Runs perfect, feels and looks like new, all original, nothing customized.?an absolutely exceptional example of an original southern California car.?This is a great looking and driving1974 BMW model 2002.
The great visibility from the "glass bubble" cockpit really adds to the fun, and you can see everything really well. Growing up my children all drove the "pumpkin". ?The BMW 2002 was the high performance limited edition model (1972-74) of the 2002 model line which changed the automobile world forever with the introduction of an everyday compact 4 seater car with a measure of sportiness and sophistication, that along with BMW's legendary reputation for engineering and high quality construction, caught the attention of sport car enthusiasts the world over.?This car is an absolute joy to drive. Being very light weight, it is extremely peppy it is a blast to be behind the wheel of. If you've owned a 2002 you already know why they make such great drivers. They were used as track cars and still are in SCCA racing.
The dash is great, with an almost unheard of condition of no cracks, and no hardening. Headliner is excellent, with no tears.?
This classic BMW has been in my family since it was purchased new. I have the original sales contract, maintenance logs, sales brochure and glove box manuals in their original plastic sleeve. Also comes with the small BMW tool kit that came with the vehicle.
It has been garaged and is in great original shape. The engine and automatic transmission have been rebuilt and have few miles on them since the rebuild. The car has air conditioning but it needs to be recharged.
The car comes with lots of extra parts. The engine currently has a weber carburetor. Included in the sale is an additional weber carb and the original Solex carburetor. I have an additional Solex carburetor that can be used as parts to rebuild the original. Also comes with the original air filter. Lots of other parts including new chrome trim pieces that were never fitted on the car. I also have the original Blaupunkt stereo that came with the car when new.
The car was repainted a few years ago in its original BMW orange color. The seats have been reupholstered. Because the car has been garaged the dash has no cracks or dings. There are some negatives to the car but it runs great and is in original condition.
Does have minor leak to front transmission seal. Has small dent to left front fender. Has air conditioning but the unit needs to be recharged.

We know a number of BMW owners who reside in the Munich brand's core demographic - upper-five- and six-figure professionals who like to keep their automotive brand credentials as highly respected among their peers as their alma maters or the letters after their names. Before heading to Las Vegas to drive the new M235i, we asked four of those owners, "What did you think of the E30 3 Series?" Although phrased differently, every one of them had the same answer: "What's that?"

You can counter that we just happened to query a tiny and ignorant sample size, and it's possible that you're right. Nevertheless, in every case,we were speaking to BMW's core demographic, the increasing legion of buyers who have fostered another year of record growth and are responsible for BMW retaining its global luxury title for nine straight years. Question that, and we'll refer you to BMW's marketing department, its several hundred PowerPoint slides and several thousand pages of research that prove the point.
That second-generation E30 3 Series built a name, a brand and an entire segment by defining BMW-ness as superlative driving dynamics meets luxury - shortened to the phrase, "The Ultimate Driving Machine." Thirty years later, just being a part of BMW-ness and luxury is enough for the majority of buyers. The superlative handling, that's optional, and 150 hairy guys meet every Tuesday to keep the old religion going, light torches, sing dirges to the siren long gone and bang on their keyboards about the apostasies of modern buyers.
According to Car and Driver, citing a report in BMW Blog, BMW will be offering performance upgrades - likely called the Competition package - for its M5 and M6 models (including the convertible and Gran Coupe versions of the M6). Both cars will continue to be offered with the normal 560-horsepower, 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engines, but this new performance pack is expected to add an additional 15 hp to the mix.

No need to worry, however - the upgrades won't simply be limited to a small boost in power. These M5 and M6 models will reportedly get new wheels, black exhaust tips, a more direct steering ratio and reworked suspension geometry which will provide better overall handling. Top speed is said to remain governed at 190 miles per hour, but that these extra improvements will shave one-tenth of a second off the cars' 0-60 times.
No pricing information has been revealed as of this writing, though we imagine it'll likely come at a substantial cost over the current starting prices of the M5 and M6 ($90,200 and $108,350, respectively).
The U.S. News Best Cars for the Money Awards picks winners by looking at the average transaction price, five-year total cost of ownership, the regard a car has from the automotive press, reliability figures from J.D. Power and Associates and safety data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The result, according to the magazine, is "the best combination of critical acclaim and long-term value."
Ford nabbed six of the 21 categories that received awards this year, the Focus, Fusion, Fusion Hybrid, Taurus, Escape and Edge getting trophies. Toyota and its Lexus and Scion sub-brands took another five, the Tacoma and Tundra owning the two categories given to pickup trucks. The other ten awards were split between Honda with three, Buick with two, and one each for Subaru, BMW, Hyundai, Chevrolet and Mazda.
