Tuner Tuesday: 1975 BMW 2002

Akin to the modern day M3, the BMW 2002 has become a bit of a blank canvas for enthusiasts looking to try their hand at improving what already is an impressive package. BMW made their sport sedan bones with the 2002, helping the company emerge from financial crisis post World War II. The 2002 would also break new ground, becoming the first European turbocharged production car with the 2002 Turbo. With 170 horsepower and flared fenders, this car was all business and proved to be a popular template for tuners. This 2002 for sale in California is built in such a way for the new owner to enjoy it on the street or track, with turbo look flares, Momo seats and a worked over engine linked up to a 5-speed gearbox.

For me, this 2002 is a bit aggressive but I can appreciate the work that went into it. The 2002 can be an affordable classic, depending on the model and year. Typically, the earlier “roundies” are more sought after, with the 2002tii fetching the strongest values. Later models, like this one, tend to be a bit more affordable. Then you have the 2002 Turbo, of which examples are few and far between on these shores. Those models are the most highly prized of the 2002 clan. This one might hover around where a driver quality, late model 2002tii would pull, which would put it around the $20,000 to $25,000 mark.
