As Paul noted nearly a year ago with his post on a 2002 Touring, they’re quite rare to see in the United States with very few imported and kept running. However, while perusing Ebay.de looking for cars for our “Party Like It’s 1989 Week”, I came across a very cool 2002 Touring that has been given the Turbo look and is ready for completion. With a host of upgrades and fresher bodywork and paint, this may be a worthwhile project for the right person to import even if it’s been legal to do so for nearly two decades! There isn’t much time to jump on this auction but it was simply too cool to pass up!

Personally, as cool as carb’d 2.0 Tii motor is, if I was going to build this as my project car I’d probably select a M42 DOHC motor for reliability and cost reasons. A friend of mine had a 2002 M42, and it was a hoot to drive! But in terms of body, I think the builder got this spot on; the turbo flares and valance look perfect sitting over the Alpina-look wheels. The silhouette of the Touring is if anything more pleasing than the shape of the sedan and really sets the car apart from the normal BMW crowd. The interior is less appealing and needs some work – as does the engine bay if you want it perfect. But if you’d look to keep it as a race car, I’m not so sure either of those items matter. To me, you could buy a semi-beaten M3 and spend forever and a mint’s worth of money trying to restore it, or you could buy this, import it, do some sorting and finishing and for under $25,000 have a fast and fun BMW that no one else has. Sure, there will be some work to get it here, but If you’re interested in a unique ride with plenty of character than will be sure to draw a crowd at any car event this is it.
