What Did You Do For Your '02 Today?


Recommended Posts

I see this type of topic on another forum that I visit almost daily its one of the first threads I view. I thought that it would be a good idea for our forum as it's a great way to show the love that we have for our cars whether it be daily maintenance, a project or a major restoration.

I'll start. Nothing major, I have been trying to do at least one thing every day to my newly acquired 72 Tii. Today I ordered some new KugelFischer hoses from Blunt in hopes of installing this weekend and getting the car drivable again!

Renewed the plates for both cars; they're all snuggled in for the winter under nice, soft blankets in the garage, awaiting spring, when both cars will receive nice new urethane rear swaybar bushings.


Too cold to do much of anything in the garage right now...

Hey Evbimmer,


Word of warning.  At the KF pump end of the fuel lines, in the bottom of the holes in the pump are "crush" washers.  Meant to be used only once.  If you're lucky you may get a good seal with the old ones, but it is wise to buy new ones when re-installing. Ask me how I know.  If you tighten the fitting and still have leakage, it's probably because the washer/seal is too flat or misshapened.


Good luck.

    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
