  • 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.

  • 02 specific tools?

    Noob question I’m sure, but noob I am..   I’m about to embark on a 1976 02 restoration project.  I’ve never worked on a BMW before.  I’ve done a limited amount of as-needed repairs to other cars (Japanese & American) and my tool kit at this point is all pretty generic craftsman mechanic tools.  My project will involve repair & replacement of body panels, interior furnishings and the installation of replacement engine/trans & driveshaft.     Are there BMW/02 specific

    Factory Choke Cable

    I picked up this choke cable primarily for the knob that matches the rest of the car and will install it on my '75 with a converted 38 DGAS carb. Anyone know what the electrical connections are for? I am guessing that these wires would not be in the '75 harness - correct?     Thanks,

    Stuff coming out of exhaust pipe...

    So my ANSA tail pipe fell off my (ANSA?) muffler. I was lucky to notice it in my garage instead of leaving it on the road. My local shop welded it back on for me in a jiffy...thanks goes to Graham! But before he did, we noticed some fiberglass or fiber like woven material coming out of the muffler. It's almost like a rope type nylon type substance. I stuffed it back in there and off we went.   Got home and some of it was now trailing out of my tail pipe. I pulled it out but am won

    Assembly of the engine bay has begun in earnest

    Since it was a year between my last two updates I’m going to try to update this each time I work on the car.   Last fri I glued in the firewall pad. Tonight I glued the outer insulation pad to the pedal box, repaired and re-wrapped the bulk of the engine bay wiring, and installed the coil/resistor/relay, and the pedal box/booster/brackets.

    Minor update

    I’ve managed to fit a a new outer wheel tub, a new outer rocker panel, and a harvested trunk divider. I also have the quarter panel from the ‘69 for this car once it’s time. Rebuilt and powered coat trailing arms and long neck subframe were installed under the car to make it a roller again.    I also removed the engine/trans so I could get a better idea of how bent the front of the car is. It didnt look good from what I can recall.  I won’t like
