  1. Here's what I've discovered about Amil since I now own two different sets of Amil wheels.
  2. I recently picked up these Amil (made in Belgium) 10 spoke 15X7 ET25 wheels from my local wheel shop where they painted them and machined the lips. New Yokohama Advan Fleva 195/50-15 were mounted on the wheels. These wheels replaced the 15X7 ET25 Centra type 11 wheels that were on my tii for several years. For some reason, I just feel the need to change the shoes on my cars every few years. I need to take some pics of these wheels on my tii. If anyone knows the name of these wheels, please let me know.
  3. Any cluster from a 74-76 with the faux wood grain will fit your 76. I have 71-73 cluster in my 74 tii. I'm not a big fan of the faux wood grain so I put my cross hair gauges in an earlier cluster.
  4. Anyone know what happened to this Frankenstein 1600ti? Last heard it was in Texas in 2011. I heard that Dryden said that if knew how rare the car was, he would have never modified it. https://www.bmw2002faq.com/forums/topic/109133-1968-1600ti-with-m6-s38-circa-european-car-1993/ To learn more about this car, do a Google search on Joe Bill Dryden 1600ti or do a search in the FAQ.
  5. It's been that way (cut wires) for years with no issues. The original dash was replaced in 2010 with the Euro spec dash so the cut wires are with a high probability going to the fasten seat belt buzzer and billboard. I traded my Euro spec E28 525e for a 74 tii shell. Everything from my Frankenstein tii was moved over to the new shell after a repaint to include the Euro dash. Obviously that's when the wires were cut since they are not needed for the Euro dash. Thanks all for the replies, mystery solved. Did I mention that removing/installing an 02 heater box is sucky job.
  6. Thanks, that makes sense! Being in the center of the dash, I assume that the wires were hooked up to the fasten seat billboard on top of US spec dashboards. My US spec tii dash had numerous cracks and was replaced with a crack free one piece Euro spec 02 dash (no fasten seat belt billboard or shift pattern, heater/vent controls in German). The hole for the tii clock was carefully cut out. I scored the 02 dashboard for 120 Euros at an automotive flea market in Ludwigshafen Germany and mailed it back.
  7. I'm in the process of putting my heater box back in my tii after getting my heater fan fixed. While I have the console out, I'm looking underneath the dash and I see three wires cut from a loom behind the tii clock. Anyone know what these wires are for? Everything is working so it's more curiosity of what these wires went to. I hate dealing with previous owner syndrome, WTF were they thinking...
  8. Since your 15" OZ wheels have an E21 offset, recommend you post an ad on The BMW E21 Legion Facebook page. GLWS!
  9. My heater fan died a few months ago. Last week I pulled the heater box and took the top half of the heater box with the fan attached to a local old school alternator/starter repair shop (P&H Auto-Electric in Baltimore). They put new brushes in it, lubricated and bench tested it and they said it works great. While they had the fan out of the heater box, they spray painted the heater fan blades, all for $50. I'll be reinstalling the heater box tomorrow.
  10. Buy an E30. I have both a tii and a E30. The M42 motor puts a smile on my face every time I drive it. To enjoy a M42, you have to drive it like you stole it. Magical things happen past 4000 RPM in a M42.
  11. I know I got hooked on 02's while serving in the Air Force and stationed in Germany in the early 80's. No regrets, some of the best times ever stationed in Germany as a young airman. Being in Germany, 02's were plentiful and cheap. Here's me with my first 02, a 75 Euro spec Sahara 1802. Pic was taken in July 1981 in Winnweiler Germany. I now have a 74 Sahara 2002tii with a Euro bumper conversion.
  12. Hub is brand new so that's not the issue.
  13. Old school 4X100 Centra type 11 wheels, made in W. Germany is stamped on them. These wheels are unicorns, you rarely see them come up for sale. ET25 offset, perfect offset for 15x7 wheels on your 02. I had them painted semi-gloss black in 2016 and the lips were machined. They have a huge (2") lip to them. Yokohama S Drive 195/50-15 tires are mounted on the wheels. Plenty of tread left on the tires but due to the age, (2014 & 2015), would recommend new tires within the next year. My tii averaged 2500 miles a year. +They were on my tii which is always garaged, minimal exposure to the elements and no sidewall cracks. For more info, see below FAQ link, $500 firm Glen Burnie MD 21060, no shipping.
