Welcome..
 
This place has some cool stuff. 15 " minilights:

And Bavarian autosport has some 15" Alpina clones.

Otherwise, Ive seen people use wheels from the E21 and E30. So you have a few choices of stock wheels as well.

Thanks for the Info
Ive seen the alpina clones but they are too expensive for clones.

Thanks Again:)

Check out this thread on a group buy of "alpina" type wheels. Contact CJ and see of he is doing more buys. http://www.bmw2002faq.com/component/...opic/t,301630/ They are beautiful wheels and Cris is a good resource.

Plan on joining us on some of our SoCal events, like this one: http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=297104

It depends. We know the paint is shot. The interior looks decent. How is the suspension? Ball joints, shocks, bushings? Drivetrain? Mileage? How original is it? I see the bumpers are gone and the wheels are aftermarket.

I see nice examples going for around 7000. Ive also seen pristine examples go for 20,000+. They arent cheap to make pristine. As a guess Id say between 2-4 thousand if it doesnt have any major issues.

It has NO Issues and the suspention is Great . Engine Transmission good . I have the bumpers, Just geting ready to take it to body shop and the wheels Im ganna get 15 inch alpinas and Interior is going to be original and restuffed. Dash has no cracks and headliner is good.

Im going to leave it all original no major modifications only wheels and tires and some tinted windows. and A good sounding exhaust.

Question: What exhaust sounds really good on a 2002?
Is Air conditioning in 2002's rare? And Polaris Color ,rare?

Air conditioning - not so rare
Exhuast: I like racing exhausts that are free flow. Im a bit obnoxious. :p
Color: I dont know if its rarer than the others in any way.

If you are going to keep and drive it Id recommend a 5 speed tranny. Also you can easily swap in the Recaro Sport seats from the E21 and E30. Also, Id be searching for an LSD rearend. Those cars are tons of fun with the few things Ive mentioned.
