Contact BMW and they can tell you the original colour. Send an email with the VIN to:

 

info.grouparchiv@bmwgroup.com

 

What did BMW Archives report regarding the original color?

 

Regards,

 

Steve

Agave :(:( I don't like that color, so I really would like to paint it Birkal     

Based on your photos, I really don't think your car was painted Agave, unless someone completely stripped it down and painted it the lighter color you received it (Like Bristol).

 

Agave green is a beautiful color on a 2002.

Ok.  Now that's settled I wish you all the best on your project. The car looks very nice and not too rusty from what I can tell in your pictures.  Is the engine the original?  I can't see the casting date clearly on your 121TI cylinder head.

 

Are the Solex carbs in good shape?  There is an Alfa guy on eBay who sells parts for the 40 PHH carburetors if you need something.

Hej thanks Yes now the body is rust free but I change many things on the car .

yes the engine is original, I have totally rebuilt it 

with new pistons new valve springs basically everything is new 😊

and the solex cabs should be ok , but a lot of people tell me to change it to Weber !!

I went from 40 DCOEs back to solex PHHs on my ti.  I like the way it drives with the PHHs better.  There's not a big difference between the two though, except for cold starting where the PHHs are way better.  On the other hand, DCOEs are easier to set up.  I must have pulled the PHHs off a dozen times before getting the accelerator pumps set right.

+1 on the accessibility of the Webers versus Solex.  I like my Solex carbs but also have a set of Webers just in case.

Those look great already.  Complete and not screwed with.  You even have the spring for the synch adjustment.  I couldn't find one and ended up winding one myself.  If you end up having throttle shaft play because of worn bushings, don't hesitate to re-bush them.  I re-bushed mine, it's a straightforward job, and the results are great.

 

PHHs are so cool looking, and so right for the car.

 

Is that a 69 date stamp on your head?
