Good stuff! My wife and I plan to come to stockholm, amongst other places this summer, probably July, for our first big trip together. Her mother is full Swedish but grew up in Austin, TX. We should definitely get together when we come!

Hi Matt,

ofcourse we should get together when you're visiting Stockholm. I live just outside and only 10 minutes with the subway from the centralstation. Just give me a hint when it's time.

gaaah...I just can´t take it anymore...! I just want to get out on the roads! This winter seem to never end. :(

I have just started my 5-speed conversion and this forum is filled with good reading and great people with much knowledge. Thanks guys!

The driveshaft has been shortened and balanced in a workshop. The tranny got Redline oil, new realese bearing, realese bearing arm and a new clutch slave cylinder.

The only thing left to do is mount the tranny. :)

I also found this steering wheel...what do you think?

I used a homemade measuretool to get the driveshaft lined up. It's now totally in line and all set up for a testdrive!

The next step is to upgrade the brakes to bigger things...

Niice! Things are going along well it seems with your 02. As for me, we're getting our trip plans rolling. We leave Houston, Texas on June 12 planning to arrive in Stockholm on the 13th some time. We'll spend that week in stockholm then go to the country where our agent suggested Mora for 4 nights. What do you think? Any favorite rural places? We're open to ideas. We don't mind more quaint hole-in-the-wall type places either. Our agent has us in the Hotel Rica in Stockholm and I was surprised how high it was. But I know we're getting some sort of deal through her.

Let me know!

Hi Matt,

Mora is nice! How do you get there? By car or by flight? If you go by car you will see a lot of "hole-in-the-wall" places...;)

I hope my car is rookin by then! My son is now 9 months old and take lots of attention and time.

Cheers Micke

    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
