M635 for sale

Postby Ed Lyerly » Tue Dec 13, 2011 2:54 pm

Mileage is a little high, but looks to be original and "all there". 2 biggest concerns would be (1) no maintenance records on timing chain/guide replacement and (2) rust check in the usual places. This one looks to have been well cared for and the buffalo hide interior gives it a nice patina. With a little price negotiation .... could be a nice car at a good price :D

No affiliation on my part ..... just ran across this one and it looked good enough to share.

Just based on the pics that looks to be pretty well sorted.

Looks nice. Some nice buffalo hide there.

I like this part...

Producing an amazing 286bhp, the ?shark-like' profiled M6 24 valve model remains the most desirable BMW ever.

Ed,

Although never had the opportunity of meeting you, from your posts I believe you have very good taste and also are very particular about quality.

Since you have seen the car up close, In your judgement how will you rate the car from 1-10, 10 being show quality/concourse. As a gauge how would you rate your car on the same scale?

Regards,

Hi Abdi,
Thank you for your kind words .... I am flattered :oops:
I actually have not seen this car in person (that is a white M635 in my other post).
This car looks really good in the photos (but you know photos always seem to look better than the real thing). If it is rust free, then the biggest negatives would seem to be the mileage and the $2500 timing chain/tensioner replacement that is 50K overdue (as there are no records to prove it has been done).
Positives are that it appears to be complete and unmolested. I would also like to run a CarFax and see where it has spent it's life up to now. That would tell me how hard to look for the rust in this rust free example :-)

Ed,

Thanks for the feedback. It looks really nice in pictures, but like you said, pictures do not show & tell all. You are right the mileage is a bit too high. Although being an unmolested Euro M6 is very enticing.

How far is it from you? Please let me know if you ever go to see it

It is 500 miles from where I live in North Carolina to Tupelo, Mississippi. I'm trying to wrangle a CarFax to see where it has spent it's 26 years. As you said, an unmolested M635 is very interesting :D

Thanks. Wish you a merry Christmas and a healthy & happy New Year.

May Santa bring us a Euro M6 this year. (Hey we can still wish!)

This raises a question for me. From a performance standpoint is an 85 Euro M635 more desirable than a domestic (US) 88M6?

I know the question is subjective.

The euro M635 ('84-'86) has 288 HP vrs 256 HP for the USA M6 ('87-'89). The USA cars also have extra weight (est 200 lbs or so) because of the heavier safety bumpers and door beams, rear AC unit, and the catalytic converter that the euro cars usually do not have.
The M635 was considered a pretty fast car back in the mid 80's. It is, however, no match for the M3's and M5's of today.

Hi,

Price is not too much if the car has no rust and the rest is in good condition.
It has rare BBS RS TRX wheels

Mine has 240.000 kms, 149.000 miles. Same interior, no sunroof.
It has been expertised at 20.000$

If I was in US I would go for it !

I agree ..... if there is no rust. Just needs to be checked carefully by someone who knows where to look.
Carfax attached shows where it has lived .... 10 years and 100K in NJ does not guarantee rust, but it means do a very careful inspection for it :D

Posting on this car again ...... because it has had a significant price drop.
$13,500 originally ...... now $9,500.
Worth a good look if you are in the market for one of these rare cars :D

Looks like rust in at least 3/4 wheel arches from the dealer pics. Hard to tell for sure.

Yes, as stated earlier in this thread ..... a prospective buyer should inspect the car for rust (or pay for a knowledgable independent inspection). The price reduction was what I was pointing out.
