Hello Everyone! I wanted to say hello and say that I am a new owner for a 1974 2002 which I won last week on Bring a Trailer. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1975-bmw-2002-54/ A commenter on that site suggested I join the FAQ, so here I am!
I would greatly appreciate any advice or observations, if you feel so inclined, about the car...although don’t make me feel too bad about the extra BaT % premium I paid for it!
I am based in the Bay Area, CA and will be picking the car up hopefully by the end of June (what with one thing and another), from where it is presently located in Portland, OR. We plan on taking the scenic roads back home and getting to know the new car on the way down. Cannot wait!
In the meantime, work will be performed by the selling dealer up in Portland to replace and repair the rust in the foot pans; I also plan on ordering some Vredestein 165 new tyres. Then I am sure I will begin investigating the Euro bumper swap! The addiction begins...
If anyone has any advice for a Bay Area garage/mechanic, that would also be appreciated. I am in Oakland, and Berkeley Motor Works in Albany seem like
a long-standing and solid option.
Thank you all in advance or guidance...look forward to meeting you one day at a cars & coffee!
