Depends on when you are coming down.. I am thinking about trying to meet up with one of the caravans (north or south) about an hour or two from SB and joining with them back to SB. Maybe not, but thinking about it. Need a place to stay?? let me know.

Jon:

Yes I did! I ran across them by accident recently and was quite suprised!!!! I am really looking forward to this year's Bimmerfest and I have gathered quite a few more folks this year with the classics. Some were a little upset last year from being shut out, but I have assured them that this year will be different. Sorry to hear there won't be a post-show drive this year-but I do understand your feelings about it. Nonetheless, i am sure you will have a great venue for us this year.

Cheers,
Ron

IsellBMW 03-17-2006 01:29 PM

In a word: Ninjas. :eeps:

In a story: The 1st US owner imported her from Holland. Then sold it to my friend who is selling it to me (next week). With the whole DOT: 25 years for exemption and EPA: 21 years for exemption. The 1st US owner got it over here some how.

Would you like to hear about my importing my US Spec Z4 from Korea to the US? That's a tale for the ages... Customs, damaged car, insurance claim, scum, a triumph over evil.. it's all there. :)

I am not a fan of US Customs. :thumbdwn: Glad someone else got this car through. :thumbup:

Oh, and my 2002 is running better now. I'll have both cars at the Fest.

Hmm that's a new one, a touring from Holland... great thing...:p My wife did the same thing with me, she imported me from holland too... I don't know how I got around the INS but I have a greencard now and I'm allowed to stay till 2014...:thumbup:
I know what you went through with your Z4, when I moved here from Holland in 2000, I wanted to bring my 1999 Porsche 911 GT3... Took all my papers etc to see if they could help me get the car here, but after all was said and done, it would have cost me around $25k plus the Ruff muffler system needed to be replaced...:rolleyes: So I have sold it in the Netherlands...:tsk: My friend that bought it back in 2001 from me has recently sold it...
Are you bringing the Touring to the fest...?

Went to pay for the 2000 Tii Touring tonight.

Unfortunately, the rear frame and the body were no longer connected. They had rusted apart. :shock: A total deal breaker. :(

:cry:

So, my 2002 is just going to get a few upgrades and some restoration.

- Brake slave and brake booster replacement
- Replace all seals/weather stripping
- 5-speed or 4-speed upgrade (not sure what one to do)
- bumpers re-chromed.

:thumbup: Everything's gonna be alright. :thumbs:

So Sorry, no 2000 Tii Touring at the show from me. Just my '69 2002. Sorry all. But the Touring is UNSAFE. :cry:

That sucks...:( Did you still buy it and if so are you going to restore the Touring later and make it beautiful again...:dunno:

I made an offer on a 1968 BMW 1600 in red with a sunroof, waiting for the guy to accept or tell me whatever...:D

NOPE. I still didn't buy it. :( :cry: :bawling:

When a car's body has rusted off the frame, that's a deal breaker in my book. Too much rust restoration for me to feel comfortable with it. Plus, mechanical issues are child's play compared to rust restoration. I'm not an expert on rust repair/restoration, but I could EASILY see the cost climbing up to $10k just in rust repairs alone. :cry:

HOWEVER, my normal 2002 WILL be getting some super sweet sweet upgrades and restoration work out of this: New Brake booster and slave, throttle linkage rebuild, manual choke replacement, all weather seals replaced, new rocker pannels, re chromed bumpers... Debating between 2002 Haus' 5 speed upgrade or a 4 speed rebuild/upgrade.

And of course, new rims! :thumbup: Sorry, but the Opel GT rims from the previous owner have to go.

At the Fest, I will definately have the Nardi on her. :thumbup: :thumbup: I was saving this for the Touring.... but.. C'est la vie.

MG67, good luck with that 1600. I'd like to talk with ya about it at the Fest. Those are some nice cars. I am currently window shopping for a full cabrio. (HAHA) Just have to hit a it big in the stock market for that though. :rofl:

I'll be bringing the "2002 Bible" and two "Hymnals".

Yep now all the resourches will be flowing into the 2002...:thumbup: That must be a beautiful car and I cannot wait till next week to check out all the nice cars...:D
I'm probably going to replace my 2003 325iT by the end of the year for a Porsche 996 Carrera 4S (2003 or 2004 model), then I'm trying to get my neighbor to say yes to my offer on the 1600 and I'm looking for a 1967 Chevy Camaro for my wife. She doesn't know but I'm looking for one so I can have it restored and in a year or two give it to her for her birthday...:thumbup:

I think the '68 would be the one to get but she likes the shape etc of the '67 better so that's the one I will be searching for...:D

Vroomer- What kind of wheels are you loking for?

Cris

Oh my '68 Camaro.

Vroomer 04-11-2006 09:59 PM

Pinoysche send an email to Mobile Tradition at: Andreas.Harz@partner.bmw.de with the VIN. Andreas will give you the build date, original color, and original dealer/importer. They will also be able to tell you what type of car it really is. Badges aren't everything.

VINs on 2002s are on the frame, the VIN plate, the crankcase, and the steering column. (European cars do not have the VIN on the steering column.)

Get a magnet to test for Bondo. Check the spare tire well for rust, too (don't be afraid to take the tire out).

Check http://www.BMW2002faq.com for more info on 02 cars.
