  1. I’d trade an 02 for a unimog great pick up OP. Definitely jealous.
  2. Good luck with Sale! I lent the original alpina headers for this reproduction copy. If it entices someone to purchase, I can throw in a brand new stainless IE exhaust system (side exit), also at a discount. Happy to assist your sale if someone sees the benefit of both. Cheers, Ryan
  3. 2002 4-speed driveshaft with a modified front section (originating from the same e21 the trans was pulled from). simple modification. Most driveshaft shops charge about $300 for this Modification/balance job. you need to measure the correct driveshaft length for your car once the box is installed to ensure it all fits correctly. There are a few “off the shelf” measurements that should work, but I’ve seen more than a handful of guys who have had issues with these standard driveshaft lengths. Not all cars were built the same and lengths can vary. Good luck!
  4. You're in the clear. I was under the assumption that a PPI was a variable here, in which case it seems not to be.
  5. maybe this flies for higher-priced cars, but I’m guessing Marc’s car was in the $5-10k range, being sold as-is, with no consideration for a PPI by either buyer or seller. I’d wager that price was agreed upon sight unseen, and both payment and pick up were to happen simultaneously. A deposit was made prior to pick up and buyer likely broke the contract (yes, a deposit denotes a contract between buyer and seller), thus nullifying the rules of said contract. If a PPI were agreed upon, the buyer would have taken the process more seriously and a second round of negotiations would have taken place post PPI. but OP never got to that part. And now buyer is being a little bitch. And Marc is stubborn and from a completely different generation from buyer and won’t bow down to the empty threats of the punk buyer because (insert hard working generational meme differentiating boomer and millennial culture and work ethic). Gentlemen, what we are witnessing here is a cultural shift in transactional ethics. And I love it.
  6. Principle. The customer is not always right and they need to know this. There are consequences for being a shit transactor.
  7. Did he pay via goods n services or friends n family? That's a big factor.
  8. We all over compensate in some way or another
  9. probably friend zone her. I need a little chaos in my life. I can hear the radio, yeah. Anything under 3rd gear pinned is fine. Anything above and I’m looking straight and going fast. I managed to swap out my alternator and cooling fan today. The alternator in the car was fine and worked great, but it was ugly. I had a spare tii alternator sent out for a bit of tweaking. Aside from being “rebuilt”, I had it juiced up to put out just over 100amps at peak. This probably wasn’t necessary, but at $185 for all the work, I didn’t mind. Now I have a pretty alternator installed and I can’t be mad at that. I went ahead and replaced the bushings too. Gutted the old bushing material in prep for the IE poly bushings. Almost complete also managed to swap out the old cooling fan for a new, nice fan. No idea what was going on with the old fan, but the tips and ends were being chewed up considerably. Hopefully the new fan lasts. It’s the small of the two sizes. The non-tropical variant. everything is back in and running great. next up, rebuild speedo gauge with correct speed read out (3.91lsd makes the speedo read about 10mph faster), swap one a new turn signal relay, and chase down an intermittent alternator light issue under the dash. Sometimes it stays on, sometimes it stays off. Need to fix this.
  10. Not that I'm aware of. I have owned two cars with them already installed, so I've never actually installed them myself. But I'll say that they drive fantastic. I know IE sells what you'll likely need. Beyond that, I'm not sure.
  11. If you’re staying with 13” tires, poly is encouraged around both the front control arm bushings, rear trailing arms, and sway bars. Trust me on this. It’s NICE. Makes driving a dream. Sporty but not harsh at all. I’ve gone through every type of suspension known to 2002s and a nice stock-ish set up with just a bit of poly is the sweet spot. stay away from poly in places like thrust arms, rear subframe bushings, and engine mounts. Those are no-go zones.
  12. I’ll see you in July
