Potential Purchase
Just out of curiousity...are the "non-Euro" versions of the 635 much different aside from the seats? I have an 87 on the line that I am preparing to purchase but I keep hearing lots of mixed views on it just because its a US version.

The Euro versions are quite a bit different from the US versions especially in the mechanical area. I believe the engines are quite a bit different. Others with more knowledge will chime in. I might suggest posting on forum.

The euros aren't really different mechanically except for some very minor things. The seats aren't different as sport seats or Recarros were not sstandard, but an option. Main difference is in the bumpers and air dam. Original exhaust was different, but nothing really major. Engines and gear boxes are the same except a euro with a dirty engine puts out more hp

Euro engines/exhaust do not have a CAT attached to the headers. Straight pipe to the mid resonator and then the rear muffler. HP is higher on the Euro dirty motors, but mostly interchangeable parts with the US models. Find a nice Euro model and make everyone jealous. :D
