      sorry for the delay....I work weird hours most days....


      I do have a nice front bumper for $100.  It is off my car that I removed and stored it.  I can take some pics probably tomorrow..

  3. I've done a search on the discussion board for "2588521", however, only this thread pops up. I wish the bmw2002registry was still up and running. Would be interesting to see if that VIN# is still around or if the owner is on the faq.......
  4. Andreas Reply: Thank you for your reply. The VIN 2588521 was issued to another BMW 2002 US, painted in Riviera and delivered to Hoffman too. I've seen crossed-out VINs before, mostly done later by the vehicle's owners but a few obviously original and done at the factory. It's certainly rare but happened even in the 1980's sometimes. The numbers were stamped by hand so if the person doing this is still a bit asleep for example, it can happen.

  5. Update: Andreas, Can you please provide me with any information on my 1973 2002 Vin #2588512? Also Vin #2588521, as that Vin# was crossed out at the factory (see picture provided). Thank you! Response: Thank you for your email. The BMW 2002 US VIN 2588512 was manufactured on February 9th, 1973 and delivered on February 20th, 1973 to the BMW importer Hoffman Motors Corp. in New York City. The original colour was Riviera, paint code 036. The number on the chassis looks indeed like it has been crossed out at the factory, especially since the numbers on the manufacturer's plate and the engine look original too. We hope this information is helpful for you. Yours sincerely, Andreas Harz My reply: Thank you Andreas! Do you happen to know if VIN#2588521 was ever reissued to another vehicle at the factory? I will keep you updated as soon as possible.....

    Has a factory double VIN # with 2588521 crossed out. As far as the lineage, I am told that I am the 4th owner. Has spent its life in SoCal.
  7. I’ve placed an inquiry into BMW archives for both VINs and will post as soon as I hear back...
  8. sorry to bring up an old thread, however, my car has this as well....did Andreas shed any light? My car is missing the steering wheel pad with the VIN, and the door sticker is not legible.... My stamp appears that maybe the factory worker suffered from dyslexia....or just misplaced the last two digits...
  9. I am not by any means an expert on the injectors, however, when I cleaned mine, I just took it apart and stuck the two halves, along with the little washer (shim?) into my ultrasonic cleaner using Seafoam as the cleaning agent. I did not know the status of the injectors before cleaning, as I purchased the car non running. I did this as a precautionary measure as the car had been sitting for years. The solvent was visibly dirty, and when I got the car running, all seemed fine as far as fuel supply. NOTE: I did NOT fill my ultrasonic tank (7.5 gal.) with solvent, but suspended a small beaker with Seafoam in it.
  10. Thanks Jeff & Crew for the open house! Always a great group to hang out with!!
  11. Another option....snapped this pic off a poster in an antique shop in Venice, CA couple weeks ago... Not as cool as the roundel....
  12. The one I pushed in did not have much resistance, probably just the grease that I filled the hole with. Like you mentioned, it may not be riding on the inner race of the bearing. The one side I did have to pound in, seems to have been a newer stub axle....replaced at some point.
  13. I replaced my rear bearing today and while putting the stub axles back in, one went in real easy (pushed it by hand), while the other, I had to hit it real hard with a rubber mallet. The sleeve on the difficult one appeared to be lined up as I was watching the other end come through. Is the shaft bent? If it is bent, now do I need to replace the bearings that I just forced the shaft into? Or do I need to be concerned about the one that went in real easy? The inner and outer bearings (and shim) were all set in the trailing arm. Both seem to spin about the same, once the hub is slightly torqued down. TIA
  14. The Fart Department....LOL Car has some old school CA exempt plates........
