  1. Got my note from the source: The BMW 2002 tii US VIN 2763751 was manufactured on April 9th, 1973 and delivered on April 17th, 1973 to the BMW importer Hoffman Motors Corp. in New York City. The original colour was Malaga, paint code 021. Hasn't changed much...
  2. Nope, came right up. And there's always the possibility it's a decent car. Someone nearby should be looking at it right now.
  3. If it had been 3 years ago, that likely would have been me. Now that I have relocated to Florida, it won't be. Rats.
  4. I was a SAAB dealer when I had my Turbo, and since the KKK unit was shot, we modified one of our Garrett units from our parts department for use on the 2002. It worked very well.
  5. It's settled, then. Irrespective of the silly viewpoint that one might choose whatever they currently own as being the best, the vast majority of the contributors here all agree that the '73 Tii is undeniably the clear winner. Um, yes, I do have one...why would you ask that? 🧐
  6. I wiped down the old girl's original paint, vacuumed the interior, checked everything over, and took it to the annual McKee Gardens car show in Vero Beach, FL. I had been asked to represent BMW in an exhibit titled "The Best Cars From 40 Different Manufacturers." I was astonished at the number of people who, walking by the car, would say something like, "I used to have a 2002, and I really miss it! Why did we ever sell it??" It was a fun and worthwhile day.
  7. Yeah, now that vehicles are being built so much bigger than they once were, due to safety and other concerns, we tend to forget how small our '02 sedans really are. That is, until you are right next to a humongous truck. Blocks the sun for a few minutes...
  8. My wife captured a shot of this red square-tail light for me on 2/18, having followed the car down Route 1 north of Vero Beach. Not many '02s in this area. Anyone here?

    Unrestored car with 80% original paint. (Doors were repainted below trim to remove dings years ago.) 137,000 miles. Recaro seats. Original engine. California car until I moved to FL in 5/17. Excellent condition throughout. I bought this car in 2/00 in the parking lot of a Von's supermarket in La Jolla, CA. I had left the owner a note under the windshield wiper, which said something to the effect that "If you decide to sell this car, please call me," with my phone number. As I was walking away, a woman behind me yelled, "Hey - did you just leave a note on my car?" The owner had come
  10. Don't know if he told you, but Keith Martin loves 2002s. He bought one from me about 6 years ago - a '73 Tii in its original color of Turkis. He's quietly looking for another one, if he can find a great deal, as he gave up the Turkis car when he and his wife split. Now she's showing it.
  11. Mark, I hope you will pass along my best regards to Bill. He'll recall my Turkis '73 that he rebuilt as well as my Turbo and Malaga Tii. I no longer live in the region and miss the activity there.
  12. It's always tough to figure how anyone really thinks they'll sell a car for over $25K with no more than 3 photos.
  13. Yet they let in a replica Cobra. Go figure...
  14. Ha. I bought the one just sent to British Iron a number of years ago off eBay, just because it seemed prudent to pick one up in case I ever wanted to install it. Never did. Also bought a front one, and it is hanging on the garage wall next to where the rear one used to. I suspect it's feeling lonely.
  15. Yep. And I remember selling my Polaris one for $27,500. Seemed like a good idea at the time...
