Chassis number 2762755 (matching engine). Fjord Blue over black vinyl. 1990cc L4/130hp, 5-speed, Panasport wheels, Yokohama tires, sunroof, Momo Monte Carlo steering wheel, modern Kenwood head unit.

Evaluation: Represented as matching numbers. Mostly good paint but there are track scratches on the sunroof and another long scratch on the left side of the roof. Light scratches on the window frames but clean bumpers. Good interior, mostly restored but with original switchgear. Restored and tidy underneath. Not 100% factory correct, but a well-done 2002 with the desirable round taillights and injected tii engine.

Bottom line: The 2002 cemented BMW’s reputation for building quick little cars that were also both solid, practical, and handsome in that understated German car way. They were also reasonably priced at the time and up until fairly recently a regular carbureted 2002 was a great “first classic” for someone who wanted to get into the classic car hobby for cheap and learn basic mechanical stuff along the way. They’re pricier these days, though, and any 2002 in “entry-level” territory is going to have some needs. And for the fuel injected cars, forget about it. Good tii’s have about doubled in value just over the last four or five years, and this is a typical price for one in 2022.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
