I just wanted to say thanks to the freakin awesome 2002 crew

Thanks all. I have been lookin at 2002 tii's for about a year now. About 6 months ago, I posted the pictures of a golf '74 tii asking for your opinions. I received a ton of good advice. It came in really handy, (although its taken about 6 months to negotiate the deal), but I finally took the car home last Friday. I looked at a bunch of different cars and just came back to this one. Now that I actually have a car, I'll be a lot more active on the site. I'm a newbie who still needs a lot of help on taking care of one of these. I smile every time I get in it though. Didn't I read that in a old BMW ad? Thanks again. Here are a few pics.

I do love my '83 911 Cab. The two cars are totally different beasts. Am I alone in my thought here? I realize its like going to the Democratic national convention and telling people I like both sides. Just deal with me. I seriously can't smile though since I got my tii. All of my wifes friends think the 2002 is cuter if that means anything.

As far as I know. I found about $15000 worth or receipts from when the P.O. restored it between '88-91. There wasn't any carpet receipts in them, but I guess that doesn't mean all that much. Unfortunately, after the P.O. restored the car he passed away. The car has been sitting in his German repair shop since. Back in March I was in the shop getting the chain tensioner upgrade done on the Porsche and I asked in passing if he ever gets any tii's in. He took me to the back room and there it was. It hadn't been drivin since 1991. A lot of the past six months has been getting the car back up to speed. It needed a bunch of stuff like brakes, spark plugs, rotors, oh... and a rebuilt fuel injection pump. Yikes!!!

Cool story though, the P.O. talked his wife into buying the car from the 1st owner back in 1984. She was looking at buying a Honda, but he talked her into buying the BMW since he worked on german cars. She didn't like the car because of the color. She thought it was a little too loud! Anyways, he talked her into buying the car and she drove it to work from Lodi to Sacramento for a few years. Once they started having kids, he decided to get her something else because he figured the car would get hammered by all the kiddos. Thats when he started pumping the money into it. One of the last times he ever drove it was to a car show in Sacramento. The prize from the show was in the trunk. It was a Napa Auto Parts Woody Car model.

one a 72 and this a 74, that have the orange plug on the passenger's side on top of the valve cover.

What is that?

Both have the test port with the orange cover on the drivers side too.

Very nice car!

    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
