1988 M6

I am offering my 1988 BMW M6 for sale. The car is finished in Cinnabar red over lotus white leather and is powered by the 3.5-liter S38 inline-six. I purchased the car in March of 2012 from the third owner in Chicago. IL. The odometer gears were replaced shortly after purchase but subsequently failed again at x197K miles. The 17″ BMW Style 5 wheels were professionally refinished shortly after my purchase. Recent services include oil change, new spark plugs, and valve adjustment. A clean Maryland title, tool kit, matching Style 5 spare, and owner’s manual are included with the sale. The car was repainted by its second owner in its original color. The accompanying photographs show stone chips on the front spoiler along with a few other marks. In addition the second owner replaced the 5 speed transmission at 100K miles. There is anecdotal information from the second owner that the first owner either replaced engine or had it rebuilt at roughly 88K miles. I have been unable to make contact with the first owner to verify this information. Receipts verify the transmission replacement. The car has Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires which were installed in April of 2016. The tires have 2016 date codes. The tires are 235/45/17 at all four corners. The front seats and rear package shelf have been professionally recovered. A new leather shift boot was made at the same time. All interior controls function properly with the exception of the odometer. The factory trunk-lid-mounted tool kit, warning triangle, and spare tire are included. Since I have owned the vehicle I have done the following in addition to items previously mentioned: - Repaired broken seat bolster on the driver's seat - Replaced front kidney grills - Replaced left rear taillight lens - Upgraded the rear taillights with LED bulbs - Replaced alternator - Replaced front windshield - Replaced power steering pressure hose (custom replacement, no longer available from BMW) - Valve adjustment - Replaced steering wheel w/ M Technik II steering wheel (original wheel comes with car) This vehicle was featured in the Investigation Discovery network TV series Evil Kin, season 4, episode 6, Like Father, Like Sons. In addition it is the cover photo on the January/February 2019 issue of the National Capital Chapter of the BMW Car Club of America’s bi-monthly magazine the Der Bayerische.
