  1. G'day there! Karl Anderson on the 2002 Owners Australia Facebook group will definitely have something in his stash. He would be within driving distance (outskirts of Brissy i think) Let me know if you have any BBS wheels or an S14 block sitting about Tom
  2. When club rego was introduced in VIC there were two things that caused changes to the scheme and extra attention from the 5-0 - new 'clubs' offering cheap membership and dodgy club scrutineer sign off sprung up - people not filling in log books started getting fined for driving an 'unregistered' car, so club plates got extra attention Hope the same doesn't happen for you NSW fellas! Tom
  3. Hi all, I recall a number of years back there was a gent who was collating all the 2002 sales on eBay and sales websites etc into a spreadsheet (it was a hobby I think). Does anyone recall him or a username? I haven't been able to get on the board much recently but I'm trying to track down some history on a US car in Australia so hoping he might be able to help! Cheers all! Tom
  4. I've been out of the game for far too long! I'll have to dig up the old BaT listing.
  5. Been a while since I regularly checked the forums Kris, but great to see this is almost there! Do you still have your Schwarz car? (I may have missed a story here....) Tom
  6. Here here! I think you'll find there are a lot of lurkers who frequent 02Faq as its such a brilliant resource, but most tend to actually post over on the 2002 Owners Australia group on Facebook. Both are great resources!

  8. Love to see some updates Gaz... although i'm sure you're busy with Christmas festivities!
  9. It has been about 5 years since my last update. Living in London and life in general have stopped progress, but happily I have been able to keep the car and fully intend to keep it for years to come. Looks like there is even a new 'blogs' area of the forum too now, and i'm in the Archive!... Time to crack on with this build! 2002-6247 by James Burrell, on Flickr
  10. Thank you all for the help nutting this one through - really appreciate it! I was hoping they would be a 60's / 70's period seat but from my searching over the last 12 hours or so, i'm constantly drawn back to the similarities between these seats and the Mk 2 VW Golf GTi (see below pic) seats. Any inconsistencies could be put down to a retrim...
  11. Hi all, I stumbled across these seats and I'm just trying to figure out what they came from... He says he thinks they are an early Recaro and I'm half agreeing with him in the general seat style (he bought them for his 912). Turbo seat for reference: http://germancarsforsaleblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/S023.jpg Early Porsche seat style for reference: http://www.lakewell.com/en/porsche/911/65-73/sport-seat-restoration-kit-2-seats-porsche-911-65-73 Possible someones done a resto-mod retrim? Any way to verify what model these are? Thanks all for any leads!
  12. Toby - thanks for the heads up on the T5 and the 188 diff too. I've already got the 265 box en route but will certainly look into the diff and do some calcs! Nick - Thanks for the pic - Looks a bit bigger and the lip there too, presume to clear the shifter linkage? Do you recall which mounting bracket you used / have a pic of the underside by any chance? Best, Tom
  13. Answering my own question for anyone in the future: Speedo: http://www.bmw2002faq.com/topic/74578-sorta-ot-getrag-260-265-myths-and-facts/#entry440473
  14. They will look fantastic if you can keep the 1.5"-ish lip in the pic! Certainly great for anyone looking for an OEM+ look and not deviating too much from original.
