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.
