Super excited about this. It's just a quickie spray paint job. But the body isnt in great condition.

Wheels are xxr 002 15x8 zero offset with 195/50's.

IE stage 2 springs with half coil cut in front (needs another half cut off)

Waddya think?

Keep in mind this was a $500 car

I think a zero offset 15 x 8 looks cool. It would also be great for the track with some 225/45-15 tires, but I bet the turning effort would make me opt for narrower tires like a 205/50 on the street. Isn't a 195 a little narrow for that rim width?

It's a tad narrow, I think they say you shouldn't go smaller than 205ish. It is stretched a taaad, but not VW stanced out stupid stretch where it will pop off the bead.

My autox tires are 215/50/13 on zero offset wheels. With sticky v710's it is definitely quite an increase in steering effort at low speeds. I didn't notice much of an increase with the xxr's though.

I seriously can't stop smiling about how she looks :)

Hey Tom! It looks great! Did you respray the '02 yourself? Is it genuine Inka or is it Rustoleum rattle-can orange?? I've gotta know...

Have fun with it!

Thanks Jim!

Don't let the lighting fool you, the whole car is still different shades of inka and rustoleum. The flares were done with rustoleum "real orange"

I think with clear coat on them they would actually be near identical to inka!

    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
