  1. Stolen from Colorado Springs, CO on Saturaday, Sept 22. 1965 BMW 1800tisa race car and enclosed trailer. Car vin 995013, trailer vin 40LAB2227RP025131 Trailer plate : OQI513 Please keep your eyes open. Car was restored and used for vintage racing. The trailer is a 23' white box trailer. On the front an RPMMotorsports logo. On the side the BMW Motorsport Historic logo. The car, of course is shown here. Please share this post wherever appropriate across the Southwest
  2. This all starts with my old E30. I had owned that car for a few years, and had decided to take the time to restore the whole car to its former glory. However with work and the real world getting in the way, I never had the time to finish the swap, the body work and so on. While I wanted to restore the car to what I had always pictured, it just wasn’t in the cards for now. Unfortunately I decided to part ways with the car, and find something a little more complete that I could enjoy while I made small changes. In comes my 1973 2002. I’ve had an itch for a 2002 for quite a long time now. A friend of mine has had a number of them and I’ve always loved the little cars. I started the hunt a while back, but had little to no luck finding something that was both in budget, and not a complete basket case. I didn’t think I’d be able to find a Roundie in my budget, but this diamond in the rough popped up. I actually found this car by accident, just browsing Instagram one night. I shot the owner a DM, and next thing I knew I was flying to Stockton, CA to buy this car and arrange shipping home. The previous owner was incredibly nice, and helped me out quite a bit in getting the car ready to send home. He had had the car for a long time, and had seen a lot of the details of the build through properly. Here’s a basic run down on the car. It’s already M20b25/G260 swapped (with a refreshed M20), sitting on CAtuned coilovers, with a Kooglewerks front air dam, and a number of other little changes. The previous owner 5 lug swapped the car by modifying the hubs, and it now has a 5x120 bolt pattern. The car isn’t without it’s problems, there’s some rust here and there (most notably in the pedal box), but is largely structurally sound. There isn’t any deep cancer in the areas these cars get hit the most. The plans are pretty simple. There are a lot of loose ends to tie up with the swap, so I’ll be tackling those first. The interior is a mix of so many colors that I want to redo it entirely. Exterior wise, I’m in the process of building another set of wheels for this car (as my RSs will not fit it), but otherwise can remain as is for the most part. So the changes will be subtle, but worth while. Long term, I'd love to get it body worked and repainted a fresh coat of Sahara Beige, but that's only if time permits.
  3. I lurk on here a lot and I am always sad when I see posts alerts about cars that have been stolen. It is always a constant reminder that some day I am going come upon an empty parking space that used to be my car, never see her ever again. On Monday, that day finally came... almost. I live in Los Angeles and I drive a 73tii. I had parked and locked my car on Wilshire around 1pm and been gone for about an hour. When I was walking back to my car, I approached it from behind and I saw that someone was moving around inside my car, my first thought was a homeless guy stealing change. I quickly ran up to my passenger side door, threw it open and screamed in my most menacing voice "What the fuck do you think your doing in my car?!" Inside I found a middle aged guy about 200lbs seated in the drivers seat with his legs on the passenger side, he looked up at me in surprise like someone with their hand caught in the cookie jar. Then I saw it in his hands, not a cookie but a blue, rusty dent puller. He was in the process of threading up my ignition to tear it out. Oh no you didn't...It was on! The thief made a move in my direction, Instantly I kicked the guy in the face/neck and then jumped into my car and proceeded to beat on this guy mercilessly. I am not a fighter so my blows didn't do much damage. Like the mighty chihuahua what I lack in power there is persistence. I was punching as fast as I could, meanwhile maneuvering all my body weight on top of him. Using my left arm on his neck to push him down into the driver seat pinning him there. Meanwhile this whole time in between cussing and obscenities at him, I am trying to yell to clueless pedestrians walking by to call the police. One finally did after I breathless explained the situation. As the thief started realizing I had him trapped, he started to fight again, harder. He got out of my hold for a second pushing me into the dash. We wrestled around and he started trying to hit me with the dent-puller. He landed a few glancing blows that did nothing but then he caught me on top of the head with the tip. Despite my adrenaline I felt it and knew it would probably draw blood. I shifted my body weight left pining his right arm against the passenger seat with my body. I already had his left hand held down behind his head with my right hand and my forearm on his neck. With all my weight pushing on him I pinned him again. With my face hovering over his I started to bleed on him drop by drop. I called over one of the pedestrians and they manged to pry the dent puller from his reluctant hand. It was over, he knew he was done he acted resigned to his fate. He asked me to ease off him a bit. No chance in hell I said to him chuckling. And there we sat for about ten to fifteen minutes. We talked a bit, I asked him what he planned on doing with the car if he hadn't met me? He said "take it on a joy ride". "Bullshit" I said to him, I told him I knew he would have chopped it. He asked my name and I him and I asked him his. To be honest I kind of liked the guy in a strange way, I wanted to hate him but I really didn't. I told him I'm sorry we had to meet this way he said he was too. The firetruck was the first to arrive. The blood had stopped flowing at this point but my face was streaked like a candle with blood. The firemen took a look at the situation and waited for the police. Eventually the cops showed up and cuffed him and arrested him. The paramedics helped clean me up. The police took my statement and pictures, and that was it. I drove myself to the hospital (the lock wasn't too messed up) and had my head checked out. The doctor put a little glue to keep the cut closed. After everything was over I surveyed the damage on my car. He got in by ripping the passenger vent window open breaking the glass and frame. my ignition is a little messed up. It looks like his first attempt to pull the lock had pulled out and he was in the process of trying a second time when I showed up. I have a gnarly hole in the center of my keyway. He also broke my turn signal indicator. Despite all that, I consider it a win, my wife is still mad at me, but I'll take her for a drive this weekend! So there is now one less car thief on the streets. Thought you all would like to hear the story of one that wasn't stolen. If anyone knows where I can get a good deal on any of these things I would be much obliged: Description:REPAIR KIT ONE-KEY LOCKING SYSTEM (I don't need the door handles I just want the ignition lock) Part number:32321113726 Description:Switch,direct.indicators/windscreen.wipers Part number:61311355286 Description:Vent window mechanism, right Part number:51326454321 Description:VENT WINDOW CLEAR RIGHT Part number: 51321804920 Description:Rubber seal Part number:51326454324

  5. I am selling my beloved 2002. There is a paper stack of service history about 1" thick that I'll be providing. Engine was bored out and 5-speed manual transmission added. Not sure about actual mileage now; odometer shows 13x,xxx but only 30k on the new tranny; best guess is somewhere around 150k. Car runs really well, idles well, starts every time. On highway, I get about 30 mpg. The master brake cylinder leaked once upon a time causing the driver-side frame rail to rust. I had a welder seal in that side, made the car really stiff. Pro job, very well done. I can provide pictures. In my ownership, the car hasn't seen rain or snow. I've stored it in a heated garage in the winter time. Car comes with car cover. Every time I park it, I put it on a battery tender. I had a couple brake lines replaced, new tires put on the stock 14" wheels and spare tire, and new brake calipers, among other things. Rear upholstery looks fantastic. Front dash plastic doesn't have any cracks. Carpet looks great too. I have a new wife and a new child, time to free up a space in the garage!

  6. -------------------------SOLD------------------------------ About the BMW 2002.. her name is Bianca & I bought the car about 3 years ago in Richmond, VA and drove it home from down there. All the work was done in the BMW garage, Delta V Motorsports (http://deltavmotorsports.com/) and the mechanic had known the original owners. Before I bought the car they gave it a tune up and replaced the gas tank and everything marked as 'NEW' below they had just put on. Since then Ive put 2,500 miles max on it. Since then I've done small maintenance to it, plugs/dist cap/etc and added some euro spec Recaros. I also have the OG front bumper and a early roundie front bumper as well. 5 digit mileage shows 87,638 miles Modification list: NEW Kazera KZ-U wheels and NEW BFG Sport tires. Early 5-series four-piston front brake calipers. Tii front spindles, control arms, and vented rotors. Bilstein Sport inserts and shocks. Eibach springs. ST swaybars. Braided brake lines. 320i 5-speed gearbox. 320i LSD. Ireland adapters for the CVs. 320i radiator and fan. Hybrid 318/320/2002 cooling system. Crane electronic ignition. NEW weber 38DGAS. (old carb included) NEW Canon intake manifold. (old intake incuded) NEW plugs, wires, cap, rotor, filters, etc... ​New Bosch battery Valve adjustment. NEW strut caps still in packaging Momo steering wheel. Hemp floormats. Dealer-installed AC. As far as condition I havnt drove it as much as she needs for sure. Ive had it under a car cover since winter started. There is a good amount of surface rust around all the exposed bolt holes. The strut towers are in great condition with no rust present at all. The spare wheel well has some surface rust but has been coated with anti-rust coating. There are 2 small holes where you can see daylight both much smaller than a dime. Also someone broke off the drivers side mirror and the rear view mirror culd be replaced. The front/rear window seals need to be replaced as well since they are dry rotted. Since the start of winter i put fuel stabilizer in it and have it under a car cover. The car runs but the last time it was driven it did bog a bit (i do this the 38 is a bit on the large size) & backfired a bit too. I rebuilt the carb not too long ago but think the bigger carb needs to be re-dialed in. The guy before had a sound system in that i took out but had done up the truck pretty cleanly because of it. I stumbled upon another project car and the lady says that the BMW has to go unfortunately... if there were space I would definitely keep it. My hope is that someone else finishes the car right instead of waiting for me to finally get back to it. I believe the price is more than fair with all the modifications done to the car but it needs to get sold and open up a parking space. If you want any other photos, videos, descriptions just let me know. Cheers, Eric
  7. Has anybody ever thought about building an AWD 02? Is it even possible/plausible? Just thinking around... would be really cool Thanks guys
  8. I recently received an email from Bravarian Autosport. Their 'winter' specials include a $20 savings on their ULTIMATE car cover, now $164.95. My question is simply, "Is it worth it?" With the number of cars we have, my 2002 spends quite a bit of time outside. I've had car covers before but the Las Vegas heat/sun destroys them in no time at all. I'd really like to get something to protect the car this winter while it's parked outside, but I don't want to spend that kind on money on something that isn't worth the investment. The LIFETIME warranty has me intrigued. Material? Construction? Fit? Wear? Actual level of protection? Waterproof? Will someone please share their experience, thoughts and/or opinions on this cover please. Thanks in advance, Jeffrey 8^)
  9. Hello, I'm a young '02 enthusiast..I've seen plenty '02 drawings out there, but have never really found anybody who would be able to put one together for me? I would absolutely love to own one (would post it on my room wall with a frame n' all..) If you know someone or draw them yourselves, it would mean the world if you could put together a piece for me! I'm willing to pay something, but honestly would appreciate anything you can do for free! Also, I was wondering where I can get some nice '02 shirts? Some links would be greatly appreciated! Much thanks!
  10. If I wasn't moving to Alaska next week, I'd totally buy this and clearcoat it. (after a bit of structural reinforcement) https://miami.craigslist.org/brw/cto/d/bmw/6240249891.html
  11. This car is for sale local to me in Victoria BC. Was supposedly driven from California to Victoria where it was bought by the current owner. VIN 428113. Never been my favourite colour, but it's kind of growing on me. Any history greatly appreciated. TIA Tony
