Bmw 2002 ti LSD


Poon

Recommended Posts

Just curious but how much are the original Bmw 2002 LSD's going for?

There is a guy selling one (with a bunch of parts ) from a 1969 2002 ti. Yes, a real ti imported from Europe. He's asking $700 for the diff. I know the earlier diff's had long necks, but is that the same for the LSD's as well?

Thanks,

Andrew Poon

That seems like a fair price to me? If it is in good condition? BillyRay, not too far from you in Crescent City, CA and needing ti parts. Please drop me a line as I am looking for a few ti specific pieces. smallfastforeign@aol.com

Sent you an email.

This LSD was rebuilt quite a few years ago, but the seller claims it hasn't had many miles since it was rebuilt.

Almost wondering if it would be cheaper to install a 320is lsd though.

i paid $700 for my original 02 LSD. it would be cheaper to go the 320is route as they are now fetching about $250-400 on ebay these days and add on a $50 spacer kit from Aardvark Racing and you're good to go.

i wonder if this is the same ti owner from Calgary who had two ti's rusting away in his yard. at the time, he'd rather let them rust into the ground than part them out or help export them to the USA.

it's a car worth saving

Jerry,

I do know that the ti was from Calgary! The current owner now runs a small restoration shop , and previously had the car and sold it to a friend. His friend didn't use the car much, and let it rust very badly so he bought it back at a good price and now it's being parted.

is it one of these 'beauties' ?

i was offered the red one for $800 at the time, but exporting an unregistered car into the USA before the winter snows proved to be too difficult.

broke my heart.

gads, i'd love to get my hands on the carcass and matching engine. i have all the remainder parts to reassemble a ti at this point.

So, what is special about a ti diff? The factory manual shows these as 3.64:1, in common with the 2002 and 2002A cars. Check out Dave at Aardvarc Racing:

http://www.2002parts.com/html/differentials.html

as a quality source for these diffs. I bought an E21 3.64:1 LSD diff from him a few years ago (prices seem to have gone up a bit, but nowhere near $700) and have been happy with the product. He also provided the 02 flanges and spacers I needed to install this diff for a reasonable price.

I think 2002 LSD diffs are worth a bit more because they bolt right in, nothing needs modification, no extra parts are needed, and they are quite rare.

E21 LSD's (as rare as they are) still seem pretty common and pop up from time to time, where as 2002 LSD's seem almost impossible to get.

Indeed, although this distinction is important mostly to the "originality" people. The good news is that no permanent modification is required to use an E21 diff.

Ha ha, when I looked at them he wanted $2500 for the ti's and $5000 for the very early white tii (25th tii to NA).

I guess he came down a bit.

The big differance between a 2002 lsd and a 320 one is the percentage of look up, the 02's being 40% or maybe even 75% while the 320's is 25%.

bone stock 80+ lsd are 25%, only 77-80 e21 lsd are 40%, and they are very rare. duno for 02.

btw, i want those wheels BAD.

    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
