Happy Oktoberfest: 1985 BMW 635 CSI Euro

Oktoberfest starts on the 21st of September and we’re gonna celebrate the Bavarian festival of Beer and Fun by featuring some Bavarian classics. First up is this “mechanic owned” BMW 6-series from the e24 generation…and I’ve got to say there are some pluses and minuses from buying a car that is/was owned by a mechanic.  Typically mechanics will do the needed difficult maintenance items (rebuilding the transmission, for instance) but will often defer maintenance that can be “driven around”. Items like vibrating under braking might cause you to take to your mechanic for new wheel bearings, but that same mechanic knows that braking hard at the beginning of slowing will make the rotors take over some of the job of those worn out bearings…so I’m not sure if buying from a mechanic is a good or a bad thing.  But this E24 is certainly at the bottom of its deprecation curve and we will all be screaming about how over priced the market is in a few years.  Find this 1985 BMW 635 CSI Euro here on eBay bidding for $5000 in Eustis, FL with 2 days to go.

From the seller:

1985 BMW 635 Euro 5 speed in good running condition. I am a bmw mechanic and have owned this car for about 5 years. These cars are getting harder to find. The upgrades that have been done are: big brake upgrade,(850 front calipers and rotors. Steel braided brake lines, short shift kit, keyless entry with push button start, big bore throttle body, upgraded injectors, optima battery, stereo system with amp in trunk,Bluetooth, USB port, New Tires, Last but not least a FACTORY WINDSHIELD WITH NEW CHROME AND GASKET. ($2000.00) from BMW. Things that need work. The A/C Compressor clutch, interior parts.(glove box, brake console) these were taken out of the car because I was changing the interior to black. I lost them in a storage fire. But I have a line on them on the web. If you have any questions please I will be happy answer anything you need to know. Thanks for looking and happy bidding…
