There is no such thing as an M635csi here.

Only M6 - with S38 engine

Or 635 - with M30 engine

Read that ad again. It's a 635 with a few parts that they say are from an M6. It still has an m30 motor. If a car did come from the factory with an s14, m88 or s38 motor, it's not a true M car. And all M motors have dohc.

I've seen M635csi's here in Canada. They didn't have the motorsport motor though. The motors were 3.5ltr. M30's. It was mainly cosmetic and had an upgraded suspension (probably the same as M6). The ad is still correct. I does have the appearance of the M6, but it doesn't have the engine.
That one has the BBS RS wheels that are more valuable than the M6 wheels. Those alone are worth almost 2g's if in great shape.

The M6's however were a different story. The earlier versions had M88 motors and the later e24 M6's had S38's.

This one is comparable to the E28 European M535i. It had the cosmetic appearance (interior and exterior except for the tupperware body kit) of an M5, but had the non-motorsport engine. BMW still does this today by calling it the M-package. You see them on e90's and e60's....heck they even did these packages on E39's.

You're wrong. All M6 had S38B35!!!
However European M635CSI had M88/3
There are almost the same engines, except few small details.
For all time in Canada were sold 135 M6.
All M635CSI were made exclusively for Europe!
So I think the cars that you've seen before probably were regular 635CSI, but someone just put "M"
