The History of this Car

I bought this car in 1999 in Plano, Texas from Norm Grills. Norm is a longtime BMW motorcycle and car enthusiast, and started a national club for the 6-series, called The Big Coupe Group, which maintains a great technical section (google it). He was the 2nd owner, but the first owner put about 30k miles on it. It had 125k when I got it, and after trips to New York, New Orleans, Seattle, Los Angeles, and Arizona, it is now up to 166k miles now. Still runs like a top, and the whole body is tight.

In addition to the M5 wing and custom wheels, the car has a short-throw shifter on the 5-speed manual (much more desirable than the automatic), front strut-brace, and of course a Dinan performance chip. The '85 models came with anti-lock brakes. The windows are tinted silver, and the whole car was repainted in its original color by a certified BMW shop in 1997.

It has all the options, and everything works and is in excellent condition. It has always been garaged, and never driven in the Northern winter. It spent its whole life in Texas before I owned it, so I could not let myself be the one to expose it to evils of salt and snow. The car is stored in Champaign, Illinois, but I can deliver to Chicago at no charge. It is ready to drive anywhere in the country if you want to fly-in and drive it home.
