  1. I may be a bit of a promiscuous shopper. But over the last 3 years I have purchased LOTS of parts from Ireland, Blunttech, Maximillian, and indeed a bunch of stuff from Rogers. I wouldn't say I don't care about price, but I'm usually buying what I need from whoever has it when I need it and price is secondary. I've had great experience with all of these sellers, and I can say I've never had the slightest problem with Rogers. I've had the wrong parts shipped due to my own error, and I've parts that arrived defective. In each case, I had no problem getting a prompt return, replacement, or refund. So no customer service problems of any kind. I will continue to use Rogers and to recommend them. BTW, I just have to say that considering how old our cars are, it's pretty great that we have so many trusted suppliers for parts for them. How cool is it that we have other suppliers who are also 2020 hobbyists that we can turn to for advice and the parts we need? Makes me happy anyway...
  2. Looking for a good set of straight OEM seat rails for my '73 2002. I need the early style ones pictured that do not have tabs bent up at 90° angle at the end. Cosmetic condition is not important but must be laser straight with smooth mechanical action, all rollers intact and minimal pitting on the rails. Dirt and surface oxidation is fine, but I'm willing to pay more for a cleaner set. Anybody got a set of these sitting around in your spares stash? I am in Northern CA, so prefer North America.
  3. I won't be back to the shop where my car and parts stash are until later this week. But let me rummage around when I get down there and see if I can find them. I'll get back to you.
  4. Just to clarify, I never looked at the price when I initially replied. I simply responded and shared a supplier that I knew had what the poster was looking for. And for the record, I never "steered" them to paying a particular price. But since I shared the source information a full day before you replied, we both know full well that my doing so had nothing to do with you. More to the point, when the OP pointed out the high price, I actually even acknowledged it. Maybe I'm a little more thick skinned, but I've never considered it "haggling" or that someone was "busting my balls" when I've been made a fair offer below my asking price for a used part I've sold. It's simple, I've either accepted the offer, countered it, or declined it. No drama. No harm, no foul. But that said, here's a word of advice. If you think it's okay to accuse someone of astounding "hyprocosy" for having two different views about two completely unrelated matters, you may want to to look up the definition of the word. If that's the viewpoint your teaching your students, I think I understand why shop class is dying in our schools. I'm not interested in having a battle of wits with an unarmed person, so I have no further comment on the matter.
  5. I don't normally dignify personal attacks on my character with a reply. But in your case I'll make an exception since I've obviously offended your delicate sensibilities, or you wouldn't still be sniveling about this five months later. The question you should be asking is why would you blow off a local cash and carry buyer over a used part without even offering to counter a very reasonable and fair offer? But since you did, I took your advice and paid full retail for a new one. Problem solved, and life goes on. As for my referral to the OP, he asked for a source and I provided him one. Shockingly, I don't feel the least bit hypocritical for helping out another 02 hobbyist looking for help with no personal benefit to me. You should try it sometime.
  6. Jim Rowe built and tuned the KF in my mildly modified tii motor. I love it! It was built for reliability and driveability. It starts every time, idles, and even runs great on our crappy premium fuel here in CA. It's not for everyone, and I rely on my expert vintage BMW mechanic to keep it in tune. But its fun and it's pretty cool to be driving a full vintage setup.

  8. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1973-bmw-2002tii-55/ Nicely restored and fairly original '73 tii. The color and racing stripes may polarize some, but I personally think it's pretty classy looking. A nice set of tasteful upgrades (Recaros and E24 rear seats, new Euro bumpers, momo wheel, suspension, etc) that appear to have been done with good attention to detail. Dealer sale.
  9. What? No love for the plastic pizzas? I'm hurt.... I'm not sure if they are 13 or 14. Came of an early 3 series. I got them as part of a garage clean out buy. I'm not holding my breath, but I figured someone will want them for something sooner or later.
  10. Just spotted this on FB and thought I would pass it along.. Not KKK, but allegedly NOS pieces; one BAE and one Rayjay. If by some miracle one of them fit or could be made to work, might be worth it. https://www.facebook.com/groups/590776844359454/permalink/3150289275074852/?sale_post_id=3150289275074852
