The unmistakable and timeless styling of this last inline BMW 635CSi Highline is truly breathtaking. This elegant example is finished in incredibly rare Luxor Beige, (Code 219), and the paintwork boasts a glossy uniform shine. All exterior trim, glass and lights remain in excellent order aside from a tiny ding to one panel and the plastic colour coded trim to the front bumper has lifted slightly seen upon close scrutiny. The flared wings and spoilers are damage free and a small mark to the rear bumper has been touched in. Sheer driving pleasure and the epitome of first class automotive engineering, beautifully preserved in this example.
Those fortunate enough to experience the Highline finish will understand why this car is so special. Exquisite Natural leather upholstery, (Code 7200), and trim extends from the roof lining at the top to the knee panel beneath the dashboard and everything in between. Craftsmanship can be seen as the leather upholstery is sewn and fitted largely by hand even to the glove compartment and instrument panel which still looks amazing today owing to the very best leather being selected by BMW and enthusiast care. The deep velour carpeting has been protected by genuine colour coded carpet mats from new and the boot area is spotlessly clean. The warning triangle, first-aid kit and boot-lid mounted tool kit with spare bulbs and fuses are all present. All electrical equipment functions including the fully electric and memory optional sports seats with variable thigh support. A functioning in car phone and Sony 10 disc auto-changer has been professionally installed. Almost beyond comparison.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The advanced technically sophisticated 6-cylinder 3430cc inline power unit produces 220bhp and is enough to propel the car from 0-60mph in 8.4 seconds and on to a top speed of 140mph. Silky-smooth refinement thanks to a crankshaft running in 7 bearings and balanced by 12 counterweights is controlled by third-generation Digital Motor Electronics receiving information from more than 30 sensors and interfaces for spontaneous power. The engine bay is an absolute delight in its incredible detailed presentation with all factory plates and stickers confirming the true correct identity. The 4-speed automatic transmission with electronic/hydraulic control including three direct gear change programmes compliments the power plant perfectly. The ultimate driving experience.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Correct and factory supplied BMW light alloy cross-spoke wheels have been refurbished and are in excellent condition wrapped in quality Michelin TRX 240/45/ZR415 tyres. A full size spare is present with factory supplied BMW gloves just in case you had to change the spare yourself! The anti-lock braking system with sensor and wear indicator brings this true performance contender to a straight and assured halt.
Registered new on the 23rd January 1989 by BMW Main Dealers Coopers Teesside this desirable Highline Coupe cost the first owner a staggering £35,516 excluding on the road charges. A wonderfully complete history file has been meticulously summarised by the previous long-term custodian of 12 years breaking down the date, mileage, description and cost of work done. A substantial collection of invoices, MOT certificates and a stamped service book helps to reveal the care bestowed on this example. A BMW printout provides useful information such as the specification and options fitted along with dates and mileage of visits to the Main Dealer. Sales literature from the period has been retained and is presented in a box file along with vehicle handbooks. The ultimate sports Coupe.
