One of none? What have I got?

Looking for a bit of help here...
Just drove home in a new (to me - obviously...) 1985 M635csi-USA. From what I've seen so far, such a thing doesn't exist.
It has a born on date of 10/84 and has the remnants of a USEPA sticker in the
door-jambs and all dash markings are in English. 160mph speedo. But it's got euro bumpers. VIN WBAEE310301050776.
Thanks in advance for any info.

I guess it's not as confusing as I first thought...
Decoding the VIN shows it to be a "run of the mill" Euro M635CSi/M88 with the buffalo leather. 776th one made. I think I've got a very cool car on my hands!
