If you’ve got a soft spot in your heart for these big Bavarian GT cars like I do, you may want to have a look at this example, up for sale on eBay. It’s got less than 75,000 miles on the clock and appears (from the pictures at least) to be mostly rust free. Outside of some minor scuffs on the driver’s seat, the interior looks to be in good shape as well. More pics after the jump.

The 6 Series BMWs were more focused on luxury than they were performance or handling, but I’ve always been a big fan of their distinctive look. The silky smooth inline six pulls well, considering that it’s only making about 215 horsepower. Even with new rubber and new struts, the 6 series isn’t the best track day car; remember, you’re dealing with over 2 tons of sheetmetal here.

Still, the single overhead cam, 12 valve motor was pretty robust and featured (if I remember correctly) a timing chain instead of a less durable timing belt. Parts won’t be cheap, but regular service should be no problem for a competent shade tree mechanic. If the car looks as good in person as it does in the pics, it should give the new owner years of relatively trouble-free enjoyment. For a sub-$9k investment, would you rather drive a used Hyundai or a classic BMW?

    My wife is the current owner of this fine vehicle. We have had additional work done to maintain and enhance this Euro spec coupe’s fine qualities, using only euro spec parts. This car was priced market correct in 2010, when purchased. Unfortunately it is again available to serious buyers, those who know Joe Reina, and may have seen it there. Auto accident totaled showroom quality 2002 Euro sedan, (Her winter drive) fortunately for us and European quality and safety standards my wife walked away. We have receipts as all work performed at certified BMW service center during 2010. She will accept any appropriate offer, for those who seek only the best in a Big Coupe, if it is a Classic 6, Euro spec is the best.
