  1. Hey Moe-- I encourage you to preregister (we close preregistration in a week). The advantage is you save money and you proceed through check-in faster. We have 69 enthusiasts registered already.
  2. Hi Touringman-- Welcome to our community and BMW2002FAQ! You will find a number of resources at [http://www.bayarea02.com/service-providers/]. You can also find many comments, experiences and recommendations for all that you need by searching on FAQ. There are more and more Touring owners who we see at FAQ and Bay Area 02 events, so I also encourage you to participate in our shows, drives and meetings; I recommend you register for Swap & Show-21 coming up in a month.

  3. Not the 49 Mile Drive, BayArea 02's annual rally, comes to San Francisco again on December 11 (2nd Saturday in December). Watch this space for more event details as Rallymeister Pete Petras develops the route. Last year, meeting at the Presidio worked well so we might well gather there (it depends somewhat on construction at the parade grounds).

  5. Hi everyone-- Thank you to those who came today to give your cars a little fun. I know my car enjoyed the trip, in spite of Karl-the-Fog surrounding us on San Bruno Mountain and sometimes close along the coast. I saw many cell phones snapping photos and I encourage all of you to add them to the drive photo gallery at This first photo nicely shows us gathering at the Brisbane Marina but I know there are others, maybe even Erik's foggy video as we joined Cal Route-1. Thank you for adding your images! Larry
  6. Hi-- Thanks for participating and posting your 2 photos. I created a photo page for today's drive [ and I encourage you to post all of your photos there (you can see I borrowed your first photo to create the gallery). I'll make a comment on my first post in the '02discussion forum, asking all drivers to post theirs, too. It's fun to look at them!

    BayArea 02 MayDay Drive 2021

    Images from our MayDay Drive on 1 May 2021. Thank you to all participants and for each of these photos you shared!
  8. Hi Everyone-- I looks like the weather for our drive will be partly cloudy with temperatures in the mid-50's; it may also be a bit breezy. See you there! Larry

    Hi Brent-- I have no head count since we're not planning any reservations, such as for lunch. Basically, most BayArea 02 drives are just whoever appears can join the group. I'm expecting anywhere from about 5 cars to perhaps 20, but I'm not sure exactly how many. Our last 2 drives (September & December, 2020) had 20-30 cars appear and a subset drove a route. I'm expecting fewer next week since this drive is lower-key. If you are interested in who you might meet on MayDay, feel free to ask on the BayArea 02 page or in the general 02 discussion page (maybe as a question to my original post there). One thing I'm sure of, though, is I'll be there and pleased to say hello-- hope to see you there! Larry

As before, the address is 500 Sierra Point Parkway, along the Bay on the North side of Sierra Point. Preregister on Motorsportreg (watch this site for a link, perhaps in June). Preregistration is $25 while the on-site fee on 2 October will be $30.

But we strongly encourage anyone with a BMW of our classic vintage to bring your car to display. No matter how mundane your daily driver (it’s surprising how photogenic dirt, rust, crazed paint and other signs of age can be) or how social-media-ready your restoration looks. We do NOT judge your car so there will be no points for extra dirt, missing dirt, artistic (!?) rust or even matching luggage.

  12. Hi John— I agree, I expect SR-1 near HalfMoonBay to be snarled in traffic on popular weekends, such as when pumpkins are ripe or if the surf is high at Mavericks. That is why I drove the route late AM today and I found a few heavy traffic locations but never slow-and-go between Brisbane and HalfMoonBay. While traffic in Daly City seemed typical for a Saturday morning and some long traffic signals (in Pacifica and Pillar Point) clumped cars together, traffic moved at a reasonable pace. I did wait a couple of minutes when exiting the MontaraBeach parking lot for a traffic group to pass, but between groups it was clear. Driving back from Half Moon Bay a little after noon I found slow/stop & go traffic heading West on SR-92 (from the pass all the way down to SR-1), but I was going East and traffic was heavy but moving (passing by the nurserys and fruit stands) until the passing lane where it opened up to the speed limit. I appreciate your observation about a traffic jam, but based on my experience today I expect possibly heavy but moving traffic in the morning of 1 May as we drive from Brisbane to HalfMoonBay. Unless weather that day turns very hot around the Bay or over 75 degrees in San Francisco. Also, I noted that oceanside parking lots seemed mostly or completely full. That means a photo of 2002’s and NK cars lined up beside the sea may not be possible. But we can check out parking at PillarPointMarina to see if space permits aligned BMW’s. Larry
  13. Event Title: BayArea 02 Drive 1 May 2021 Event Location: 500 Sierra Point Parkway, Brisbane, California, 94005 Event Author: layers Event Date: 05/01/2021 10:00 AM to 05/01/2021 01:00 PM We have a MayDay drive! BayArea 02, in honor of our usual Swap & Show date, is planning a drive starting at the Brisbane Marina (500 Sierra Point Parkway, Brisbane 94005). While we are planning Swap & Show-21 this Fall, a low-key drive respecting Pandemic protocol will give our cars some fun. We are finalizing a route, probably West to California Route-1 then South to Half Moon Bay. While only about 27 miles, this route provides world-renowned costal views. It will give our cars a good opportunity to get some fresh air! We are not planning a lunch but there are ample opportunities for restaurants and takeout in Half Moon Bay. Important Pandemic note: • All of us must maintain proper social distance and wear a mask when outside our cars and during any social interludes along the way. No way do we want any of us getting ill from a drive! Stay tuned! ========================================== I drove our planned route this morning (10 April), verifying it worked OK and that Saturday morning traffic would work (unless the predicted temperature for 1 May turns it into a Beach Day for many in the Bay Area). The route seemed pleasant but not too long and traffic, although occasionally heavy in Daly City and collecting at a few long signals, never bogged down to stop & go. The only rotten traffic I found was Westbound on SR-92 (not our route or direction) and going home through San Francisco on US-101 and I-80. Please note that we will meet in the North parking area at the Brisbane (California...) Marina, the same area we typically have swappers at Swap & Show (at the end of Sierra Point Parkway, turn left to proceed to the last parking area). We're planning to leave at 10:00 AM (or maybe 5 minutes later, if we gab too long). The route ends in Half Moon Bay and while we are not planning a lunch, there are plenty of eateries in the Main St. area where we will end our drive. And remember, be courteous to your friends and follow proper social distance and mask recommendations! Larry BayArea 02 Drive 1 May 2021

  15. Hi-- Superbright LEDs has a whole page of different festoon-base bulbs (under car & truck vehicle lighting, look for festoon-base LED bulbs). Although some are not really festoon-base, the biggest other difference is the length. Note that different people measure the bulb dimensions in different ways, that is, either the Maximum Overall Length (MOL, the longest dimension) or between the mounting/connection clamps. Superbright includes links to dimensional drawings for all of their bulbs if you look carefully in their specifications, allowing you to choose the proper length to fit between your clamps. After you find the proper dimension you may also have a choice of Correlated Color Temperature (CCT, expressed in Kelvins). While the "color" you choose is up to you, I usually prefer a higher CCT than the yellowish incandescent bulbs (perhaps 2500K) that came with our cars. Larry
