    Parting out e39 98 528i white, 118K miles

    hi guys, i'm really liking this forum.... only wish i found it earlier

    i'm parting out my e39 after it was in a minor accident. a truck hit me in the front passenger side. only body damage (to hood, fender, headlight, bumper) but they totalled it out and i thought it was a waste so i bought it back from them.

    everything is for sale, no matter how big or small.

    it's posted on chicago's craigslist. if you just search e39 you'll find it. its title is :

    BMW 528i e39 parts --- parting out car

    (i guess i'm not allowed to post the link yet???)

    anyway, let me know what you need. some big items have already been sold:
    engine (minus all the bolt ons, intake, fuel rail, coils, etc...)
    trunk lid
    driver's door
    door mirrors
    cup holders (of course)
    wheels (but i have the full size spare that has a brand new tire on it)
    sunroof
    rear seat

    I'd be interested in the lower engine cover (screen - the one with the small, square trap door) if it is intact and in good condition.

    Please PM me.

    i don't think he can PM yet..

    I'd be interested in one or two of the wheel caps for the stock wheels if they are BBS style.(i think they are).

    Possibly the CD changer as well, just to have it collecting dust in the trunk.

    email me at elias_88_98@hotmail.com if you want to deal. I'm trying to think of more parts i need.

    you're right i can't PM yet. i'm a long time reader, but recently joined to post.

    james: i did not sell the bottom engine cover, so i will check what condition it's in and post back

    btmline dan: if you are referring to the climate control display/controls/unit it's already gone, sorry.... if not help me understand what you need?

    FP5241 - i actually sold the hood because it wasn't all that bad (better than the other guy's) the driver's side fender is MINT so is the driver's side headlight

    also the passenger fender is not all that bad, just dented in at the first 3-4 inches after the headlight.

    this car was really not all that bad. i was planning on fixing it myself, but the parts would have been a headache (or a big cost) to find and i found such good deals on two other Bimmers that i decided not to bother with it and focus on the new additions to my collection

    The interior trim still left? Are all the pieces there? Do you have NAV? (I don't). I'd like to replace the wood I have on mine with another color. I'd be willing to buy yours (even wood) to try to sand/paint another color.

    Let me know what it would take to get it. Thanks!

    Do you have the wooden trim piece that covers the cd or cassette door that tilts up? I am looking for one in high polish Vavona wood, part no. 51 45 8 159 744. It is attached by compression rings over three small posts. They can be easily dremeled off to remove.

    email me at fredchan50@hotmail.com Thanx!

    hi ashirji, the console wood is sold along with the other wood trim, like i mentioned above. thanks for your interest.

    as for the arm rest, it's beige like the interior of the car.

    hi and thanks for your interest.

    Are you referring to the button that's on the climate control unit? If so, I'm sorry but I sold the whole unit recently.

    I am selling the whole glovebox for $25. I could take out the lock mechanism if you want, but it would be the same price simply because the glovebox isn't worth anything without it.

    Let me know if I can help you out in any way. Are there any other parts you're interested in? Where in the country are you located? If you're far away from me in chicago, then it probably makes more sense to take the lock out to save on shipping. i can't imagine USPS for the lock would be more than $5.

    silly items are the best ones

    which side do you need? i still have both. so no caliper? just bracket?

    if just bracket: $25 shipped, cool?
