  1. Redline has a friction modifier which adds some drag to the synchros on the shaft so they slow down faster and allow them to mesh/sync better. Also as stated GL5 can cause corrosion of some of the soft metals. GL5 75-90 for your diff, unless LSD. It made shifting in my Alfa, Porsche and Triumph much better. My 02 box is next on my list to investigate, but it may need a rebuild.

    Rear seat foam thickness

    Thanks, good idea on the glue gun. So, the bottom seat is flat across, no small hump over the driveshaft, correct. The seat back has a little protrusion from what I can see. I am not doing horse/angel hair so guess I need 1-1/2" foam. I may do 1" foam and some 1/4" carpet underlayment that has a rubber backing.
  5. As with most my rear seat horsehair is sitting on the floor of the car, under the seat. The vinyl is in good shape. I want to replace what was once horsehair with upholstery foam. Can someone tell me if they have done this and the thickness required. While you're at it I may need to do seat back too, so any info on that would be appreciated. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

    Car Accident Advice

    Too late now, but Hagerty has been fantastic with me. I've had them for about 10 years for my 911SC, TR6 and now my 02. As long as it's not a daily (you need another car) and its garaged. The nice thing is it's agreed value, that you set. Guaranteed pay out if totalled. They also have a interesting buy back option if the car is totalled. I think my 911 valued at $35k was about $300 a year in NE Mass. My one claim involved a few rock chips in the drivers line of site. They said get a quote. Agreed on a oem Porsche part & new seal. It was about $1600 installed quote. They did not require a receipt for the work and I found an OEM Siglia for about $400 less. So the final cost was closer to $1100. Called them on a Sunday and agent called me 9 Monday morning. My 02 at $15k is about $175/year, but its a multi car discount. Hope you make out with you " negotiations"

    BMWCCA 2002 Tip Book

    Hi Hal: Another 02 owner looking for a PDF. I'd be happy to pay for the PDF version as I can print and bind at work. Likewise I could run a copy through our high speed scanner and save it in perpetuity, and save some trees. Please let me know your thoughts, and thanks for undertaking this effort
