great, I always wanted an early one, with the chrome bumpers, the later and faster ones were a bit boy racer for me.

Sub-zero. Swift, elegant, stylish. One of the best proportioned cars ever.

Sub zero, always loved this model and its predecessor. Not many other BMWs get my attention.

I work on the docks and a couple of years back customs released a 2800CS they'd impounded for 7 years, looked in good nick and very pretty. Don't think the owner was available to collect it!

Definitely cool but not enough to be sub-zero.

Office Chair.

Could not decide between cool and sub only because it's a Beemer, which seemed a bit unfair.
I have always liked this car which probably means it's pretty crap .
Sub-zero (just).

This and the 840/850 coupés are my two favourite Beemers.

Cool - Some of the Lancashire boys might have seen an M635csi which someone used to park on the side of Grane Rd near Haslingden had it for years in good condition then just seemed not to be bothered anymore and now it's gone.

I like them... but buy a BMW after they ruined the ETCC by lobbying FIA to align homologation with their current model and drag other manufacturers into line at expense or expulsion... sneaky Germans :/ I'd rather buy a Maserati Ghibli thanks, even if it does break down

Looks much better than GTV6. But not an Alfa. Still cool though.

Definitely SUB ZERO!
I used to have a glass one on a wooden plinth, when I was just a boy, and I was lucky enough to own a real one when I was a young man.
I am now mid 40's and have owned about 15 cars but this was my favorite and the longest owned (5 and a half years) I have also owned a 5 series and a 7 series, and while the 7 was a newer and better car, I still preferred my 635CSi. I haven't seen one on the road for years but, to me, this is car porn of the highest order!
