15k: Red Rumble:1988 BMW M6 E24

 The BMW 6-series has only been available for 3 generations, first the E24 from 1976-1989, later the E63 from 2003-2010 and finally the F12 2011-present.  The 6-series to get has always been the M6 version, but if you want one with a clutch pedal, you’ll need to get a classic…which is fine with us because they are also the least expensive.  Find this 1988 BMW M6 E24 offered for $16,000 in Novato, CA via craigslist.  Tip from Kaibeezy.

The North American E24 generation M6 was known as the M635i in other parts of the world, but shared engine and transmissions with the E28 generation M5 for each region.   Of course, the US market didn’t get the hottest engine and used some catalyst equipped lump, but that hasn’t stopped it from becoming a cool classic luxury coupe.

Under the hood is BMW’s S38B35 inline-6, the same individual throttle body equipped DOHC straight-6 that powers the E28 M5, and it puts out 256 horsepower and 243 ft-lbs of torque.  The M6 was a quick car for the era and hit 60 mph from a standstill in around 6 seconds.

This seller describes the car as a two owner, well maintained classic and says it has been garage kept.  If it looks is nice in person as it does in the pictures, it would make a nice modern classic.
