Unfortunately not. That was 13 years ago so no digital pics. I had an album I brought here with all my cars and racing pics. One morning I drove off rushing the wife to work with the leather covered album on top of my car, never to be found again.

When I asked around, some ppl said they saw it on the pavement but someone probably stole it just for the expensive album. I felt like half of my life was gone.

In the digital age it also sucks. I installed two new hard drives in my PC 9 months ago. The 200 gig was a backup with nearly 100 gigs of vids and pics. My PC suffered a power glitch from the power supply, both drives wnet down.

I sent them in for data recovery and awaiting a reply. I may have to pay 1.5K to 3K to recover the data.

It was rumored that BMW was going to produce the BMW 2002 in the year 2002.
I wish they did. The return of the VW Beatle and the Austin Mini was quite refreshing.

48 Webers...very nice. I feel your pain leaving the car behind, must have been a tough decision. It's killing me to go through all this but what needs to be done, needs to be done. If you know what I mean.

I plan to completely disassemble the engine, maybe go with 1800ti pistons which have the same 84mm bore as my stock ones but have 9.5:1 compression. 130 Euros is the main deterent. Hone the bore, renew timing gears, oil pump and bottom end, and paint the crank case. Cylinder head is almost restored with 292 cam.

Should be pretty dam nice when it's done.

Good luck with the resto- looks like you have a lot to work with anyways! I hope to have my '72 2002 on the roto-hoist at work and stripped within the next couple of weeks... and I'm expecting to find some pretty large amounts of bondo.

Now... are those E30 seats in your car?

Thanks

Man, took the tranny out tonigh in two hours which is not too bad. Pays to have done it before and way easier with the motor out.

Seats are out of a 320.

Not really

The fronts bolt right in but the rear bench is too wide for an '02. I pulled the seat cover off and put it on the original seat frame.
