*Good Example
*Comes with MoT
*Good Service History


The 6-Series remains a favourite not only with dedicated BMW enthusiasts but those who appreciate a true latter-day grand tourer. Hailing from the same era as Jaguar's XJ-S and the Porsche 928, the '6' more than amply followed in the wheel tracks of its E9 3.0CSi predecessor, winning loyal followers across the globe. The UK proved a large market and today's classic market rates the model highly and MPH is delighted to offer this fine 1988 automatic-transmission 635CSi model, which comes with very good history. The vendor tells us the engine was replaced with a genuine BMW exchange unit in 2004 (with the engine bill on file) and is said to start and run very well. All other mechanical components are also in very good order. The bodywork is in very good order, showing extremely good panel fit and shut lines, and the light metallic blue paintwork presents extremely well too, as does the glass while the engine bay has been well-maintained. Interior-wise the grey leather seats are very tidy and free of neglect, as is the carpet, while the dashboard and trim are crack- and damage-free. MPH is pleased to offer this fine 635, and while there is a healthy supply of examples available, finding a good one is trickier. Here is a well-presented, well cared-for example with good history. It is sure to appeal to the discerning 1980s grand tourer enthusiast.

With good-condition bodywork and paint, a good interior and genuine BMW replacement engine in 2004, here is a highly tempting example of the bigger-engined 6-series.
