Pinned  BMWCCA Ofest 2014 - a FAQer field report

Jun 20 2014 09:40 AM | visionaut in Events

So I made it to Oktoberfest 2014, which this year was held relatively nearby to Denver, in Beaver Creek, CO. I was just a minor participant - only attending the Pirelli Concours event on Tuesday as a Display-only (non-judged) car, and also appearing in the Bimmers On Broadway street-show event held in Eagle, CO on Wednesday afternoon. It was great escape to be able to attend a bit of OFest, and also get in some nice fishing/hiking/skating/partying in next-door Vail, CO. I had a fun time, and there were some really nice cars, and car owners, in attendance. Good stuff.

Retrofitting a BMW 2002 factory sunroof

Jul 25 2014 03:03 PM | Artcop in Body and Interior

Sure, I got a lot of the expected responses: 'why don't you just buy one with a sunroof?', or 'just cut the pillars and stick it on- done and done'. No thanks. Those of you who came here because you love your current '02, or you just don't have a pile of money and time to shop around for another one, or you're just interested to find out what it would take to accomplish this will hopefully get some answers here. If you have any real questions about the procedure don't hesitate to contact me through the forum, I'll be happy to share what I (now) know.

Another great Petrolicious Article

Jul 25 2014 03:17 AM | Cyclone101 in News

I enjoy the simplicity of older cars but really love how a BMW 2002 drives. They are nimble but still give you that old school feel. I find myself taking the long way home or finding any excuse to just get out for a spin.
