02 carpet kit question.

Recommended Posts

Hi everybordy,

i'm looking to put new carpet in when i get back home from school this december as my car is stripped out at the moment.

I'd really prefer to have the salt/pepper carpet combo to go with my black door panels/black vinyl recaros.

I've been looking around and only02 has a nice black carept kit, and

http://www.auto-interior.com/bmw2002.htm#about

has a black/fawn carpet kit.

Questions:

What is black/fawn?, the close up picture is a bit unclear, does it resemble salt/pepper?

Is there anyone out there who knows where i can get a salt/pepper kit, short of forking out 800 or so for an OEM set?

anyone have a hook on what i'm looking for? any help would really be appreciated guys! I'd like to have pictures for you guys by christmas!

thanks

daniel.

I remember a place the made perfect 2002 carpet kits, including saltnpeppa, but it seams to me there hasn't been much board activity about them lately. The name escapes me. I know there have been posts about them though, so run an FAQ search for carpet kits and you will likely score.

Yea, I had been a fan of that place and their work until I realized he ripped me off to the tune of at least 400 bucks. The kit I have is excellent quality, fit and finish but it's not what I payed for.

Yep, there is SO much info on here from the past about carpets it's a little overwhelming... it is somewhat helpful however.

I ended up getting samples from World Upholstery and Auto Interiors (who sells ACC carpet and has a black and white). I was going with blue carpet so I can't tell you who all has the SnP colors... I did get a sample of the SnP though from auto interiors because I was curious. I ended up liking the WorldUp the best and splurged a little on their blue import loop... a little classier and quality looking... but you really have to see the differences in a sample. I haven't installed my carpet yet but it looks really nice out of the box and others have had good experience with it... my interior/carpet guy praised both these companies and said the AutoInteriors price was better than what he could buy it for.

It all depends on your budget. Based on my personal experience, the best carpet kits are made by Gahh. Second best is World Upholstery. Although you can use any carpet material, the best carpet material for vintage cars is German Square weave loop. They are available in flat or blend colors. Second best material is German wool blend loop, it is like 80% nylon, 20% wool.

Black/fawn is a cheap (nylon) copy of salt and pepper German loop. It looks cheap too. You can buy the raw material from Gahh and have your local shop make the carpet for you. Old carpet can be used as a template.

    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
