1984 BMW 6-Series e24 M635csi Classic European Collector Shark Model

1984 BMW M635csi
April 3, 1984 production build
VIN: WBAEE310201050106
Paint: Graphite Metallic (087)

Mileage: 141K (w/greater than $9K of work within the last few years)

The car is clean and in good condition. It’s a solid higher end driver that can be taken further to the next level if desired.


The car has a full folder of documentation-history since importation. The car was imported into the US via the port of Jamaica, NY on September 18th 1984. The original owner brought the car to San Francisco who owned the car up to February 1999. The 2nd owner brought the car back to Connecticut who owned the car for about two years and it was purchased in August 2001 by a U.S. Air Force Serviceman (Bolling AFB) in Washington DC/Virginia. The AF serviceman moved to Texas in 2003 and owned until 2006. Prior owner in Iowa purchased the car out of Texas who owned the car to date in which I purchased. I purchased the car as part of a two car arrangement and I already have a beautiful M635csi which is why I am selling . Given this, I never intended to keep the car for the long term. I have limited knowledge of the car (yet full documentation and all the maintenance and mileage over the lifespan). I did a few things to the car to refresh given the PO did not drive much and it needed a few updates/new parts in which I have listed below.
Note: there is no CA BAR sticker on car in any of the known places, yet clearly it has lived in SF Bay Area. I did not look into further so they may be a chance it can be registered in CA. Currently, the car is not registered and I do not drive given this (however I keep it healthy). Also, a Car Fax report contains an error in mileage stated due to someone that incorrectly/mistakenly logged. Paperwork will show/prove the mileage history and maintenance.


• Paint- Color is Graphite Metallic and is in good condition. Minor scratches/scuffs with areas of touch up. It presents very well as you can see in the photos.
