Call ahead with the part number. Its asking a lot to expect a reliable answer as to what retailers keep on the shelf. I have no idea what someone keeps in their inventory.

Radiator caps are standard fare and would expect most retail shops carry those. The thermostat is specific to the M10 engine. You should be aware of that if you have been doing any of your own work on the engine. I would expect most dealerships to keep a couple in stock, but I have no personal knowledge of what any dealership carries. There are at least 3 different temperature ratings too. If you are having cooling issues, I would probably go for the 71 C version (for summer). I would not be surprised to learn that the dealer keeps only one temperature rating 75 or 81.

    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.

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
