I may have them do my shock towers if not DIY https://www.reggiesmotorworks.com/ Mostly Swaps and turbos but in Michican, try Classic Daily for a referral http://www.classicdaily.net/gallery/
  3. Would like to find someone closer than Chicago who knows '02s well.

    2/20 2016 tech session

    Is there a regular calendar of tech sessions? Or is this just a once-in-a-while event? Just moved to Chicago and am looking for 2002 activities!
  6. Don't forget there is a car chow at Autobahn Country Club on May 21 in conjunction with the Windy City BMW HPDE that weekend. We hope to see a number of 02's in the show! For details and to register visit http://savethedate.windycitybmw.com/car-show/

    Thanks man, shop is called Region Motors out of Hobart,IN or Hebron,IN keep mixing those up. Lots of mixed feelings from others on that shop (based on reviews)... But really had no issues besides them taking it longer than promised. They kept me updated pretty much every end of the day with pics of what they've done and so on, so I have records exactly what was done to the body from day one, whenever i decide to sell the car (probably not soon lol).

    I'm picking it up tomorrow afternoon, finally... The shop is in Indiana, they mainly do old car restorations, muscle cars and so on. My BMW project was a lot of work, lots of welding, metal work, enormous amounts of surface rust throughout the body, shock tower rust, spare tire well, etc, etc.... I didn't do the inside car paint yet though, just outside so it wasn't full body resto... He are some before/after pics:

    Hi - I joined recently too. Nobody really monitors this site, all the communication is on Face Book. You should join Facebook group "Chicago '02 group". Good group of people in the club. Everyone's car needs some sort of work, you look like yours will keep you busy

    Hi guys, Just wanted to say hi to everyone here. Bought my 74 BMW 2002 in November here in Chicago. Didn't have a clue what I'm getting myself into. Was able to start it up from a long time hibernation. Drove it couple of miles and fell absolutely in love with it. Currently the car is in a shop, for major body work... Turned out it needed much more than I originally thought it will. Lots of metal work and so on... Probably would been better of selling it and buying a better one, but decided to go ahead and try to save it. The car will be out of the body shop possibly sometime next week already. Can't wait to get it back and start learning/working on some of the stuff my self. Definitely interested in meeting others in this group with their '02s in the spring! Also interested in going to those Tech Sessions at "The Werk Shop"! Here are some pics of my '02 before it went to the bodyshop -

  17. Hi All. I have a pair of new, never mounted dark gray 13 x 7 inch VTO wheels. Zero offset, and obviously 4 x 100 bolt pattern. I got them last season and then wound up using some other wheels for vintage racing. They were $765 new including shipping last year. Respectable offers welcome. Thanks, Jeff Ah, I meant that I have a set of four...not just a pair!

    Keep at it man. You'll find that urban owners sometimes tend to stay "indoors". I have felt the same emotion that you are feeling. Don't let low morale for driving distances, to go driving, "curb" your spirits for the scene in general.
