  1. I am happy to share that I have listed a car on BaT which will be sold for charity in these trying times. The car was restored by @kbmb02 and has recently undergone a 5 speed conversion by Mario Langsten at VSR in New Hampshire. It is a turnkey example which looks great and drives great. It is a very dry car - an original California blue plate car. Please check it out, comment, share with friends, etc. Let's get some momentum going for a good cause! https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1969-bmw-2002-10/
  2. This shop has produced a number of 02 builds over the years. Authenticity is not always their goal although windshield washer is a necessity for most. I agree - why go with fire orange when Inka achieves the same goal and is more accurate. They did a Laguna Seca Blue car at some point which is a completely unique color. They have produced a couple of interesting "M2" builds in recent years. One of them (see below) was relisted for sale not too long after the seller acquired it. It has been sitting for a while and the price is finally starting to come down. Perhaps the buyer did not know what they were getting into - or perhaps the quality of the car did not meet expectations. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1976-BMW-2002-M2/114008757470?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D225086%26meid%3Dc76559dfd3694299bb8ba094328e81c7%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D15%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D322351665605%26itm%3D114008757470%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057&_trksid=p2380057.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3Ac25b4969-46c7-11ea-bb33-74dbd180c416|parentrq%3A0cd7d4261700a9c0a80c50d9ffec5ee4|iid%3A1 https://germancarsforsaleblog.com/200tuesday-1976-2002-m2/ Buyers should verify the quality of the work and the underlying body before committing...
  3. I am interested in acquiring a modified 2002 - S14 would be nice but open to anything. I want a car with more power than stock. Ideally 160hp+. I am only interested in a turnkey car which has already been finished to a high quality. No projects please.
  4. Price is down to $44,500 which is getting closer to the right number. The trunk photos - I assume no way that's original paint? https://www.ebay.com/itm/1972-BMW-2002/254340909538?hash=item3b37e649e2:g:xkEAAOSwhiJdHkX2
  5. Eiremon did you wind up with the 68?I believe I have the original  seats to the car, I don’t know if you saw that. I posted a note on the for sale listing. Let me know if you are interested. 

  6. Thanks Andrew. So not all original paint. Also - the engine bay looks far too good to be original - the glossy finish would surely have faded? Still a nice looking example but perhaps not 100% as advertised.
  7. Thoughts on the ‘original paint’? Should the wheel wells be orange or black? I also see that the spare tire well is orange underneath - should it also be black?
  8. Any chance anyone here lives near Nogales, Arizona? I have confirmed the car with the prior owner who listed it here a few years ago. Looks like a nice mostly original example of a very desirable spec 02.
  9. Very odd - $2m car listed a) on eBay and b) at no reserve.
  10. For reference, here it was not too long ago. http://findclassicars.com/bmw/191946-1974-bmw-2002-tii-5-speed-rare-sunroof.html
  11. Yes - I saw that car, thanks. It does not have the complete S14 package but it's a nice build and a great owner / story. There are a handful of things I don't like about the car (non-factory color, interior needs refresh, electrical issues, etc.) which will most likely prevent me from bidding. I am now considering finding the cleanest base 2002 I can find and commissioning a build on it. The BaT car might even be a good starting point if the price is right.
