I'm 20. I remember being 15 on a vintage motorcycle forum and being the youngest around. Long story short, the years go by very fast. 

You're likely one of the youngest 02ers who owns there own car, but many 02 owners have kids that help them wrench. Either way, enjoy it to the hilt and don't be afraid to ask for help. Also don't be afraid to own up to your mistakes; there will be plenty.

Wow, 16 years old... Been quite a few years since I was that age.

 

Let's see now; it was in the Spring of 1968, I was 16 and in my junior year of High School.  That's when I first read about the BMW 2002 in Car & Driver's April 1968 issue.  Had to wait until Dec of '72 when I an old man of 21 before I could afford to buy one.  Fast forward 41 years:  Bought my latest, a '72 2002, about a year ago, and although I'm now officially an Olde Pharte of 62, I swear I still feel young again every time I get behind the wheel. There's just something about these cars...!!!!

 

Nesset, I hope this is the beginning of a lifetime of fun and joy for you.

 

Hopefully, some time in the future, you'll also look back on these days with a big sh*t-eating grin!!!

 

Enjoy!

I was a hair over 16 when I got my 02 as a present from my Dad (I thought I was going to have to pay for it :P). Mostly because I had just enough money to make it run again. Roadworthy was another story... Yay 20+ year old Michelin XAS's! Did like 3000 miles on those :P 

 

Now a days I'm a 20 year old (Jan 8th B-day) College student studying engineering at Central Wa. Me and my 02 have been all over the place together :)

I already enjoy my car more than any other possession I've ever had. I can tell I already have a lifetime of 2002 love ahead. I got my dad into it too. Before he drove my 2002 he thought BMW's were crap. Now he wants one haha. The M10 is one bullet proof motor...
