  1. We're planning to have some T-shirts for sale at NT49MD-19, white Gilden-brand cotton shirts with a full-front screen print. No pre-orders this year, just bring $10 cash or check. While we ordered more than we printed last year we do not have large quantities of each size (ranging from Adult Small to at least 1 size XXL). Hey, we're about 8 days away-- see you at Ocean beach!

  2. Event Title: NT49MD-2019— Not the 49 Mile Drive, Saturday 14 December, 20 Event Location: Ocean Beach, San Francisco, California Event Author: layers Event Date: 12/14/2019 12:00 AM See this discussion post for Not the 49-Mile Drive 2019 details.

  4. Not the 49 Mile Drive , BayArea 02's annual rally, comes to San Francisco again on December 14 (2nd Saturday in December). We will meet at OceanBeach as in previous years, between 9 and 9:30 AM. Many of you may recall that we assemble across The Great Highway from Beach Chalet on the West end of Golden GatePark. Fulton St. is the cross street and turning left from Fulton St. onto Great Highway , the entrance to the OceanBeach parking lot is immediately from the extreme right lane. Following our driver's meeting (navigators and family welcome), all cars will be off by 10:00 AM. After discovering some major, minor and potentially weird roads around San Francisco (we never leave The City) we will meet again for lunch at a restaurant and review the photos in the handout that each navigator will have numbered during the rally in the order of observation. Rallymeister Pete Petras is working diligently on our rally route which is almost finalized. He works in The City so he has many fun and delightful highways, byways and avenues readily at hand to help us find the hidden gems, gorgeous views and surprising streets (and maybe some awkward allies) that make San Francisco such an intriguing adventure for all of us living in the Bay Area realm. Join us for the fun rally, see your friends, learn and enjoy some of San Francisco’s road history and quirks, and, of course, share your BMW tales. We recommend driving with a navigator (Wells Fargo would say someone riding "shotgun", but BMW did not make Wells Fargo stage coaches), 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, although there could be a navigator or two available before drivers get underway. Kids are always welcome to ride along, provide keen eyes and share lunch! To see photos from previous “NT49MD” rallies, look at [http://www.bmw2002faq.com/topic/174801-2015-bay-area-2002-not-the-49-mile-scenic-drive/#entry1079809 ] and [https://www.bmw2002faq.com/forums/topic/184275-not-the-49-mile-drive-2016/]. Watch FAQ’s BayArea 02 Forum for the latest details [http://www.bmw2002faq.com/forums/forum/30-bayarea02/ ] but be sure to highlight 14 December on your calendar for the NT49MD-2019 rally!

  7. Note that the difference between HD and Sport Bilstein shocks is the distance the shock will extend. HD shocks are for OEM or somewhat shorter springs while Sport shocks go with the short springs for a track suspension. Larry
  8. Hi Greg-- Sometimes the problem is the bulb and sometimes an apparently fine lamp connection is poor. As mentioned, a poor connection is often from the auxiliary lamp mount to chassis ground but may also be within the lamp (the problem with my H2 bulbs in a pair of Cibie 95 foglamps; when I asked a Cibie engineer about the problem he simply said to get a new bulb holder). If I were in your shoes, I would check a bare bulb by connecting it to a battery or power supply. If you use an alligator clip lead (or some other means) to hook the bulb wire lead to battery+, and your test light clip to battery-, then if you hold the bulb base and VERY momentarily touch the test light probe to the bulb base, a quick flash will show that you need not discard the bulb. A failed bulb could be a poorly connected wire lead (for the H3 bulb) or could be a secretly broken filament. The filament wire is sturdy and may hold a broken part together so it looks good but does not complete an electric circuit. Also, the filament wire may have a break where it is welded to the molybdenum pad that allows a bulb seal around the electric wires. Larry
  9. Hi Greg-- I'm glad you found the problem and your lamps are working! But a little clarification: a halogen bulb IS an incandescent bulb. The key differences to halogen and regular incandescent are adding some halogen gas to the bulb interior and using a high-temperature glass, like quartz (or Vycor or aluminosilicate), to allow the glass to get close enough to the filament so the halogen cycle works without softening the envelope. And as you probably know, touching a quartz bulb can make it fail from the oils on your skin (it can devitrify, weakening and diffusing the bulb; it could explode from the 30 or more PSI inside). Now that you know more about halogen bulbs, I STRONGLY suggest you replace your amber-colored "fog" lamps. Amber is a proper color for signalling or marking lamps such as turn signal, parking or daytime running lamps. True foglamps are either white or selective yellow (like older French or Japanese headlamps). See [Daniel Stern on foglamps and lamp colors]. I will note that the Cibie lamps sold by Daniel Stern are good, but I'm not a fan of the H2 bulbs (well, the H2 bulb holders that corrode excessively from the very hot bulb contacts) Cibie has in many of their smaller lamps.

    Hello everyone-- Here is a location where you can add your photos from Swap & Show 2019. It will be more convenient to locate later than a thread in the general discussion area. Be sure to add your name so we know who you are! Larry
