These were followed by the 1978-1982 215bhp 635CSi (0-60 in 7.3-8.3, 1/4 mile in 16.2 secs) and the 1979-1987 183bhp 628CSi (0-60 in 8.8, 1/4 mile in 16.4). Noteable changes were made to the exterior and interior in 1982/83 and the 635CSi went from 3453cc to 3430cc (see images). Like most cars there were, country to country and year to year changes made to the interior, exterior and engine specs.
