1972 Bmw 2002 Base Sedan 2-door 2.0l Colorado Orange W/ Sunroof Nice Driver on 2040-cars
Fallbrook, California, United States
|Condition: The car has rust repair and bodywork that will be needed. The rear body panel has some body damage and the 1/4 panel near the gas cap is very slightly pushed in. I have tried to photo the concerning areas so there are no surprises. The rust is primarily on the fenders, hood, trunk and spare tire well and rockers(I will include 2 brand new rockers to the high bidder). As you can see the front and rear shock towers are original and solid as is the floor. The spots in the engine bay are surface rust only. There is one area photo'd under the car which is rusted which I believe to be the pedal box. The passenger side window can roll up and down but you have to assist it while turning the crank. Door locks not working. Missing windshield wipers. Odometer is not working. No Radio. A crack in dash - slight tear in passenger front seat bottom.
Features: The car has a nice shifting 4 speed tranny - no grinding with shifts up or down. There is a little play in the shifter but it does not affect performance. The car is its original Colorado Orange color and has a sunroof which functions as intended. The lights and turn signals work - original engine idles smooth and runs strong(still has original Solex Carb). I would not hesitate to drive the car anywhere. Fresh oil, plugs, points, hoses, filter. Brakes are good to go. BBS Wheels w/ low mileage tires(all matching). No center caps. Nice overall original interior. In summary this is a solid vehicle, mechanically strong, that will need some love by a good bodyman. Once done you'll have a very collectible 2002 in a desirable year, desirable color w/ a sunroof to boot. I have set a very reasonable reserve - Good Luck and let me know if any questions.
History: Clear Title is in my name - CA registration is paid through March 2015. I had bought the vehicle with intentions of restoring but other circumstances have changed that.
Shipping: Buyer will be responsible for arranging shipping or pickup. I will assist however I can to help make it a smooth process.

We've run across some rather interesting news... or perhaps we should say interesting sounds. The folks from Bimmerpost have scrounged up a short video showing a preproduction BMW i8 running through a few gears in Sport mode at a quick pace, and if you were concerned that the somewhat eco-friendly nature of the upcoming German sports car would neuter its ability to stir the aural senses, fret not.

Judging by the lovely noise coming from the engine compartment of the i8 in the video, BMW's expertise in tuning high-strung, small-bore engines - remember, BMW Motorrad has quite the penchant for well-conceived motorcycle engines - has come through loud and clear. Now, it's worth mentioning that BMW's controversial Active Sound technology will be included with the i8, so the production car may not sound exactly like this version, which is running with the tech disabled. Owners won't have the ability to disable Active Sound on production i8s.
In related news, Bimmerpost reports that BMW will equip the i8 with an external Active Sound Design system to go along with its Pedestrian Protection System. That means those on the outside will likely hear piped engine recordings from the rear and a sort of "howl" from the front in order to warn pedestrians that the otherwise quiet (when running on electricity, that is) car is approaching. It will also feature technology that can stop the car before contacting a pedestrian.
Thanks to Austrian website Autofilou (via Jalopnik), we now have our first look at what appears to be the upcoming BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe - the four-door version of the new 4 Series coupe, which itself is based on the 3 Series sedan. Makes total sense, right?

Nevertheless, in our First Drive of the 4 Series coupe, we found it to be a much more engaging experience than the 3 Series on which its based. And if this new 4GC follows in those footsteps, it could prove to be a better 3 Series sedan than, well, the 3 Series sedan.
Expect the 4 Series Gran Coupe to come in 428i and 435i flavors, with a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four in the base car and a 3.0-liter turbo-six in the higher-end model. Of course, BMW will likely bring a range-topping M4 Gran Coupe to market not long thereafter.
We're not sure which spec we're most intrigued by for the new BMW M3 and M4: the twin-turbo six-cylinder with 430 horsepower and "far beyond" 369 pound-feet of torque, the 3,300-pound curb weight or the standard six-speed manual transmission with automatic throttle blipping on downshifts. That engine is fitted with both Valvetronic and Double-Vanos, twin-wire arc-spray coating in the cylinders instead of liners to save weight, a track-ready cooling system with additional radiators, a forged crankshaft, dry-sump lubrication and a magnesium oil sump. BMW says its "high revving concept" has a redline beyond 7,500 rpm.
In the M4, it will be pulling a coupe with "a weight of just under 1,500 kilograms," which is 3,300 pounds to you and me. That number is said to include no driver and 90 percent fuel, but we're still waiting on the exact number and specs. BMW says it's "around 80 kilograms lighter than a comparably equipped predecessor model," putting the power-to-weight ratio at something like 7.68 pounds per horsepower at the same time as it helps reduce fuel consumption by 25 percent. The use of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP) for the roof, drive shaft (with no center bearing), trunk and front strut brace, and forged aluminum for suspension components, have aided in the weight loss. This time around, the sedan - the M3 - will also get a CFRP roof.
The default option will be a six-speed manual.
