Are there any parts that could be used as upgrade parts from a mid-80s 318i for my '73 tii? The list (of things to pull) as I think would be as follows:

-Fuel Injection System

-Brake System (MC, Calipers, rotors, backing plates)

-Rear Diff (?)

-Transmission (it would be an electro speedo, but is there any way to refit a mechanical??)

-anything else??

Most of the direct interchange / upgrade parts so far as driveline and brake upgrades come from the 320 series (Early front hubs, '77 vented rotors, Getrag 245 OD 5 speeds, and, from iS models, 3:90 limited slip diff's and Recaro seats) - to the best of my knowledge none of the E30's suspension and driveline parts (aside from the M10 engine and some accessories) can be fitted to the '02 chassis without major work.

In addition, if your tii still has it's engine complete and intact, by installing the injection from a 318 you'd be eliminating the main component that makes a tii what it is - the k-fisch injection system.

Strictly personal opinion, but if you want to embark on an extensive, far-reaching modification program, you might be better served by finding a clean standard round light car to start with.

    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
