Help Identifying Tii Bits and Bobs?

Guest Anonymous

Recommended Posts

Guest Anonymous

After lusting after a 2002 for many years, I finally scored, and found a rust free 72 Inka/Black locally. Under the hood is an early 72 Tii motor! Sadly, it hasn't run in 14 years so it's a bit of a project.

The guy I bought it from wasn't much of a car guy, so couldn't give me much info. So my question...how do I quickly identify of the car has any of the other Tii specific its on it? Like struts/brakes, fuel tank or fuel pump? It was converted over 20 years ago, and they even installed the Tii emmision stickers, so I'd like to know if they did the full monte.

Any help is appreciated! Thanks.

Google came through with some of your answers. Some tii owner(s) has laid them all out on Wikepedia:


Major differences in a nutshell:

tii front brake rotors - 10.08" dia, standard 9.45" dia

longer brake booster and master cylinder

larger rear wheel cylinders

larger wheel bearings and spindles

boxed rear trailing arms

"the clock"

Good luck and have fun.


no bimmer, for now

On 2002's the VIN plate and engine serial numbers matched from the factory. If the engine VIN is above 2762630, it's a 73 engine.

Thanks for the tips. I have confirmed through the VIN that it's not a Tii. And it has the plastic intake tubes, so it's an early 72 motor (right?). Just want to be able to identify any other converted parts. Thanks for the help, especially Jerry.

    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
