I am a newbie to the site but have owned BMWs since 1976. I still have my first car, a 76-2002, and a 99-323i 4-dr. The 2002 has over 300,000 with two engines, three transmissions and three paint jobs. I have performed most of the work except for the paint. The 2002 was originally bought used in 1978 with 22K on it and has been licensed in CO, KS, OH, CA and NJ. I look forward to learning much from this site.
