Hey Steve K! Custom Radiator Information

I saw your post asking about custom radiators for the '02. I just had one made by Ron Davis Racing in Arizona and it is a work of art! They were also very nice and easy to work with and had it done within 2 weeks of the order. The potentially good news for you is that I paid a premium for the design of the radiator (as it was the first one they had done) and so you will definitely get a better deal, now that they already have it all spec'd out. If you are interested, let me know and I'll make a call on your behalf...

Best,

Coop

FYI, The radiator that Ron Davis Racing (http://www.rondavisracing.com/) made for me was modelled from a 320i unit, which I sent them. However, the radiator that they made is a totally custom, all-aluminum unit that is truly a work of art. It also dropped my temps a good 15 degrees and significantly narrowed the temperature margins. The radiator cost me $780 (OUCH!) but they explained this was because it was a one-off and the first they had ever made. They told me that any future radiators would be considerably cheaper...I would guess about $550. If anyone is interested, I would be happy to call my contact there and get the info...Who knows, perhaps I could even put together a group buy if there is enough interest.

Best,

Coop

    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
