Anyone Know this Seller

Recommended Posts

Okay, this is not 2002 related but it will get the most attention. My 76 2002 has been gone for six months, replaced by a 1972 Bavaria. I am in need of a rear passenger door and a factory manual(were there different manuals for coupes and Bavarias?). My little group, the Rocket dogs has 15 or so 2002 owners so I still pay attention.


Now to my question. I put up a post a couple of days ago about a rear passenger door and factory manual for the Bavaria.  Up pops Ricky Fowler with a door and a manual. I ask for photos. His response, I am in a wheel chair and can't get to the manual. Now the wheel chair and his inability to get to the manual triggers something in past history with this guy. I believe I posted a query here and I am pretty sure the reponse was . Scammer.  If he is legit, my deep apologies. But having been scammed for some 2002 parts I am now extra careful and vett sellers as much as possible. 


Please reply here or to my email:   coupecs@aol.com

Spot on guys. Thanks for responding. How can we scam him?


My body guy called tonight. He will start to work on the existing door. We will see what happens. A total of five doors have been in play. e9coupe has been quite helpful. I owned four of those, two were parts, bought in the days when a Community College teacher could afford them. I am 82.


Yes, Bavarias are rare and an acquired taste. We acquired with our first in 1983. Followed by four more, two Si s, one a rusted parts car, then another parts car and finally this pristine 72 in Agave from Steve Petersen of BluntTech.

Decent restoration got all the rust and a good respray in original. Interior and trunk in perfect original condition.


Steve didn't want his mother(he bought it for her) to have to, "dick around with carburators." He installed a B35 motor and automatic transmission from a 1992 five series. Moves right along.


Washing the Bavaria back in late Aug. I noticed a large dent in passenger rear door. Eventually filed a claim with State Farm where it was insured as a Classic for $20,000. After dicking around with SF for two and half months we have limped to a fine conclusion for me. I buy the car from SF for $5,500. They send me a check for $16,136.(something about fees?? who knows). My expert body guy puts the car good as new for $8,000. You do the math. 


You may remember Lilli, our all original 87,000 mile 76 Chamonix 2002 acquired at the start of Covid from JMinPDX on e9coupe.  Had to sell her 'cause I did not realize 2002s never came with power steering. And my wife can no longer turn a 2002.  You will find her on BaT, sold in Aug of '23 for $34,500.  Lovely, lovely car.


And again, thanks,

No photo, no sale. There's a 356 parts guy on Pelican that verifies his cars/parts with a picture of him and the buyers name on a piece of paper he's holding.

    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
