      CowboyCoffee: 1975 2002 with a Weber 32/36 and some minor suspension work. No rust. Broken odo but probably nearing 200k miles. Just was repainted on the outside with original BMW Malaga. Very nice original interior with a few discolorations on the liners but generally in good shape. And has an MP3 player jack on the stereo (which needs some serious mounting love).

      It's got some rough edges. I think the carb needs to be tuned or the electrical system may be giving trouble. It's dieseling a bit when I turn it off sometimes, plus it detonates a little during low idling. I don't know anything about carbs, though, so it's time to learn!

      i did the 32/36 conversion on mine. SO much better. This book helped a lot:

      also, i did the electronic ignition upgrade. That was huge. So easy too.

      I *really* don't like beemers. BUT.... this is sweet.

      I've always wanted one of those. Very nice.

      Are those 8v VW GTi wheels?

      That is a really interesting method of deleting the "diving board" bumpers that the US gov't saddled on your '02.

      Unless you garage it (or live in the suburbs and never have to parallel park), I STRONGLY recommend getting some bumpers. As much as it may look uglier, its still better than a beaten body. Take it from experience. Nice VW snowflakes.
