This just happened to my husband. 2002 540 with low mileage--about 65k. Car is totaled. Firefighters said it was electrical. We have had electrical probs with that care since about 30 seconds after the warranty expired. I'm pushing for anything BUT a BMW.

I almost did but caught it in time thanks to the smell - the rubber fuel hose in the engine compartment was spewing gas all over the engine. Bad motor mounts cause these carb engines to rock quite a bit - which loosens the hose clamps.

I am hoping they are talking about a year 2002 and not a BMW model 2002! If a model 2002 then there are a few obvious starting points like the fellow above. My '88 is charred under the rear seat where something got out of hand in the modules back there. Luckily it made it to the dark side and back to life.

My answer above refers to the carb versions of the 2002 MODEL imported to the USA thru year 1976.
