Another Montrealer and another sixer owner. Here's my '87 635 CSi. I've owned it since Novemeber of 2009 but unfortunately had to let it sit for a year while I took care of some other things.

Finally got it out last summer and after a good clay barring, cleaning and polishing I so far have replaced the exhaust, wheels & tires (Style 5's on Flaken FK 452's), radiator, various belts and hoses, various steering components, floor mats, control arm bushings and put H&R springs/Bilstein shocks on this summer. Also recently threw on 10 mm spacers upfront and 25mm H&R Trak spacers in the rear and installed the front license plate delete. Waiting on a new lense to replace the cracked passenger side fog.

Car has 144000 KMs on it, is Alpinwhite over black leather, 5 speed manual with a Racing Dynamics kit from back in the day.

All in all lots of fun to own and drive in the summer on nice days and to tinker with in the garage on not so nice days.

Thanks guys. Drapes I recognize your car from the E24 section on Bimmerforums. My folks have a house up in Ottawa near the Civic Hospital so I 'm up there quite a bit, although I have yet to drive up in the six.

If you're ever up in Ottawa with six feel free to ping me, I'd love to see it. I'm in Westboro so not far at all from the Civic Hospital neighbourhood.

Thanks guys!

PSS mounted on new wheels coming next week!! Should loose about 10lbs a corner and finally rid myself of these terrible RFT's. Can't wait. I'll update the pics when mounted
