02 In the Snow - UK

Recommended Posts

Snow in SE England today, sadly my newly restored 02 is stuck outside (I know, I know - it's now under a car cover), still lots to do as disapointed with the restoration and mechanical rebuild. More images on my site, but in the meantime - image_zps6bc6a126.jpg


Hopefully soon I'll be driving an 02 once again, been too long.

Keep 02ing.

Hi Richard,

As an Aussie living on London it was a bit of a thrill to see some snow! Where abouts are you based? I'm unfortunately 02-less over here while my car is tucked away in Melbourne - I couldn't bare to part with it!

I actually wanted to ask you a question on the white square tail tii car you owned some time back and the Recaro seats (genuine 2002 Recaro's I think I read?). Do you have any images of them still?

Many thanks

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
