2002 was designed in the 60's and had nothing to do with Hitler. It was the car that brought BMW to the US, and many of the design points, and maybe even a couple of the designers were handed down to the E30.

I was just backing up what you said. I could've pointed that out though.

I think they look cool with wide racing stripes and a lower, lower front valance. I would take one as a second car/project, but would never get rid of an e30 that is nice. Also, you know what you have in the car you already own.

2002 - if I could find a decent body example I would

buy it in a heartbeat...had 3 of them...killers....in fact, as I must go to new mexico in the next couple of weeks i intend to look for a decent example.....the 2002 was the precursor to the e30 and did and excellent job of leading the way.... without them there might very well not be e30s in NA.......

Sorry to revive this dead thread...but I was bored and found these pictures y'all might like:







Here is a link to the original article:

http://www.sportcompactcarweb.com/us.../bmw_2002.html

It was a contender in the ultimate street car challenge put on by sport compact car in 2007.

The E30 is what all actual driving enthusiasts are after. It's an unpretentious machine, quietly capable of spectacular feats of handling. It's light, simple design is rugged enough to run against $400k rally cars, but on the street it' communicative chassis delights even the most disinterested driver. It really is one of the world's ultimate driving machines
