quick Q: Does the tii master cylinder use the same pipes...

I recently replaced my 2002 m/c with a Tii m/c and it's a direct swap.

If you're changing the booster too, that's another story,as Pete said.

The Tii booster is longer. Why not keep the stock booster? Airbox or carbs in the way?

Beat to fit, paint to match.

Mostly -

I just did this. I was able to tweak the lines for the right side and the rear to fit. It's the left front that is the toughest. The shortest line (left side, closest to the booster) no longer fit at all. I was able to bend the "old" line that went to the left front part of the M/C to fit the rear position, but it is tight.

I bought a new 400 mm line to go from the front left side to the hose on the wheel. It's a bit long, but that's easier to work with than too short. Got all of that installed yesterday, and I'm going to try and bleed the system today.

Finally - do a search for the brake booster circlip. I was having problems with "the circlip" on the back part of the booster. I did a search and found this thread:

I bought the E21 clip, and had it installed in under 5 minutes.

Hope that helps.

And one more thing - you do realize that the Tii used a smaller battery? Once you get all of this together (tii booster and m/c), you will lose about 2" or 3" of space. The Tii M/C is about an inch shorter than the standard 02, but the I've heard people say that they can still shoehorn the normal battery in there. It looked to tight to me, so I'm using this an an opportunity to do the trunk relo with mine.

One more thing to think about before you get started.

    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
