M5 vs M6
I own an 88 M5 and an '80 Euro 635CSi, style wise it is a non-contest, the 6er, particularly a euro, with small bumpers is a clear winner. The e28 is a great driving car particularly an M but takes a BMW lover to appreciate the style. Value wise it is clear the 6ers carry a premium. Low mileage M6 examples will command $25k up where a similar M5 (US spec) would be lucky to hit $15k. True Euro M5's (not m535's with the non M engine) are very rare and do demand pricing between the US M5 & M6 IF you can find one. The US M6 88/89 have the "world" bumpers are are asthetically much nicer then the earlier US models. The M635 body wise are preferable although I do not see that permium much in pricing.
