Anyone have info on this conversion? I am wondering what exactly is involved and would like impressions of people that have done it. Is it worth the added work? Is the ratio of the 320i rack any quicker than the stock 02 steering box? Any and all info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

...any different for a LHD car, but you guys answered my questions on the chat last night. Doesn't look too hard. From what I understand, you use the steering rack and the complete steering column from the 320i, and bracketry(like Nick Vyse's car) needs to be welded to the subframe to hold the rack in place. I guess the E21 steering column bolts up to the 2002 column. The only question that remains is how does the steering rack attack to the struts and rest of the steering equipment? Does it simply bolt on? Or is there anything else that needs to be fabricated to make it work? Haven't seen detailed pics of that part of the install. Anyway, Thanks Kris, Rob, and Cam_A for the info! Now I have 1 more mod to add to the list for my '72. =)

    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
