    2002 Beauty Shots

    Last weekend on a drive through the back roads after fixing my very sloppy shifter. I'm in love all over again!

    75 2002 for $4K

    NMNA but think it can be bought for even less and looks pretty dry. Good project for someone https://sandiego.craigslist.org/ssd/cto/d/1975-bmw-2002/6765618607.html

    What did you do to your 2002 today !

    Went for a drive after the rain stopped. Had fun with an new M2 that beat my ass pretty good, but did not stop giving me thumbs up.

    complete set chrome roundie bumpers

    Great deal and well bought. I paid (stole?) about the same for mine about 3 years ago and with lots of patience and elbow grease ended up driver condition.
  5. 100% agreed. I replaced the original plastic line a while ago with a hi pressure rubber one and routed it under the car the same as the feed line.
  6. None at all. The fan sucks air and is usually only needed for slower speeds or congestion. I am sure the fan runs while going down the highway, but not sure it does much as the airflow is great. You should not have any issues. I bought the largest fan I could fit that came with a thermoswitch from eBay and has worked perfectly.
  7. So one more very late follow up. I originally left the 02 shifter in there. After living with the slop for 4 years, I finally got fed up and installed the E30 shifter and secured the platform correctly. What a difference. Now the shifts are crisp and direct, and the shifter bounces back to the 3-4 gate in neutral as it should. This is how it should have been done from the get go. I think the hole for the shifter rod at the bottom of the 02 shifter is bigger than the rod pin, so the shifter amplified the slop at the bottom from about 1/2" to about 10" at the shifter knob. The moral of the story: use the E30 shifter! Now maybe I will look into a short throw.... maybe.

    MSD Upgrade No Tachnometer

    I posted my experience with a very inexpensive adapter after frying a couple of the more costly ones. Autosportlabs tach adapter install Four years later still working perfectly, hope this helps.

    Not really in my to-do list because I have a M42 swap, but this seems very interesting, I am sure you can drum up some interest with E21 and early (85-89) E30 owners. Subscribing to this thread....

    What did you do to your 2002 today !

    After 3 years of putting up with the sloppy shifter I finally got under the car and replaced the missing washers and also the stick shift for the E30 that should have gone in at the time of the swap. Now the throws are nice and direct with no slop as whereas before I had about 10” play IN GEAR!!!

    FS.Like New One Piece Dash

    Hmm. You may want to add a zero to the listing price. $85 made me look but when I saw the real price felt deceived..... nice dash though.

    Finally got the COP kit installed. Cleaned up the engine bay very nicely. Now I need to repaint the apron from the scratches the coil pack made.
  13. Ugh, just my luck as usual, missed out on the $114 price, they are now $395. 😡
