RHD Heater Slide Control Chrome Cover (Mystery!!!)

Guest Anonymous

I have what appears to be a very weird (i.e. "rare") oddity....it's a NEW chrome dual slide control panel for an early '02 dash that the heater control knobs fit through. The thing that is "weird" about this piece, is the two little white triangles that represent the "park" or "off" position are located on the "wrong side" of the slots in the chrome....sooooo, I'm wondering if this thing is made for a Right Hand Drive '02?

I went to install it this past weekend on Hugo's dash (that I reinstalled after about 1.5 years of waiting), and then the piece was "different" than the old one. I know this piece came from Germany, so I'm thinking (and so does Mike Self) that it might be for a RHD '02.

Neither of us has ever seen one before.....anyone on the list from across the ponds that can shoot me a pic of theirs? I'll gladly send a pic to anyone that might be able to help me I.D. this part. Does anyone know what the chrome covers look like on a RHD '02? I looked through my books but the steering wheel was always in the way of the covers, so I couldn't get a good luck.

Help me solve this mystery...

    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
