laser straight panels that German engineers have prided themselves on for decades. And as you look at the details, it becomes clear that this is a premium coupe for those who like to both collect and drive. The factory alloys have been cared for correctly; the black rubber strips are still dark and pliable, and all the right original pieces are in still place where they're supposed to be. So this premium coupe still wears its BMW propeller badge with pride, which is exactly why it still commands respect on arrival.
BMW makes The Ultimate Driving Machine, and that means an interior that's built precisely around the driver. This all-original interior is in fantastic condition, boasting some of the era's most comfortable leather bucket seats, and they are power adjustable to strike the perfect balance for grand touring comfort. The factory wheel has an airbag (pretty rare for '89) and was engineered to give the driver a clear view at the full gauge package, in particular the 6,000 RPM redline. The dash is free of any cracks or blisters, the middle console houses most of the car's switches, and the automatic gear lever that is exactly where you always want to rest your right hand. And as a premium vehicle, BMW's engineers expertly worked to make sure that everything was informative and luxurious without ever being distracting. The lengthy options list includes the afore mentioned airbag, power windows, power locks, power seats, cruise control, a Sony AM/FM/CD stereo (CD changer is in the trunk), and a power sunroof. The A/C system is still the original R-12 system that blows cool but could probably use a service given it's age.
BMW's famous line of inline-six engines is the bedrock of their premium and sporting reputation. And the 3.5-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. This one-owner car has always been well-maintained and babied its entire life, not to mention drive sparingly for its age, so the motor sparks to attention immediately and runs like a sewing machine. 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 power four-wheel disc brake package. Add in great long distance features like the four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive, power steering, and cruise control, and you have a total package classic that's fun to drive near or far.
Complete with its original window sticker, owner's manual, and great maintenance records, 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!!!
