Sales Brochures

Anyone know anything about either of these '02 sales brochures I stumbled on over the weekend?

The first (car on cover) is written in English, but appears to be for EU market based on flat turn signals, rear plate light in the bumper, etc., etc., plus they list the 1602 and 1802 as available versions along with the 2002 base and tii. No date on it, but all roundies with black dashes.

The second (white cover) is also in English and appears to be for the U.S. market based on the usual clues and only the 2002 base and tii specs listed in the back. Again no date, but all roundies so I'm guessing 72/73?

Also picked up the Mobile Traditions special addition catalog they put out back in 2002 full of history and all of the '02 related paraphernalia they sell (hats, pens, pins, prints, models, etc). Some of them are cool. I'm just hoping they are not all NLA!

I have searched them both carefully and no recognizable dates. On the back or inside back at the bottom both say "Printed in Western Germany" and below that "Order no 01 81 9790 011" on the first one, and "Order Number 01 869 791 006" on the second. Different printer maybe?

I have a copy of the second catalogue, with the white cover announcing the 2002 and the 2002tii.  It, like many of the early '70's BMW catalogues I have seen, is undated.  I haven't decided how to date it: '72 or '73.  Or was it, like the two '75-'76 catalogues, designed to last for a couple years?  The tii engine illustrated has plastic intake runners, so that says '72.  But aren't those '73-style front bumper guards (or did Euro versions, which may be pictured, have these guards before '73?)?  And what about the tii's HP and compression?  Aren't 125 HP and 9.0:1 CR indicative of '73 cars?
