The E24 6 series was produced from 1976-1989 and was the replacement for the CS and CSL E9 coupes. Like the E9 coupes, the early bodies of the 6 were manufactured by Karmann until production was moved in-house by BMW. It was the proven E12 5 series that provided the chassis and much of the mechanicals for the E24. Dubbed the ‘Bavarian Ferrari’ the 6 series was a high end two door luxury sports coupe. The 628 model was produced until 1987 and was a budget model for the European market. The 633 Csi featured the first generation of DME and ABS brakes were available as an option. The following year, the 635 CSi received the same DME as the 633 Csi.
The main update in 1982 was the entire reworking of the body which included a new front and rear end, which achieved a lighter and stronger vehicle. ABS brakes were now standard in all E24 models. A new 3430 cc engine was placed in the 635 CSi along with new engine management, DME II.
This super stylish BMW was first registered in the summer of 1985, finished in Polar White with Pearl Beige leather sports seats and many other options as you would expect in a car of this calibre and era, such as air conditioning, on board computer, cruise control and ABS braking.
In more recent years the BMW has benefited from much attention, with investment to the mechanics, new tyres, an overhaul to the air conditioning and a cosmetic refresh. Showing a very sensible 127,000 kilometres recorded, this is a well sorted example of one of BMW’s best modern GT cars.
