Product Description

This is a major upgrade to a stock BMW 2002.  Although BMW 2002 is in many respects designed better then a modern car the big weakness was the stock heater box which sits up in cowl area of car.  heater fan motors almost always fail due to water infiltration.   All AC's in 2002's were dealer installed and less then adequate.  This new custom designed combination heater coil and AC coil all in one unit fits nicely in the space and turns HVAC of a 2002 into a modern equivalent.    We have installed in various years  of 2002's and fits perfectly when you remove heater box.   Requires some creativity in making adjusting face plate or we can provide custom face plate and sides for unit to match look you desire.
