    WTB: E30 M42 upper oil pan

    I finally found the time to piece my car back together with the quarantine going on but the last part I still haven't been able to find locally is an upper oil pan for the E30 M42. I found a lower but after throwing it on I realized the upper was also damaged.

    FYI, multiple people PM'ed me saying they had the part for sale or knew someone who did and offered their email addresses. I emailed them and it was clear that they were trying to scam me. Be aware that there are people on the forum actively monitoring WTB posts and trying to scam people via PMs and email. I could post the account usernames but they just signed up the day I posted and I'm sure they'll just open new accounts the next time they try this.

    Still looking for a pan.

    what year would have that? sounds like something you need to go to P&P for.

    The only 1990, 1991 e30's I see at P&P are 6 cylinders, 325is, 325ic

    I always see this guy post on Craigslist. I reached once a few years ago but they didn't have what I needed. I can't vouch for how legit they are but worth a shot.

    Yep, that's Paul, he's a good dude and a good resource, but unfortunately he doesn't have the oil pan. I may have found one though up north!

    Hey Brian, it's Allan from Oregon. Been a while! I've got one too if your other one falls through.
