I purchased my first BMW E24 635csi back in 1993 and took care of it for more than 21 years. At the 19 year mark
my original 635csi was joined by this stunning M6 which I picked up almost 3 years ago. I searched for almost 6
months to find this pampered M6 which was originally located in Nashville, Tennessee. So yes this M6 has never
been driven in Northeast salt and has been garaged ever since. Think of this car as being from the South and only
recently transplanted to the Northeast.
As I got to know the E24 when I received this M6 i quickly applied many of my original upgrades on my original 6 to
this M6. Modern amenities such as Xenon/HID headlights, an Alpine stereo with Bluetooth / Pandora / iphone support
with meaningfully improved German Helix speakers. Note that the integrated Pandora and iPod support only works with
IOS7 and earlier so if you are on IOS8 it won't work unless you hotspot to an ipod touch / earlier iPhone 4/5 with
pre IOS7, which is what I ended up doing once the iphone 6/6+ came out with IOS8. I also upgraded to remote power
locks since it's quite embarrassing to have to manually use the key to open your car door in the year 2015 plus the
heated key door locks are prone to wearing out and breaking and are expensive to repair.
Even though I wanted to see the road clearer with HID (Xenon) headlights leveraging the focused beam lenses that
came standard with 88 & 89 6 series, I didn't appreciate getting blinded by bright headlights following me. Hence
the need to install an LCD rearview dimming mirror. Since I also backed up into my garage I wanted to maximize my
back-up visibility and so I had the best back-up camera system installed which beeps and shows exactly whats behind
/ below / beside the rear of the car. This is exactly the kind that you'd find in a car more than 25 years newer.
Since an '88 M6 does not have room in the dashboard for a big integrated display I went with integrating it into
the rear view mirror display which by the way also has integrated bluetooth handsfree audio support for your
Since it's a known fact that if a car as stunning as this is driving 10 miles above the speed limit vs. non-head
turners, this car for sure will get pulled over by the police. Given this I had the Laser Interceptor
professionally installed which is essentially a Laser Radar jammer. Normally when the police/radar/speed camera
hits this car -
