they are pretty rare, Ive heard about 20k a pop. But you can find a 2002tii for less. There is a nice one around my area for 4k. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

I had a 1972 Tii. They are great cars. Very cool. I had Momo everything. Right down tot he 13" MOMO wheels. Sometimes they like to eat up valves. Other than that, it was flawless, and it got a beating everyday.

I don't know about pricing, but here's a pic I took I thought I'd pass along.

That's gorgeous!

Screw the Mini-Cooper, BMW needs to rerelease the 2002!

i WISH they would. unfortunately if BMW came out with a "new" 2002, the 2002 wouldn't stand for "2.0 liter generation 2", but "2002 kilograms even when totally empty"

Oh, and I've got a '72 2002tii that I'm selling. White, Good shape, only a little rust (mostly a Calif. car). Don't have all the details and pics yet, but PM me if interested.

Here's a few pictures of one I took at a show last fall:


I could be wrong, but I don't think that those are pictures of a factory turbo, unless it has been repainted (which would be a shame). Factory turbos only came in white and polaris silver:
http://www.bmwworld.com/models...o.htm
Factory turbos, while being very rare, and interesting historically (they were unfortunatley released during the oil crisis in the 70's, and BWM got a lot of flack about them for being too aggresive and dangerous) they are not one of the more "streetable" '02's. When the turbo hit, it was like a bat out of hell, and as a result, they were sometimes difficult to control.
For big power on '02s, people have done several things: built up regular N/As or there have been a few who have dropped in M3 engines them. The 2002tii version has good power out of the box, but is not as upgradable as the standard 2002 Since the car only weighs about 2200 lbs. You don't need a lot of HP to get them scooting along
