  • 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.

     

    The most active Classic BMW Forum is rapidly growing and has more than one million posts. There are over 300 Blogs that contain some of the greats of Race Car Builds and Restoration Project. The Article section has over 200 items ranging from BMW 2002 News and Event Recaps to FAQs and Technical Instructions. The Gallery contains over 500 albums with more than 6000 images. Wheels Database includes 150 wheels that will fit your car. Videos Collection is growing rapidly and has broken the 200 items mark. Seventeen location specific Clubs are striving. The calendar is full of BMW 2002 and Neue Klass related events, and the Registry is growing quickly.

     

    The FAQ is owned and operated by a very small group of dedicated individuals, but the majority of the wonderful content is provided by its members. Members are our greatest asset. Members and their contributions make BMW 2002 FAQ what it is.

  • Brake Pedal Feel Mystery

    Hello all,    I've done all the searching, yet haven't found another case like this discussed on the site. Symptom: My brake pedal feels extremely firm and great after I've just started the car. If I use a little more pressure with my foot (seems to be variable), the pedal feel "pops" and almost graduates to a completely different spongy pedal feel.    Recent work: New pads, rotors, wheel cylinders, shoes, fluid flush and power bled (performed by us on the driveway).

    Cleaning Original Carpet

    As I'm restoring my 2002, I planned to clean and re-use my original 1974 tan carpet for the time being. I may do Esty's carpet in the future. I've had rust repaired, put down Rammat and soon Ensolite.    I took my molded carpet to a local dry cleaner who cleans rugs, and was quoted a price of $35 to clean it. A couple of days later, the cleaner called and said they cannot clean it due to dry rot.....it would not survive the cleaning process. I picked my carpet up and I don't see why it

    Cracked 121 Head

    I am wondering if anyone has any experience with a cracked head. I have a 121 head and the machine shop told me it has three cracks on the exhaust side. I am unsure of the severity and depth.  Is this the type of thing that can be welded up or should I do my best to find a new head and hope that it too, is not cracked? Is this common for m10 engine heads? The machine shop said this would be expensive and time consuming, but the guy im buying the car from says its no big deal to weld it up, not t

  • Ready for his closeup

    So it's been quite a journey with good old Fred. Blood, sweat and cursing. He was named Fred by my wife because when he showed up in the driveway, he was painted black and she thought he looked like a top hat, like Fred Astaire's. So Fred he was.    I learned a lot and spent a lot. Hundreds of hours in the garage while Pandora kept me entertained. Dozens of questions and help from all you FAQ'ers, Steve at Blunt and various friends and mechanics. Quite the journey.    He's fi

    Motor Meet Tranny.

    Progress has been slow.  (I promise not to start every blog post that way!)  However, I now have the electric motor (Parker GVM 210-150) mated to the 4-speed transmission with a coupler from Hayes to mount the clutch assembly and a custom aluminum bell housing adapter.  That motorcycle in the background of the photo below is one of the reasons why progress has been so slow, but I'll save that for a separate post...          So what does it look like in the former engine bay?

    Turbo update

    Hey folks just a quick update for the three people following me.   The Turbo is being redone, and will back to me in about a week.   I will update this  post with regards to the bits that I have procured to help me manage boost, temperatures and pressures etc....     So considering I have a bit of time before I go boosted, I decided to taking the log boat from China approach.  If I can wait a month to get the sensor, I can save myself a lot of $$.  Like a map sensor for $10 instea
