How much grills are worth?


Recommended Posts

Guest Anonymous

Probably as much as someone will pay for them?

Hint: I'll bet you are smart enough to know that some things are worth more to some people than others. Ever look at something called Ebay? Worth? Reasonable? Unreasonable?

The part for a heater is probably WORTH more on the South Pole than somewhere on the equator.

I agree that "worth" is a very subjective term. But I got two semi-straight, but badly painted grills for $50 at a swap meet and I paid $100 for one very clean and straight one from another FAQ person. Of course one can pay over $600 for a new pair of grills. My experience is used ones can be straightened with judicious use of pliers and gentle tapping with a small rubber mallet. You also need to confirm that the small loop behind the clear reflector is still intact to pull the grill in flush with the fender. Finally, I had good success cleaning all paint off 2002 grills, to create the 1600-look, with paint stripper. Good luck.

What are early unpainted and undamaged grills worth?

New ones are now $414 each. 2 years ago I paid $225 for a set of brand new old stock ones here on the FAQ. For my early 2002, I subsequently and painstakingly taped them off and shot them with Wurth self etching primer and several coats of SEM trim black. They look fantastic, the paintwork applied by me was defiantly more careful than Hans back in old Bavaria.

There is a euro junkyard here that overprices on everything. They have junked tons of 02s in the 80's and 90's.I wanna see if I can get a good deal out of them, hence those assholes have stuff sitting around for ages.....

I would say this: very good original shape (undamaged, with no paint) $150-200 tops for all

Good shape: $100

Junk $50

    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
