    Salvage Yard inventory

    Sticky?

    I recently needed to find a few parts. Car-parts.com isn't overly helpful when it comes to Crazy Rays and, well, many BMW specific parts aren't listed. I was thinking it might be nice to put together a BMW-specific inventory as we find them in the various local yards.

    I'll start it off. Try to keep the template basically the same:

    Yard: Crazy Rays: Mt. Airy 1-8-11

    Car: Late 1990's 5- series.

    Location: Straight towards the back off the main isle at the top of the hill on the left about 5 rows from the very back of the yard.

    Details: Silver with grey leather interior. Pretty complete car with little visible damage (don't have any idea why it was there). M52 engine. Not sure what the exact model was but the car was an auto with 5 really nice rims (they would make an excellent winter tire set up). Don't know the style but they were the same as my brother's 540i Sport.

    They also had a few e30's but I didn't look too closely at them.

    I like this idea. I know it says it every time you post, but maybe include the date you went and saw the parts. Depending on the yard, inventory can move fairly quickly.

    Updated with the date and car location in the yard. Also send a request to MadHatter to sticky this. Please update with what you guys know is out there.

    I'm specifically hoping to find a Z3 in Arctic Silver to rob a driver's side rocker from if it's in good condition.

    Good luck with that...Ive only seen a Z3 there once and it was robbed of everything pretty much immediately.

    Foreign Car Parts in Upper Marlboro had a blue (exterior color) Z3 that looked in good condition (it was up on a stand) about 2 weeks ago. Lots of e39 and e46's in the yard.

    Please let me know if they have any manual, prefacelift e46 sedans. I need to find one with no front damage.

    Is this place open on weekends? If they have one, I'll come down Saturday morning for parts.

    I have never seen an e46. But they are open every day of the week.

    Actually the only time I have seen anything never than 98 was an e39 at edgewood and jessup

    Today at Jessup:

    E39 with a really nice black leather interior with dark wood trim that is all intact minus drivers side door panel with blown airbag.

    E30 with pretty good condition cardinal rear seats. Fronts weren't in good shape and the front door cards didn't have the door pulls or the map pockets.

    1990 325i - Mark D Chip, 19lb Injectors, H&R Race Springs, Koni SA, Borbet Type M's
    1994 325i - Soon to be OBDI S52 powered! with 3.5" MAF, Supersprint Headers, Stromung Cat Back, TRM Tune, H&R Race Springs, Bilstein Sports

    This is a good idea. Maybe in the first post of this thread a list of salvage yards, and basic info about them.

    I think I'll be going back to Crazy Rays (Mt. Airy) again this weekend. Anyone want to go with me?

    Not at Jessup. There was one at Mt. Airy but it looked pretty picked over (older style miata). Not worth the drive.


    Updates: Mt. Airy has nothing new.

    Jessup: A couple of e30's (like 4), two older 5 series (same era as the e30, and two 7 series (same era as the e36). All of them were thoroughly raped. Not worth going to.

    Anyone stop into the other CR's yet?

    Best Auto Used Auto Parts in Frederick has a 97Z3 sans engine, seats, center counsel and pretty much everything else useful. Black interior, non-roll hoops, door panels look good (inside and out)
