Summary:

A classic sports-car, which even with an automatic gearbox is a real pleasure to drive

Faults:

Not a thing up to now: the car needs a restoration and has rust in some places, but it is still a sound car for its year.

General Comments:

This car is very quick for an automatic. It really shows that in the seventies B.M.W. was the manufacturer of sports saloons to beat.

It still puts a smile on your face even now.

Once you have sorted everything out and replaced all that needs replacing, you've got a car to keep a lifetime!

I am not too keen on the seats (they are from bad quality fabric) and the interior could be better.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I own a 1974 model BMW 2002 since 1978 and has kept it all through all the years. It is one of the best car that I have ever driven and owned after owning more than 15 cars through out all the years that passed by. It is really meant to be driven by the owner in order for him to truly apprecaite the power and handling of it. Very fast and would really make you always drive in the fast lane.
