Tuned BMW 2002 hits eBay

We have seen many tuning project involving Bimmers both old and new, and while most made an almost immediate impression on me, with this one I’m on the fence.

Fact is, I don’t know if I should like or hate it, as there are plenty good things thrown in with the bad.

It is nice that the owner decided to put in a 5.0 liter V8 engine taken from a Mustang, and the overall condition of the vehicle seems good. It even has limited slip differential and hydraulic steering, and the BMW 2002’s engine has a nice round sound to it, so you shouldn’t expect it to give out in a middle of an intersection.

On the other hand, I tend to think that the owner is lacking slightly in styling taste… to put it mildly. The combination of a green bottom half and wood-panel brown on the top is just repelling, and the interior has been stripped of all that could provide pleasure. While the Recaro seats are indeed a nice touch, their color in combination with the orange interior would make me always speed just to avoid curious looks.

The exhausts, while providing a decent soundtrack, are way too “bling” for its own good, but if you like a peculiar BMW 2002, this might just be yours.
