you missed my point completely, the auction is a false bid from a bogus buyer. Not to worry as it has not yet hit the reserve.

Just to clarify this, replacing a tii nose with a "snorkel" nose has no negative effects to exterior cosmetics or structural integrity. It's just a cosmetic difference in the engine bay. Obviously it signals that the nose had to be replaced (except for the rare stock snorkel tii's), but that was fairly common. If a tii does not have a snorkel nose, it doesn't mean it was never replaced.

Turf or Manilia USA 2002s, but we know of several painted that color from the factory, yet those colors aren't cataloged in any BMW sales literature. Go figure... Like Jerry said, they played fast and loose--and they sure weren't gonna stop the assembly line just because they didn't have a "no snorkle" nose panel for a tii...

Cheers

Mike

To bad the dealers back in the '70s didn't document the shipping/transporting repairs they had to make before the cars were sold(original).

snorkle and non-snorkle, depending on what nose was being used that day on the production line.
