I can't take the glory for the condition of my BMW; it was restored 18 years ago but has only been used in the dry since then so that has helped I'm sure. I have reconditioned all the brakes and the servos and now it pulls up nicely. Also had the head converted to unleaded and put on a new carb and so now it idles properly as well. I recall from the 1602 I had in my mispent youth that 02's sit quite high and I'm not sure if lowering will suit it. Jaymic do a set of lowered and uprated springs - anyone got any experience of these or alternatives??
