'After many years only in hard copy, we are now releasing the BMW Mobile
Tradition Original Parts Catalog through the 2002 Registry and the Tii
Register. This document is all of the original parts microfiche converted
to paper document, which BMW published originally back in the 80s. With
Mobile Tradition's permission, we have been authorized as the primary
distribution of this document. Over 1700 pages, and 78 meg of PDF file.
Why would you need this document? This contains photographic and textual
specifications on every part of the car as it was stored originally. For
example, it contains more information on bolt sizes and length,
dimensions than BMW has produced in later electronic versions. It shows
diagrams of many many parts no longer available. It has "all the pages"
of the fiche, instead of only what shows in the ETK or on RealOEM.com for
example. No prices though!
If you are performing a restoration or doing any repairs yourself, this
in conjunction with the factory shop manuals will be invaluable for not
only ordering, but exact reassembly of the parts themselves. Learn this
