This 1975 BMW 2002 was acquired by the seller five years ago and is finished in Taiga green over a black interior with houndstooth accents. A refurbishment was reportedly completed in 2018 and the car was previously listed on BaT in September 2018. The seller has since installed a modified 2.0-liter M10 inline-four, which is mated to a five-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. Other features include a Holley electronic fuel injection system, slimmer early-model bumpers, E21 Recaro seats, Bilstein shocks, Ireland Engineering springs and sway bars, Wilwood front disc brakes, 15″ Rota wheels, an Ireland Engineering exhaust system, and more as detailed below. This 2002 is now offered at no reserve with a clean South Carolina title in the seller’s name.
The bodywork is said to have been refinished in Taiga Metallic by Coupe King of Costa Mesa, California in 2018. Additional work included installation of pre-1974 US-style bumpers and replacement belt trim. The fender lips have been rolled, and the rear bumper over-riders have been removed.
15″ Rota R-20 alloy wheels are mounted with Kumho Ecsta 4X tires sized 195/55 all around. The brake system has been upgraded with Wilwood four-piston front calipers over two-piece floating rotors. Suspension modifications include Bilstein HD shocks with Ireland Engineering springs and sway bars.
The Recaro front seats and rear bench are trimmed in black vinyl with cloth houndstooth inserts. Additional features include Aardvark Racing door panels, a one-piece dashboard, an E30 shift knob, a black headliner and sun visors, sound deadening, and replacement salt-and-pepper carpeting from Etsy.
A leather-wrapped Momo steering wheel frames VDO instrumentation, and the center console houses the ECU, hazard light switch, and a USB charging port. An electronic speedometer replaces the factory unit and the odometer shows approximately 1k miles, with true mileage unknown.
The 2.0L M10 inline-four was reportedly rebuilt by German Autowerks of Atlanta, Georgia and features 90mm JE 10.75:1 compression pistons and a Holley Sniper 2300 electronic fuel injection system. The cylinder head was reportedly port-matched and fitted with larger stainless steel valves, titanium valve retainers, double valve springs, a 304 camshaft, and Ireland Engineering rocker locks. Additional modifications are said to include a balanced rotating assembly, H-beam connecting rods, ARP studs, a windage tray, and a Bluetooth-programmable 123ignition distributor. The intake manifold was reportedly port-matched to the EFI system and a ceramic-coated Ireland Engineering “shorty” header is paired with an Ireland Engineering stainless steel exhaust system. An oil change was recently performed.
Power is sent to the rear wheels through a Getrag five-speed manual transmission, a balanced driveshaft, and a 3.91:1 limited-slip differential. Additional underbody photos are included in the gallery below. Filed under: bmw 02, bmw 2002
