  1. Hi guys, Here's a pair of Made-in-Germany, European spec headlight buckets for 2002 and derivatives, including the NKs with round headlamps. For those of you splitting hairs and looking for a high level of originality, you will notice the early glass pattern, with the separate and accentuated vertical glass flutes on the bottom, the early Hella logo and no H4 markings. The H4 dual-filament bulbs came out in '71 or '72. These lamps were designed to take the earlier P45t bulbs. Of course, you can now get H4 dual filament bulbs in a P45t base, as one of my headlamps shows and includes in the sale. I bet that German-made Osram bulb (no idea how old it is but came with when I bought them years ago) will outlast some of us... They both have the provision for the 4W 'city lamp' providing that romantic nighttime faint glow seen in all European cities and villages of yesteryear. One of the lamps is missing the base where the bulbs mount but it always looked to me that a base from any 7" H4 lamp could be harvested and mounted on the three preserved mounting tabs on the reflector. The lamp missing said base also has a *slightly* cloudy reflector (hard to even notice in photos). These reflectors turn up on German Ebay once in a while. The glass on both is almost new. I see no scratches, gouges or marks of any kind. They can be disassembled and the buckets sent out for zinc plating to make them look new. Asking $385 OBO for the pair, plus shipping.
  2. In the interest of market transparency for these infrequently-traded cars, I'll post that the car sold the day the auction ended to the high bidder for $24K. He is a member of the BMW Vintage CCA and I couldn't be happier that it went to him. Thanks all for the comments and interest.
  3. Sorry Michael I do not know...
  4. Thanks for posting your thoughts Andrew; good to hear from you.
  5. You know...there are other car companies besides bae-em-vae...
  6. Yep. Ran the whole cycle... Simplifying my life a bit. Pruning back to six classics.
  7. Hi everyone, Take a look: https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1966-bmw-1800/ Luis
  8. Hi guys, up up for sale is a pair of NOS rear shocks. Bought them in error thinking they would fit my ‘66 NK. They don’t, they are for post ‘66 NK and 2002s. $35 for the pair plus shipping. They look like new and offer the right amount of resistance when operated by hand.
  9. The square section rings that go between the caliper halves are available at Walloth and IIRC, Eric would've also sold me some.
  10. Naz, I've not yet rebuilt my NK calipers but I have rebuilt similar ATE calipers from my E9 (Coupe) and E3 (3.0 Si) and at that time spoke to Eric at PMB where he restores more ATE calipers than anyone and he indicated the bolts are not stretch bolts and he doesn't replace them. You can read and see pics of my E9 rebuild on the E9 board here: http://www.e9coupe.com/forum/threads/stock-caliper-rebuild.17389/ How was your braking before the rebuild? Luis
  11. HANS: If you want a 'normal' length 200mm battery ground strap I can get that, or most any other standard length you'd like.
  12. Hi Guys, I'll go ahead and get 4 made up for Nick, AlfaGTA and DasFrogger and an extra one for a straggler. HANS: I don't believe the 12V cars ahd a long ground strap arrangement like the 6V cars, did they...? Luis
  13. Sorry I did not see this post until now. Yes I have some. You can PM me and we can exchange details.
  14. I've been running 6 volts, with points, for 6 years without issue. You can't let the battery get weak so give it a charge every so often. It may need replacing, they spin slow even when new so it's hard to tell but the starting voltage drop makes it hard for the coil to generate a good spark if you have a slightly weak battery. What 6 volt parts are you looking for? There are no 6V specific parts in the ignition, other than the coil, and the old ones seem to go for a loooong time.
