  • BMW 2002 FAQ

     

    It does not matter if you have had your Vintage BMW since it was new or if you just acquired your first one, whether you have one BMW 2002 or many Neue Klasse cars sitting in your garage, whether it is dedicated race car, or concourse queen, or a crusty daily driver, BMW 2002 FAQ is the place for you.

     

    Established on 02/02/2002, this site quickly became the primary resource for all BMW 2002 owners. Over time, dedicated forums and technical information were added for BMW Neue Klasse, BMW 700, and BMW 1600GT cars as The FAQ became the main stop for Vintage BMW owners in their daily routine.

  • Question: Lug Nuts for 15” BBS RS

    Hello.   I have just picked up a set of restored BBS RS’s in 15” x 7” et25 fitment for my 1970 2002.  I am wondering if the stock lug nuts are sufficient for these wheels. If not, I am wondering what I should use.   For whatever reason, I have always been a little mystified when it comes to tire/wheel sizes and specs so I thought I would check here to see if the larger wheel and tire requires a longer lug.   Any advice would be highly appreciated and my apologies if

    Solving the tii tank to pump hose problem

    Last week I began going back to the gym in anticipation of replacing all the hoses in my tii's fuel system. I knew one hose in particular wasn't going to be easy and I wanted to be 'fit' for the fight with the infamous Tank to Pump gas line.   I bought all the right hoses including the bigger 18mm x 12mm tank to pump hose. I got 3 of the hoses done...but I saved the best for last. Instead of "fighting" it through the frame tube I'll make the hole BIGGER...    So I busted

    Early roundie headlamp switch...whats the deal?

    So I've been working on some electrical stuff lately. One the the items was getting my headlamps on relays. Easy enough, got that done....but why is it my front parking lights only turn on when the headlamp switch is at the #1 position? Once I turn the headlamps on, the front parking lamps go out? And I checked the switch..that's indeed whats happening right out the switch. Is my new old stock switch bad, just like my original? I doubt it...what am i missing -Andy

  • Nos sunvisors and a lesson learned.

    NOS or “new Old Stock” might as well mean be prepared to pay through the _______ (fill in the blank).     It’s a bit of a risk as the manufacturers date is sometimes also not known, condition while “new” is still “old” or worse it’s something someone claims is NOS but actually isn’t.  Anyway i guess the point is when buying on eBay (or anywhere online for that matter) where you can’t inspect what you are buying is somewhat risky.     Sure you can buy from a reputable seller a

    M42 is the new black

    Early last year 2018, a friend, Rob swapped a m20 into his 318 Convertible and he asked me if I'd want his m42. I'd been interested in this swap for a while so I said absolutely. I was pretty intimidated no matter how many writeups saying it's easy I read. And thanks to all those who have done writeups before me. They were all super helpful.   Big shoutout to Jakeb for infinite and timely help along the way to my millions of questions he answered amazingly quickly considering how busy

    From turbo to second dyno day

    Many of you will have seen an abridged version of this on the 2002 group on Facebook, so apologies for the repetition. After taking the car to the dyno once the EFI build was finished, I kind of got the bug for more power which is probably no surprise to anyone here. I was somewhat disappointed in the 134rwhp/129tq on ITBs+EFI, and figuring that another dyno session with no substantial changes would only yield modest gains, I decided to stretch myself and go forced induction. I looked
