  1. +1 on Toby's recommendation. Just fix the starter and you'll be back on the road. Then drive it like you stole it.
  2. Sounds like it's time for a Euro bumper conversion. 😁
  3. Les, I have to disagree with you. The dash in my tii looked like the Grand Canyon with all the cracks in it. In 2004, I stumbled on to a crack free one piece Euro spec 02 dash (no fasten seat belt billboard) at a vintage auto flea market for 120 Euros in Ludwigshafen Germany. I bought it and mailed it back home. Before installing it, the hole in the dash for the clock was carefully cut out. The Euro dash had the depressed imprint for clock hole in the back of the dash and it was very obvious where the clock went. G-Man
  4. +1 on Bus Depot E-code Hella H4 lights for a great price. I bought a set of Hella H4 for my tii from Bus Depot (couldn't pass up the price) but I also have a set of Cibie 7" H4 as well. I do prefer the light pattern of Cibie over Hella but Cibie's ain't cheap. G-Man.
  5. Recommend you bookmark this page on BMW wheel styles http://felgenkatalog.auto-treff.com/
  6. I've seen the same wheel in 14" 5X120 for a E3/E9/E12, etc...
  7. I have the same (22/19mm) ST sway bars in my tii and I'm very happy with them. I have no doubt that the new owner of these sway bars will like them as well. G-Man
  8. Not mine, no affiliation, etc... This would look great on a 2002 after they are cleaned up. They have a strong resemblance to BBS RA wheels. I knew little about MIM wheels, after a quick Google search, discovered they are made in Italy. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/655573168273739/ G-Man
  9. I would highly recommend that you reconsider you passing on the car, 1.2k OBO is a good price. Finding an 02 in the middle of nowhere Montana in that condition is a planets are aligned event. Look at the project blogs in the 2002FAQ with the work involved in bringing a car back to life. The ad has your favorite words, "or best offer". Show up with a trailer and make a low ball cash offer and tell the seller you'll make the car disappear because you'll bring it back to life, it will probably follow you home after some negotiation. As others have said, you'll find rust somewhere, it's a no cost option on 02's. I found rust on this 74 tii shell and it spent its life in CA. I traded a Euro spec E28 525e that I paid $1.7K for in 2009 and traded it for the tii shell in 2010.
  10. When I had my 74 tii repainted, I requested a passenger side mirror to be installed (along with side marker light/reflector delete and bumper conversion). No regrets.
  11. Not mine, no affiliation, etc. As an altenative to running VW 15X6 BBS RA wheels. Never seen these wheels before. https://lancaster.craigslist.org/wto/d/landisville-vw-estoril-wheels-4x100-set/6958367443.html
  12. If these are Euro cars, it should not make a difference except for the rear panel.
  13. ET 27 should work with a 195/50 tire. Recommend you spend some time in this FAQ thread. https://www.bmw2002faq.com/forums/topic/142446-tires-and-wheelrims-fitment-guide/
  14. Offset is way too high for a 2002. Before you spend money on tires and wheels, dive into this thread from those who have been there and done that.
  15. Not mine, no affiliation, etc.. If they were 15's, I would be all over them. https://southjersey.craigslist.org/wto/d/mount-laurel-ozracing-fittipaldis-4x100/6938413516.html G-Man
