  1. I highly recommend keeping the AC for the future caretaker of your car. if you want to remove it, keep the system on the shelf. Rob Siegel’s latest book, “Just needs a recharge” is a great primer on how to get your AC going again.
  2. Check out photo #217 of the left frame rail. It looks like a poor patch job or Bondo. The car looks like it needs a needs a new left frame rail. With the body work done in Rochester NY and having lived near Rochester for 4 years, I would be VERY concerned that this is a refurbished what we called a WINTER RAT. I would be afraid that paint is hiding a LOT of ROAD SALT DAMAGE. Beautiful paint! Maybe this car will set a new price standard for 2002’s. I hope I can sell my ‘02 for this kind of $$ someday.
  3. Throw a pint of diesel fuel or Marvel Mystery Oil in the tank (10 gal) and it will run better all the time. In the summer it will also help prevent vapor lock. This tip is from Great Race tech Randy Rundle. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. My poly motor mounts broke. I have since replaced them with OEM motor mounts. Inspect them often. My driver side poly mount failed suddenly far from home. I had to wire tie the mount to make the 200 mile trip. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. Those are stitched panels, not OEM. Someone re-did the original panels. Is the rest of the interior the same color? What color is the car? That would give us some idea where to begin. Most ‘02’s had black or tan interior. Also some blue. Good luck matching. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. What is the DOT date on the tires? I try not to use anything over 10 years old. Some say 8. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. Either option will work. Thanks for updating my figures. I stand corrected. i just looked at my receipt. I was remembering $1595 as the total cost. Not considering the core deposit or installation. i paid $1595 for a rebuilt and warranted VLS differential, a 500 core deposit, plus installation at Metric Mechanic. Great folks to deal with!

    To iinca, Yes I received your pm, however Jesse indicated on the original ad that he wanted one of the other radiators and requested photos. Another person also asked about radiators on the original ad, but I have not heard from him. Since you backed out of the original sale, due to shipping cost, this places you at number 2. With professional packing and shipping this cost may be near the original #’s you balked at for a tested radiator. I am making no money on this. I am doing this as a favor for the 2002 community.

  9. Nice paint job. Metric Mechanic will sell you a completely rebuilt LSD with gearing of your choice for just a little more money. With a warranty.

    I have 3 radiators. Numbered 1,2&3. Number 1 has a chunk out of the engine side . Number 2 has some fin damage from a fan strike and appears to be the best of the bunch. Number 3 is an aftermarket 3 core radiator that is thicker than the others. This may need an electric pusher fan based upon engine fan clearance. The radiators are free for pickup in Huntsville AL. If you would like them shipped, you need to pay for packing and shipping. The folks that posted have first dibs. If not interested, I will repost on the FAQ, then if no one wants them they are going to the scrap yard. Frank
  11. This one even has the reinforcement doubler above the wheel well. The new OEM quarter panels from BMW don’t have that. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Jesse, I have not forgotten you. I will try to get a picture taken this Friday or Saturday. I have to move a bunch of stuff in the shed to get to the radiators. Frank Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Jesse, I have about 4 more radiators in various condition that have not been checked. One is a 3 core and thicker than the others. I inherited the radiators from a guy that used to race 2002’s in CA and they were his spares. I originally was going to ship the radiators to Curt Ingram to use as cores and to get a radiator out of the deal. Unfortunately Curt passed away years ago and I still have the radiators.. If interested, I can provide photos. I will give you the radiator of your choice to support the ‘02 community if you pay for packing and shipping. Otherwise they may go to the scrap metal guys. FYI one of the original purchasers for this radiator backed out after he found that shipping from Alabama to California was $50. With professional packing, it may be more than that. Glad to help out.
