Curious to know what sticks out to you, besides the speedo needle & its noise as discussed in that other thread. 

 

Perhaps the stone cold fast idle is wee bit high but it does come down when warm. So I know the choke is set up and working.

The Bristol engine bay sticks out to me. 

 

And the fuel filter upstream of the fuel pump.

 

Not to mention the missing rollers on the hood hold-down bar.

 

And the turn signal stalk is on the wrong side :P

 

The antenna is on the wrong pillar.

 

I do like the paintless trunk roundel. 

 

The gas gauge grounds are bad

 

Driver is suspect as well.

 

:P

Why is the engine idling at 2000rpm?

 

The door buzzer is actually hooked up and working.

 

Sounds like the driveshaft shaft center bearing and/or guibo is bad.

Naw, see the above.  The fast idle at stone cold start up is as I stated a wee bit high.  It idles just fine off choke.

Oh Ray! 

It's Polaris not Bristol. Fuel filters? I smoke Pal Mal's up stream of my lungs so it's just fine for a carburetor.  

 

As for rollers, well that's just how I roll

Says who?  The dealer installed these wherever they wanted.  Mine is on the passenger side A pillar.

Hard to adjust from the driver seat. Wrong pillar.

 

Unless you're in the UK  🤪

Difficult to tell from the video if the rear window defrost is working.

    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
