i am selling my 1976 BMW 2002, with a 4 speed, sunroof, and it is in very original condition. my son is not interested in taking it over, so this sadly is the next step. SERIOUS Inquiries only, Perry 650-344-0566.

asking $7800 and would consider a partial cash/trade. i am a non-smoker, have no pets, and this car has been serviced and taken care of by Independent Bmw specialists, or the dealer all of its life.

My 17 year old cousin wanted a 2002 bad until he found out that most of them were stick shift. He wanted an automatic.

I bet thats why this kid didn't want it.

That kills me....I couldnt wait to drive a stick! In fact, I LEARNED on a stick. Never looked back...my wife drives automatics, but even she got in my Carrera and pulled off like a pro! I LOVE the control it brings and feel almost "bored" driving an auto....

This subject was recently discussed.


Sounds like his son should be driving a Saturn. I tought both my daughters to drive sticks and they both hate driving automatics now.

Less than 10% of the cars sold in the U.S. market are manual gearbox and that percentage is dropping fast. Driving a stick is a lost art, you would be suprised how many people in their 20's who don't know how to drive a stick. Go to Europe and try to rent a car with an automatic, good luck finding one. One reason I wanted my daughters to learn to drive a stick. I wanted them concentrating on driving instead of talking on the cell or texting. I couldn't believe a recent post by an owner discussing a tiaga tii restoration for his teenage daughter where he replaced the manual gearbox with an automatic instead of teaching his daughter to drive a stickshift. It's his car, he can do what he wants. I just feel that his daughter is missing out on really driving a tii, and besides, guys dig chicks who can drive a stick.

Correction, G-Man! The '98 Saturn SL-1 which I just sold had a very nice 5-speed transmission. The auto. trans. was a $500 add-on, so folks were paying for the 'priviledge' of driving an automatic! Granted, the 5-speeds are more rare.

I remember that 5-speed Camry's weren't uncommon when I shopped them back in '89. Now, I doubt that Toyota offers a manual Camry.

That bratty kid should have learned to drive his dad's '02. I hope his dad isn't caving in and buying him whatever his little heart desires.

This kid is nuts. My first car was a 76 2002 - anthracite w/ tan interior, 4-speed, sunroof. The car was 5 years old when I got it in 1980 when I was 17. Put over 100 k miles on it and sold it in 1990. It cost $6,500.00 when I bought it - expensive but a lot less than a new 320i. Should have kept that car.

One of the best reasons to "convince/push your son into learning on a manual trannie is that all of his friends will not be able to drive the car. My oldest would not learn on a manual. I told her she could drive the Suburban but every time it came home I expected the gas gauge to be above full. It took two weeks,but that settled it. When my youngest came up and we were talking about a car for her I heard her sister say, "just make sure it is a standard shift. It is much cooler"
