WTB: flat top pistons


Recommended Posts

Dont buy used, too much of a crap shoot unless you can inspect/measure.

If I was needing a set of flat tops I would pounce on these. 

NOS Mahle flat tops in 1st oversize with rings, no pins or clips but thats ok, they are pretty hard, your old ones should work.

I know it says 520i but it it fits your 2L M10 block, cause they be the same engine in both cars. I've made a couple of buys from the seller with satisfactory results.


BMW E12 520. Mahle Engine Piston Set w. rings (No Pins). 89.22 mm 1st Oversize. NOS in original box.

How much you asking ?

$100+ shipping.


I also have a set of std bathtubs, not high compression that were used about 500 miles.  Needs a 121 head to use.  I pulled the flat tops to try these, then I got crazy and built up a second engine and neither set were needed.


Flat tops are Mahle, bath tubs are Klobenschmidt.

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
