Hi again-

No response last time so I'm trying again. Does anyone know a shop or mechanic that's good with 2002s in the New York/Mass/Vermont area? I have a friend who just bought her first 2002 and I need to find her a good shop to help keep it up. Thanks!

Matt and Dan McGinn's shop (Sportscar Restorations) in Plantsville Connecticut. (Between Danbury and Hartford) They do mostly body restorations, but they know these cars by HEART...and TRULY CARE about them!

Maybe a haul from Albany, but I'd check them out!

Heck! I drove 350 miles to have them do the restoration on my '73 02. Absolutely NO regrets!!!!

In Ballston Spa, NY, go to Quality Foreign Car Care,

ask for the owner, Paul Hicks, his phone number is 518-885-1781. Tell him Tim Laskey sent you. I have used him for years. He helped me sort out some tricky details on my latest project, a 1975 2002 which I swapped a 1989 325is M20 six cyl. into (FAST). He is honest and very competent with BMW's. He does excellent work and his pricing is fair. He only works on the european cars : BMW, Mercedes, volvo, saab,porsche, etc. He has worked on many of my past cars in the past 10-15 years or so. Drop me an email if you need more info. I will give you my phone # & we can talk directly. I live in Saratoga and work in Troy, it would be great to get together to talk 2002's. If you need a hand with yours or maybe some extra parts, I have some left over from my conversion that I no longer need. Good luck with the car. They are a lot of fun.

It's a little drive for you, but they will work on your 2002. I think there's also Eric Kerman someplace in upstate ny..not sure exactly where he's located however.....Kerman Auto Werks is the name of his shop I believe...

Thanks so much Tim! I'm actually out here in San Francisco, but I just found a '73 2002 for a dear friend in Albany. I will send her all of the info you posted and if you'd like to email me your contact info I'll give it to her as well. She's totally new to vintage cars and 2002s, so I'm trying to give her all the help I can. Your car sounds like a monster, got any pics? Cheers!

    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
