Newbie needing input

Hello folks, I just purchased a 76 2002, it has the automatic, I think I read somewhere that the early autos were failure prone. Did the later models have such problems? Anything I need to look for in the car in general as far as mechanical? Glad to join the crew!

yeah....there's not a lot of activity in this area (relative to some of the other areas). Not yet anyway....but if that's ever gonna change, it might as well start now.

Welcome aboard. The bmw 2002 is a great car. I've found lots of info about them and saved a bunch of links...you may have found them too.

I'll search through my saved sites and post another reply with some links to some great info.

Is this your first '02?

The 320i uses the same engine and the autos from those cars seem pretty reliable and should fit ok.

The key is frequent fluid and filter changes. THis goes for botht the engine and the transmission. You'll also want to make sure the valves are adjusted at the reccommended intervals. They are great little engines. I got over 400,000 out of mine before the car got wrecked.

Thanks guys! Could someone tell me what the differences between the 2002 and tii are. It seems like a lot of the parts are not interchangeable as far as suspension and such.

Difference in 2002 & Tii are not that far apart chassis are the same depending on yr, 2002 normally aspirated mtr Tii is mechanically fuel injected via Kugelfisher pump. Suspension on early 02 have smaller sway bars some of the early models didnt come with rear swaybars, brakes on 02 are single piston were on the Tii have two pistons and larger diameter front & rear swaybar just about everything on the Tii is beefier too much to list between the two models but they are both excellent vehicles to fix up and drive the heck out of.

Here is a picture of my 69 02 Ti

2002's are great cars! Still gets looks from the women and makes for good handling canyon carvers!

Do any of the beefier suspension parts bolt up to the 2002 off of the tii? The car I bought is pretty clean except I need a front passenfer fender, strut housing and a windshield. If anyone has some extra stuff laying around send it my way.

Yes... They do bolt right up.. Yes you can use Tii suspension parts on your 76... But you can also beef up what you currently have in your vehicle? buy new control arms install poly urethane bushings in them and larger swaybars if you want, struts Bilsteins sports all around with Stiffer springs Eibach or HRC just a few to name. Everything is possible with this car of yours its just how you want to set it up yourself?
