sot: need to sell my XR4TI...


Recommended Posts

i need to get rid of some of my cars...my XR4TI has been put aside and i lost all faith in that car. I always babied this car and is mint imho.

I dont know what to do. Those cars are miss understood and hated beyond logic.

I did drive the hell out of it for nearly 10 years. I rebuilded the engine at that era, and put a T-5 trany in, and all the usual goodies, motorsport cam, big VAM, volvo intercooler and a tune chip. 275hp easy back then.

The car never ever seen the snow, always garaged. The body is super straight and clean. The interior is nice but could benifit of some clean-up.

The engine purrs like a kitten but would need rings as with a lot of boost oil started to raise over in the catch can. The trany shift nice but the clucth mecanism or presure plate act like shit. So mecanicaly it is not 100% nice, but is a true runner.

I have a nice dual exhaust system for it but for now it has the original one on it because the last 2 years i did drive it i hated a noisy car so i re installed the original one (very quiet). Yes, 1985 and still have its original exhaust system. That tells you how nice it is.

Car has low mileage on it for a 23 year old one, less than 150k km iirc.

I have a lot of spare parts, a nice uncracked dash (the one in the car actualy is not cracked either), 2 trany (one auto and one manual) 2 heads, manifolds, headlight, tail lights, sunroof,...

So, my question is, who could buy that kind of car, and how much ??

would i regret it ???

i am realy thinking hard to sell my turbo 02 as well....

no i am not depresive !!!

    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
