I think it belongs to Dave and Sean... good guys and Dave fairly represents his parts.

Ask whatever you want, but they're old parts. At the very least, the transmission is 26 years old. You may have to service it, but he might know how many miles are on it or if it made any noise prior to removal.

Welcome to vintage car restoration. Not to be overly frank or abrasive, but it is what it is. The way that I see it, Each time I buy something else for the car, I'm paying for some rustic charm. Wind wistling on a wing window that doesn't close that well, a noisy rear end, exhaust fumes, a picky second gear syncro-- it's all part of the charm of an old car.

Some people just don't get it like we do.

Fair enough.I have learned to deal with my 2nd gear syncro. Every time something comes up I wish I had a car that had less "patina",but when I get in and drive,all that goes away and a smile on the face ensues.I appreciate the heads up on the possible seller.I have emailed him.Anyone local to the bay area do 5spd conversions/installs?I wish I had the space to do it myself to be honest but so is life.

    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
