73 2002 For Sale for $27,500


Recommended Posts

I spoke to the owner.  Not the most pleasant guy in the world. Asked about AC, replaced cluster and some other items. He basically danced around every question.

Found a link to his Towing company and Yelp comments...this guy runs a great company !!

Does the fuel filler, intake system, front bumper brackets, window tint, strut spacers and cluster represent 2% of a 2002?  ("This 1973 BMW 2002 is 98% original.")


Maybe I'm just too pedantic, but I never understand why sellers make quantifiable statements with no basis in reality.  It's a nice looking car; if actual condition matches appearance (yeah, I know that's a huge leap) then there's plenty to talk about without spouting off lines like that.

I can only add that I purchased an NOS one-piece dashboard from this guy.  He does know something about '02's and the dashboard I purchased was exactly as advertised.  There were no issues on that limited-scope purchase.


At the same time, I am bothered when anyone -- even an original owner -- makes a claim about a vehicle's "original percentage" because so much is changed on any vehicle over 40 years of use/storage/whatever.  Before I, mostly by accident, became a 40-year-owner of my '76, I might have fallen into the "98% original" ridiculousness but my four volumes of receipts -- that's right hundreds of individual receipts stretching from the purchase date until this week -- show that even highly-original cars, like by '76, are definitely NOT 98% original!


I would certainly add to the list of changes the steel rims, the left front grille, and the rear-view mirrors -- the rims appear to be e21 5 1/2" or, at minimum, square taillight 5" rims, the left grille should be "shallow" like the right grille, and the original driver's mirror was trapezoid style on a '73 (with a dealer-optioned passenger mirror in the trapezoid style).  This is all easy to stuff to fix -- if you even care -- but suggests, as Mike points out above, that a fixed percentage, like 98%, distorts reality.

we can all complain about this sort of seller-and there will be many more to come-as eBay/BAT/forum lurkers see prices on the rise. Quality aside; as pictures can lie, shinny painted cars are gonna be inflated and pimped via the internet. 


Golden rule go see it in person before you buy. 


Stop the INSANITY! Or at least run it up until I sell my tii. 


But what do I know

    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
