Re: Another 635 CSi on ''The Market''

Nice, but shouldn't the electric seat controls on this Highline car be located on the side of the seat bases adjacent to the door sills?

I thought that only earlier cars had them next to the handbrake......

Re: UK M635CSi #500 fs on eBay

#500 is back up for sale. https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1226426 Looks nice. But I cannot help but wonder if £48k is an ambitious figure for a 153k mile car. It makes the similarly priced #250, with a 100,000 fewer miles, seem a relative bargain, but then that car has remained unsold and on th...

Re: Which M635CSi do you prefer. S2-based or Highline?

When I bought my first M635CSi (an S2) so many years ago, I would frequently lament that I didn’t own the more contemporary and modern bumper treatment of the Highline cars. I longed to replace mine with a later, more “fashionable” model. However when the time did eventually come around to changing ...

Re: UK M635CSi #091

I'm told the car still has the Pine Green cloth interior throughout.

I'm glad to hear that's the case. Personally I think it's a great colour/material combo, and not just because it's rare.

Wonder what happened to that £4k re-trim?

Re: UK M635CSi for sale on ebay- low mileage

I have not seen it for a couple of years now, but when I did so, it was just after the current vendor had bought the car (for a bargain price) following a long period of storage. I felt then the car was an excellent, original, low mileage, unmolested example, needing nothing else than a thorough cle...

Re: First Aid Box Position

From personal experience, an alternative is to keep an eye on German eBay. I’d be surprised if one didn’t pop up sooner or later.

Beyond that, surely someone on here has one they would part with?

Re: Factory Looking Headunits

I have been giving thought to one of these.
How does the illumination of the head unit compare to that of the rest of the dashboard? My concern is that it is too red, and not orange enough.
A night-time picture with everything would be enormously appreciated!

A shadow-line diamond/pearl car with M Technic bodykit really appeals to me (I once owned a very similar car) - I'd love to see this brought back to its former glory.

Re: UK M635CSi #348 for auction 09/11/2019 @ NEC

I might be wrong Pod, but I read the advert as the car having two owners after BMW GB. Either way, I agree the estimate does appear a little low, especially when one considers the numbers being thrown around a few years back, when 348 was identified as being a "star" of the BBC's cringeworthy ripost...

Re: UK M635 CSi #5 for sale on ebay.

If that is indeed chassis number 0760005, then I'm pleased as punch to see that car still around. #5 was a BMW UK press car (originally with the registration number B463HGM) and featured on road test in numerous UK car magazines. On the plus side, it looks to be a largely original car (body-kit, spe...
