Looking for an entry ticket into the BMW 2002 club? We've found just the ticket you're looking for on eBay Motors. If you're familiar with this particular BMW, you know that the Tii is the most sought-after version of the 2002. When first produced, the Tii was fitted with a SOHC 4 cylinder engine fed by Kugelfisher mechanical fuel injection. It put out about 130 hp and had a top speed of around 118mph.
