Re: M6 Roadtrip Down California Hwy 1 - Suggestions?

I have lived in Monterey since 1971 and know the area very well. If you plan to spend a couple of days here, there is plenty to do. Paul is right about the drive down Coast Highway 1. As the time gets closer, let us know about your schedule. This is somewhat reminiscent of 2006 when I found a M6 in ...

Re: Pacific Sharkfest 2018 pix

California vehicle code does require a front license plate. When I bought my M6 about 12 years ago, it had no front plate. I purchased the correct BMW part and mounted a front plate. I agree the cars look much nicer without a front plate. My reasoning is that I don't want to give the police any excu...

2018 Pacific Sharkfest has happened

Great gathering of Sharks in Bodega Bay and the surrounding area. Three organized drives over some of the best twisties on the California coast. Perfect weather, and no traffic issues. Visits to Fort Ross, the schoolhouse on Taylor Street used in a scene from "The Birds", lunch in Nicasio, and dinne...

Re: New Owner 1985 635CSI

Wow! What a difference from the 635CSi that obviously needed quite a bit of work. This begs the question about your new M6.

Curious about miles, the car's history if known, and general condition. I think the seller that cancelled on you did you a huge favor.

Count me in too. Will be there Friday for the Big Trees Tour.

Leaving the M6 at home, since my 635 has a smoother ride for us. Should be a great time!

Re: Seeking advice: 1983 633csi

Price sounds a bit steep for this car since it needs some attention in quite a few areas to get it back to 100% working.

I would hold out for a '85 to '89 635CSi with no major issues. Might need to look out of state for it, but I think you will find that worthwhile.

Happy hunting,

Steve

Re: License plate area covers

I have the one that I took off my '88 M6. Since CA requires a front plate, my reasoning was that I did not want any encounters with the police unless is was my idea. I can either send it to you, or hand it over at the PSF in September. A photo of it is on the 2009 BMW Calendar on the December page. ...

Re: Are Values Up?

By the VIN, it is a 5-speed 635CSi. People that "M" badge non-M cars, or do a de-badge tells me something.

On the positive side, I have noticed the prices of M6s steadily climb upward lately.

For some reason BMW used original fuel lines having a braided fabric reinforcing. I have had them all fail by seeping gas on both of my 6-series cars, a 5-series E28, and BMW motorcycles. If you can see any braided lines, they all must be replaced. You will also need about 8 new worm-drive clamps. I...
