  1. Hey FAQ'ers, I'm rebuilding a set of Weds 2 Piece Bavaria wheels and I'm trying to track down a supplier for replacement bolts. No luck with the online sellers I've contacted- none of the bolts have the part without the threads. Anyone know a supplier? Thanks,
  2. Interesting wheels. They are a "Four Spoke" design, and look to have been produced/offered by BMW at one point, probably in the Italian market (as per Mojojoy). Has anyone seen this set on another car? Or better yet, have history on it? Stamped on the faces are "6Jx13 H2", "FPS", "Typz", "Made In Italy" and "1009". I'm guessing the model is Typz? What can you guys tell me regarding these wheels? I want to put them on the 1600 but would like to know more about them before I commit to refinishing. Thanks!
  3. Hi All, Been researching if there are clearance issues with a staggered set of 13 inch Alpina rims (details on rims below). I have consulted a shop and the consensus seems to be that the issue is with the rear 6.5 rim. In order to not have the rear tire rub, the fenders will need to be unrolled (1971 02). Even after unrolling the fenders, it seems like my options will be limited to 175 or 170 tires. Does anyone have a setup with these wheels and if so what have you done to make it work? I appreciate the feedback Front: 6JX13 H2 ET12 KBA40228 Rear: 6.5JX13H2 ET6 KBA40149 Both are 4X100.
  4. Hi all, New here, finally scratched a 15 year itch and am in the process of buying a '74 2002 tii, currently deployed to afghanistan, and i am sourcing a few things. I am looking to go totally stock (what can i say, i'm a sucker for factory specs... too many years of my youth wasted modifying perfectly capable cars), and was looking at wheels like this: i wanted to see if these steel wheels will clear the calipers on a tii? I tried to search and dig through the forum as a lurker to the best of my abilities, but im handcuffed by slow internet while deployed. Any help would be greatly appreciated, and thanks for you guys' time! Hope to be a more active member of this forum once i get back home and take delivery of my new toy... Af
  5. These wheels released from Rota mid-year in 2013, I believe. They list et25, but as of yet this offset isn't in production. I spoke to the folks at 18Racing, and for now its custom order only. But if they order one set, they order several. I think we all know that a cost effective and handsome mesh wheel is needed for the 2002 market. You can find 15x8 et20 and 15x7 et35, but not with a 57.1 center bore. I can custom order a set and get the et25 and a CB at 57.1, but I think that the (unstanced) e30 and 2002 scene aren't really aware of them, and could tip the scales if word got out. 4x100 15x7 57.1 et25 are 650$ a set custom ordered. 5 sets or more would get the cost down to $600. I think Rota nailed the design. Although a true two piece would be sweet.. I know its a knock off, but Rota has been good to us in the past with the RB and the R20.. What do you guys think? Would you buy?
  6. Does any body have a few pics of a 185/55R15 Tire mounted to a 15x7 rim on their '02? Maybe a side view to show fitment? I know that the tire fits (it should have a very slight "stretched" look from what i can estimate) but if anybody is running this set up, a few pics wouldn't hurt. Cheers
  7. full disclosure: I have read the 'Stance' thread. I am interested in buying Rota RBs with the ("proper") offset of 25mm. However when I see some of the pics the wheels and tires on 02s they still seem to be flush to the fender lip. I am seeking a nice tucked in look like the one in the pic below. Also the 25mm offset looks like it is too wide for the fronts too. I know everyone indicates this is the correct fitment. If I want to achieve the look in the pic below (probably without as much drop but close) will 25mm get me there? Thanks for being patient on this. Also if anyone has some pics of a Anthrazite exterior with RBs that would be great. 25mm offset Rota RBs.bmp
  8. Hey all. I am looking to get my 73 back on the road and need tires. The wheels I bought back in the day look like baby M parallels, but I got them with some really squared sidewall Pirelli's in 195/60-14. When the Pirelli's wore out, I bought some old Road Huggers (house brand) and the shape has a more rounded shoulder with slight roundness of the sidewall. That tire rubs against the strut tower and the tire shop solution was to add a spacer. That makes the tire rub. Now that I am looking at new tires, I want to get rid of the spacers. Does anyone have a recommendation for a square shouldered tire with a really flat sidewall? Thanks. Jose
  9. I am up for new Tyres (sorry, Aussie spelling!) I currently have195/50/15 with standard height, but higher rate (stiffer) springs. I am considering purchasing some 195/55/15 tyres to better fill the guards and to gain a little more compliance in the ride on the less than smooth Sydney Roads. I have done several searches but not found much actual feedback. Has anyone run 195/55/15 tyres with a standard height set up without experiencing excessive rubbing? My left tyre currently scuff the inner guard on a full lock left turn, but I think I can live was this. I also have scuff marks on the rear of the front guards, but I am not sure if that is from a previous owner, when the car had lowered springs. I am concerned that the taller profile 195/55 might rub. I am pretty sure the rears will be ok as previously with the lowered springs the tyres sat inside the guards comfortably without rubbing so at standard height it should be ok. The rims have the standard backspace of 4.5 inch (24mm offset). Guards are standard, unrolled.
  10. Waiting for my tax return for full resto. I stripped the purple crud that was on them and hit them with a rattlecan for a general idea. I think I know which I prefer, just looking for opinions. or TK
  11. Hi Guys, Just wanted to share this info in case someone needs it... I searched around but only found incomplete answers to my questions. Something simple, but it was bothering me. brief intro: Bought an 02 with a Moto-Lita steering wheel, horn didn't work. Took it apart, noticed the contact from back of horn button to steering column "ring-contact" was not present. To make the constant contact with the steering column ring, I was originally going to use a bolt through a spring, surronded by a rubber sleeve (to insulate it from the hub). Did some searching, didn't know what the contact would be called. Turns out it was called a "horn brush." I tracked one down at blunttech.com. They had stock ones in-stock ~$15 (not listed on the site). From my searches I read that this works with Nardi wheels (but not confirmed). ...but before placing the order i contacted Moto-Lita by phone (had originally emailed them), turns out they have a solution, and will be sending me a pencil contact. £5.00 hope this helps some.

  12. I was on the 912 message board and someone showed the wheels and tires on their project. Barum tires. I never heard of them so a google search got me a result of the Barum web site where I see they have lots of 13 inch sizes. Also in my search was a result for Discount tire and the result for the 185/70/13 search. I cut and pasted this search result below from discount tire. It looks like they have lots of 13 inch tire sizes. Weather you can get them in the US is another thing. The line I like is "we may be able to order them for you".

  13. I'm looking for a new set of 195/50 r15's and have narrowed it down to the BF Goodrich G-Force sport Comp-2 or the Yokohama S-Drive. I know that S-Drive's have been popular with folks here and haven't heard much of anything about the BFG's. From tire rack reviews and some press articles it seems like the BFG's are great tires, and are supposedly superior to the Yokohamas. Anyone have any experience? http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=BFGoodrich&tireModel=g-Force+Sport+COMP-2&partnum=95VR5GFSPC2 http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Yokohama&tireModel=S.drive&partnum=95VR5S&vehicleSearch=false&fromCompare1=yes
  14. So I had a opportunity at lunch to go visit some friends. And I ended up on an all-wheel Dynotech dyno. The guys call this the 'heart breaker' because it comes in 15-20% under the other local shop's Mustang/Dynajet type machines. Hearing that, I was honestly only hoping to see high 90s at the wheels, MAYBE triple digits... Boy, was I surprised. I traced the torque curve over the AFR/HP page. With work, there's more to be had. But I like where its producing the power. Idle AFR is OK-ish, jet might be a tad big. But the DHLA-H use them for more than idle.. Accelerator pumps are adjustable and were hitting late at toe-in, causing that giant lean spike. When the accelerator pump hit it went rich, which is a jet change or adjustment. It recovered to a respectable AFR from 3-4k. After 4k it began to get rich again and kill output. I can tune that with emulsion tubes and main jetting. I have the rev limiter set to 6k, but he let off at about 5500. I should have pulled off the air cleaners on the last pull.
  15. I am the proud new owner of a 1973 BMW 2002. I have been eyeing these for a while as a new project car and finally found one at a reasonable price. It has a few rust spots, but mostly cosmetic from what I found. It runs great as I was able to drive it from Huntington Beach to San Diego without any issues! So far, I love the car and looking forward to doing a few mods. I want to start by lowering it and new wheels. The stance thread has been very inspirational, and I'm looking for a fairly aggressive drop. From what I've read, it sounds like the best combo for what I'm looking for are IE Stage 2 springs and Bilstein Sport struts. Is this a good place to start?
  16. The weather was finally nice enough to get some pictures of my mystery wheels. Can't find any reference to the Concord brand of wheel. They're 7x15, ET30 and marked on the back "Concord" and "Made in Belgium." They came with an E30 I recently bought, but seem to have the correct offset for 2002s also. Anyone know who sells 'em and/or anything about 'em? TIA mike
  17. Morning all, I was wondering if someone could help me out. I'm thinking about trying to build a steering wheel and had a couple dimensions that I can't seem to find here or on the rest of the interwebs. I plan on using a Momo hub and parts. 1) material thickness: How this is the material that the center of your wheel is made out of? I started out using 1/4" material and realize that is WAY too thick! I have some 10 Gauge which is close to 1/8th that I'm looking at using. 2) horn hole for Momo horns: What's the size of the horn hole on Momo wheels? I've seen some references to 50mm and 2". Although those are close, If I use a momo horn button, I don't want it falling out. What are people thoughts on the thickness of the grip? Thanks Allan
  18. Bethesda Ave Cross Walk You: Red, Square Tail, Minilite style wheels, 15'' I believe... Me: Blue Sweater, Khaki Pants I was In a hurry, in the crosswalk, yelled "Nice Car, I own one too!". You smiled, waved, and drove off. I really liked the way the light made your hood shine. All kidding aside I'd like to buy you a beer and talk 2002's sometimes. I didn't recognize the car -Dutchie3719 in MD
  19. A set of wheels came with my recently purchased E30 that I can't identify--and yes, I searched the Board as well as Google. They're 7jx15 alloys with a marked ET of 30 with a 4x100 lug pattern. The center caps say "CCD" and cast into a spoke on the back side is the word "Condord." They're marked "made in Belgium." Anyone know these? Pictures attached. TIA mike
  20. has anyone used avid.1 wheels? they look great and are pretty inexpensive. Im thinking of getting the av-03 wheels http://www.sparktecmotorsports.com/av1-av0315704h25mf.html .
  21. I bought the car like this, and I really like how it looks. The installation isn't perfect, but good enough for a car that is driven daily, plus I can fit modern wheels and tires. The front end is fiberglass with a pretend bumper. Anyone know who would have made this? My shop had worked on the car on and off for at least 15 years before I bought it from the family of the late owner, so it could be from the '90s or even the '80s. Thanks, Chris
  22. Speaking of my dead beat drop out too smart for his own good rocket science smart 1970 1600 owner neighbor in another post reminded me of a message he left on my phone last week.. This guy talks a lot.. and has been lurking around my garage for a few years now. See, Dennis was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. His surviving family all live in the affluent neighborhoods of Indian Hill and Mt. Adams here in Cincinnati. But Dennis, he has become quite the family anomaly, and so very opposite his over-achieving, white collar parents and siblings. He lives in a little town 20 miles out of the city, in a little 1200 sq ft, single story slab house swedged into the hillside in the back corner of town. He's become the quintessential mush mouthed, dirty/slouchy clothed, crock wearing, long and dirty finger nailed, Philip Seymour Hoffman look-alike weirdo that walks everywhere with his head down. Dennis is also professional student. Has been since he graduated high school in 1971. And since then, he won't hold a job for more than a summer, just until school starts back up. He fights tooth and nail not to pay on his college loans, is on welfare, and gets free food from the YWCA. Maybe mows a few lawns for his brother for some cash. While horribly misguided regarding politics ("Not everyone has ambition, and those who have it make more than enough money to pay for those of us who don't.." He's a total Marxist.), he's also a walking Google terminal. Particularly regarding BMW history.. He has, based on my current count, 5 Bachelor degrees, 2 Associates degrees, and three certificates. And none of them are his intended career path, just interests. His goal is to .."never really work". Currently, Dennis is trying to sue Nissan for a replacement for his 1987 truck. He claims that they owe him because the frame rotted through. ...But then, three brake lines are clamped shut because they rusted through. The rear shocks are literally removed because they were rusted through, the bumpers are both, yep, rusted through -and smashed. And the windshield is cracked. He literally brags about how well it runs and that other than the payments and religious oil changes, he hasn't ever had to put a penny into it. And he truly thinks that Nissan owes him something.. In my driveway exploits with the 2002 and e30, Dennis has always hung around and been the ultimate nay-sayer and hanger-on. To the point that I have had to ask him to shut up so I could think.. Always picking apart my house, my coffee shop, my job(s), my current upgrade to the car, my project ideas, my car in general. Values. 2002 vs. 1600 and the 1600 being a better car, etc. etc. etc. Back to that silver spoon. 1971, the year I was born, when Dennis graduated H.S. his dad gave him a budget for a new car. He bought a 1971 BMW 1600 off the lot in Cincinnati. He "passed on the Florida car" and drove off in the Sahara variety. Over the next several years the car went with Dennis on his many hippie kid, Dazed and Confused exploits from upstate NY to the Carolinas. He talks of crazy pressure-baking reefer'd out days in the car, hauling ass, with a car load of guys and girls, on dirt roads sliding turns and getting into trouble in the cities. blah blah blah. In 1977 or so, he decided that the motor needed rings, so he pulled it and parked the car in a garage 100 yards from where he bought it. In the middle 80's someone talked him out of the motor. He put the Borani steel wheels on a Ford Escort at some point, and they got traded in with the car years later. In the 80's, he bought a Kamei air dam from Korman to cover a dent in the nose panel. It was never installed. (I bought it, then sold it after a bit) Etc, etc, etc.. And today, the car still sits in that garage.... just a couple of dents, but otherwise a time capsule. The BMW dealership is now a parking lot for the uppity Kenwood Town Centre. So this champion leaves me a message last Saturday morning (mind you, he knows well and good that we have Cars and Coffee EVERY Saturday morning.) about some article he read regarding the value of barn finds and that guys want them worse than well maintained driver quality cars.. As if to childishly imply that his car is worth more than mine. He seems to think that his 1600 is turning out to be his retirement fund. While he hates money, hates ambition, loves the current administration and Obama care, and just raves about the free cheese from the YWCA, he stresses that he will" never never never" let his BMW go. And yet he is consumed with the potential value of his motor-less flogged-out 1971 1600. -the guy drives me batty. OH. Yeah.. its a survey. So what do you guys think about the value of a car like this? Happy Friday, and have a great weekend!
  23. Well I have looked the numbers up and all I get is random wheels, nothing even close to these. I've looked on the BBS site, still nothing. Looked around on R3Vlimited, nothing. Im at a loss. I've seen a lot of 2002's and E30's with wheels like these. But I have no clue what model they are... I was wanting to buy another set so any help your be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance, -Nesset
  24. They're on an E30 and I've never seen them before. Kinda ugly in my opinion but still curious. Dan
  25. Just returned from Florida back to the land of snow, salt and cold--but with a souvenir--a beautiful, all original '91 318is--110k miles, original unmarked (and shiny) Briliantrot paint and tan interior. It's obviously been taken care of very carefully since new. It also has some nice aftermarket enhancements--H&R springs, Bilstein sports, BMP chip, drilled rotors, 15" wheels etc. Even without the enhancements an E30 318is is a modernized 2002, but with these goodies it's even better. Found on Craigslist in Sarasota. Drove it home to Ohio without a hitch with a big grin on my face for the whole 1100 miles. I know...I already have a very nice one (also red/tan) but this was just too nice a car to pass up. Now I have to wait for the snow to go away to enjoy driving it--tires are summer only and I suspect it would be all over the road if I tried driving it in the snow/ice. Anyway, it's never had salt on it and I'd prefer not to start now... Here's a quick shot taken when I picked the car up... mike
