    E92 M3 parts in Salvage yards.

    Guys in NY, NJ, CT, Pa and other surrounding areas start looking at the auto salvage yards as I have now heard it from both my friend working for BMW-NA in New Jersey and my Salesman here (who has been with BMW for 23 years) that the M3's and 128i/135i's are for the most part heading off to the salvage yards. They are being split up and parts will be sold to a few different salvage yards. Brakes, engines, trannys, wheels and tires, interior parts, everything will be sold! Keep your eyes open!

    That
    I really! really doubt this. BMW would slavage what they could off these cars. Not to mention they arent even available to the public yet.

    BMW is not chopping them up, the shipping companies insurance company is. They had to pay BMW for the loss and they got the resulting cars that have been listed as totaled. I do not know specifically where the parts are going but from both of my sources they are being split up around the different area salvage yards.

    I want the brakes from the 135...

    Seriously though, down here by Atlantic City, I can barely find ANY BMWs in the wrecking yards..

    I understand the simple logic behind the insurnace company buying the totaled cars and owning them.. but I see a huge discrepancy for BMW to let unreleased cars/parts sit in salvage yards.

    Yea, i was wondering about this myself since the cars got ruined at a port only a few miles from where i live now, i was wondering if they were going to crush them, where would they do it and how much would have to get paid to get some parts before hand....

    well, If it does actually happen, I will need to be in contact with someone about some 135i brakes, and some e92 m3 wheels. This is why going to school in kansas sucks, all the fun stuff happens when im not home (pa).
