many other didn't make it to print, I think Mr.

.. after reading this past months Roundels, it seems that readers do not want to hear from drivers schools, racing and old Bimmers. The club is made by enthusiasts who write about what they like.

But the funny thing is that the same people complaining about articles on racing or 2002s will never write anything or organize any event. They want to be served... Screw them.

as BMW was almost bought by AMC just before the 1500 was introduced, 1962 or so. 1500-2000tii 4 door bimmers resurrected BMW, then the rest is "history", with the 1600-2002's. I read those letters a couple of days ago, Michael's, John Weese's, and a few others.

The squeaky wheels are "tired" of Roundel's attention to everything that the Roundel/Enthusiast Magazine really represents- but they really don't provide an alternative subject(s), no less an actual article. What good would it do to dedicate page after page to Big 5 and Big 7 repair? ( all thise cars go directly to the dealer's computer analysis room/machine)Owners rarely do anythng to them, not even change the oil. I dont get it: i always assoiciated history with enthusiasm for a hobby.I thought race results would make the member proud that the Marque was winning.ETC. Ya- send them the pretty publications with the luggage and the jackets and key rings- that might quiet the herd. But, then again, my perspective is skewed- I live in an area where new BMWs are thick as flies along with new Porsches and Mercedes, and Audis. Only Dinan, Schnitzer, AMG, and S cars stand out. It is high dollar German car heaven in the Bay Area. BUT: the 30 plus year old 02s get the smiles and the thumbs- up and the pedestrians, slowing down to look at the car all the way across the cross-walk, always with a smile. That really makes the E46-whatever, trying to make a left turn ,pissed-off!, lol

You know, I just bought a E28 535i and, I couldn't be happier. BMW had some legs but now, its just another 'branding' example of over extending the market and selling trinkets to the masses.

I was just down at the parts counter and I am just amazed at all the paraphernalia! Like a strange head shop man.....

    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
