  6. Does anyone know of an 02 or 3.0cs specialist that can handle bodywork in the NYC Tri-State area? I want to put the front bumper on my 3.0 which has only a spoiler on it now. Must cut into the valance, Eg. I have the bumper and bracket parts. thanks
  7. All customers from Levent (Guttenparts) are using AMS Autowerks in Edison, he has a full shop and has worked on all my BMW's but he has also worked on my Ferrari, I wouldn't take my cars to anyone else, except Tyspeed from Jacskon NJ who specializes on BMW's only.
  8. Any interest in a get together and drive around NYC. A nice Sunday morning maybe? I'll bring the coffee and provide a venue and an invigorating drive. Please see some comments.
  9. hey all - been a few years since this convo got any action so, wondering if anyone here has a stellar mechanic/shop recco for the NY/LI/NJ area? have a great alignment spot in brooklyn and used to have a great everything shop out in Montclair, NJ but he lost the lease a while back and decided to retire. appreciate any tips. m
  10. 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
  11. 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!

  12. 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.
  13. Hopefully next time u can bring your car! Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  14. 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!
  15. Here's some photos from today: https://photos.app.goo.gl/sKGMviDCgcyD8bWi8
  16. I'm very excited for Sunday. Weather is looking good so far! We got donuts and coffee covered. See you all then!
  17. Here's a little flyer I made that you all can post on social media, if you want.
  18. Sounds good to me, can distribute the flyer via FB/IG Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. Will be out of town but we should have another meet up soon Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
