  1. I tend to stay out of arguments online these days, but it does frustrate me when one person is so correct, the others are not and I happen to be what’s called an expert in the subject; the minutiae of ‘66 and ‘67 1600-2s. As well as just about every other generation of ‘02s as well. These thin surround ten slat center grilles did indeed come on the earliest of ‘02s and are the same ines that came on all Series 1 Neue Klasse sedans. They came on the ‘66 and ‘67 BMW16oo’s and 1600-2’s till late June ‘67 production. One can find the VIN data in the orange parts books as well as the microfiche. I happen to know this because I own four ‘66-67 1600s, from an Oct ‘66 BMW16oo to a very early ‘68 MY Oct ‘67. Great to hear from you Davin! It’s certainly been a while! Sorry to have missed you the last time you were in the San Francisco area. Maybe, hopefully, you can make it out for Saturday May 2nd, for the TWENTIETH BayArea02 Swap&Show!
  2. The 20th annual BayArea02 Swap&Show is scheduled for Saturday May 2nd in the usual Brisbane Marina location. Hope to see all of you there! https://www.bmw2002faq.com/forums/topic/257159-20th-annual-swapshow-saturday-may-2nd/
  3. Save the date! I’m proud to announce that the Bay Area ‘02’s 20th! annual Swap&Show will be Saturday May 2nd 2020! That’s TWENTY YEARS folks! Same Brisbane Marina location only a hop and a skip from SFO and San Francisco. I promise we’ll announce registration, have event flyers and an updated event page up soon! In the meantime, here’s some photos from last year’s event taken by yours truly after spending the morning parking all of you on the lawn.

  5. Happy Birthday Ludwig! In February my parents will celebrate 48 years since they their Tii. It was born Oct. 20th ‘71.
  6. In the USA, Carl Nelson of La Jolla Independent BMW has already worked with a Garret engineer to have the KKK exhaust housings remade. They can be purchased through... No need to have too many sources working on the same part. http://www.bimmerdoc.com I also hear that BMW Classic has a couple of customer 2002 Turbos in restoration and have been looking into remaking the turbos as well. Perhaps the inquiry by the German 2002 Turbo club is related to BMW Classic’s interest as well.
  7. During my visit to BMW Classic in September I herd directly from the head of BMW Classic that the Oxblood material is available and to contact BMW Classic directly to inquire. He showed me a set of TiSA seats recently recovered for a customer restoration project. https://shop.bmw-classic.de/bmw-classic/de_DE/index.html
  8. Unless you find one of the non rubber boots at an auto parts store that happens to fit your 50 year old axle perfectly, or you convert to regular CV joint axles, you really have no alternative but to use the clear boots. Those original early sliding joints use oil rather than grease. Rubber CV boots are designed for grease rather than oil. I’ve sean many failed joints because people used grease and rubber boots rather than clear boots and gear oil. I don’t have access to check current availability, but the last time I checked, BMW had replenished their stock of the clear boots, and at a reasonable cost considering it’s a part for a 50 plus year old car that they don’t make batches in the millions of.
  9. My July ‘67 1530962 had a smooth no date valve cover originally. i can totally see the 2-liter 2000CS and maybe the 2000TiLux having ribbed valve covers to denote the upper class of the newer larger engine. But, have seen original early ‘65 and ‘66 2000CS with smooth valve covers, including in factory literature. Don’t know about ‘67 and later ones though.
  10. I’ve heard, and have one but haven’t tried, that the ADDCO 7/8”/22mm ‘02 front bar fits NK. It’s the one you may have seen that drops down and forward of the nose. http://www.addco.net/aftermarket/catalog/bmw/ Jaymic does make bars specific for the NK, up to 22mm front. And E9 rear bars in 22mm also. https://www.jaymic.com/
  11. Here’s some shots of the 13x6 et15 magnesium Chromodora CD40 wheels on my parent’s Tii. They bought the wheels new in 1978. These are still unrestored, thus, they were originally quite a bit brighter and shinier. We have always had 205/60-13 tires on them, from Phoenix Stahlflex, Pirelli P6, Yokohama AVS Intermediate, to the current Toyo RA-1. The suspension is still the original stock springs, yet Koni reds, Alpina style aluminum fixed 1/2° fixed camber plates and the fenders have been mildly rolled. The current Toyos do rub the front fenders under hard cornering and on bumps and driveways if the wheels are turned.
  12. See everyone at Legends of the Autobahn tomorrow and at Festorics at the Monterey Motorsports Reunion on Saturday and Sunday. I brought my parent’s Tii.
  13. Wish I knew you had these for sale!...
