Nothing but Original

I was actually quite disappointed when the second-generation BMW 6 series came out. Yeah it looks pretty up to date, but it just doesn’t have the wow factor. Now lets look at the original and still stunning 1980’s BMW 628 CSi

The first 6 series coupe derives from the BMW E9 Coupe and the E24 is a safer car to own as it had enhanced the chassis to make it a safer car to drive. I would say BMW is a very popular car to own in the world and especially in the United States mainly due to the overwhelming demand on the car. No doubt about it coz take any BMW old or new, it still looks stunning (put a side the 7 series and M1 coz I did not like the 7 series looks and the M1 was a disaster in the first place).

Driving this car for the first time is very hard as it has a long front which is hard to judge when you are driving it. On top of that parking is a problem for me as I am use to normal snouts but it just needs getting use to as driving this car around will turn heads. Seriously when it came to my house 5 years back I did not even know this type of BMW ever existed, as the design was timeless (a classy coupe with style written all over it!). This car had 2.8 liters on it and its practically a BMW 528i and was the first fuel injection 6 series on that time (before that the 630CS was a carburetored).

Although BMW had come out with the new 6 Series in 2003, it does not raise my wow factor to an orgasmic level. Don’t get me wrong, the E63 looks great and the power of the V8 (3.0/4.8 L) sends a trill to your spinal cords but they just don’t have the basic design of the E24 as its huge! The front of the E63 is not as long as its predecessor and the body are really wide. If you were to pop the boot, you will see that BMW’s E63 designers has a Porsche 911 in mind as it looks similar to the back of a 911. I think it’s a pretty good car to have when you have the money to spend (RM800,000 plus). I have actually saw a M6 roaring past me when I was in a coffee shop and man the sound of that engine makes you wonder if the car was created by the devil himself.

Well when you are looking at a girl that you like, the first thing that ever come out in my mind if, “man she looks good” (not putting the age factor into consideration at all). A pretty girl like the E24 will be the original chic in town!

About the Author

When I was a little younger, I never had the interest in cars at all. Somehow it picked it up when I was in high school and oh yeah did I mention my dad and brother loves cars as well? I am more of a Japanese Car lover then any other car but don’t get me wrong I like the rest as well. Let’s just say that Jap cars are the first on my list. Drifting, racing circuits and rallying, these are the thing that I love to do but I can’t! Well let’s just say I don’t have the skills for these kind of things. So the only thing I do is occasionally drive fast on the road when I am provoked by a much slower car or in par. "All you need to see is my tail light" turboturtle

  1. I love BMWs, just a 3 series is just right for me 🙂

  2. Well I do love the 3 as well but when they came out with the E90 i was disappointed as the diamond lights just doesn’t fit. I guess BMW had done something about it.
