Question from a new member looking at a 2002


Recommended Posts

Greetings all,


I recently joined up here since I have an interest in either acquiring a 2002 or doing a retso-mod project. I live in Nashua, NH, and was wondering if there are any resources in the area?

Are there any recommended books that I could consult? I see the "Gold Portfolio" book mentioned a bit that can be acquired for about $35-40.


I'm at the stage where I have questions about cost and time. There's a well-known BMW shop, 3D Auto Works, who I approached but he said they don't do anything that big. I wasn't sure who

else to ask that I could run some questions through. I lack access to a full garage but a friend of mine in NY has one, and he's currently restoring a '74 that was his mom's car, also the one

I got my first experience in. If I had my choice, I'd like to take a descent condition one and "modernize" it, ie: upgrade to LED where possible, properly coat the underbody with a rust-preventer. I've done work on a car before, so I'm experienced with some modifications.

Do an amazon search for BMW 2002, buy the red Haynes manual & Mike MaCartneys book, read it twice.


If you plan to drive a 2002 year round in the Northeast DON"T, it will dissolve faster than you can keep up. If you want a winter car buy something else please, like an 1985-'89 E30 or a Toyota or a Honda or anything else.


Look for a car on ebay or craigslist.
