just got home from a quick 2 day adventure in Tahoe with the Senior Six Registry gang( Bavarias, 2500s, 3.0s, etc... 4 door people, 6 cylinder people). Anyway, i guess they thought they were going to be able to belittle the token 02 guy's little 4 banger car , lol.... didnt happen ! The A4 stayed with the big dog lead pack on the 160 mile north of the lake back road romp and never was passed by no stinkin 6 banger sedan! I dont think my car quite expected the thorough thrashing it received, but hey, what did I put it together for? Car held its own and then some, staights at 100 + and we all suffered big time brake fade during the day. couple bavs had hiccups of one kind or another , that we were able to fix and the pack all made it back safe and summons -less. Got to say- those Bav. guys sure know how to throw a party: house right on the lake with about 100 beds( it seemed- i slept on mt Costco cot and air matress in sleeping bag on the deck and went to sleep listening to the water lap aganst the rocks and the sound of rocks( ice) hitting glass as one of the boyz poured another.... Fantastic Bar-B-Que after the saturday drive: all in all. a perfect celebration of the pain and pleasure of owning and driving the hell out of Bavaria's finest. LOL., I took the predicted insults and ribbing for owning a 2002( no less 2 of them) , but the car did so well ( i dont think these boyz have ever encountered an A4 before) that i was invited back . Anyway- now that i have seen how it can be done with a pack of 8 cars: i will try to get the top secret map and try to do something similar with an 02 group in the future. We will invite a Bavaria guy to abuse- symmetry must be maintained. Definately, renting a Tahoe ski/summer house is the way to go in the future. Much better to have all under 1 roof enjoying the whole experience together than to be spread out among a dozen motels. Works out to be a lot cheaper too! I have lots of pics i took of the cars on the road while i was strapped in and strying not to pooch my car to get the great shot. Well, the A4 is definately "broken -in" now! So next time you meet a Bavaria owner ask them if they are a member oof the SSR( Senior Six Registry). If yes, then they are probably worth talking car stuff with. Those guys are as possessed about their cars as we are. All great stuff.

    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
