1980 BMW 6-SeriesThis 1980 BMW 635CSi is a stock European-market E24 with an M90 inline six, dogleg five-speed manual and a factory tan leather interior with Recaro Seats. Imported tothe United States from Germany in Feb 1983 by European Motor Sports Inc, the car has covered 63k miles since new. A recent oil change and safety inspection have been performed. The car has aclean New York title and clean Carfax.
Graphite Metallicpaint is in goodcondition overall, showing a nicegloss with some tiny chips here and there.
Straight, clean body panels fit together well – no accidentrepair ismade by previousowner or myself or the included Carfax report, and damage appears limited to minor dings and a small dent on the top of the passenger quarter panel. Also fitted with Zender Side Skirts.
Slim Euro bumpers include a non-wraparound rear on these earliestE24s, looking straight here over the first-year air dam withattachedfog lights. Aerodynamic lift was said to be substantially reduced over the earlier spoiler-less 6-series.
The interior has worn well, featuringa crack free dash and Tan leather upholstery. Drivers seat shows some wear and patina from age but are all free ofstains,rips or splitswhile theheadliner and visors appear cleanandtight-fitting. Rear headrests are equipped and their plastic housings are also in goodshape.
All dash itemsand gauges in the clean flocked instrument cluster are labeled in German with the exception of the US speedometer installed at import. A steeringwheel from an E21 3-series replaced the originalitem, while the center console is home to an aftermarket stereo, cd, aux... head unit. This is also an A/C Car.
3.5 L paintedon the side of the engine block confirms the car is powered by the3,453cc big-bore, short-stroke M90 inline six used in early uncatalyzed European 635s. Good for approximately215 horsepowerand229 lb-ft in its day, it was revvierthan the M30 versionused in otherE24s.
Shifting is via a Getrag five-speed transmission with the optionaldogleg first gear available only in Euro markets.
The car is riding on Genuine ALPINA Rims with a full size ALPINA spare rim.
Please feel free to ask questions and make offers. Definitely one of the cleanest 635 csi Euro market car around.
