Hi Everyone,

I've been around the forum for a bit, but haven't posted much. (These new-fangled computers and the information super-highways sure are spiffy though) Basically, my mechanical skills qualify as "knows-enough-to-be-dangerous," but that's about it.

There's a '75 2002 daily driver in the garage, and an old '76 motor will be joining it tomorrow.

My intent is to tinker on the beat-up motor while driving the car, eventually getting to the point where the '76 motor is rebuilt and strong and I can swap it with the tired engine in the '75.

This serious wrenching is all a new process/ambition for an old dude like me, (always wanted to try it, never made the time 'til now) so a local vocational college automotive engine-rebuild class is on the schedule for later this year.

In the meantime, can anyone point me in the right direction for a 2002 SoCal community? The forum here covers Bay Area, but nothing down my way.

Anywho, glad to be here, hope to meet other owners before too long!

    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
