Agree with previous posters--Talbot mirrors look very cool and period, but will need to be mounted in different spots to be useful.  Also, they are even smaller than the original early (68-70) stock outside mirrors so don't provide much rearward vision.  If you're gonna use 'em you should consider finding a larger inside mirror to help compensate--E21, E30, early 5s and 6s have mirrors that pop into the 02 mount and are significantly larger for better rearward vision.  Might as well take advantage of that big rear window!

Here is the best way to mount Talbot mirrors, as shown on my late '73.  Thanks again  to Tom Jones for this great photo just a few hours before my accident.  After using small, flat Talbot mirrors (installed just a couple months after purchasing this car new) I migrated to convex tinted mirrors to help see more in the blind spots.  By the way, I'm getting the useable Talboval mirror ready for the classified section.

i went through this a couple of years ago except i used talbot bullet replicas and i couldnt see S__t and the reason why is because the pedestals are to short and the problem is exasperated on the passanger side. i think if your a really small person you could use talbots on a 2002 but if your like 5'5 and up you will have problems. still they do look nice on 2002. but mirrors are like wheels very subjective eveybody sees something differant for example the this white 2002 above looks ugly with those gold and silver wheels?

    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
