    Sent a PM at 3:15 PST so it looks like Hal and I might have tied 😀 I guess the seller will have to decide the tie breaker.

    WTB 6 fuse wiring harness

    I need a complete harness for an early 2002 with 6 fuse block. Looking for one in reasonably good condition. I don't mind doing a little clean up and minor repair but would like it to be complete with no missing components.
  3. Great discussion. A question I have is, who imported BMWs to Canada before BMW NA came into being? Was it Max Hoffman or another individual or did BMW AG have a direct distribution network set up North of the border?

  5. Check with Connor at Vintage Autobahn. He just acquired a large collection of NOS parts and I think there was a new 6 volt generator in one of the boxes. Also, I got one a while back from Double 02 Salvage in Hayward.

    How many are left?

    A Ti is at the very top of my wish list. Having owned one many years ago (now in Rey's collection) I know how rare they are. As to your question, I have no idea and I doubt anyone else does with certainty. I remember that back in the 90s there was an informal sig and the consensus back then was maybe 20 total in North America. I think that was just an educated guess. They are out there though. This one is at a shop in the Bay Area and has apparently been for sale for a while: https://sfbay.craigslist.org/pen/cto/d/1970-bmw-2002ti-silver/6616164901.html Delia mentions it in a 2016 post. I spoke to the seller yesterday. He seemed like a good guy and I think ended up with the car as an abandoned project left my an owner who ran into difficulties. The seller sent me about 50 images and based on the VIN and some details it does appear to be a legit Ti. I decided that it was a little too rough for me to take on but given the values and depending on your welding skills, it could make sense. Sadly, the original engine seems long gone, replaced by a rebuilt 2.0. I didn't ask if it had the correct 121 head. Also the original non-snorkel nose has been replace with a standard 02 part. But, the air filter housing brackets are present on the driver's inner fender and I could see the boxed trailing arms. It is a car that deserves resurrection, I believe, but you would have a hard time making the math work given the non-matching engine. Still, as your post says: "how many are left?"
  8. I checked the pair I bought and they are left/right, so I can't help. I wish I could remember how many pair we had before the sale started. I seems unlikely Andy would have bought two of the same side based on all the other things we saw while setting up. I'll add my thanks to everyone who came out for this event. The PNW 02 group really stepped up to help Cathy and her family.
  9. Tom, I sold him that engine and yes, that mileage is correct. Regarding the original question, having built an M2 back in the late nineties, I said then that if I had it to do over, I would have built a nice M10 with side-drafts, cam, etc. While I love the S14, it belongs in an E30M3 but heck, I'm old school obviously.

  12. I wondered the same thing regarding a 2002ti. We know there's at least one museum worthy example in the U.S

    Walloth shows two of the pieces on their site. They used to have all available and maybe will again.
