Wallet Detector


Recommended Posts

Emissions sensor, if your car is de-smogged then you don't need it. if you car is not de-smogged then you need to de-smog it as that part is extremely expensive and pretty much useless.


So what I am saying is that money goes in that hole but it doesn't have to.

since it is open i guess i should plug it with a wad of twenties or something eh?


Haha, that might make your car happy. but you don't need to plug it with anything, it doesn't open anything up, I think it measures the air temperature below your intake manifold or maybe the temp of the manifold itself but leaving it open will not hurt anything and there is no benefit to plugging it up.

Oh, boy, there was a failsafe to detect tampering with that detector...


...it's going to do something unexpected just when you don't expect it.


If it was mine, I'd get the bypass plug that was supplied in countries like Monaco or

Saudi Arabia, where to even ask the question was considered unspeakably gauche...

    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
