Inga

This is Inga, my first BMW. An original, unrestored 2002 that rarely drives nowadays, she lives in the street in front of my apartment, awaiting engine rebuild, followed by a Concours restoration. It's the car that changed my mind about BMWs being "overpriced, overweighted, and underpowered" Included is a current and a what-it-will-look-like-when-I-have-money picture.

Heh heh, yeah, I sorta forgot about the vitals there, didn't I? She's a Granada 1972 with a Weber 32/36, 4-speed, no sunroof, and original but not cold A/C. Pretty much original except for the differential that I shredded and replaced with another 3.64 that whines. That and some dork spraypainted the top silver (until recently I thought it was just bad sun fading since the silver is all cracked and crap)

Wow, thats kool. Kinda sucks that someone spray painted the top half. If they did a better job it would look pretty kool. Howd you shred the diff?

Thats really nice, I hope you get it fixed up, I really love the 2002s. My Goal is to get an e30 m3 and a nice 2002 and maybe a 1 series coupe if they ever bring them over here. All of that is of coarse once I get out of college and have some money.

When I put the radio on a blank AM station, it would make weird Atari-like video game noises that went up with the revs. My (former) friend says: "See what happens when you do a burnout!" Need I say more? The car went into limp mode, and we had to leave it at the mall overnight, during which some bastard hit the trunk with a pipe and threw eggs at it. Good thing I didn't stay with the car/own a shotgun or I'd be in jail and they'd be dead, after some strategically placed blasts of course. I still get fuming mad when I think about that. My stepdad threw away the original diff. Being sort of a purist, I had wanted to rebuild it. You just don't throw away BMW parts. That was a bad 4 months.

hey man, welcome to the forum. Glad to see more love for 02's out there. But hate to hear about the trunk incident.

My 02 is also very original as I am the second owner. Do you still drive her? I just got back from 120 mile drive with mine. I was very pleased since I had zero issues the whole way.

You should post up more pics of your car so we can see the interior and engine and such.

by the way.... I just noticed in your sig it says "Real BMW"

The previous owner got the idea for my license plate ("RealBMW") from the old saying "RealBMW's have round tail lights"

I was just embarrased about grinding 2nd and so I yelled it at the salesman looking my way. I only drive the 02 about once a week, as the rings are bad. A full restoration is on it's way.
