Looking at some E30 Style 5 Wheels for my 74 2002, will they work?  Description says "Set of 4 oem style 5 basket weaves with original metal bbs center caps 14x6" .  Will that work and is $400 for a set of 4 reasonable?  No tires.  Thank you all.

They are 14x6.5", not 14x6".  Careful with tire sizes and level of suspension drop, as some people do get some rubbing.

and the 325IX, I had one.


 

The ix E30 also were 4x100, my statement is correct. They did use a much more positive offset wheel than the standard E30. It was also a 15 inch wheel similar in looks to the 15 inch wheels E30s got in the rest of the world got.

All E30s except for M3 had 4 x 100 wheels.

 

Yes, a 14 x 6.5 wheel off a 325is will fit on a 2002

Not quite right - I believe only the 4 cylinder variants had 4x100 (I have two of these cars). 6 cylinder e30s have the 5 lug.

 

There is also a 15" 4x100 rim that is nice, but only available in Europe and so pricey here (but obtainable).

Still not right...All non-M3 e30's were 4 lug. The iX also had 4 lug, but with the wrong offset for a 2002.

Roger that, thanks - I was under the impression that 325 e30s were 5 lug rims! Must be all the folks doing hub swaps. Appreciate the clarification!

A radiator shop is a good place to take a leak.

 

I have no idea what I'm doing but I know I'm really good at it.

    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
