door stop/brake question


Jared

Recommended Posts

I did some searching and it seems like E30 door stops will work with some modification, are they are door stops from other BMW's that will work without modification?? I think I saw 530 somewhere?? I have a donor E30 I can use, but I would rather just bolt something on.

Thanks in advance,

Jared

Thank you, that was the info I needed .

Did you end up using washers to space it out to keep the door from opening too much? I wouldn't mind if my door opened slightly less than stock. I've had a bad experience with it swinging too far open and denting.

I'm afraid someone else will have to take that question on as mine have not yet been installed. My car is still in the paint process. Good luck!

I grabbed a set of Mercedes at the time of the original post- fest-

they indeed are quite a bit longer, but are also a very good design,

as in, once you mod 'em, they'll last longer than the car.

(well, duh, it's a Mercedes!)

What stopped me was the position of the detent- I realized that

it takes some figuring to get the 'click' in the right place as well as the

end stop.

ANd I ran out of energy for it. I seem to remember thinking

that it needed to be cut AND spaced, but I never got as

far as measuring it, as I didn't have a door apart to get dimensions.

One of these days...

    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
