The successor was a more bland looking model, based on the shape of the first 7 series limousine. The car was available with the standard six cylinder engines ranging in displacement from 2.8 to 3.5 liter. The icing on the cake came when BMW introduced the TC-four valve engine from the mid-engined M1 in a slightly up-rated form to create the M635CSi, also referred to as the M6. This car started the tradition of giving the sportiest version of each model range the now famous M denomination.

The engine now produced 286 BHP (The M1 had originally 277 BHP, but could by tuned up to 470 BHP). The car was outwardly recognisable from the big spoiler below the front bumper. Racing versions of the car also appeared using the famous: Original Teile livery.

In a test for Road&Track in 1984 Paul Frere wrote: "This is much better than any BMW I've driven before. It is fast, civilised and the engine is beautifully smooth. In addition the ride characteristics are not at all harsh, while the handling is the best of all the BMWs we had here." In the test it did the quarter mile in 14.5 seconds.

Shown here is meticulously maintained low mileage example which has been in the hands of its current (second) owner for the last 15 years.
