Looking for a 2002 daily driver in CA/AZ

Recommended Posts

Hey Everybody! After months of looking around here I finally registered myself.

I'm just a dopey college kid (20) looking for a nice, solid 02' ride. I've loved them as long as I can remember. I'm feeling my first car is going to be rolling around the corner pretty soon and something I would keep forever would be awesome. I'm looking for a roundie of some sort (setting the bar high already!) in daily driver condition that I could drive cross country in with little-to-no work needed, mechanically at least; with a decent interior and no excessively wacky mods (original is the best!). My budget is between $5000-$6000, sort of tight, but I think I can do it if I find the right deal. I go to school in Northern AZ (Prescott) but I'm currently in SoCal (Orange County) for Spring break and wouldn't mind driving to NorCal or NV, heck even back to AZ to look at something.

I've been looking like crazy for the past half a year or so and haven't come across anything I could practically pursue, but I won't lose hope! If anyone is looking to sell or has info. on something nearby Orange County or Prescott AZ I would appreciate any help!

Thanks in advance!

    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
