maybe his computer is back on line. try "bobmurphy@the tiiregistry.com" and ask him for a shop recommendation. Or, he lives on Monarda Court- probably in white pages= give him a call - very nice guy/very avid 2002 community person. Good luck. Also- there is a published listing of approved/Certified Independent BMW repair shops available from the BMWCCA for just about every big town/city in USA.

If you've got a tii, there's only one place, really, and that is Bavarian Machine Specialties, off Allen Parkway and Waugh. The owner is Mike Perkins. He did my rebuild and is extremely meticulous and also expensive. He also did extensive work on Bob's tii. To my knowledge, he's the only game in town for a tii. If it's not a tii, then a good bet is Matthews Auto, up off 249. Matt is a great guy, and has a terrific collection of cars, including a turbo, two Alpinas and a real CSL. Dave Trux is the man there, and also the head of the local 02 group. Additionally, there is Texas German Autohaus, though I have no experience with them, and also Bemer.

If you need paint/body, the place everyone with an 02 in Houston goes to Casari's, off 290 North. That's where Bob got his tii done, and me too.

    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
