That fine example of brandnew-like condition of that 635Csi will commend big prices for such a gem. It looks as if it was only driven off the freight and immediately parked in the showroom which would mean that it is possible it might only have a few dozen kms.

If indeed that is the case and this car has less than 100 kms it would be a very rare car.

It really is a beautiful 635

in a way its cool just to know cars like this exist still, and its just there for the public to see, kinda cool considering the guy that ownes it could have it stored away in a storage unite somewhere. lol even the dealership is a blast from the past.

It is quite a treat even for myself to have seen these cars today and I agree, it is really neat that there is someone out there like this owner who intended to collect these cars and keep them as when they were new over 20 years ago as well as to showcase them as he has done.

Looking at them in that condition is like you travelled back in time and reminds us how beautiful these cars were when they were delivered to the dealership in that bygone era.

to be honest i'm kinda of supprised that more people on this site didnt know about these cars existing, espically with them being so visable to the public. just as a side question did bmw call all of there dealerships citation or was it just the owner of this dealership that called it that.

It would be incredible if the actual owner visited this site and decided to give us a detailed history of these cars.

Thanks Touchofclass for some revealing insight on some of the history.

I would like to see the 3 series cars but since they are not there I would assume that they are e30's from 1985 or earlier.

I dont know if its a good idea to leave them out like this...not much of a security system from what i see...I bet collectors around the world would pay top $$$ for something like that!

i wouldnt be at all supprised at this point if the 3 series were in the shop area around the back. I doubt the guy would be selling the dealership/property after this many years of allowing it to sit. if you want to see somthing cool as well go around to the side where the service area would have been and you can see some old parts (air filters and such) and some bmw merchandise in a display case, as well as old government issues signs that were used to show that the building was a smoke free environment (very late 80's early 90's)

hotwheels that was me man should have come back, i don't bite

i took some pics, and will post them later as im off to bed.

In the back there are some neat toys, a dark blue 635CSi, 733i (84-87) a dolphin blue E21 although it MAY have been a 2002 as they look similar and i could barely see it, that was all covered in dust and that had the hood open, and another 635CSi up on a hoist that was a colour i had never seen before, a rusty orange, not unlike the colour that GM has on the cobalts and such...

Also to those who are interested, there are some parts that are on the parts counter, and some old BMW accesories on display, also there are 4 sets of keys in back on a rack.....
