    i really like these..it's a shame the 6 series has become what it is today.

    The shame is that the whole of the BMW range has been uglified. Except the 3-series coupe and possibly the convertible.

    The Z4 and the 7 series are alright, to a certain extent.

    But I agree, BMW doesn't have that classy, aggressive yet restrained look it used to have.

    Now it's just a mess trying to be modern, tripping over its own feet. Not classy at all.

    indeed, and even the 3 series, taken by itself, is not that great...it looks great next to it's brethren however

    I don't like the saloon and the estate, but the coupe is perhaps the only modern BMW where I'd say that maybe it was an improvement over the old one.

    In 1987, North America and Japan received their equivalent of the M635CSi, called the M6. The main difference between the M6 and its European counterpart, is that the S38 engine is used instead of the M88. Compared with the M88, the S38 has a catalytic converter, the compression ratio reduced to 9.8:1, a double row timing chain, a shorter camshaft duration and a simplified exhaust manifold. The power output for the North American E24 M6 is 191 kW (256 hp), which is 22 kW (30 hp) less than the European M635CSi.

    Standard equipment on the United States market M6 cars included many features which were optional on the European cars, including heated power seats, self-leveling rear suspension, beverage chiller (cooled by an air-conditioning system) between the rear seats, air-conditioning vents for rear seat occupants, sunshade for rear occupants and an 8 speaker premium sound system.

    Remarkable how much time goes by between thread additions. Recently purchased an '85 Euro M635csi and quite impressed... tried one in 1995 and thought it felt porky. I was used to the 3.0CSL.
