1988 BMW e24 m635 csi highline fully restored For Sale
1988 bmw m635csi highline
only 524 rhd ever made, of which 102 were the more sought after highline variant. This is car number 436.
alpineweiss metallic paint combined with grey extended leather.
this car has just been subject to a £16,000 full restoration. A very extensive restoration which took 11 months to complete. The restoration completed last month and the car is in brilliant condition. Over 400+ labour hours has been spent in stripping the car, removing any possible inch of rust, and restoring it to factory spec. The car has been kept completely original where possible by keeping the original panels such as wings etc. I have over 300 photos of the whole process of the restoration to show what exactly has been done to the car. It is now future proof.
the 3.5 litre 24-valve twin cam straight six m88 engine (lifted straight out of the only bmw super car – the m1) is a ferocious beast. In september 2018, the car went through a major service costing almost £1000. the car has only covered 300 miles since. A few years before, the car had the timing chain replaced which is necessary in the upkeep of a car like this. It runs very smoothly and has plenty of power. The car also has the upgraded fritz bitz stainless steel exhaust system fitted which is the perfect upgrade to the car.
the car has a huge file of service history with many invoices and old mots and so on. A great deal has been spent on this car over the years. The original well stamped service booklet is also present as well as all the book packs and spare keys.
the exterior paintwork is as you'd expect of a fully restored car, with no rust, no scratches or dents, and free from any stone chips. The chrome work is still in great condition and has not been replaced, in order to retain originality. The car has been upgraded to 17" bbs rc090 alloys which are the best wheels for this car. The original 15" trx alloys also come with the car. Including an unused spare. The car also is fitted with the green tint at the top of the windscreen.
the engine bay is very clean and showcases the legendary m88. the boot area is also very clean and the car still retains its full bmw tool kit.
being a highline model, this car is covered in leather on the inside. Grey nappa leather covers the full door cars, the dashboard, the headlining, all the seats and so on. A very luxurious option at its time. The sunroof is in perfect working order and tilts up as well as slides back. Both the front seats adjust in every possible direction even including the electric foot rest extension and headrest. All electronics work as they should. The obc is in perfect working order with no pixelation. The check control panel is also working. The original radio is also still fitted and works. The interior has also just been professionally detailed at a cost of £600. 30 years of dirt has all been removed from the seats, doorcards, dashboard, and most importantly the carpets. The interior is in very nice condition now.
the car has covered 150,000 miles since new, and very little mileage over the last few years. And having already had a timing belt changed, the car is more than capable of doubling its mileage.
