2002 car history


Burk Clark

Recommended Posts

Go to the Registry section to see if your newly acquired car is there.  There's also someone on the FAQ that tracks 2002s as they change hands, so perhaps your car is in his data base...and I'll bet he or someone who knows him will respond to your post.  

 

And BTW, welcome to the 02 fraternity/sorority!

And email BMW Group Archives (hdz.info@bmwgroup.com) with your car’s VIN, and your engine’s engine number if it’s different from the VIN, and request their data on the car(s).

 

It’s a critical starting point.

 

But manage your expectations, because 7-digit VIN’s pre-date all the modern applications like Carfax! So tracking is limited to @02Les, and sheer luck.

 

Examine your car carefully, for service stickers, service plaques (as are often found on radiators), and receipts lost in inaccessible crevices!

 

Regards,

 

Steve

    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
