I became the owner of a 1989 635 CSI last Monday, which I had not really planned (not that particular one anyway, the joys of ebay!). It is dolphin grey, with grey leather. It is very low, with some 17" bmw wheels. I think it came that way from the factory.
It seems in fairly good condition (I have yet to see it in the light of day), and I drove it 200 miles back to my home, in the rain, with only one scare which happened after a few miles in the journey. Namely, The car shook violently when reaching 50mph. I had gone faster before, so I was surprised (and started thinking about what the journey would be like in an AA truck!) The type of shaking which actually goes worse initially when slowing down. It was not a wheel balance shake either, but a "S..t, the wheels are coming off" kind. I stopped, checked that the wheels were solidly attached (they were), fuelled up and went again. It did come back at some point (at about 80mph) but nowhere as bad, and higher speeds made it disappear...
Anyway, it is my 4th car (the other 3 are as old or older), 1st bmw, and I am undecided as to whether I will keep it or not. Hopefully, this forum will help me make a decision!
Thank in advance
