  1. +1. Bosch red coil is what's recommended. Talk to Le Tran of 2002 GarageWerks; he's the unofficial 123ignition maestro/whisperer. Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  2. I've been thinking the same thing unless the "interior tweaks" are more involved than I can imagine. Even so, how complicated is it to reupholster the interior, replace the carpet, etc? Wknd job tops. Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  3. NM/NA, but very fair price (basically 35K USD) considering the current mkt. Shouldn't last long... https://www.dukeoflondon.co.uk/product-page/1973-bmw-2002-tii-1 Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  4. Agreed. Good shops will always have more than enough business. Patience is the name of the game I suppose. Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  5. Initially it was my intention to do so at some point. However, since I had the accident I'm not so inclined to do so. I think they definitely helped to an extent and as I almost daily drive it I'm a little paranoid at this point moving forward. Plus, it's how I remember the car as a teenager when I first saw it, including the wheels. There's a lot of sentimental value wrapped up in this one! Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  6. Alrighty, good to know. I ask because I got rear-ended pretty badly a few months ago and was recommended a local shop by a couple of well-respected and well-known members of the community. They also get quite a lot of insurance work funneled their way from Dinan so I figure their reputation is pretty solid. However, they said they'd be able to start working on the car in a month and it's been about two now and I still haven't dropped the car off. They said that it would take about a month or so once they started to do the work but I'm a bit suspect of that because I know how things go. I'm just hoping that it'll be done come late July/early August so I can take it to Legends and Festorics during Monterey car week. I wish you the best-please keep us updated with the progress!

  7. I'm curious to know how long you had to wait before they could start working on your car? Meaning, between the time that you spoke to them and agreed on what you wanted to have done and when you actually brought your car to the shop to commence work. Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  8. What's being done? Bodywork and full repaint? Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  9. This question has been a concern of mine recently as well, as work should begin soon to fix the rear end damage that occurred to my car a few months ago. I've already waited almost two months just to get my car in the shop and the work started, so that begs the question of how long the work will actually take once it commences.

  10. Yes, I remember when clean '66 GT350's were selling for 10-15K in the mid-80s, and 289 Cobras for 70-odd K. I desperately tried to convince my stepfather to purchase either as I knew even at the age of 13 that wouldn't last. Regarding GTO's, they had already crested the 100K mark by 1980, and within 10 years would be trading hands for over 10x that amount. Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  11. It will definitely be interesting to see what happens to the collector car market re: values and driving constraints over the course of the next decade (and further) as fuel becomes even more expensive and emissions/pollution laws/regulations become more restrictive.

  12. Right, which is what I was basically alluding to with tri-Chevys, early T-birds, '59 Caddies, muscle cars, etc (and more recently, air-cooled Porsches as you mentioned). As we all know, when those were new teenagers/recent college grads couldn't afford them but when they got to a certain age and had some disposable income to indulge those old dreams and desires, they did. Speculators and flippers always get pulled along with things like that which only increases values further, for better or worse. Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  13. I agree with Nick and Dang; there are completely valid points to both sides of the argument. I will say though that I knew if I wasn't able to get my most recent car at the price that I purchased it for, then I would be priced out of the community in short order as I don't have the deepest pockets in the world. Granted, it is a tii but even clean driver 02's are commanding a decent amount of money now. Regarding parts, I think that's a gripe that all share. As we all know some things available from BMW have gone through the roof price-wise over the last few years. That's been a bit of a game-changer as well especially if you only have the means to purchase a project which would then obviously entail the sourcing and purchading of that many more parts, new or used. It is what it is, supply and demand definitely being a component but not the only variable. It was inevitable that it would happen to 02's eventually, although they seem to have more multi-generational enthusiasts than say tri-Chevys or muscle cars for example. Those cars have largely peaked already with the exception of the most desirable examples. Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  14. Good to know as I will be replacing my headliner when I get some body work done which will include removing both front and rear windows. A little concerned about the cost though because of quality issues so I guess I'll have the upholstery shop sew the seams before it's even installed. Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  15. Steve, I do recall NY Nick's car-sorry I forgot to allude to it-I just thought that was the only documented Polaris car w/a tan interior. Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
