Hi everyone,

 

while searching for some photos on my computer I just stumbled across these and thought they might be worth sharing. First ever made 2000 touring automatic does still exist and over all isn´t in a too bad shape.

Resides in a collection in Germany and is waiting for restöration.

 

Best regards, Lars.

First there was the love affair for Inka. Now it has moved on to Bristol. When does Sahara get its turn? HA!

What about Inka and Verona combined with Nevada, then all changed to Riviera?  Do these colors make my car more valuable?

Jim: Perhaps you can turn it into a Harlequin version 2002. Cram as many colors in as you can! It would be a massive hit.

The VIN decoder provided by the BMW 2002 Club of Columbia provides a range of May through December 1971 for VIN 3400001.

 

As you, no doubt, are aware, the touring model appeared approximately with the emergence of the substantial, but largely cosmetic, upgrade known as the Modell 71 (April 1971).

 

My gut, which is only occasionally correct, suggests the first automatic version probably appeared closer to May 1971 than to December 1971!

 

Regards,

 

Steve

This what I have from various sources.

 

LHD 2000 Touring mod 71 - April 1971 to Aug 1973

RHD 2000 Touring mod 71 - Sep 1971 to Aug 1973

LHD 2000tii Touring mod 71 - Apr 1971 (two sources state Jan '71) to Aug 1973

LHD 2000A Touring mod 71 - May 1971 to Sep 1972

LHD 1800 Touring mod 71 - Oct 1971 to Aug 1973

LHD 1600 Touring mod 71 - Apr '71 to Aug 1973

 

Mod 73 for all above (except 1600 Touring) began Aug 1973 and ended Apr 1974.

 

If anyone knows of any errors here, please let me know.
