Mike,

 

There was no original carpet in the trunk of an '02.  None, not even as a dealer accessory.  The two trunk boards were wrapped in gray vinyl and the area between the two wheel wells was covered with a thick gray vinyl often referred to as "elephant skin."  Two narrow side pieces of elephant skin flanked this central area and hid the fuel line.

 

A gray vinyl trunk mat was a dealer accessory but these are rare as hen's teeth.  I have a duplicate copy, custom-fitted to my '76's trunk, of an original mat that I used for years but which turned brittle as stone.

 

Aftermarket suppliers are a different story: everyone did, and a few still do, make trunk carpets.  I'd bet that forum user Esty makes super dooper trunk floor carpets.

 

Regards,

 

Steve

       My 1975 2002 Turbo had one.Pretty sure it was an original.I guess maybe it was an option,like you said.I am helping a friend who is the Original owner of a 74 2002.Car got rear ended and she had it fixed.She swears there was one in the car, but Body Shop misplaced it.If I can't find an Original in Charcoal I will probably have Esty make her one.Anybody have a 2002 that came with Factory Trunk Mat? My CS Coupe has One that came on the car new for sure.it matches interior Carpet

Mike,

 

I honestly don't know about the turbo, with its bi-level trunk, and perhaps it had its own set of dealer accessories.

 

Below, in the first photo, is the vinyl trunk mat listing from a ca. 1972 U.S. accessories brochure.  In the second photo is the mat I purchased at my local dealer in 1973.  By 2011, however, it had dried up and crumbled to dust.  The mat was simply thick, almost greasy-feeling, gray vinyl with a 1/4" foam rubber backing and cheap edging.  Items sank into the mat and hence didn't slip around -- well, as much.

 

The trunk mat, however, was never up-dated to fit U.S. square taillight cars (narrower trunk due to crash reinforcements), and by 1976, when I tried to buy a fresh mat for my fresh car, the trunk mat -- which had been available at least as early as '67 -- was already NLA.

 

And, of course, you're absolutely correct about the big coupes: they had trunk carpets.  But they were in a very different price range!

 

Regards,

 

Steve

Thanks, Mike,

 

And the carpet even has a nice...patina!  So maybe a turbo-only accessory or option.

 

Best regards,

 

Steve

Decades ago my company's office was re-carpeted.  The color was a good match for the '02 interior and I was able to salvage a scrap piece that was big enough to do my trunk and the rear parcel shelf behind the rear seat.  It is sort of an industrial-strength carpet and not suitable for a home.  Perhaps you could find an outlet or a remodeling business with leftover pieces.

    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
