  1. What's new in this club
  2. Thanks! I'm in the South Bay/SJ area.
  3. Cool car! Welcome to the team. Where are you located?
  4. Hi everyone! My name is Lance and I just recently picked up this 74 2002 tii from a buddy of mine who purchased it a few years back from another guy in the bay area. It has its little bits and pieces that need some attention, as most 02's do, but over the car is in excellent condition. The car was featured in Petrolicious at one point, here is the link: https://petrolicious.com/articles/this-bmw-gives-2002-reasons-to-keep-fixing-it So far, after looking over the car, Ive found that the driver side frame rail is rusted out and is slightly pushed upward towards the driver side floor. Ive already ordered and received a new frame rail and have reached out to The Resto Shop to get that swapped out. Ive also just swapped out the motor mounts with IE poly motor mounts. The motor no longer dances while its running. Im also currently swapping out the shotty made coilovers from the original owner to some better ones. sadly, the original motor was swapped out for a 80's 320 m10 that had lower miles and is carbureted. Which I dont mind, but having the original setup would have been great. Im trying to see if there are any specific differences in the 320 m10 vs the 2002 m10 so I know what i'm dealing with maintenance wise. I'd hate to order the incorrect parts for the motor if there were some serious changes from the e10 to the e21. Im still new to this car and i'm reading up more on the little quirks the 02 has and i'd love to meet up and chat with some local bay area 02 owners who I can learn from about the car and get some insight on the car/motor. So do lmk if there are any running meets I could swing by. 😎🤙 oh and sorry in advance for all the questions that I will be asking. 😅

    BayArea 02 MayDay Drive 2021

    Images from our MayDay Drive on 1 May 2021. Thank you to all participants and for each of these photos you shared!

    Hi Brent-- I have no head count since we're not planning any reservations, such as for lunch. Basically, most BayArea 02 drives are just whoever appears can join the group. I'm expecting anywhere from about 5 cars to perhaps 20, but I'm not sure exactly how many. Our last 2 drives (September & December, 2020) had 20-30 cars appear and a subset drove a route. I'm expecting fewer next week since this drive is lower-key. If you are interested in who you might meet on MayDay, feel free to ask on the BayArea 02 page or in the general 02 discussion page (maybe as a question

    So, have you got a headcount yet? I would consider driving over from Folsom, but want to make sure I'm not alone. Would be a great chance to meet up with some fellow collectors. Thanks, Brent
  10. We go through SJ every time we go see our kids and grandkids in SLO county. If I don't find some local before then I'll hit you up next trip, should be less than a month. T

    Swap & Show 2021

  12. Hi Manuel, What's your location? I'm in Santa Rosa. Ted
  13. I have four you can have if you want to pickup. Manuel
  14. Need at least 2 (4 would be great) 13" tires to be able to roll the new '68 1600 project around. Don't care how worn or old they are just need to hold air and bead not rip out when mounting. 2 tires had sidewall rot bad enough that the tore open and the tubes bulged out and one even popped.
  15. Thanks for the pointers. Cars been non op for a while, in great shape, was an automatic (bigger trans tunnel), clean title, extremely happy I found it. The engine was out of the car when I bought it, had been rebuilt (yes I know, why not use it? Wanted a turbo m20 to begin with so sold the engine to pay for my new one and much more). M20B25 off a 92 E30 325ic, 80k miles, pulled it from a totaled car so it ran prior to the accident (got carfax to check it was running). That photo was more of a here's my car and less detailed on the wiring. Still need to check exact compression, but it all sounds good when I turn it over. I ran through the whole engine when it was out of the car to make sure everything was in good condition and cleaned what I could. I'm unsure about the coil. After trying to start it a few times I went and touched the ignition coil and it felt hot so I'm guessing that's a good sign. The coil has its own power and ground so I think my problem is ECU/engine power related. I do have books for both, but with the wiring having already been pulled back, cut, and out of sorts with the old aftermarket alarm, doesn't make it easy. The auto has additional relays which could be causing problems, still unsure. I am going to spend some more time this weekend, I'll make sure everything is grounded properly, but I did run a meter on it and things seemed good. If I can't figure things out soon on my own I will post detailed photos, but still really hoping that someone with an M20 would pop their hood for me. I would happily take a drive to look at it. Seeing something in person is so much better than photos and drawings. I already looked at an E30 to make sure engine wiring is correct. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.
  16. First welcome to the site and the bayarea02 club. I'm in Oakland and have a 1974 2002 with the stock m10, but I have experience with m20's, other BMW's and engine swaps. That looks like a pile of colorful snakes and a hot mess, but nothing that can't be sorted out with some help. What is the history of the car? Was it running before you started the engine swap? What is the history of the engine? Was it running when you got it? Did you see or hear it run? I would start with the ground wires on the shock tower, they may not be properly grounded. Grounds are very important on a efi engine. Is the ECU bolted down? It grounds through the bolts holding it to the chassis. You say you have fuel and can crank the engine over with the starter and I assume air isn't the problem. What about ignition? Is the coil firing? Is there power to the coil? If your unsure of spliced wires I would suggest redoing them properly with good connectors and/or soldering and shrink wrapping. If you haven't already I would get a factory wiring diagram for the 02 chassis and the m20 engine. Then you can identify and label all the wires for easier installation and troubleshooting. I know there are a few guys locally that have 02's with m20 swaps and lots more on this site. Try searching the forum with the search function.
  17. I am currently working to restore a 73 with an m20 engine. I have gotten pretty far along, but I am having trouble getting the engine to fire. I am definitely having some wiring issues and was hoping that someone local could provide some assistance. The car came with an aftermarket alarm installed which I have removed, but still unsure if some spliced wires are causing a problem. I do appreciate all the forms and help there is online, but there's nothing like looking at something in person. It turns over with the starter and I have an aftermarket fuel pump sending fuel no problem. My car is stored at my garaged in Redwood City, if you have an m20 2002 and want to stop in, that would be amazing, but if not I would be happy to drive somewhere if anyone is kind enough to let me take a look at their car. Thanks

  19. The BayArea02 is organizing a drive Saturday May 1st starting at the Brisbane Marina...
  20. Looks like Ill have to make my way on over. Max! when are we gonna do a drive?!
  21. this place is legit. Old school San Jose hold out
  22. Ah ok looks pretty nice! I wonder if they are open weekends maybe I’ll roll it into klass and coffee. im surprised I haven’t found any thing up by me in Oakland/ SF/ San Mateo area....
  23. I’ve used San Jose Auto Steam Cleaning In the past on two different 02’s and I’ve been happy. They’re on the corner of Stockton and the Alameda across from the Whole Foods just on the other side of the tracks from the shark tank. I don’t know why my previous post with the pictures didn’t include all of this verbiage but those are the two cars I’m speaking about above.
