rear reflectors

I can only speak for my '72.

 

Do not know the answer to the first question.

 

Yes, the lenses are the same.  But, the housings are different.  The side marker housings have a lamp socket and wire exit with a rubber boot.  The marker housings are solid with rubber gaskets.

Illuminated rear side reflectors weren't introduced until (I think) the modell 71 cars in mid-1971, but the rear reflectors were installed beginning sometime in 1970.  The parts book shows a different part number for those base gaskets for the rear reflectors:  63 14 1 353 061 & 062, and they're different part numbers for the gaskets used for the front fender reflectors.  Whether they're still available...check with Blunt.  Chances are pretty good someone on the FAQ has some good used ones that came with damaged for faded reflectors.  

 

Those gaskets all looked the same to me; I was surprised when I checked my parts book and found different numbers.

Bumping this thread.  My reflectors both front and rear quarter are of the type pictured on the right with the wider screw placement.  I for the life of me cannot find these any longer or any information as to what years these were used.  My car is a 69 02.  Does anyone have any thoughts on how to find the new parts or are people drilling a smaller width to use the newer reflector assemblies pictured on the left?  Any comments are appreciated.

Modifying Vern to have the side marker lights in the rear reflector position, they will be wired to act as additional brake lights.

Or you can delete the US spec side marker lights/reflectors for a true Euro spec 02 look. I went this route on my 74 tii.

I think that this a really interesting solution, I would also suggest an additional LED strip on top attached to the upper window gasket since it seems that were programmed to look for the Third Brake Light position for a warning.

 

Many totaled 02's with slight rear damage

    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
