1976 BMW 2002

Let me start by saying that I’m reluctant to write this and even getting to the point of putting this beautiful square tail up for sale as been nothing short of heartbreaking. I’ve owned this car for the past 6 years. I got her in CO in 2009 and moved her to SC in 2013. the entire time I’ve owned her she’d lived in the comfort of a heated garage and has been driven sparingly. Weekend jaunts through the countryside, indows down, amming to rock’n roll turns the heads of everyone and really exemplifies the glory of driving.
I’ve done my best to improve this '02 to something respectable among 2002 fans.
Previously the interior was unrecognizable as a product of BMW and through lots of dollars spent on various interior components you can sit comfortably in the car and drive it from point A to B without the worry of a rouge spring intrusion.
The interior includes new Corbeau micro suede front seats. Black carpet kit. Reupholstered original back micro suede bench seat. New rear deck. Custom micro suede headliner with //M color stitching. New sound system (4 speakers, nd CD player with bluetooth). New teal seat belts. Everything is black, ut the door panels are still blue... Still on my list of things to do, ut they’re in great shape so they get pushed for more important things. The interior is very nice and clean, take really good care of it and refuse to let my kids in there. You won’t find a crushed goldfish anywhere.
While we’re on the interior, he car never had a working AC unit... It’s gone (useless weight maybe). The heater doesn’t work either. I think this can at least be fixed I’ve just never attempted it. The dash didn’t work at all and I’ve gotten all but the odometer to work. It’s showing 49K miles +/- but I feel like it might have more on it since ya know it’s 39 years old.
The exterior is pretty nice too, here’s very, ery little, ut some rust on the rocker panels and you can find a couple small scratches and dents here and there, ut other than that the paint looks good. I’ve replaced the front and rear windshield and gaskets because it use to leak like crazy, ut it’s all tight now. both roundels and some of the trim have been replaced and I took the bumper off for a “sporty look” I still have it so you can put it back on if you like that kind of safety. All lights function and blink or shine when they’re supposed to. The trunk is perfect no issues (see picture) I have nothing of note to write about regarding the trunk other than you can put a surprising amount of stuff in there, ho it will probably smell like gasoline afterwards.
I’ve refinished the original wheels they’re holding up pretty well. The Michelin tires on the car have held up well, nd they've worked for the 1000 miles I put on it yearly. I’ve recently replaced the front brakes and calipers and the rear drums, hoes, nd cylinders so it should stop just fine when you press the brake pedal.
Lets lift the hood and talk about what’s under there. I’ve spent a great deal of time replacing many parts here over the years. Overall it runs great keeps up with most old ladies on the Highway and fires up when told. It does get a little cranky in cold weather and requires some finesse with the choke. The battery is fairly new. I have recently replaced the starter. Installed a new distributer, nd cap, nd plugs and coils. New alternator too. About 3 years ago I replaced the carb with a new weber carburetor. There are a couple other things I’ve tried to fix or replace but overall it runs great, ounds good, nd is reasonably fuel efficient. Most people, MW fans and others, re impressed with it’s condition and overall sex appeal. I regularly maintain the car and unfortunately rarely drive it.
The tears are now streaming down my face and as I close this description, ’m open to answering any questions you have just let me know hopefully the pics do most of the talking. It’s been a really great car and fun project. I hope someone here sees the potential I did in it and continues improving her over the years. I’m by no means a pro at this and have done my best with the help of many professionals to bring this car to where it is now. I bought her originally because she’s nearly rust free and drove great.
I’ve saved all of my mechanics receipts since ownership, owever I can’t vouch for what’s happened before I bought the car. I’ve been led to believe that I’ve been the 3rd owner of the car for the most part it has been kept in Colorado until I moved it to South Carolina in 2013.
