Hi Rob, I recently (last weekend) purchased a 2002 here in Florida. I have spent the last 1.5 years looking for the right one, and definitely identified with your article "The Two That Got Away" as I used a similar process to keep my self out of trouble, especially with my wife, haha. Anyways, I was finally able to spend a few hours with the car yesterday which at the present moment is not running, but is very close. Pretty much the entire underside and engine compartment have been rebuilt or replaced with OEM or Ireland Engineering components and reconnected with the exception of the transmission lines, some wiring (not looking forward to that) and some odds and ends. The task I am attacking at the moment is the auto shift lever. I am missing a couple of key components at this time associated with the handle area, specifically parts 6 and 7 as well as possibly other components of parts 1-4. I attached the diagram which I pulled up on BMW's classic shop website. I was wondering if you can offer advice on where to get or if its really just easier to procure another shift lever handle that will suffice for now. I have a 5 speed tranny I was able to procure with the deal as well, which I plan on putting in at some point, but want to get the car up and running with the auto first, which was also completely rebuilt. Thanks for the help!
