Karmann manufactured the early 6-Series BMW's from launch in 1976 before BMW took production in house. The most significant technological upgrade on the E24 range took place in 1982 where after all models were constructed upon the more advanced E28 chassis right through until production ceased in 1989. This 1989 635CSi has the pure elegant lines associated with the earlier cars which accentuate the 'shark-nose' design in the absence of the front skirts and the other exterior evolutions which came with the later generations. At the same time, this model enjoys all of the benefits associated with construction on what was then the brand new E28 platform.
This excellent, rust free, 1988 BMW 635csi Highline was supplied when new by Jacksons Garage in Guernsey C.I. in November 1989. It was sold again by Jacksons Garage but this time in Jersey C.I. where it has been lovingly kept until being imported to the UK in February this year. It has a very good service history with the last service carried out in April 2018, at the same time having a new battery, auxiliary belts, wiper blades, rear drop links and four new Michelin TRX GT tyres fitted, all at a cost of over £2,500. Finished in the classic BMW colour scheme of Alpine White with anthracite interior, this 635csi will be UK registered by the time of the sale and is supplied with an MoT test certificate which expires in April 2019, Jersey registration document, complete handbook pack, file of invoices, all the correct tools including the BMW touch, two complete set of keys and the original Blaupunkt radio/cassette player. The superb condition of this car is verified just looking in the boot and finding the original unused spare wheel. These elegant 1980’s BMW’s are becoming very sought after and it is very difficult to find one in this condition. A true classic!
