  1. What's new in this club
  2. After what is probably a dozen arguments with my mechanic on Long Island, where he’s worked on every car but mine, I may be going to Saratoga for the summer and would gladly have the work done there. Are there any locals that have 2002 speciality mechanics that they like? I don’t need it, yet, but experience with swaps and fab work would be great. Thanks for any info. Seth
  3. My name is Jeff Gomon. I am Three things, a 2002 owner, South Central Region VP/National Board Member and lastly, in need of your help. Terry Sayther has approached the Board and requested the formation of a stand alone non-geographical BMW CCA 2002 chapter. This chapter would allow for greater communication of 2002 owners and groups everywhere. To get things started signatures from 250 members are needed for the chapter petition. We are over 1/2 way there and need your help. Further, once the chapter has its charter, we will hold elections for a Board and Area "Governors" in all regions. Follow the link below for more info and sign the petition. Below is Terry's message. Thank you!! ------------------------------------------------------------- "We're working our way toward the 250 signatures we need to form a 2002 Chapter of the BMW CCA, and we are over half way there! But…that was the easy half. We need more that a hundred additional CCA Member signatures to meet the requirement. SO---I'd like all of you to think of additional ways we might get more people to sign up, rejoin the club so that you can sign up, give membership gifts so that your friends can sign up, and spread the word! Go to https://2002sforever.net/sign-the-petition/ and sign up now! We are under-represented on the west coast---somebody get those guys motivated, please If you've been procrastinating---stop that! Sign up today. Do it! Many thanks for those of you out there who have been spreading the word and encouraging friends. We appreciate your efforts!

  4. Haven't enjoyed not having my '02 for the last month....and I didn't like coming in repping for the Alfisti. I'm an 02er first and foremost. Looking forward to the next gathering.
  5. Hopefully next time u can bring your car! Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  6. Didn't get to meet everyone. Didn't get any donuts. Didn't get any coffee. Didn't get to bring my 02. Did get to see some awesome cars. Did get to expand my community and meet some great people. Once a year doesn't seem like enough. Good times!
  7. Here's some photos from today: https://photos.app.goo.gl/sKGMviDCgcyD8bWi8
  8. I'm very excited for Sunday. Weather is looking good so far! We got donuts and coffee covered. See you all then!
  9. Here's a little flyer I made that you all can post on social media, if you want.
  10. Sounds good to me, can distribute the flyer via FB/IG Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  11. Looks like we have a winner: 9/22. Let's lock that in, and maybe keep 9/29 (second most votes) as a rain date? I can create a flyer that we can then use to spread the word further on other channels.
  12. Good event. Good people. Erik is right, lets keep this going. And thanks to Ricky too. If the 15th is not picked, I recommend going to Caffeine and Carburetors in New Canaan that day. Great event. Check out the web site.
  13. So far, Sunday 9/29 got the most votes (3). Anyone else want to chime in on picking a date? >> https://doodle.com/poll/8zv26cwuwikudqgq
  14. Hi all, I think we all agree that last year's 2002 meetup at Singlecut Beersmiths was a great time. I spoke with Rich and he'd love to host us again on a Sunday this September. There's five Sundays in September, so I figured we do a little poll to find the one that works best for most. Please check it out and enter your preferences. Ideally you all select as many Sundays as would work for you. https://doodle.com/poll/8zv26cwuwikudqgq Let's do it! –Erik
  15. Will be out of town but we should have another meet up soon Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  16. Recently had pleasant experiences with these two shops: General mechanic: Andre DiSalvo, proprietor at Barnett Auto Repair in LIC. Wheel alignment: Marbren Tire, also in LIC.
  17. Hey all, CarPark NYC is putting together another cars & coffee, this time at Industry City in south west Brooklyn. DM them on Instagram to ask for a spot. Their last few editions were really fun - here's some coverage on Petrolicious from the May event: https://petrolicious.com/articles/rain-or-shine-carpark-nyc-puts-on-an-excellent-car-show-in-the-heart-of-brooklyn Maybe I'll see some of you guys there! Cheers, Erik
  18. looking for a radiator for my 68. if anyone has one they'd part with, let me know. Im in Queens. Thanks
  19. Anyone else got accepted and will be there with their car this Sunday morning? Weather is looking dry and decent. I met up with Jeff (who organized it) at a happy hour over at Zürich Classic Motors this week. He said about 100 cars are registered, with plenty of old BMWs in the mix. I'll see you there!
  20. I filled out their reg form. Not sure if they'll accept me again. But last year was fun!
  21. I’ve actually been super busy, but mostly lazy, and haven’t reached out. (I also have a buddy whose friend runs an out-of-state shop, who may be able to do it if I bring the prefabbes mounts. I think Manimal is brewing something up.) I may want to do an M20 swap, also, and the transmission housing between the two 4-speeds will be different, so I might do them together. I want to drain ALL of the fluids from the car as it sits, change the break pads, put it back together, check the engine, and then reevaluate my future plans. I’ll update it here if I do anything.
  22. I see this post is a little old but am just seeing it, did you find out if theyll do the work for you i live nearby and always see 2002s in the lot
  23. Id be happy to help lets figure out when Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  24. Hi all, Me and Liesel are slowing coming out of hibernation. I need to tackle a couple of things for the season and am, quite honestly, a bit anxious to tackle them by myself, due to lack of experience and fear of "improving for the worse" if I go at it by myself. Who of you in NYC would be willing and able to spend a weekend day with me to tackle these: Timing and carb tune improvements to get car to start cold on its own and reliably without starter fluid. I have a timing light (which I admit I never used), but no exhaust analysis equipment Carb is a brand new Weber 32/36 (electric choke) from Pierce Manifolds, supposedly pre-tuned for a 2002 Replacing leaky parts inside one of the rear drum brakes, do a complete flush (so I can upgrade from DOT 3/4 to DOT 5) I don't have the knowledge or tools to safely disassemble and reassemble a drum break, or to power flush the circuit. Got a private garage with power, floor jack, jack stands and basic tools. Open to discussing different ways of making it up to you. Went to a nearby shop the other day (M-Spec Performance), and they don't touch carbs and also charge $160/hr for labor... I'd feel stupid spending a fortune on something that could be trivial after all. Help Thanks! Erik
