What color is that? Is it artic blue metallic? I had an M635 that was imported into the US via Hardy and Beck via a dealer in France and it was artic blue (looks a lot like yours). Loved that color as it was never imported on US cars via BMWNA.

Here are some photos of mine. Sold the car but loved that color.

If you wanted to buy a factory fresh 1988 m5/m6,
where would you look? Does BMW have a "classic"
division in their company where you can send your
classic BMW and they restore it? If so, do these include
M cars and engines?

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing...

I have had the itch for a E24 for a long time, used to have a 635CSI which I loved and modded with headers, suspension and exhaust. It is my all time favorite BMW I have owned. If I get the opportunity to pick up a M635CSI or 87-88 M6 somewhat locally I will jump on it. There are several low mileage models available now but they are far away and I am not comfortable buying a 25 year old car without seeing it. I seem to be always on the lookout for these cars therefore sooner or later I will have to add one to the stable.

I have heard that the factory in Germany will do this, but at great expense. I saw they completed a restoration project of a 2002 touring for a German dignitary. They did not mention cost but the car looked like new when completed.

Here in the states someone like Frank Fahey can restore these but the costs would not be cheap. A number of parts (particularly trim and some body parts) are becoming NLA so you need a good car to start with. There are a few 1987-89 M6s in Ca here but they are not the most desirable due to the higher curb weight and lower engine power. The M5s were available in the US for one model year (1988) and one color (black). All other years are gray market imports which may have their own problems/issues, depending on who did the DOT/EPA certs. Right now in California it is impossible to bring in a gray market car if the DOT/EPA cert work was done out of state.

I like the Euros because of the light weight, available options (such as buffalo hide interiors, manual sport seats) that were not provided on US cars; and the low profile light weight bumpers. US 635s and M6s had those large 5 mph bumpers.

In other parts of the world finding a good example that is rust free is difficult. Ca is still the best place because we don't get snow (unless you live in Tahoe or the mountains).

Good luck finding one that is rust free on the East Coast. Maybe you will get lucky and find a stored one owned by a collector, but these have not appreciated a lot in value so they have not been hotly collected up til now. Plus, finding a low milage car that has not been driven for all these years means a lot of other problems will surface when you finally get the car road worthy.
