  1. Hi Andy, you are right, my car has no rear defrost. The car was originally delivered to south Italia where the rear defrost was not often needed. The rear defrost was always an option which nearly everyone ordered in Germany because of the cold and wet wheather. I think the first time my ti saws snow was in January 2013 when my daily driver gave up with a broken alternator and an empty battery. With the Michelin XAS tires it was like riding the ti on a canon bullet. Aboslutly 0 traction! - but lots of fun! I will take a look here on the market for a 121 ti head. If I find one which is not cracked, I will inform you. cu, Carsten
  2. Hi Andrew, that explains much of the car. The engine modifications you did are well done. I think that this combination matches good with that cam. The gauges with black inlay are known from the Alpina modified cars and it is also possible that the racer wanted to imitate them with a good result. It looks similar. With the Solexes and the ignition I had lots of trouble during the last year. After the rebuild of the car and engine the refurbished PHHs were not to become realy calm. After the ignition distributer gave up and was refurbished, it works perfectly! The seats and the interior was original in marine blue and in horrible condition when i bought the car 6 years ago. BMW classic had the cotton and the ceiling stuff in new and the saddler did a good job. The right mirror on the passenger site is not original to this car, but it was orderable as an option. I mounted it, because of safety in modern traffic situations. Also the automatic seat belts. I have not the wooden shift knob and as well as I know this was not standard or an option. For the chrome wiper arms, I will take a look for them and I will inform you. Best Regards Carsten
  3. Hi Andrew, what a great car! Also the original "PlasticKlapp" ignition key is still working. Take good care of it, they are very rare and often get broken. Can you post the VIN? (PN) On the pictures I can see Weber Carbs instead of Solex and the Snorkel for the Single Carb version next to the radiator . (perhaps front mask changed due older repair, the version without snorkel is not available since 40 years.) Then I saw the gauges. They are not common with the black inlay but they are series 1. (Chrome Ring) The cylinder head has the number 121, not 121ti. These modifications and well made Details tell me that You have a very rare Alpina? switched 2002 to a 2002ti ! Congratulations! Some pics of mine: Best Regards Carsten

  5. Hello again, half a year has gone with trouble on the PHHs and the ignition distributor. Also with more than fun! The Bavaria Tour was great and in this half year and 9000km of fun, I also learned very much about carbs and ignition to become the ti calm! Now at the end of the season the baby works perfectly! https://youtu.be/cva21yCDv4c Great Idling, smooth going up from 40km/h until nearly 200 (with awesome sound) on the Autobahn in 4th gear! Quick Sound and fun! Wir haben viel erlebt im letzten halben Jahr! Best Regards Carsten
  6. Hello, now it is going to winter, for the ti it is time to sleep and I found a bit of time to develop the video from the Bavaria tour. Enjoy! Best Regards Carsten
  7. Hello again, the ti did the first 5000km nearly perfectly! There are still some problems with the PHHs on ideling (Thanks to the ash... which sold them to me as refurbished and not "Overhouled") and after the Bvaria Tour the ignition distributor gave up. Okay, that happens! The Bavaria Tour was fantastic! 326 cars of "new class", 02 and E3, E9 in Oberammegau. That was like in the 70s! In the evening is was fantastic. Everywhere in the town M10 or M30 sound Awesome! I let some pictures play
  8. The ti is on the road and did the first 400km perfect! He has still some problems with the new PHHs about idling, but that will be fixed soon when he goes to the carburettor specialist to get the PHHs calm... The car is wonderful to drive and I never expected that a brand new 02 BMW ist so hard and dry in the chassis and the springs. It makes lots of fun to throw him about about corners and the engine always says: Gimme more!!! Best Regards with a big grin in the face, Carsten
  9. Hello, my ti is now ready to run and tomorrow is the day of the days! First test drive! This night will be... sleepness... Best Regards Carsten
  10. After some time, the project goes on. The Garage where the car is rebuild had some trouble with modern cars, destroyed engines, winter tires in the last time, etc... But now it goes on!
  11. Hello, the project is now going along a bit slowly, because of missing parts. Okay, we´re not at Overhaulin, so it doesn´t matter if it takes a bit longer. Last week, the new stainless steel bumpers came and took first place. Well, the finish and quality is great but the fitment has to be adjusted. Always the same with rebuild parts .. We´re going on... :-) Best Regards Carsten
  12. The last pictures are current. I am now a little bit crazy to get this car back on the road! Best Regards Carsten
  13. And we go on. It is so incredible to see that this old rotten ti is now really coming back again. Best Regards Carsten
  14. A long little bit later at the paintshop... Best Regards Carsten
  15. Let´s go further: At the Body shop: (I make different Posts to get this in chronolocgical order with the pictures)
