    Thanks for the history lesson but I fail to see the relevance. Your comments and political views are some what hypocritical given your association with this community, nor are your accusations accurate. How can you possibly paint everyone with such a broad brush and label everyone as a Nazi sympathizer or Rightwing darwinist. I for one take exception to your bullshit.  You have no friggin' clue about me, my heritage or my political stripes much less that of the entire membership.   Your ass it outta mile my friend. I am going to go out on a limb here, but I am quite confident there are more than a few would love to hand it back to you.

     

    Based on your statements I am left to assume you are likely not  planning to revisit the site  But,  just in case you do and happen to read our comments I would like to offer a suggestion, actually two. First  I would encourage you to inflict that very same fate to YOUR BMW, (that symbol of Nazi tierney as you so aptly suggest) as did  the Russian Army  to the NAZI symbol that sat atop the German Riechstag that day in May 1945. If you have no idea what I am referring to,  they blew that swastika into a million pieces. The other is much more simple, it can be summed up in just 2 words,  which I am sure will be repeated in subsequent posts.

    First of all I didn't paint everybody here as a Right Winger. But, there are enough here to make me sick. As for History, I believe I can do circles around most of you. You don't know anything about my background. It was the glorious Red Army which marched to Berlin and raised the victory banner over the Reichstag. In the process it blew up the Swastika over the Brandenburg Gate. But, that swastika has been symbolically resurrected today by NATO and its support of Neo-Nazi militia's in places like the Ukraine. There are enough of these Right Wing bastards here to warrant my critique. It sounds like you're the one who needs to take the chill pill, not me.

    gnoring the advice from the right side of my grey matter that says move on ,don’t engage ...

    .I gather from your user name Slav that at some point in your life you were dealt a heavy dose of trauma . You have given hints as to  where and when. To the point, it has clearly affected your ability to cope. Having seen it first hand, a clinical diagnosis is in order and therapy to address it before it destroys what’s left of your psyche. Seriously, get help

    I stand by my earlier comments to you. I commend Germany's Baader Meinhof - RAF and Greece's November 17th for hunting down NATO's Fascist Pigs !

    wait..one more shot. I think you should sell your  BMW's. If not you'll force me to email all your

    Comrades (all 3 of them ) and tell them that you refuse to sell your Nazi Cars

    My Comrades and I enjoy our Nazi trophies. The next time we raise our victory banner over the Reichstag or the White House, we'll collect more.

    Slavs, get back on your meds.  You were ok when we talked cars.

    What's coming out of you now is, in my nonmedical opinion, telling you to go get help.

    Please do, for your own sake.  It's not jetting, it's entire fuel system failure.

    Thanks for the advice, Toby. A lot of folks here are great people. I think you're one of them. But, there's also just enough of them that leave a really bitter taste in my mouth. I've been around a long time, and I have a lot of experience with the BMW community to know what I'm talking about.  I believe I've been here on the FAQ for at least 15 years, and I've owned BMW's since 1982, when I learned to drive and bought my first 1600. I'm tired of some of the ignorant, racist and socially irresponsible comments I hear from members within this community dominated by the Anglo-Teuton brotherhood. I've been subjected to this crap for years. And, it's the last thing I can tolerate, especially now.

    dude...did you get a bad batch of CBD?

    I don't know what is CBD ? I took my drugs during the 80s. I don't think we had that around. We just lived on a diet of Quaaludes, Coke, Meth and Crack. That's probably for beginners these days.

     

    But, the BMW closet case Nazis are very real. They do their best in trying to keep their Fascism in check just underneath the skin. But, it always comes  to the surface one way or another. It's actually a dialectical process where their contradictions manifest themselves in various comments and actions. The current  bloated Capitalist Pig in power has emboldened them to come out of the closet while others remain a bit more diplomatic. "White" folks from this country predominate this BMW culture. Now, I'm "White" , but I can see through some of these bastards who dream of putting on their white sheets.

    It's really interesting.  I've come across one (1) person on the board that I thought was being Nazi-esque.  It was that old guy selling stuff, he literally wouldn't let a guy drive the car in the driveway just to make sure it moved under it's own power.  And then he started spewing some crap about whatever.  I think I told him to fuck off, too.  No, I think I gave him my address and told him to come here and say it my face.

     

    I don't appreciate being thought of as anything to do with being a Nazi.  In fact, my grandparents got out of Russia just as they started killing all the Jews.

     

    Personally, I think our federal government is completely corrupt and 80 percent of our population is currently having a very serious problem.

     

    So I'd say if you don't like being here, ok.  You want to delete your content?  Ok.  You want to call me a Nazi, I'm going to tell you to go fuck yourself.

     

    (I was enlisted, I still use profanity.)

    Your military forces have kissed up to Neo Nazi militias ever since the end of the Cold War. And, in this respect, as a member of a military force which supports these barbaric organizations and the Imperial Will of the USA, YOU CAN GO AND FUCK YOURSELF !


  7. I’m in the process of removing my content from this FAQ. I do not wish to contribute to and / or share technical information with any person and / or group even remotely affiliated with any Right Wing and Nazi organization, including the Republican Party. The vast majority of the FAQ and BMW car club constituents fall into this category.

     

    Right Wing ideology has always been closely affiliated with BMW and enthusiasts of the marque, from its inception to this very day. BMW’s  patriarchal Quandt family  supported and funded Adolf Hitler from the very early years of the Nazi movement. Quandt owned factories, including those of BMW, contributed to the Nazi war effort and employed slave labor from nearby concentration camps. These laborers were subjected to cruel punishment and only lived an average of six months under these conditions. BMW and other German industrial facilities conveniently  located their facilities in the proximity of these camps. On the factory grounds of at least one BMW plant gallows were constructed to hang workers for infractions.

     

    Following the war the Nuremberg trials only addressed the crimes of a handful of leading Nazis before being quickly adjourned. As the Cold War heated up the United States was more interested in appeasing the Nazis and winning the hearts and minds of Germans than it was in any of the crimes they committed. To add insult to injury the second phase of the Nuremberg Proceedings which addressed the complicity of leading German Industrialists, such as the Quandt family, exonerated almost all of them because they were deemed indispensable to the West’s effort to curb Communism. The military guard during the second phase of the proceedings wore American service uniforms, but were recruited from the ranks of recently disbanded Waffen SS units, specifically the Latvian and Lithuanian foreign legions of the Waffen SS who committed unspeakable crimes against the Jews, Communists and others. These murderers and criminals were rewarded rather than being handed over to the Red Army where they would have met justice.

     

    Some of you Republican adherents who have espoused your Right Wing and social Darwinian views in the face of the current crisis we are facing have  demonstrated  your indifference and lack of empathy for the vast majority of people in this country and the world. You can go and pay homage to Wall Street and the BMW marque, indifferent to the plight of people around you and the death toll to the virus. But, I refuse to be associated with you.

  8. I'm enthusiastic about these cars as I've probably clocked more miles on them than anybody on this board. But, in cancelling the event I believe the organizers exercised good judgement and social responsibility given the current state of affairs. Over 50,000 people have died in just a month and a half, and that only includes the documented deaths in hospitals and nursing homes. Another 10,000 probably died at home. What will the toll be when it’s all over?

    Prioritizing auto shows, especially ones such as Pebble Beach, while ignoring the health and welfare of the citizens is simply unacceptable and socially irresponsible.  People are uncertain about their future, including their economic well-being. While bailing out the banks and the affluent, the federal government has done little to nothing for common folks. Just a one-time $1,200 stimulus check is a mere drop in the bucket. Many of us have mortgage and rent commitments, including small businesses, and the government has done nothing to freeze our credit obligation to lending institutions. These are some very serious and genuine concerns. Who cares about Pebble Beach and its snobby “Concurs de Elegance” if I’ve lost my job or business to the pandemic and now I’m staring into the abyss.  People are losing their jobs, livelihood and lives and now we are supposed to worry about Pebble Beach with all its ostentatious manifestations of  wealth, pageantry, snobbery and arrogance.

    Yes, I care about my 02s, but my health, welfare and social responsibility to humanity comes first.

    Slavs, contact Pierre in Camarillo for a recommendation. He had his 91 E30 318is repainted in the original color, Brillantrot  and it looks awesome.

  10. I have a 69 1600 with single circuit brakes. The two reservoirs mounted directly on top of the brake master were used on 1968 2002s and 1969 1600s with single circuit brakes. A lot of Alfa Romeos had the identical brake master and fluid reservoir. The only difference between the 68 2002 and 69 1600 hydraulic system is that the 1600 used the mechanical clutch while the 2002 used the hydraulic clutch. My 1600 also has the welded mounting bracket on the fender for the single reservoir, even though it never came equipped with the reservoir. But, I converted my clutch actuation from mechanical to hydraulic and added the single reservoir, just like the one you have pictured, for my clutch hydraulics. So, now my 69 1600s hydraulics are identical to the 68 2002.

     

    I like the idea of having separate reservoirs for my brakes and clutch. The only reason I converted my car from mechanical clutch actuation to hydraulic was in anticipation of adding a 5 speed OD trans from a 320i. Otherwise, I like the mechanical activation. Your brake fluid reservoirs have the attachments for the brake fluid reservoir warning light. And, your car should have the wire harness for the brake fluid reservoirs unless somebody removed it. 

     

    If you have the single circuit brakes, a cheaper alternative is to use the brake master from the 320i. Other than the shape of the fluid reservoir it is identical to your master. You can get it in either cast metal or light alloy.  It also has the brake fluid reservoir mounted on top of it. And it has a provision for the wiring associated with the fluid level light. The reservoir fluid nipples on the 320i version are a little larger, so I don't know if the reservoirs are interchangeable. For a span of about 20 years, e21s of every variant littered the pick a part yards. That's where I got my 320i brake masters because I wanted the reservoir, otherwise the parts stores were asking more for the reservoir than the master. 

     

    I've attached pics of the 320i master and fluid reservoir.

    A BMW 320i Master cylinder is available new for as low as $60. I've also attached a schematic of the Alfa master cylinder and reservoir.

    I believe the '66 1600-2's VINs were all in the 150XXXX range. 160XXXX VINs were the first rest-of-the-world 2002s...

    Thanks for correcting me,Mike. The Vin# of the 66 was 1507952. I still have a record of it somewhere. The vin # on my 67 is 1520561.

    Your 1600 is the exact color and year my brother bought in 1970, Probably why I own my 68 now, Unfortunately he sold it a couple years later, I wish I new what his License # was to see if it could be same car, I'm originally from your area

    What I know about the history of my 67 1600;

    A gentleman purchased a new and very early 1966 1600 (vin # starting with 160....) in Bristol from a dealership here in Burbank, CA, back in 66 or 67. It wasn't a BMW dealership. He drove the car all over the state and country until the rust got very severe. During the mid to late 90s he purchased a solid 1967 1600 rolling shell, also in Bristol, from 2002AD, which transferred the 66 dash and badges from his 66 to the 67 shell. He also had it converted to a 12v, installed a 2 liter, 5 speed overdrive and rebuilt the 4.11 diff, adding limited slip. The rolling shell supposedly came from the Bay Area. It was mostly solid, although the rockers needed to be replaced. I acquired the car from him in 2008.
