    Parting Out 1998 E38 740I in Ventura, CA - Alpine White on Sand Beige

    Previous owner said it was driving down the highway and the engine completely lost power. It then sat for years. It is seized, so I suspect it had a timing chain guide failure. 157k miles, very nice interior and overall a nice body except for a rough trunk lid. VIN: WBAGF8325WDL54412

    Window regulators are tested and all work well except for driver's rear. Rear pass makes a little bit of noise.

    Sunroof works. Power rear sun shade works. Rear window manual sun shades are in good shape.

    All door speakers work. HVAC panel works - all buttons light up and work. Steering wheel tilt and telescoping functions work. All steering wheel buttons that I can test work.

    Hazard and center locking switches work. All doors lock and unlock from central locking switch.

    All seat functions work, including memory and lumbar support. No twisting. The controls panels are loose. They had sheepskin covers so the front seats are in above average condition.

    Radio works but pixels are dead. DSP panel works well with no pixel issues. Cluster does not seem to have any pixel issues.

    Some examples of prices:

    Transmission - $260
    Staggered Style 37 M-Parallel Wheels - $500
    Complete Interior - Headliner to Carpet - $450
    Both Front Seats - $300
    Front Bumper - $140
    Hood - $140
    Complete Front Clip - Hood/Fenders/Radiator Support/Front Bumper - $400
    Fenders - $80 each
    Window Regulators - $50 each

    Trevor, do you still have this E38 part-out or another you are parting?
