1970 BMW 2002 M2
Coupling the handling and low weight of the 2002 with the high revving S14 power plant from the legendary E30 M3, the "M2" is the enthusiast's dream car! I have been driving and sorting this car out for the last few months and feel it is a particularly nice example. It is an absolute blast to drive! The car is a 1970 base model 2002 that has been restored and heavily modified to compliment the upgraded power plant. The engine comes from a 1990 E30 M3 with 88k miles on it at the time of the install. It is coupled to a Euro spec, close-ratio 5 speed transmission (dogleg pattern) - a prefect match for the rev happy S14. It has been driven ~600 miles since completion. It handles like a go-kart and is ready for your favorite canyon, car show, track day/autox, or just driving to the coffee shop in style!

The odometer does not work, it stopped working at 49828 km. I have the new gears to fix it and will include them.
There are some very minor cracks in the dash, which could easily be filled
Hazard switch is worn and only works intermittently (turn signals work just fine)
Aftermarket steering wheel horn button is not wired up (I will include the contact plunger required to make it work)
There is some very minor oil seepage from a couple seals on the engine. It wasn't bad enough to cause me to want to fix it, but I wanted to point it out.
Stereo install is not complete and the head unit still needs to be wired up
It has limited sound deadening and the exhaust is loud. It would be easy to add more if you want more daily driver and less hot rod.
Every time you drive people will wave to you and want to talk about your car.
I have done my best to document all of its features and anything I feel still needs to be addressed, but feel free to contact me with questions. To the best of my knowledge and ability to inspect the car (I have spent quite a bit of time underneath it!) it is 100% rust free. I have all of the documentation for this car including that of the previous owner for a full history.
