BMW’s 2002 was originally advertised as “the giant-killer” because it could best its larger rivals. That truth stands today, and the 2002 is our first choice for a classic sports car that can truly be driven every day. Besides being practical commuters, they’re well built, e…

Hey Tom, great to see informative articles on the iconic 2002! I still have mine, its a keeper. However, it points out a very minor correction to your article: my 2002 Tii is a euro (from Italy) and it is a 1971. It also has a VIN number that would indicate it was the 132nd one produced, though BMW says its records from that era are not accurate. But I do have a BMW historical origin document that identifies it as a 1971. In any case, I love to drive this car, it is light, simple and puts a smile on my face every time I drive it. Stop by Charleston sometime and take it for a drive! Thanks again, I  enjoy your magazine every month. Bob Payne (E30 M3, Tii, Z3, E93, F10GT).

My friend/mechanic down the street restores and owns these icons.. He currently owns three... Has at !east four or five outside his shop that are customers or his additional cars.. Probably three e30 tourings in the mix also, one of them is his.. He swears by his 02s as the best driving cars ever...
