1986 BMW 635 Csi Auto


  • Highly original in great colour scheme
  • Very low car with full service history 
  • Very good condition with long MOT 
  • Great period features including car phone 
  • Extensive history file and just 6 owners from new 

The Appeal 

With crisp ‘sharknose’ styling and sweet revving straight six engines, the E24 really was the coupe to trounce all other 80s coupes. A facelift in 1982 only enhanced its appeal, updating the aesthetics and adding more luxury. This gorgeous 1986 car is that rare find: a highly origjnal, sumptuously specified 635CSI with low miles and full service history.  There is even a long, advisory-free MOT. Whether you’re here for the period colour combination, the big steel sunroof or the Vodafone car phone, this is surely a treat for any enthusiast.
