... against advice of not going at night, I went

anyway. I guess I just wanted to take a look to see

if I'd even want to go back for closer look with a

friend who really knows what to look for.

It was nice. There was one 3" by 3" rust spot over

the left rear tire and some pretty signifigant flaws in

the paint, which wouldn't be a huge deal since my

brother does auto detailing.

It runs well, no smoke coming from the engine and

it started right up. The engine was also pretty


The interior was cherry except for a tiny 1/4" divit in

the back. No cracks in the dash or anything. The

door panels were still in tact, but there were

speakers put in in the back.

Though the price is right, I just didn't get that

feeling like I had to leave with that car.

I'd prefer a ti or tii to the carb.

I've looked on Roadfly, craigslist, bimmer brothers

and in the paper - any other suggestions of where

would be a good place to look ?

So YOU are my competition for the right 2002 in the Bay Area! I was also thinking about checking out the '73 you saw last night.

You might also try:


But it seems as though it is not updated regularly. I've called about a couple cars that had already been sold.

www.buggybank.com currently has a '76 and had a '74 for a long time.

Good luck!

take your time and find what you really want. There are actually lotsa 02s out there (esp in CA). You'll find "your" car and it'll speak to you! Took me two years to find my sunroof 73...and that was in 1976!

    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
