  1. Hi Steve-- I'll help you look for an author! Larry
  2. Ben & Wendell-- If you just show up at the start I'll hand you the route instructions. I'll also post them and the photo key on FAQ within a day or two following the rally. Brian-- Are you bringing your family, including your eagle-eye kids, with you?
  3. Hi everyone-- See [https://www.bmw2002faq.com/forums/topic/269383-not-the-49-mile-drive-2020-on-12-december-2020/] for the latest details. We will meet at 9:30AM in the Presidio across Moraga Ave, from the Officer's Club (50 Moraga Ave.). Larry

  5. Event Title: Not the 49-Mile Drive-2020 Event Location: Main Post, 50 Moraga Ave, San Francisco, California, 94129 Event Author: layers Event Date: 12/12/2020 12:00 AM See [ Not the 49-Mile Drive-2020
  6. Not the 49 Mile Drive, BayArea 02's annual rally, comes to San Francisco again on December 12 (2nd Saturday in December). At about 9:30 A.M. we will meet at a new location: in The Presidio across the street from the Officer’s Club (50 Moraga Ave., the Moraga Parking Lot). From here you can collect route instructions with driving protocol and can purchase a NT40MD-20 T-shirt or a BayArea 02 mask. Rather than a driver's meeting we will hand out a driving protocol sheet; all cars will be off by 10:00 AM. After encountering some major, minor and probably weird roads and alleys around San Francisco (we never leave The City) we will meet again in a parking lot to review the photos in the handout that each navigator will have numbered during the rally in the order of observation. Note: in deference to the pandemic, this year does NOT include lunch! Pandemic rules: if anyone is at all sick, please do NOT come! Wear your mask at all times when outside; social distance at least 6Ft.; clean your hands often. Please be careful— we do NOT want any spread of the corona virus from or to anyone! Rallymeister Pete Petras has our rally route almost finalized. He works in The City so he can easily encounter the fun and delightful highways, byways and avenues that help us discover hidden gems, gorgeous views and surprising streets that make San Francisco such a unique adventure for all of us living in the Bay Area. Join us for the fun rally, wave at your friends from a social distance and learn and enjoy some of San Francisco’s road history and quirks. We recommend driving with a navigator from your family, so the driver can drive and the crew can give turn instructions and watch for the rally photo locations to number in viewing order. Solo drivers are also welcome. Kids are always welcome to ride along and provide keen eyes! Be sure to highlight 12 December on your calendar for the NT49MD-2020 rally! Larry Ayers Note: You can see a few photos from NT49MD-2019 at [https://www.bmw2002faq.com/forums/topic/253416-nt49md-2019%E2%80%94-not-the-49-mile-drive-saturday-14-december-20/].

  7. Hi-- I can only comment about the smog test places my wife visited in Walnut Creek for her 2003 525i (no one needs to smog a tii in California....). Smog-N-Dash at 2040 North Main St Unit #26, Walnut Creek CA 94596 [https://www.smogndash.com/]. A coupon helped the cost for her OBD-2 car; a 1976 2002 will cost more. I believe they were closed for a month or two by CARB for an infraction. If you go, make sure you understand how to drive to their small shop which is really out of the way. Star Smog & Lube at 1225 Parkside Dr., Walnut Creek, CA 94596 [http://walnutcreekstarsmog.com/]. My wife negotiated a good price without a coupon and said they were very friendly and pleasant. Next to Tire Rack and they share a parking lot with Wolfgang's service (for 2002's and other cars). Good luck! Larry
  8. Hi Mucci-- Welcome to the Bay Area! Steve Kupper organizes Neue Klasse Kaffe from time to time, often in the South Bay. You will also see his byline as our Webmaster, the fellow who brought BMW2002FAQ into being and the guru who maintains it. He posted his photos under our "Images" tab; see above. And be sure to mark your calendar for Not the 49-Mile Drive in San Francisco on 12 December. Larry
  9. Hi-- I had my late '73 2002 appraised after my accident by Zachary Romer (Automobile Appraisal Association (925) 935-2121). He provided a slightly high appraisal and after the insurance "appraisers" did not come close to a fair price, I paid his extra fee to cover the referee appraisal. Zach came to my town, Walnut Creek, where we met with the referee appraiser (John Baldizan [[email protected]]) to show him my 3 folders holding 36 years of records. John later saw a very similar '73 at Coupe King and decided my car was worth as least as much as that one, extremely close to my initial personal appraisal (slightly less than Zach and about 1.5 times the insurance "last & best offer"). I also hired Zach to appraise my '74 tii, so we have a starting place if I ever need it. I would recommend Zach. Larry
  10. BayArea 02 has partnered with 002Rescue to conduct a drive on 12 September! Actually, we have 2 drives available, a NorthBay drive led by Eric Friis and a shorter Eastbay drive led by yours truly. Important notes: · If you plan to participate in the NorthBay drive, please register on the 002Rescue Facebook page [Facebook reg page for NorthBay drive]. The shorter, simpler EastBay drive does not require preregistration. · Both drive routes will meet at Ft.Baker between 7:30 and 8:00 AM; meet at [Ft. Baker- Marina Rd. loop, Cavallo Point], South of the Discovery Museum on the Marina Rd. loop near the water. · All of us must maintain proper social distance and wear a mask at the drivers meeting and during any social interludes along the way. No way do we want any of us getting ill from a drive! · You may bring your lunch (a good idea for the NorthBay drive) or for the EastBay drive you can alternately purchase take-out at the end in Martinez. If you choose to eat with others, remember Social Distance Guidelines. In theory the weather will be partly cloudy with moderate temperatures in the 80’s—good for a drive! Larry Larry

  13. Swap & Show-2020 is now completely cancelled! Like so many other events, Swap & Show-2020 was postponed until 12 September. Although in May and June the pandemic seemed to be waning, by mid July it's rising again and the county and state governments give no hint of allowing even outdoor semi-large events (except for smaller religious services; does Swap & Show qualify?). Please mark your calendars for 12 December for another Not the 49-mile Drive (perhaps social distanced but food is a question mark right now) and 1 May 2021 for the next Swap & Show at the Brisbane Marina.
  14. Hi Clay-- The 10-Watt domelight bulbs have a festoon base and are nominally 41mm long. Note that various manufacturers (especially LED manufacturers) may measure slightly differently. Sometimes they are called "C5W" and the incandescent versions are rated 100 lumens. Larry
  15. Hi-- If you look at [http://www.bayarea02.com/service-providers/], you will find a list of service providers (not comprehensive). I have never selected one in San Francisco but I will comment that Auto Dynamik is a BayArea 02 sponsor. Personally, I typically drive a ways to have friends complete work that is increasingly beyond my ability but there are certainly reasons to select very local service. Larry
