    Parting out before scrapping - 99 740iL Green/White

    Hi all,

    I have a friend's 99 740iL (green exterior cream/white interior) in my garage. It last ran over 2 years ago and has been sitting in a garage since then. I offered to help him get it running (before I saw it). I could not get it to crank (no power coming from EWS pin 1 or 2, but dash lights up). It is too far gone (interior and exterior are in bad shape) and needs too much maintenance to make it even worth paying to get it to crank, so it will be towed very soon (i.e. probably in a few days). If there is anything from this vehicle, let me know. If I can manage the removal and shipping (at your cost) without too much trouble, I will. Don't get your hopes up, though, this car is in pretty bad shape inside and out. I think I need to keep the wheels to be able to have it towed - they're in bad shape too. I'm in Houston, so if you're in the area, you're welcome to come by and take a look.

    Chris

    Sorry, I didn’t get emails on thread responses. Car is not gone yet, but now only waiting to see who wants what. I didn’t bother with pics, but if you PM me with request and phone, I’ll text you pics of what you want. I got two PMs already and have responded to those. Trunk tool kit is nearly complete if anyone needs anything out of that.

    You may want to know the rear door ashtray's on an iL vs. an i are different and you can't swap them across from one to the other.

    Boy, that's a fun fact I didn't know about, but in the back of my mind I did ask myself that question. I need it for the iL project I am working on, so it'll work out good (I hope).
