Mein Auto: 6 series m
Help needed

Hi to all I could really do with your help

I'm about to inherit a 1989 6 series in a cream colour with the m badge on the rear and full Motorsport stickers across the body

Where can I find out more about the car if I get it's chassis number and how desirable is this model

Google "BMW VIN decoder". There are several available on line. You enter the last 7 digits of your VIN (serial number) and you'll get back when the car was made (down to the exact date), how it was originally equipped, what color it was when made (you'd be surprised how many have had a color change). All sorts of useful information.

Whether it's actually and M model will determine it's value. It's easy to stick badges on a car.
