He works for insurance companies and was sked to check for the price of a set of 15" Alpina wheels. he asked me if I knew a guy called Giorgio. Yes, I did, of course. Well, what happenned is that the guy's 1972 Euro Tii was found laying on the gravel, without its 4 Alpina wheels. The rockers, nose panel, bumpers were all scratched and banged. Only problem is that the whole car comes from a 6 year restoration. Bare metal shell, rechromed bumpers, etc. It hurts.

They have been out of production for about 10 years now and the 15x7's which are ~400 euros each do not fit well without flares.

Although walloth und nesch says they have 15X6 when you call them it turns out they do not.

He told me that a fellow from Vancouver who just happened to buy Sherman Martinez's Alpina is coming to Montreal soon and that he is bringing him a set of 15 x 6.

    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
