  1. What's new in this club
  2. Yeah that ad pops up in my feed every once in awhile. I notice that the price has dropped $6k.
  3. BayArea 02 has partnered with 002Rescue to conduct a drive on 12 September! Actually, we have 2 drives available, a NorthBay drive led by Eric Friis and a shorter Eastbay drive led by yours truly. Important notes: · If you plan to participate in the NorthBay drive, please register on the 002Rescue Facebook page [Facebook reg page for NorthBay drive]. The shorter, simpler EastBay drive does not require preregistration. · Both drive routes will meet at Ft.Baker between 7:30 and 8:00 AM; meet at [Ft. Baker- Marina Rd. loop, Cavallo Point], South of the Discovery Museum on the Marina Rd. loop near the water. · All of us must maintain proper social distance and wear a mask at the drivers meeting and during any social interludes along the way. No way do we want any of us getting ill from a drive! · You may bring your lunch (a good idea for the NorthBay drive) or for the EastBay drive you can alternately purchase take-out at the end in Martinez. If you choose to eat with others, remember Social Distance Guidelines. In theory the weather will be partly cloudy with moderate temperatures in the 80’s—good for a drive! Larry Larry

  5. Hi! (best option at the bottom in my opinion) This is my first response but I have been using this thread religiously for a few months now and have finally decided to create an account. I have a situation (smog-related) very similar to yours. My father and I have begun to restore our old '76 2002 that has sat in our garage for the past twenty years. After about a month of working, we almost have the car ready to drive on the road. However, we have run into the exact same smog problem you are describing (we know it will not pass because we have ripped off all the smog components). Here is what I can suggest LEGALLY: -->obtain the smog components and send the vehicle to a mechanic to have them re-installed. There is a chance you can pass from reinstalling all the original components (although remember the state California is out to make it as hard as possible for you to have it pass) --> visit you local DMV and obtain a "vehicle moving permit (REG 172)." This will allow you to drive your 2002 around the neighborhood, or to any location really, regardless of whether the vehicle is registered or not (ours is currently non-operational status, with a 1997 registration sticker haha!). We simply got the form and copied it a few dozen times (each one is only good for a day), so for the foreseeable future we can drive the car around wherever we want an can not be ticketed for the registration if we are pulled over(just make up a plausible location every time). Obviously, this will not work for the long-term, so look below at what is arguably your best option. Here is what I can suggest NON-legally: -->Hot smog the car; in other words, if you know the right people, you can simple take your car to the smog station and they will "fake" smog the car for you (usually involves putting an entirely different car on the machine). This can cost you upward of $300, but over time the costs of this smog every two years far outweigh every other option you have. I personally have my first, upcoming smog appointment for our car this Monday (a friend of a friend of a friend kind of thing), so I am kind of nervous but am optimistic. -->THIS MIGHT BE BEST OPTION: You said you have a '75 2002 that you are pulling parts off of. Simply switch the VIN numbers of the cars. The models are so similar that no one pulling you over will ever notice the difference, and you will never have to pass smog ever again. All you have to do is register the '75, switch the VIN (and probably license plate) onto your '76, and then once you are done salvaging parts either properly dispose of the car (although it hurts me to say that) and enjoy your new "1975" BMW 2002. Hope I helping in one way or the other!
  6. Hello I have some 4.5x13 steel wheels that will need some clean up. Free if you want them.
  7. @Stuart please see picture above
  8. I have others. Do you have a picture of what you are looking for?
  9. Thanks for the pictures Stuart. Not quite the right fit for the car. Still on the hunt for something else
  10. I have a set of MIM 15x7 et25s. Completely restored. Silver lip, gold center. Email me for pictures. [email protected] Stuart
  11. I just picked up a 2002 and looking for a new set of wheels. Let me know what you have laying around Looking for stock early years steelies, e30 steelies or something simple and period looking Thanks
  12. Hi all, first time posting, but have read various posts over the years. I think my '76 is doomed, please tell me how to help save my BMW 2002 ! Basically, I have a 1976 BMW 2002 that I was not able to fully register because the engine blew after I first bought it, but before I was able to get it smogged and registered. When we bought it we had the oil and other fluids changed, but on the highway the oil filter fell off and well...you can guess from there. I also had collected quite a lot of great parts and even have another engine that drove really well. We have all the parts for a 5-speed conversion, LSD and axles, brand new 3-core radiator, new old stock kidney, etc... The purpose was for me to do a custom restoration to make it the way we wanted it, but I realized the work was beyond me. My wife was going to have it as her daily driver and has been waiting years for me to get this done. Now we have the money to pay an expert mechanic to do the restoration. The problem is that since it is a 1976, the smog laws seem to have created a situation we cannot legally get out of. We also have a parts car, I think it is a 1975, but would require more serious restoration work. We really need help here. I don't want to end up just parting it all out and scrapping the bodies, but I can't see any way to avoid this fate! Anyone out there who can help me save our '76 ?
  13. Mega bummer. I miss everyone's cars (sad face)
  14. Friday July 17th BayArea02 Swap&Show update. It saddens me to announce that the 20th BayArea02 Swap&Show, which was already postponed once, has been CANCELLED. We did our best to reschedule to a date where we hoped the COVID-19 situation would die down enough for us to have a safe event, but it’s only gotten worse, with no end in sight. Being a public event, the logistics of controlling the amount of attendees or their behavior to the degree that would make us feel safe in hosting such an event is prohibitive. Currently the city of Brisbane and San Mateo county are limiting public events to 50 or less people with no change for the foreseeable future. Moving the event to a location that allows more attendees seems foolhardy given the health crisis situation. If you preregistered through MotorsportREG and wish to cancel your registration, please either go to MotorsportREG.com or reply to this email ([email protected]) and we'll refund your registration. Please mark your calendars for 12 December for another Not the 49-mile Drive (perhaps social distanced but food is a question mark right now) and 1 May 2021 for the next Swap & Show at the Brisbane Marina. All the best, The BayArea02 team
  15. Swap & Show-2020 is now completely cancelled! Like so many other events, Swap & Show-2020 was postponed until 12 September. Although in May and June the pandemic seemed to be waning, by mid July it's rising again and the county and state governments give no hint of allowing even outdoor semi-large events (except for smaller religious services; does Swap & Show qualify?). Please mark your calendars for 12 December for another Not the 49-mile Drive (perhaps social distanced but food is a question mark right now) and 1 May 2021 for the next Swap & Show at the Brisbane Marina.
  16. I wouldn’t hesitate to call North Bay Bavarian in Santa Rosa. They have loads of experience with all BMWs, old and new, including our 2002s. Honest, professional and friendly too. Their number is 707-545-0820. Brian
  17. Looking to install H4 headlights, associated relays and then fog lights...want to make sure its all done correctly by a garage/individual who could handle any required upgrades. Cheers.
  18. Hi local chapter! Found a shop to paint my car. I want to send just the shell. No subframes. Anyone have a car dolly they can part with?
  19. Moving to short neck diff on my 68, and I need a new driveshaft. I have a Getrag 240 (not 245) I need a driveshaft I can shorten or if by an off chance you have one ready to go. Anybody in the Bay Area holding? Im in Santa Cruz area.
  20. I had some great conversations on the phone with the gentleman at Auto Dynamic and was planning on bringing a car there (the deal fell through) but he seemed very knowledgeable on the 2002 specific questions I was asking him.
  21. I went to Phaedrus for several years when I lived in the city. They are very professional. You might consider a drive to Santa Rosa for North Bay Bavarian. I can’t say enough about their expertise and honesty.
  22. Not sure where my text went...here is what was snipped (Sunnyvale Ford listing): https://www.sunnyvaleford.com/used/BMW/1976-BMW-n/a-for-sale-Sunnyvale-b41031950a0d0cc768c9d3406fcd203d.htm?searchDepth=4:4 ***WOW*** FULLY RESTORED and BEAUTIFUL CLASSIC BEEMA.

Call 408-522-0234 for additional info.
  23. Hi-- If you look at [http://www.bayarea02.com/service-providers/], you will find a list of service providers (not comprehensive). I have never selected one in San Francisco but I will comment that Auto Dynamik is a BayArea 02 sponsor. Personally, I typically drive a ways to have friends complete work that is increasingly beyond my ability but there are certainly reasons to select very local service. Larry
