  1. They are two piece; overlap in the center. I don’t know the current availability. Paul Wegweiser of Maximillian Importing would be able to check current price, availability and sell you one. https://www.bmwmobiletradition-online.com/
  2. After having another look, my 1800A’s hood badge may be one piece. I’ll look at it in person when I get another chance in the daytime.
  3. Duggi, My 1800A was built June 3rd ‘66. Dad’s TiSA was built May 26th ‘65.
  4. And, here’s the one on my ‘66 1800A. Still two piece, but silver rather than brass colored and no serifs.
  5. Here’s an example of an original ‘65 hood emblem. Trim ring and serifs included.
  6. Cool, doesn’t show up for me. Could it be the mobile version?
  7. Why does my signature not display when I post? Is there a setting I haven’t found?
  8. There are aftermarket/replica round ones available new. They just don’t have VDO stamped in them like the originals. They only crack when kept full of water... From time to time I do see NOS round ones available, but they are date coded and the majority of the NOS ones I’ve seen are from 1981, likely the last year they were produced. http://www.rogerstii.com/bmw-2002-round-windshield-washer-fluid-reservoir/ There are new rectangular ones available from BMW that many vendors sell. Those have VDO stamped in them. This vendor also sells an aftermarket choice which does not. http://www.rogerstii.com/bmw-2002-e9-windshield-washer-fluid-reservoir/
  9. In my humble opinion, a 2000TI is closer to an 1800TiSA than an 1800Ti. But that may just be me.
  10. I believe that's Neil's old white 2000TI that is in @rey949 's collection now. And, I worked on that red 1800Ti for Sean in like '09 or early '10, but don't know of the whereabouts now It was pretty darned rusty, the seats were definitely the best part!.... PM sent.
  11. They’re the same round VDO bottles as any other 2002 of the same year.
  12. It was wonderful to see you there Friday. I also missed last year, because my family and I wanted to see the sky go dark in the middle of the day.
  13. "serviced by a mechanic who has tools" Oh please, don't get me started; unless you really want my assessment...
  14. I have had no problems reusing the nuts bolts when rebuilding brake calipers... as long as they're not too rusty. Since BMW doesn't acknowledge the orings between the caliper halves in their parts system, it becomes a game of finding another car company that does... Porsche comes to the rescue with the part number 901 351 928 10. http://www.rmeuropean.com/Products/90135192810-MFG33.aspx?gclid=CISdmuKw0dMCFQKOaQodZLAIGA
  15. Well, how did you mount it? Did you use a rubber bushing between the clamp and body?
  16. Sorry to be a wee it late to this thread.... The Pierburg pumps have a cone shaped filter screen in the inlet side that can get clogged. Same as a Tii pump and many other Pierburg and Bosch style pumps. I'd be willing to bet that was the problem with the Pierburg in question.
  17. I've used these Pierburg electric fuel pumps with carburetors many times. These have the correct fuel pressure already, so no pressure regulator required. And yes, they're quiet, as long as you use a rubber mounting bushing. I just recommend wiring in a safety relay of some sort. I personally like the VW Rabbit one that already has a ATC fuse holder built in. All it needs is a RPM signal. http://www.autohausaz.com/search/product.aspx?partnumber=90160810600
  18. Here's the seat page from the 1967 BMW accessories book.
  19. You must have a transistor coil from a BMW of that generation to work with this ignition. Basically any Bosch coil from any electronic ignition car from the late '70s to the early '90s will work as far as I remember. Many of them have stickers on them that say "Transistorized".
  20. Black interior also came in Bristol cars, at least it did in my Oct '66 1600-2. I don't know about newer years though... While I have not seen the paint and upholstery brochures... I have seen an original Model71 '02 in Bristol.
  21. 185/70-13 would be a fine choice on 13x5 or 5.5 or 6 wheels on an '02. Some of us like to squeeze as much rubber under the fenders as possible. By most tire size vs. wheel charts a 205/60-13 is advised to fit on 13x5.5 to 7". Tire companies used to have recommended tire width for wheel width charts, but this is what I found on the internet with a quick search. Hope This Helps. http://www.tyresizecalculator.com/tyre-wheel-calculators/tyre-size-for-rim-size-width-calculator
  22. TireRack is carrying Vredestien Sprint Classics in 205/60hr13 now... Yes, an H rated street 205/60-13! Currently at $143.57 ea. https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Vredestein&tireModel=Sprint+Classic&partnum=06VR3SC&vehicleSearch=false&fromCompare1=yes
