Excellent, great colour. Where in the UK are you?


I don't know if the volvo vented option is better or worse than the tii vented option, but this is what I found. Out of these 13" options only the borrani steel fitted. The plain steel is a 14" NK wheel. A 5mm spacer sorted them all and I didn't get the grinder out to see if I could safely clearance the calipers.


Not very useful other than elimination 🙂 Have you tried your minilites?

I"m running 13" ATS classics. The caliper mounting holes are slotted and I think I needed 3mm spacer and some slight grinding at critical places. It's tight. Some wheels can be fitted while others can't.

Racing is Life - everything before and after is just waiting!

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
