do you have 2002, or 2002tii? that makes a difference. I guess the RHD does not make a bit of difference to the alternator- it should be clear of any stuff that is changed for you to drive down there. There is a lot of info on Bosch replacment/upgrade alternators out there- other than the FAQ submission. A standard 2002 can accept several Bosch alternators without miodification, and I have read that some guys have gone to non Bosch, USA big output alternators with a little bit of modification. Unfortuanately, everything I have written/ pictured is for an upgrade to the 45 amp tii alternator to a 65 amp Bosch. My Sahara , though, was upgraded to 65 amps in a second, by a bosch laying around. maybe a picture will reveal something...standard.jpg.....standard.jpg.......standard.jpg .... i am sorry: none of the pics reveals the model number- and my Sahara is parked 30 miles away from me right now. maybe snother board member can give you the exact Bosch upgrade model number and the model car it came from. Mine came from a 320: that is most typical source for upgraded alternator for 2002. i think the 80 amp alternators are coming from 318ti cars. not sure, definately connfirm this. You will need to give a "core" - your old alternator to defray cost. New , ( refurbished" Bosch 65 amp alternator in USA costs around 100 bucks,or less. Good luck- recommend a Google search too for this topic. Alos: go to Roadfly and ask the guys over there. Creighton knows a lot about 2002s and i am sure you will get all the info and model numbers you need quickly over there.

    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
