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 whereafter 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.
Originally registered on 1st August 1988 the vendor has owned this BMW since 1993 although he did sell the car to a relative in 2008 before buying it back a year later. The condition of this 635 CSi defies the mileage; it has been exceedingly well looked after and presents in very good order throughout. A full service history accompanies this car which also benefits from having a genuine factory replacement engine fitted in 2004 with the mileage reading 186,104 at that stage. The paintwork was also refreshed in 2004 and still presents excellently today. Finished in light blue metallic with grey leather seats, this super stylish 80’s coupé will attract admiring glances wherever she appears. Supplied with a UK V5C registration document together with an MoT test certificate valid until April 2022, viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate how well cared for this car has been by the enthusiastic and conscientious owner.
