As a lot of you know, I happen to be a BMW 2002 nut and have had more than my fair share of great examples. A few years ago a great client sent me on a mission to acquire a great 2002 Tii he could drive, enjoy and not worry about being left on the side of the road. He always wants exceptional cars and with the heat of North Carolina, the only 2 requests were a sunroof and air conditioning. Sunroof and Air in a Tii? All I thought was “well good luck with that!”.
A couple of months later while snooping around a friend’s shop in Boston I noticed this gem tucked in the corner. We dug it out, I took it for a drive and the rest as they say is history!
The Agave Green exterior is rare but the sunroof and A/C bring it to unicorn status. Painstakingly restored in 2005 and used sparingly since this Tii is an excellent example of why you buy them done and enjoy them now. The restoration receipts keep adding up and you quickly come to the realization you save a bunch of money and aggravation by getting one that’s finished! Our Tii has a few upgrades including the 5-speed transmission, BMW/Recaro sport seats as well as the Nardi steering wheel all to enhance the driving experience. This car has been used sparingly with the occasional trip around town, jaunts through the countryside, or a fall road trip in the mountains and has been freshly serviced.
