Help finding quality carpet kit


70BMW02

Recommended Posts

I am trying to find a carpet kit for my 70 2002. Currently it has a beat up 15 piece carpet kit. I know there is a one piece kit but i have been told to go with the 15 piece. Does anyone have a good site they can suggest to order one from?

Thank you,

Travis

nice.

i agree...i haven't see the set BLUNT'S selling, so i can't comment....but i have bought several sets from auto-interiors...it comes with the backing already attached and is available in an abundant color selection...very fast order processing and shipping too

Great looking '02 Travis... I love it!

This is just a suggestion if you are a hands on type, but making your own carpet really isn't all the hard. Find a good upholstery shop and buy European Loop carpet and use your old pieces as a pattern...Use vinyl edging. I've made my own carpet for two cars, and have been very pleased. I probably spent a little more that way, but I made sure everything fit perfectly, and corrected some areas where std pieces don't lay right.

My '73tii has a BMW replacement carpet in it, that was bought from a dealer back in the 80's...it's still like new, and has foam backing and cloth edging...very heavy duty. Too bad BMW doesn't make "the real thing" any longer. We should lobby for MT to make them again - nothing better.

Good Luck,

John

Esty -- Good to hear from you. But a question, if I may ... has enough time passed, that the kittens are safe? Just checking. I worry about the kittens, you know.

lol....hey mister....i planted an orange hibiscus outside my office window...every time i look at it i smile and think of you

the cats are safe as long as larson doesn't come around offering "to good to be true" deals or halloween carpet sets or some other scam

orange carpet...there you go otis, that would truly compliment your car show attire

Travis--John (02fanatic in PA) has some good advice. I installed my own black/gray tweed carpet in my '71 and the results are better than factory. World Upholstery has good quality German wool carpet available. The vinyl edging is readilly available at any auto upholstery supply. Use the old carpet as a template and take your time to customize the fit. It is very easy to have an uphostery shop sew the edging on (for an exact seam, I tacked the vinyl in place with contact cement before I had the stitching done. Çomplete the install with spray glue and contact cement. Good luck.

World or GAHH have the best quality materials. I haven't seen a sample of what Blunt is offering, and have requested a blue sample, but not received it.

Can't comment on fit and finish of the suppliers. I wish I had a multi-piece set to use as a pattern to make my own!

    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
