  1. Buying a used car is buying someone’s else’s problems whether big or small. A year and a half ago, my wife and I purchased a “needs nothing” restored ‘02 from a former co-worker. No bidding, no hassle, paid the asking price, which by the current market was a fair deal for both parties. But it has taken until now to get the car really “dialed in.” Things like the heater box, heater valve, temperature gauge ground, fog light wiring and switch, head light relays, center mounted break light, wiper washer switch ground, turn signal cancel tab, cold start circuit cable, driver door brake, general wire harness refurbishment all need fixing. Having these “problems” has allowed me to learn about the car and get to know the ‘02 community. It’s all part of the journey and something that makes ownership that much more rewarding. Don’t stress it. There’s plenty of good help out there, interesting things to learn and good people to meet.

  4. From my experience, judges prefer consistency of presentation and the story behind the car that supports it. If there is no preservation class, an original, unmolested car with patina may do just as well as a nut and bolt full restoration. But it’s hard for the judges to ignore the as-new or better than factory shine of a correct restoration. If your car already has new replacement parts and trim pieces polished up, you’re probably best to continue with that theme and replace your wheel centers. Otherwise they will look out of place and candidates for point deductions.
  5. Anyone down in SoCal headed up to Legends of the Autobahn, willing to pick up a retro roof rack in La Miarad from “Reese M.” and deliver to me in Monterey? Willing to negotiate a fee for the courier efforts.
  6. I had to do the same in both corners and used 3M Super Weather Strip (#03602) with good success. The hardest problem was scraping off all of the old adhesive on both the body and rubber seal surfaces to get clean smooth surfaces to work with. Other than following instructions, I did use masking tape to secure the seal in place until the cement was fully set. The corners haven’t lifted since.
  7. Part # 51 21 6 442 100 & 51 21 6 442 101 (1) Set (L&R) of exterior door handles including keys in new or near new condition. Locks do not match keys and will require a locksmith to match to either key set or to your car’s ignition/door key. $395 including shipping via USPS Priority anywhere in the US. If you’re looking for a new set of door handles, save on tax, shipping and current retail prices with these door handles.
