seat rails

Early cars have the fore-aft adjustment handle integral to the rail coming out under the seat to the front of the car, where later cars have the handle separate and going through a slot in the sheet metal seat tower on the outboard side of the seats.

Early cars have the front mounting bolts going fore-aft (parallel to the floorboard) through a 90° tab, rears go straight down through the rail. Later cars have all 4 bolts going straight down.

The year division between early and late is, I believe, late 71 or 72, but I'm not too sure on this aspect.

All seat rails are on the same spacing, and can be moved from early to late seats. early rails will work on a late car, but late rails will not work on early cars without some serious work to incorporate the "non-integrated" handles.

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
