    New member in Calgary with a mild basketcase. Have some other projects on the go but might get in to this next winter. Added it to the registry. Not far from the guy in Cochrane on here and I had previously watched the header build videos before seeing them linked here. Small world.

    Importing a car into B.C.

    Here's a link: https://www.cbp.gov/trade/basic-import-export/export-docs/motor-vehicle Need to get paper work to border you plan to cross 72 hrs in advance. They do a title check on it. Wesite is pretty thorough and you can call the border as well to make sure you have all the paper work figured out. I did it a while back but didn't have a problem. YThe border people were quite helpful. Good luck Roman
  4. I know there is a guy who has a 72 tii out in red deer. 90% complete restoration I think the grille and the seats need to be installed but are all there. Color looks to be granada. He's asking 15k needs slight work but it would be 100% worth it. From the pictures it looks really really good. Check for it on Kijiji there's also a guy in Edmonton looking for 15 for a running driving base 2002. Either way if I had the cash I would be picking up the tii in red deer. Looks like a lot of work went into it. Good luck!

    Looking for the following: Front grilles Center grille Euro turn signals Rear roundie tailights Front and rear bumpers Beltline trim Always looking for ti parts to help with my ti restoration. All parts should be OEM BMW in NOS or excellent condition. Let me know what you have.
  6. Folks, Looking for a nice driver roundie 2002, ti or tii. Must be legally on the road, solid body and in Canada. Ideal car would be a ti, tii in inka. Let me know what you have or if you know where any are hiding.
  7. I plan to move me and my car to Victoria later this year and I’m wondering if anyone has recent recent experience with our friendly borders (insert irony and sarcasm here). Years ago I imported my ‘62 700 to Quebec and all I had to do was drive the car to the border, sign some paperwork and be on my way. Now I hear you have to pay an American Customs broker etc etc Any advice would be helpful - thanks!
  8. No idea if it's a clone or the real deal, but I always see it driving along 16th ave near Main in Vancouver. Stunning car, you may have seen me gawking at the car passing by a few times.
  9. Anyone here in Southern Ontario know of a reputable transmission repair shop that could rebuild my getrag 245 - 5 speed. Suffered a bit during my limp back from Cape Breton. Roman

    Fonthill - Nashville Tennessee road trip

    I am back from my road trip to Nashville TN, Everything went well. In Ohio I thought that crease was running out of my left front wheel bearing. Found this BMW specialist that used to Race 02's. Just Blau Mit Weiss, 3251 Highland Avenue, Cincinnati, Ohio 45213 https://www.facebook.com/Just-BlauMitWeiss-549855058423292/?ref=page_internal . The owner John and his team right away made time for us and checked the wheel bearing. Lucky there was nothing wrong and he checked all vital points of the car before we went back on the road again. When we left the shop the rain finally stopped and the rest of the week it was sun and temperatures between 30 and 35 degrees. Monday afternoon we visit Lane motor museum Nashville https://www.lanemotormuseum.org . This museum has a huge European car collection including a BMW 320 made by Baur from 1938. https://www.lanemotormuseum.org/collection/cars/item/bmw-320-1938 In the Basement of the building are about 400 cars that are not on display and we got a private tour to see them. This is one of the advantages of showing up with a rare car. Friday morning we left Nashville to drive the back roads back home, after 800km of back roads it was time to hit the Highway. It was like my car was happy to get on the autobahn, no more traffic lights.

    Fonthill - Nashville Tennessee road trip

    Roeland... hows the trip going? old cars love to go fast!!! drove my 73tii out to Cape Breton and back this summer... loves it at a buck 40 all the way.
  12. Left home Saturday morning. First delay was already at the peace bridge (fort Erie). Spent 2 hours to cross the boarder. Then the rain started and 36 hours later it's still raining non stop. Not the weather you want with an convertible. Also my speedometer stopped working counting but it still tells me the speed. It's Sunday evening and we are close to Cincinnati Ohio. I noticed that grease on my front rims coming out of the wheel bearing. Want to clean the bearings in the morning and put new grease in it. Probably old grease, bad roads, and high speed is not good for a 46y old car.

    There is a car museum in Nashville with European cars that I like to visit. They have a 1938 BMW made by Baur that I like to see. Baur was in business for 100 years doing low volume cars for Mercedes, maybach, BMW and Opel. https://www.lanemotormuseum.org/collection/cars/item/bmw-320-1938

    On mine it's the lower forward mount - the one under the rear sear at the front of the rear subframe. I have the pieces from Germany - just a big job to install and get the geometry right. I'm hoping to get at the floors this week if the weather cools a bit.

    I have to go to London to meet more 02 fans. Only 2 hour drive from Niagara. But first my Nashville TN trip with the 02. Leaving this weekend.

    I fabricated a new upper rear spring perchs and had them welded into place. Two years later and very solid. Sent from my STH100-1 using Tapatalk

    I've been after him for years but he finally realized he wasn't going to do anything to get it roadworthy again (he's 82 and having health issues). This keeps it in the family at least. I have to do both front floors, the inner A pillars and left rear suspension mount. I'm brushing up on my welding skills to prepare for the tough work. I've done the fuel and cooling system hoses and water pump. Ready to start it again.

    How did you get him to part with it? Nice looking car. I love the turbine rims! Welcome to the club!

    Just acquired my '73 from my brother-in-law in Ottawa in June. Too hot to do much over the summer. He bought it new and parked it in his garage in '87. I have it running and am starting some underdog re-furb once the heat dies down. Good to here there a few others in the London area. I may do some reaching out. Unfortunately, it looks better than it is...

    Dundas West sighting

    Now I notice the West Toronto sign on the picture. It will still be fun to meet with group of 02's somewhere.

    4 speed transmission fluid

    Thanks, the car is a '68 - It's actually a 1600-02 that was rebadged and a 2l swap at some point in its life. We only had overheat issues on super-hot days when in traffic - never touched the red but it came close. Before the trip I did several rad flushes - which helped a lot, but it is still a concern... I've been running Ultra 94 which the car seems to really like, but on that trip, especially on the James Bay Road we had terrible gas. The car has never dieseled so much on shut down. Still, I get some dieseling from time to time, so I might have a timing/mixture issue... Gonna get the local BMW carb pro to take a look and if that doesn't give a solid temp I'll probably do an electric fan and a newer rad, but until then I'll give the V-Power a shot on the next tank.

    Watched the complete video. Nice how you filmed everything and even use a drone. I hope the back roads to Nashville will be in better shape then the roads you had. What year is your car? Overheating was something that is a common problem but after i start using shell V-power i don't have any problems anymore.
