    How are things coming along? Looking forward to another Aussie 02 on the road!
  2. G'day George - i definitely recognise your username from way back. There remains a good Melbourne base of owners - we get roughly between 5 and 18 cars along to drives, so hope to catch you at one! I'm not sure if you're on the Australian 2002 owners Facebook group, but if not - there is a lot of local knowledge on there - https://www.facebook.com/groups/bmw2002ownersaustralia If you aren't a Facebook user though (or just want to be on the list!), shoot me a msg with your email and I'll add you to the mailing list / Victorian 02 register - it helps us get together for informal 02 drives. Also, this post from Brent at Dee Bee engines is a great snapshot of some local suppliers - very handy - http://deebeeengines.com.au/bmw-2002-2002-tii-1602-workshop-guide/ Look forward to seeing updates! Tom
  3. That is a right bugger Dion - hope you can get it sorted and come to an agreement with the mechanic! Those springs aren't cheap!
  4. Sadly this sub-group doesn't get much love! Victoria spent a large chunk of this year in the most severe lockdowns in the world. Happily, last weekend after restrictions had relaxed, a bunch of us could finally get out and enjoy a drive down and around the Mornington Peninsula - a couple of shots from the day attached.
  5. @David Nixon, Peninsula BM had a wheel in stock when I enquired within the last year. I personally found it a little expensive for my taste but they may separate or reduce the price..
  6. Great stuff! Do you mind if i ask how much the skin ran you after GST, duties, shipping etc?
  7. I'm interested @tomorrowcalling (based in Melbourne, Aus) There are also a couple on the 2002 Owners Australia Facebook group interested.
  8. In case anyone hits the search function in the future - you can also get repro original design clips through Jaymic (i'm yet to try them) https://www.jaymic.com/sill-moulding-clip-original-black-type.html
  9. Today was a happy-sad day as this one went to its new owner. My father and I pulled it out of a workshop where it hadn't moved for a couple of years and was a non-runner. We gave it a solid recommissioning and needless to say, got really attached to it! It is by far the best 02 body i've seen/had as it had been preserved so well over time, and i'm thrilled the new owner is local-ish and i'll continue to see it at some of the Victorian events.

  10. They are easy to tell apart because the design is totally different. These are the original design and work well (i managed to find some old clips albeit not enough, and you can hear a nice 'click' when they go into place in the sill, or into the sill trim) https://shopware.bmw-oldtimerteile.de/fahrzeugtypen/e10-1502-2002-tii-turbo-touring-cabrio/51-fahrzeugausstattung/stossleisten/77/clip-schwellerleiste/02-serie-original These are the 'new' design which i didn't have much luck with. Note they are slightly different to the knee line trim version. https://www.wallothnesch.com/en/plastic-clip-for-sill-trim.html
  11. Good to hear! Thanks Andrew - what was your parts source for them?
  12. Hi All, I've gone through the archives and deduced that the original design 02 plastic clips for the lower sill (SS) trim are now NLA. The design has been updated to an e21 design and as a result, some have noticed issues when mounting their trim (either clips not mounting in the body/sill and falling out or not clipping into the trim and the trim popping off, or both). I've been wrangling with the W&N kit to make it work (and will keep trying), however in my search i noticed that there was an aftermarket supplier of the original design clips: https://www.autobodysupply.net/product-p/w-e2303.htm Edit: Also just found this mob in Germany too: https://shopware.bmw-oldtimerteile.de/fahrzeugtypen/e10-1502-2002-tii-turbo-touring-cabrio/51-fahrzeugausstattung/stossleisten/77/clip-schwellerleiste/02-serie-original Has anyone used these before (and can provide a comparison as far as usability between these and the 'new' OE design)? Also keen to make sure the company are reputable. Many thanks, Tom
  13. Look forward to seeing some shots and hearing about your first drive, Steve!

  15. Hi All, I'm looking for any advice on brands and quality for replacement water pumps. What are people using? There doesn't appear to be a hard and fast rule of who/what to avoid... Options I can see online: GRAF - https://www.blunttech.com/shop/replacement-parts/cooling-system/W0133-1621429-GRA GEBA - https://www.blunttech.com/shop/replacement-parts/cooling-system/W0133-1621429-GEB HEPU - https://www.pelicanparts.com/catalog/SuperCat/5465/BMW_5465_WATPMP_pg1.htm#item1 GATES - https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/bmw,1973,2002,2.0l+l4,1010754,cooling+system,water+pump,2208 GMB - https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/bmw,1973,2002,2.0l+l4,1010754,cooling+system,water+pump,2208 AIRTEX - https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/bmw,1973,2002,2.0l+l4,1010754,cooling+system,water+pump,2208 OEM There are also references to a Bosch and AC Delco pump but I haven't located stock. Any help greatly appreciated! Tom
