Hi all,

I've been lurking for a while and just now introducing myself. I recently purchased my first BMW, an 09/84 production M635CSi in hennarot, chassis 1050705.

As soon as saw this photo on eBay, I knew I was in trouble:


Here it is, coming off the truck in Ogdensburg:


In the driveway:


Playing around with Instagr.am on my iPhone. I think it looks a bit like it might have in a sales brochure at the time:


And only a few weeks after I got it, here it is in winter storage:


I'm looking forward to getting it out of storage in the spring and getting it fully sorted and ready to go. I picked up a set of genuine open-lug Alpinas that I plan to install, but I'll have to deal with the brakes first as they won't fit over the Brembos on there now. After that it will be just driving it and working down the list of little details that need to be addressed. Should be fun!

Mark

I've never been a fan of 6ers.

That just changed.

I passed by that car everyday going to my office (while it was out) and it almost made me get in an accident the first time I saw it. Pictures definitely dont do enough for this car, it's that f'in nice.

In fact I was tempted to ring the bell and ask if it was for sale! But thought it may have been a visitor because of the cali plate.

Anyways, congrats on the purchase. That car is fantastic!

Thanks for the kind words, guys!

The car does look great from a distance, but as you get closer the paint starts to reveal its age. It's definitely a "driver".

Feel free to stop and take a look in the spring beem3r when it's back out again. Ring the bell if you're up for a chat.

I'm sure with a good detail it will look even better. Let's just say from the street to seeing it in the driveway, it looks flawless!

Made me jealous anyway

Thanks! I'm looking forward to driving it a bit when it dries up.

Hi, fellow Ottawans.

I'm Jeff and I have been quietly using these boards for a short while. Here's the E30 325is I just bought from vrbovsky. Hoping to use it as a light daily driver and occasional autocrosser for a year or two, and once I have a garage and a little more disposable income, we'll see where it takes me.
