BMW 2002 turbo (4-wide)
A 4-wide version of the classic BMW 2002 turbo, the first German production model with a Turbo charger (even before the Porsche 911 got one)
About this creation
I hadn't thought about building a 4-wide "02" until I saw Starscream Soundwave's 4-wide model. I have to say I was heavily inspired when I saw his BMW 2002 and the ideas started coming up. So please take a look at his model first (and leave a comment if you like it). That's where I started with this model.

Left side view: I thought that the classic LEGO Town mudguards would look cool on this model so I added those. Then I changed the lower part of the side panels from wedges to arches. I think they look smoother this way. I've added some spoked rims for the classic sporty look.

Rear right view: No big changes here. I mainly changed the license plate section between the tail lights (Hmm, maybe I should use trans-red tiles instead of plates for those). I also made the window section in 3-wide instead of 4-wide.

Fast and Furious, vintage German style of the 70s: A 914 and a 2002 waiting for the green light :-))
I had to make the front bumper thicker to hide the lower half of the chrome grill for the BMW "kidney". So now it's a 2002 turbo front bumper ;-)). I also added a black roof for the "sporty look" and embedded it into the window line using the 45 deg wedges with the cutout. I remember quite a lot of customized cars with a black roof back in the 70s.

So this is my 4-wide LEGO BMW 2002 turbo. I hope you like it :-))

Update August 10, 2012: Some extra pictures
Rear left view: It really looks better with tiles for the tail lights.

On special request: The "underwear". It almost looks like a modern aerodynamics kit :-)) You can also see the hidden part of the grill.

Bonus pictures: The original 2002 version (1971-1973)
Smooth front end without bumper and spoiler.

Rear end with round tail lights.

Update October 1, 2012:
A new colour scheme for the BMW 2002 turbo: The windows are black, now, roof and a part of front and back are orange. I think it looks a lot better with the black windows...

This looks like a BMW 1M in Valencia Orange!!! Much more than it looks like a 2002 Turbo.

That's extremelly good! I love all the different version you propose, and they are always very realistic! Ich würde jedoch den 914 nehmen, er sieht finde ich noch besser aus als der 2002er turbo. Also wie gesagt extrem gutes auto! 5/5

Quoting Starscream Soundwave I like the orange detailing, but was there any particular reason for it? Haha :)
I wanted to have black windows AND a colour scheme with two colours. This one worked best for me :-))

Quoting Loek Marcus (summer vacation for 3 weeks) Hey Nils, In which town in the Netherlands is that store? Because I wanna know how far it is to drive :-)
The contact data say: "7602 PD Almelo" For further information just search for BrickLink stores with "chrome" in the shop name: http://www.bricklink.com/memberList.asp?searchLike=L&storeName=chrome

Thanks! I'll have a look, but I don't think I will purchase any..
  August 11, 2012
However mine is very simple and yours is very clever, and no doubt more people will use your ingenious idea than mine ;)

Quoting Starscream Soundwave ... Where do you get all your chrome bricks from? I only own two :(
My chrome parts are from different BrickLink stores. You can search for stores with "chrome" in the name and you'll find some. My parts are from a store in Germany and one in the Netherlands. But it won't be cheap: You can calculate about 1,- € extra for each small chromed part. Bigger parts cost even more.

Quoting Starscream Soundwave ... I don't want to sound biased towards my own creations but I think I prefer the smooth front ;) It looks especially good with the chrome brick :) ...
Well I can't really say which one I like most ... I really like the "kidney" grill but I like your smooth front, too :-)).
  August 11, 2012
The underside is just as pretty as the top! I don't want to sound biased towards my own creations but I think I prefer the smooth front ;) It looks especially good with the chrome brick :) Where do you get all your chrome bricks from? I only own two :(

Quoting Cars Lover ... the grey parts for the roof, are they from Lego ...
Of course, I don't have "Copybricks" ;-)) The part is used quite frequently now: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=92946 You can even order them in red and new dark grey via "Pick-A-Brick"

Great, the grey parts for the roof, are they from Lego because I never saw them before, but in all a very impressive creation.

Very clever; Grill/logo of course, but also 3-wide windows and roof, and the rounding off of the lover side panels.

This is brilliant, thanks for mentioning my BMW 2002! Your idea for the grille is ingenious, You get the kidney grille without the cutting:) The window arrangement is very cool, and really changes the look to make it look more realistic. I think the best part is the smooth curve on the side, it looks a lot better than wedges. Great work!

Wow Nils, you made it!! This is a fantastic little replica of the BMW. Looks absolutely great. Nice that you find such a cool solution for the grill. I see it isn't cutted :) Very nice work mate.

Quoting DeTomaso Pantera ... I see you have been shopping for new pieces, I look forward to seeing what you can do with them in the future :-)
I'm still waiting for two BrickLink orders with the last parts for the Batmobile. I hope they'll arrive until tomorrow. That gives me some more time for the last design changes before posting it ;-))

Quoting Iain Marsh Lovely. Flat round tiles at the rear please!
The 2002 turbo was after the MY 1974 "face lift", so it already had the bigger "squared" tail lights.

Awesome Nils. I like the simplistic look to it, looks like you spent a long time getting the lines just right. I see you have been shopping for new pieces, I look forward to seeing what you can do with them in the future :-)

Quoting Paulo Daniel Phew! when I first see it, i thinked you cutted a grille, until I see your technique.
I wouldn't cut it. It's a chrome grill, I've paid too much money for it to do that ;-))

Quoting MortalSwordsman . ... As you say I think tiles would look better for the rear lights.
I've just changed that and it really looks better. I'll take some photos tomorrow (with daylight they get much better).

I do like it, a lot. The grill is fantastic and the 3 wide roof is another great modification. As you say I think tiles would look better for the rear lights.

Great idea, use of the grill piece as BMW logo.
