Despite BMW's still tentative hold on profitability, they launched the 2-door 1600 or 1600-2, later named 1602, in 1966 as the first in a new line of sports sedans (02 Series / E10). This move paid off allowing them to establish a foothold in the US and led to the addition of the now famous 2002 in 1968. More versions with different engines soon followed like the 1600 TI, 2002 TI, 2002 tii, 2002 turbo, 1802 and the entry-level 1502. A 3-door hatchback version (2002 Touring) was also released as well as cabriolet conversions from Baur. The line was replaced by the BMW 3-Series in 1976.

Seat Upholstery

World Upholstery & Trim offers front seat kits and rear seat kits for the 02 Series Sedans from 1966 to 1976. The seat remained the same from 1966 to 1973 but there were variations in the headrests. Headrests weren't introduced until 1969 and even then, the really early ones were slightly smaller than the ones used later. 1974 introduced a slight change in the seat and headrest design but the seat structure did not change much, in fact some 1974 headrests can be found in earlier seats as they are interchangeable. In 1975, the side post headrests were finally replaced by the more common bottom-post headrest along with a new seat design. The 2002 turbo had its own type of seats designed for racing.

Seat parts like the pads, frame, cables and other hardware are not included in the kit. Seat covers are pre-sewn and ready to be installed; installation will require removal of the old seat upholstery as well as possible fixing or replacement of internal seat parts like the seat pads. Replacement seat pads for most front seats are available except for pads for the 2002 turbo seats.

Carpet Sets

World Upholstery & Trim offers interior carpet sets for most models of 02 Series sedans. The carpet did not change much except that they changed from cut and bound carpet to molded in the later years of the model line. The floor did not change significantly so the same cut and bound carpet pieces can replace the molded carpet. We offer both the "cut and bound" and molded version of the 02 Series carpet.

There are certain factors that affect the carpet set. Automatic transmission cars are slightly different from manual versions because of the pedals. Baur conversions will have slight changes in the side areas because the conversion added body reinforcements that affect the carpet. Touring cars had carpet in the storage area behind the rear seats and can be bought as a separate set from the interior set.

World Upholstery & Trim offers pre-sewn replacement headliners for most 02 Series sedan models. This does not include the hatchback and cabriolet versions. While there were many different 02 Series models, the chassis did not change and thus there were no significant changes for both the carpet and headliner. The only variations are whether the sedan has a sunroof or not. The original "snakeskin" textured vinyl is used to reproduce the headliner.

These replacement headliners are already cut and sewn to fit and ready for installation but headliner replacement as a whole is an arduous task so we still recommend the use of professional installers.

Door Panels

World Upholstery & Trim offers door panel replacements for 02 Series sedans from 1966 to 1976 that includes both the board panel, the upholstery skin and the chrome strips. There were only 2 versions: an early version (1966-1973) and a late version (1974-1976). The original manufacturer still offers OEM door panels for the early version. These panels comes in only 3 colors (black, blue and brown) and all of them have a black header. The late version OEM panels are discontinued but we are able to reproduce it complete with heat-sealing and chrome strips.

These door panels are sold as is seen below. You will need to re-use or replace all other attachments as well as put the holes on the vinyl during installation. The board panel itself already has all the most commonly used holes. Door panel clips that attach the panel to the door are normally re-usable but are sold separately if needed. The same clips are used for all 02 Series model years.

Rubber Seals

In fact we are also able to offer reproduction version of the more common rubber seals. It will not be the same rubber material used by the original manufacturer but it will fit and is much more budget friendly.
