This 1974 BMW 2002 Tii has been restored to give you the iconic
style and upgrades in the best subtle ways - including a Bluetooth
radio and an upgraded five-speed to take full advantage of the
fuel-injected motor. So the sharp-handling classic you love still
has that awesome vintage design, and now it delivers even more of
the dynamics that make this The Ultimate Driving Machine.
The Tii was the hot one in BMW's lineup, and so we always remember
it in a color like this bold Inka Orange. It looks particularly
vibrant on this one because it was given the kind of comprehensive
restoration that you can tell was done by a true enthusiast. And
getting a 2002 right is a bit more complicated than you might
think. The clean black grille is a symbol of the sportier
Ti-series, and it looks terrific against the orange paint. The
subtle crease in the hood looks crisp. The chrome bumpers hug the
body nicely. The body lines hold the tight level of German
craftsmanship, and the proof is in the way the shiny trim encircles
the waistline in an almost unbroken line. So, it takes a lot more
thought and care than the average car to get this minimalist style
right, which was the entire theme of the 2002 model. BMWs are all
about the drive, and so this one has had some road time put on it
since its restoration. The result is quite a stunning car that
looks terrific in your garage, and one that you also won't hesitate
to take out on the road. So it makes for an ideal classic.
The interior has a dark and clean look almost like they turned back
the clock to 1974. This even has the little things that make a
classic particularly inviting, like the working dome light and a
nice wood shifter. Plus, the upgrades you really want are nicely
integrated. For example, an R134a air conditioning system has been
added and you have a classic German-style Blaupunkt radio for a
display, but your real music comes from a Kenwood Bluetooth system
with amplified speakers. The contour of the bucket seat, the grip
of the classic steering wheel, and the crisp look of the VDO gauges
are all part of the way a true BMW engages the driver. We even love
how the speedometer is in kilometers for a full European
The engine bay shows off an ultra-tidy presentation while the clean
undercarriage shows the thoroughness off the restoration. One of
the reasons this is all worth showcasing is because the Tii had the
motor that really earned The Ultimate Driving Machine reputation.
The 2.0-liter was the hotter higher compression version and it got
fuel injection right from the factory. It's the one everyone
wanted, but few could afford the high luxury car price. And you get
to take better advantage of the desirable powerhouse with the
upgrade to a five-speed manual transmission. Because this was the
sportiest version, BMW even upgraded the fully independent
suspension and added a nice set of front disc brakes. And the way
this one sharply handles today is a telltale sign they paid
attention to the Tii's spirit during the restoration.
The sale comes complete with some useful spare components,
including the classic fog lights. This is a Tii that loves to
boldly get you down the road with a huge grin on your face. Call
