  1. Year:: 1972 Make:: BMW Model:: 2002Tii Price:: 33000 Location: : Wilsonville, OR Does anyone know this car or the seller? There is less than 24 hours left until the close of this car. http://www.ebay.com/itm/271994044031?forcerRptr=true&item=271994044031&viewitem=&sspagename=ADME:X:RTQ:MOTORS:1123 Thanks- James
  2. Like many of my posts, this promises to be long and somewhat boring. So read at your own risk. The point of this thread is simply to demonstrate how one person, I, approach the purchase of an old vehicle, using my 1973 tii, VIN 2762757 (manufactured October 19, 1972), as an example. I'm confident my critiquing of cars comes across frequently as nit-picking or, even worse, as "my car is better than yours," the latter of which is certainly not true: my photos below will demonstrably prove that "your car, most cars, are better than mine"! WHAT I CARED ABOUT I set my "non-negotiable" needs up front and believe that everything else either a.) can be fixed; or b.) just isn't that important -- to me. I really was not actively looking to purchase another '02; my '76 supplies an endless supply of small automotive projects and a three-year "driving restoration" of a family-owned '61 Ford F-350 (one owner!) were more than I needed. But....for years I had in my mind that if the RIGHT '02 wandered by, I'd probably have to buy it. Following was my list of "non-negotiable" requirements: 1. Round taillight tii. I already have a square taillight, my '76, and I will never sell it. I wanted a "contrast" and...the slightly different appearance makes it easier to explain to my wife why I have TWO cars of the same model. THE REMAINDER OF THE ORIGINAL POST DID NOT SURVIVE PORTING TO THE FORUM'S NEW FORMAT. SORRY,
  3. Was having a particularly bad day at work today. On the way home up I-95 a late model Silver 3-series cut me off (didn't they spy my CCA sticker in the back window of the Pilot?). My spirits lifted when I spotted this Malaga Bavaria just past the Newington exit. The driver looked like they had just come from Fort Belvoir. A CCA sticker appears in the rear window! Sorry for the blurry pic - I was two lanes over.
  4. 1974 BMW 2002-S14 for Sale $19,500 in Denver For Sale is my 1974 BMW 2002tii that is now powered by a 1988 e30 M3 engine, (the S14 engine). It has the matching 5 speed transmission with a short shift kit. The engine and transmission are in superb condition and need nothing. Installation was done with great care and craftsmanship. The car also has a custom stainless steel exhaust from the header pipe back, custom TIG welded, and ending with a stainless steel performance Magnaflow exhaust. I left the Cat and the resonator on as they do not really affect performance, but they do a lot to make the exhaust tone street-able (it was really too loud without). The suspension (shocks -Bilstein, springs - Suspension Techniques, and torsion bars) have all been upgraded to support the M3 drivetrain. It has disc brakes in front with Carbotech pads. Rears are upgraded (528) drums with near newer shoes. It handles awesome and stops great. The History: I have owned this car for about 7 years. I bought it already converted with an s14 engine. Unfortunately, that engine was soon to expire. I was already committed to the car so I had Autosport Werks of Broomfield, CO source and install another S14 engine in 2010. If any of you know Autosport Werks, they are one of the premier Colorado BMW and Audi car shops. The engine came from a wrecked 1988 e30 M3 in El Cajon, CA and had approximately 100k miles on it. I have only put about 2,000 miles on the car since I have owned it. That is why I am selling...I just do not drive the car enough. It’s time to get back the garage space and let it go. I do not know much about the history, but before me, the car came from California to Wisconsin and I brought it to Colorado. I do not know the actual mileage of the car. The Present: Within the last 300 miles the car received a complete tune up at Hotchkiss Automotive in Denver which included changing all fluids, H4 headlight upgrade, Installation of a new Legacy GPS speedometer, New horn and switch, new high beam switch, New Rota RB 15x7 wheels and Faulken asymmetrical tread tires, and alignment. Hotchkiss is a great shop and I know they would be happy to provide feedback on the car. The car runs great. The body is good, but not great and needs some attention, not rust attention, but a good paint job. The battery has been relocated to the trunk with a rear brace installed between the strut towers. I have 2 additional sets of wheels that come with the car, one set BMW 14” bottle caps with xxx tires and the other set are 13” BMW gold basket weaves with Bridgestone Potenza tires. The extra wheels and tires are not new. The heater does not work; never did when I bought it and still doesn’t. The windshield squirts do not work. The reservoir, pump, and hoses were removed by the previous owner and it appears there is not room for the reservoir with the current engine configuration. Two speed wipers work great though, as do all lights, blinkers, hi-lo beams, horn and gauges. The center rearview mirror is from and e30 and has the integral map lights (which work well). Tan carpet is in great shape. Headliner is in good shape. Back window deck lid could use replacement. Has the Italian flush front blinkers (those are going for $600 a pair themselves right now, if you can find them). Dash has a few cracks but looks nice. Original tii clock is there but does not work. As I mentioned Tires are new (< 300 miles on them), brakes are probably at 75%, clutch has just been checked and is in great shape. The stance of the car is perfect, lowered about 1" with 15x7 Rota wheels. This car starts right up, settles into a nice hum, and then rips. The car is essentially rust free. I would say completely rust free except there is some paint bubbling along the chrome trim at the base of the windows in both doors, primarily the drivers side. This is not the usual rust one sees on 2002s and must be from a poor paint preparation at some point in the past. The floors, rockers, shock towers front and rear, are rust free and solid. The gas tank is in great shape. The car is burgundy (Malaga) in color with a tan interior. The interior is generally quite good, with performance seats (vinyl), five point harnesses from RJS Racing Equip., and an ok stereo. Regular seat belts are also there for everyday use. There is a little wear showing on the drivers seat, speaker grilles are missing on doors, and the horsehair padding on the rear seat is worn out. The rear seat looks fine, just don't plan to ride comfortably back there. The bumpers, while the 74 style, have been moved in, close to the body, vastly improving the looks of these bumpers. The doors close nicely. However the rubber seals on door and quarter windows should be replaced; they are a little tired. As I mentioned before, a paint job is in order; trunk, quarters, and roof look to be original paint, but doors fenders and hood have definitely been re-coated at some point, and not done so well. A good paint job would make this a show stopper more than it already is. Even as it is, this car gets lots of attention. Trim is in decent shape all around, but not perfect. The windshield has a small rock chip but I have a new rubber gasket and aluminum lock strip for a new windshield. If you are looking for great fun with no hassles, this is your chance. It’s fun, it’s a piece of history, Its cool, and I’ll be sad to see it go. I have tried to describe the car as accurately. The car needs nothing to be great fun car and with some attention to paint and body, could be a real gem. As it is, it is absolutely a blast to drive. Feel free to call with any questions 303 - two five three - 5 four seven 5, or martincharleswillie@gmail.com. $19,500 in Denver. Thanks, Martin
  5. Hey FAQI recently picked this up with the hopes of restoring it as I go and keeping it as a long term project, but I realize I can not afford that or will have the time for it for a few years. The car runs and drives and stops, and runs pretty well. I have driven it a few times around the block but do not want to push it hard because it has been sitting in a garage for the last 7 or 8 years by previous owner. Mostly everything is there. All the lights are working and signals are functional, the door cards are all there in good condition with no holes. The rust is pretty bad on the car. There are holes in rockers, and the front nose, as well as the spare tire well which is about non existent. I have another spare tire well to be welded into its place. There is quite a bit of rust as well under the car, but there are not any holes or anything huge. The frame itself looks to be in good nick. I took some pictures and will use some pictures from previous owner. The brakes stick a little.The paint is Malaga, but was done while ago really poorly, but It protected it at least. The car is numbers matching, I can't get a picture of the engine VIN real well, but I can see that it is correct. I have a book of records going back to 1985The body is straight The wheels pictured will not come with car, I will have the same ones soon but they will be painted gold and will need to be fixed later. I also stock 02 wheels if you prefer.This car is in need of a restoration. You can drive it a little for now but it will need some attention. I want this car to go to a good home and I would like to know where it ends up to maybe check up on because I really wanted to keep it for myself and restore it.More pics: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B0ZI_U-MpB9OSjY3YTVMWG9WZmcBody pictures soon. If you have any questions let me know, you can email, text, or call. $10,000ThanksSean Catlin
  6. Not mine, but I thought I should share. This is the third 02 ive seen stolen in the one year ive been into 02s...and all have been in CA I believe and around LA. http://losangeles.craigslist.org/lac/cto/5420463457.html Be on the look out...
  7. Ok, I changed the title to hopefully drum up some interest! I will start to post more frequently as well, w/more pix... Another one to tinker with.. Hayward, CA '73 Malaga/Saddle automatic 2002 w/supposedly 80K original miles. I am inclined to believe that the mileage is correct, as the gentleman that I bought it from has known the car from new. Evidently he used to mow the original owner's lawn in the '70's, and she was an older woman at that time who only putted around town in it. After she passed away, her son inherited it, who evidently did some work to it, but it then sat for about 20 yrs (Michelin's on the car are from '94), until the current owner was given it by him 2 yrs ago. Very solid, original car with one small hole in spare wheel well-all other critical areas solid. Paint is oxidized, but jambs, trunk and underhood are still shiny (I'll clean, polish and wax those bits). Right rear qtr panel and tail panel might have been replaced as weld to rocker panel is different from other side and '02 script reinstalled in '74-'76 location. All glass original (Duro-Glas) except for windshield (PPG), trim and bumpers about as excellent as one could hope for being 43 yrs old-a good polish is all they'll need. Original wiper arms, original early style locking gas cap. Interior is great: perfect headliner, door cards (need new mylar though), rear interior panels, passenger and rear seat (does not look sat on ever), even carpet (just needs a good scrubbing). Driver seat needs to be re-stuffed and has 2 tears, dash has 2 cracks in the usual places. Weber conversion, new battery, newish tank that was recently flushed, new sending unit, rebuilt brakes w/new rotors, NOS spare rear bumperette, NOS spare gas gauge, NOS spare taillight and chrome, new rear wheel bearing kit and a few other extras in trunk. Plans are: -5 spd conversion. Already talking to JP at A1 Autoworks -Dual Weber sidedrafts (finicky yes, but as I've grown up around vintage cars. I. MUST. HAVE. -S14 starter -early head w/292? -Header (haven't decided which yet) -custom exhaust a la IE or Coupe KIng -Suspension kit (not sure if I want to get as crazy as coilovers or not yet) -Big brake kit (might just do Wilwood + rear disc conversion) -Alpina rep's or BBS RS -shaved side markers -Euro turns -Euro bumper conversion -E21 Recaro's -Nardi or Momo Prototipo -??? Will drive as is as I chip away at the above after tires, a tune and restuffing of driver's seat. Picking up car end of week after new tires installed... Attached Thumbnails
  8. It was exactly ten years ago today that I bought "Celeste" from Jeremy Davenport in MA. In 2005, I did some research into the little fuel injected 2002's and began my search for a nice example. I picked up an issue of BIMMER Magazine from the local bookstore which contained a 2002 Buyers Guide (by Mike Miller of course), read it over and over then browsed thru the 2002AD website (per the article's recommendation..). I found a blue 74tii, called Ben about it and flew to SFO to inspect and drive it. Evan Estermann (sp) of Bimmer Brothers met me at the airport and drove me around so I could check out the car myself. Evan was really nice and even though I didn't buy that car, he took me back to his warehouse to look at other cars (he had a really nice Inka squaretail there but it wasn't a tii). Needing a ride back to my hotel, another person was there looking at cars so I was fortunate to get a ride with Andy Reid (photographer and car auction expert). Turns out he grew up in the Northern VA area! During the ride to my hotel, Andy told me to try and buy a classic car that is what you really want and can afford -spend more for a better example if possible. After my trip to CA, I looked around on the internet and stumbled across an ad on Roadfly (remember them!) for a Malaga 73tii in Massachusetts. Jeremy and I e-mailed and spoke on the phone in early December 2006. On a whim, I decided to drive up to MA, check out the car and if all went well, give him a deposit. Sealing the deal, we arranged for the car to be transported to VA in early January. After countless trips to the Vintage in NC starting in 2008, 2009 Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix (immediately after hernia surgery), Mid America Fest X in 2010 and other driving trips, the car is like a member of our family. I'd have a really hard time parting with such a great vehicle. It has never broken down on me. The only road trip issue was my first to Vintage 2008 when the fuel tank pickup sealing ring leaked fuel into the spare tire well. So many things have been upgraded/replaced on the car, I never started a project blog here - only posted several (long) threads. It has been fun and interesting doing most of the work myself to the car - I can't think of anything other than sending the KF pump/injectors out for service, machining the cylinder head and having tires mounted that hasn't been done by yours truly. Over the years, I've had lots of help from great local folks like Matthew Cervi, Bill Williams, Bill Riblett, Marc Caden, Clay Weiland, Dudley Williams, Grice and of course Marshall Lytle. Other long distance support from Rob Torres, Keith Kreeger, Mike Pugh, Ray Koke, Bo Black, Randy Anderson, Daren Ball (now local), Steve (BLUNT) and Chris Isaccson has been greatly appreciated. The first trips to the Vintage introduced me to great folks like Larry Schwarz, Robert Cruz, Doug Miller, Chris "Skip" Leonard, Sam Adams, Mike Self and countless others that have inspired me to keep this car and get another, so my passion is still there for the 2002. I cannot name everyone that I've touched base with - hopefully you can read this and know I am thinking of you. Thanks to everyone who has assisted, prodded, laughed, wrenched and inspired me over the years. Enough typing - enjoy a few pictures. Had to include this one of Susan leaning against the car outside Marc Caden's house. Jim
  9. $11,000 or best offer 1974 BMW 2002 Tii VIN 2782636 Registered in California, assumed California original because of the original period blue license plates. Mileage: unknown, Odometer reads ~22200. Driven less than 16,000 miles since purchase in 2011 Non-matching engine number: 367170 Paint color: Malaga Fully stock drivetrain, modified suspension and brakes Comes with binder with history of last 6 years (entirety of my ownership) Full Service History from last 6 years: http://bit.ly/2kZAih9 Full extra parts list (nearly 70 new and used parts): http://bit.ly/2kO56Q6 Photos of every part listed: https://goo.gl/photos/1CQbVp63cNMBkFZ17 More photos of the car: https://goo.gl/photos/Y7RjPYCM52Jy3bCZ7 Summary: I am selling my beloved Tii. I hate to be separated from it before finishing the project. However, I have been offered the opportunity to purchase the Porsche I was raised in, so I have to move on. It is the only reason I am selling the car. I have loved this car and taken the best care of it that I can. For the last 6 years I have focused entirely on the mechanical aspects of the car, believing that an unattractive car that runs well is better than a pretty car that doesn’t. Oil was changed every 6 months no matter the mileage In 2011, I purchased the car from Greg Winter of Auburn, California, Since then, it has resided with me in San Francisco, always garaged. I have very little documentation for the car prior to my ownership. I have full service logs and parts list for the vehicle which can be found at the above links. Most work was done by myself or Sean Casey and Tom Jones at Sean Casey Motorsports. The car drives very well with a completely rebuilt suspension (new rubber all around, re-powdercoated parts, strengthened front subframe, new HR springs and Bilstein shocks). The drivetrain has been kept stock and aggressively maintained/replaced. The brakes are very strong with stock Tii’s up front and a rear disc conversion from Aardvark racing in the back. Wheels are painted E30 steelies wrapped in fresh Dunlop Direzza ZII’s. Build date (from Hoffman Motors in New York, NY): The BMW 2002 tii US VIN 2782636 was manufactured on July 31st, 1974 and delivered on August 22nd, 1974 to the BMW importer Hoffman Motors Corp. in New York City. The original colour was Malaga, paint code 021.

New door brakes New oil pan gasket Rear Disc brake conversion from Aardvark Racing New timing chain, sprockets, tensioner, guides and gaskets. Refreshed, used differential Refreshed, used transmission New clutch pressure plate, disc, throw-out bearing and pilot bearing Heater box rebuild with used electric fan E30 Steelies painted in aluminum Euro bumper conversion begun (see photos) The Bad Mild squeak from rear brakes Pilot bearing squeaks occasionally Paint - pretty much a 30 foot paint job Car was tapped in 2014. Quarter panel replaced, but still has dent by the headlight Electric fan squeals above low setting. Rear euro bumper needs alignment No front bumper Missing 1 license plate light Electric sunroof is unreliable Clock doesn’t keep time Seat belts don’t retract well Typical 2002 gas smell Pre-purchase inspection done by Sean Casey Motorsports Driveline vibration Notch in steering box Temperature reads high when lights are one - bad grounding Aim headlights Rear wheel bearings squeak at speed Driver’s rocker trim falls off Clock noisy and not working properly, doesn’t keep time. Turn signal relay doesn’t tick Turn signal doesn’t cancel properly Diff mount mounting ears bent Diff right side seal leaking Engine oil leak Oil dipstick tube hose leaking Oil hose, injection pump return hose leaking Radiator cap very old, seal bad Red coil needs 1.8ohm resistor
