  1. It looks like Stevens Canyon Road is closed east of Paradise, so if we want to go to Paradise, an out and back from Elbe is probably the only option. We could continue east from Paradise to the road closure for a little more driving on nice roads. Another option is the Hwy 12>123>410 loop. Maybe a stop at Sunrise if we chose that route. That loop would probably be too much for Portland folks though. I'm up for anything, I just want to get out for a drive. I drove over the North Cascades Hwy to Winthrop on Monday morning, pretty much no traffic, a glorious drive.
  2. James: Sorry for going MIA, no cell/internet for the was week. I prefer St Helens, but am up for either route. I'm with Nathan, if we chose the St Helens route, meeting at 8 am is a good idea.
  3. Thanks for organizing this James. As far as Ranier vs St Helens, driving around Paradise on a Sunday in August might be pretty frustrating, there could be a lot of slow traffic. I agree though, that side of Ranier should be better traffic-wise than the 410 side. St Helens will likely be much less crowded, but it's a long haul from Seattle. Although an even longer haul, 131/FR25 south from Randle around the east side of St Helens might be the best driving road in the state. If you do that whole loop down to Woodland, it's a very long day from Seattle. Maybe too much of time commitment for many, but it's worth the effort to do sometime if you have never driven it. I'm happy with either option, maybe slightly favoring Paradise (despite my traffic bitching). it will be good to get out with the 02 folks.
  4. I'll see what I can come up with for route ideas. I tend to head up to the Skagit County area for drives.
  5. Being our elected Puget Sound area leader and all, any thoughts about getting a drive together? It will be raining sideways before we know it, sad to say.
  6. This would be better than perfect for a sleeper hot rod I'd love to do, but my garage is full, and the no offsite storage policy is strictly enforced at my house.
  7. Well, bummer, I was looking forward to the ti clone, but someone is going to end up with a great project at a great price.
  8. I think these steering boxes are like sunroofs, kind of polarizing. I do love the QR box in my car (380 wheel, 185/70-13s), but I don't drive around town much these days. It's one of my favorite things about driving my car. Sunroofs on the other hand, I'm a hater. But I'm probably older, and certainly more grumpy than Preyupy.
  9. BMW Alpina The Alpina name has been intimately associated with BMW for 40 years, and Alpina is probably the most widely and best respected of the German tuning companies. Granted the status of vehicle manufacturer by the German authorities years ago, Alpina continues to stun the automotive world with its superbly re-engineered BMW cars. This book traces the complete story of Alpina from its beginnings in the 1960s right through to 2005. Focusing on the cars, for which it represents both a catalogue and a unique information resource, it also looks at the development of the company and at the individuals behind it. Book Author James Taylor ISBN 1861267606 Number of Pages 192 Year of Publication 2006 Publisher Crowood Press Category BMW 02 and NK General Knowledge

  11. I have those GTS sport S seats in my car. They are very comfortable, and they fit me great, but be aware, they are quite narrow. I believe he will make them a little wider if that's what you need.
  12. Well, bummer. They probably had one or two left over from Bav Auto. W&N had them, but it appears they are out of them. The one I bought from them several years ago had a 1990 date stamp, so I suspect all the ones that are/were out there wer NOS.
  13. Hi - That looks like the "506" fuel pump (13 31 1 252 506). The parts book show it as specific to the 1600 engine, but I have run one on my 2002ti for several years. They have an 8 mm inlet and a 6 mm outlet. Believe it or not, they are available new from ECS for $100. https://www.ecstuning.com/b-genuine-bmw-parts/fuel-pump/13311252506/ Alternatively, there's a rebuild kit available - this one fits: https://www.bbt4vw.com/en/catalogue/5-engine/6-fuel-and-intake /fuel-pump-rebuild-kit/rebuild-kit-fuel-pump-t1-08-60-07-65/ There are probably other rebuild kits that would work as well. Possibly any kit for a 1500/1600 VW would work. Hopefully someone better versed in VW stuff will confirm that. Unfortunately, I started having fuel pressure issues with the 506 pump, probably because it sat for a year and half while I did some work on my car. I swapped in a diaphragm from another pump I had, and it improved a lot, but still not where it should be. For now I am running a spare pump for a bavaria I have, but may end rebuilding the 506. It looks more period correct to me. Good luck.
