Yet another Airdam/spoiler ID question: Be kind


Recommended Posts

I've just searched 200+ posts but lots are old and pictures link broken...

I'd like this spoiler for my 73 (and t keep my bumper too)...


Also seen here:


I would like to confirm it is the one sold by ireland engineering in plastic (not fiber) for $200..

aka 2002 front air dam : http://store.nexternal.com/shared/StoreFront/default.asp?CS=ireland&StoreType=BtoC&Count1=68615138&Count2=985755562&CategoryID=1&Target=products.asp

I's also love it if someone could post a 3/4 or side shot, as there seems to be a crease in the corner where the bumper wraps over it ? Not sure how that looks...

Also triple checking you can install this without fender flares, on a stock 73... I presume you need to drill and bolt, but that's OK... Thanks !

PS: It's for her:


I will have extra paint left over, so...

PPS: If you can tell me in advance what else I need, hardware wise, sealer, beading, rubber seal, anything?

Same as mine, which was sourced from La Jolla Indep. www.bimmerdoc.com.

Ireland may sell the same, I dunno.

Pretty resilient plastic of some sort.

Old pic...

Yep, drill 'em!




Stop reading this! Don't you have anything better to do?? :P
Two running things. Two broken things.

I'm trying to determine that for sure... Bimmerdoc does not show it on their website - I can call but I'd need that bumper's name or part#... I'd feel more comfortable if I knew for sure, there seem to be hundreds of variations out there ;-)

FWIW, here's a shot of mine - it's similar to Ray's, but show's how it fits on my big-bumper 02. Mine is an original Zender fiberglas version, and has actually held up quite well for more than a decade (it's not brittle, as described).

I don't believe the Alpina airdam is the same. I think the IE model is a similarly-styled polyethelene clone of this Zender unit.




Where we goin’? … I’ll drive…
There are some who call me... Tom too         v i s i o n a u t i k s.com

The enlarged photo of the spoiler from IE appears to be a Zender, but the smaller photo is different and appears Hollister Auto Body-like. The IE web page presentation is not clear regarding which air dam they are selling, IMHO. I'd call them. Good luck.

    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
