    Lightbulb 2008 BMW 535XI E61 N54 Full Part Out

    I am parting out my 2008 E61 BMW 535xi wagon; it has the N54 motor and 134k miles but has a spun crank bearing and, consequently, a knock; however, in 2019 (18k miles ago), i replaced both turbos due to the infamous wastegate rattle. When i was replacing the turbos, i also replaced most components known to wear out with all new equipment (water pump, engine mounts, o2 sensors, etc. and have all receipts if desired). Additionally, i also upgraded some components as listed below.
    The VIN number is WBAPT73588CX00779 which you can use on a site like to see how the car was originally equipped.

    All parts are located in Puyallup, Washington. Smaller stuff can be shipped (at the buyer’s expense), but bigger stuff will be sold locally; sorry, no international shipping. I have this listing posted in a few different places, i will update each of the listings daily as pieces sell.

    Aftermarket Parts: (I have original receipts for everything upon request)
    Pure Stage 1+ Turbos - SOLD
    BMS Oil Catch Can - $150
    BMS Silicon Inlets 1.75in and 2in - SOLD
    JB4 Tuner w/ Bluetooth Connect - $500
    BMS Charge Pipe - $80

    For an exhaustive list, check out my google spreadsheet (below) of all available OEM parts (with “Real OEM" Part Numbers/Links), pictures of parts, prices, and availability. The car is 80% mechanically dismantled (not including rear diff/suspension). The Interior is 95% intact if you want to stop by and look at it before I remove/dismantle it. The Interior condition is 9/10, with some light scratches, and the carpet has some dog hair, but otherwise, the car was well maintained, with no kids.
    Exterior Color: Titan-Silber
    Interior: Leather color: "Dakota"/Schwarz

    Google Spreadsheet:

    If you are looking for something specific that you don't see listed in the spreadsheet above, shoot me a message.

    That is a bummer. While I was doing the turbos on my 08 E61 535xi in 2020 (about 150k miles at the time), I did the oil pan gasket and rod bearings. Bearings were not great but also not about to fail. I also added a crank guard to protect against a shredding belt working its way past the crank pulley and through the seal into the motor.
