    Here's someone selling an LS1 from an EV conversion (I think he's in PA):

    no price but they probably want to get rid of it.

    1999 Silver E39 - Houston, TX

    I have about 1 week to decide to purchase car from my work (BMW dealer) before they send it to auction. I can get it for a good price and will sell it for 2500. I already have a e46 waiting for a swap and in the works for a 2000 black E39 to purchase soon. This silver one just came under my nose and thought I would post up. Pictures will be taken tomarrow. Currently diagnosed as bad DME as the engine does not start, no crank signal comming from DME. Installed new crank sensor, wire test indicates lines ok. Engine was also overheated. Potential engine replacement required - not confirmed though.
    again, pictures will be posted tomarrow.
    If 2500 is not a good price for a complete clean e39, what in the forums opinion is a good price (only once pictures have been posted to evaluate the car please).

    I remembered to bring my camera today, Here are a few pictures:
    Exterior is clean, Dent in the truck, picture showing damage. D/S key cylinder no working properly, spins 360*, tires have lots of meat, but shows signs of feathering due to alignment out of spec. Hood emblem needs to be replaced as its discolored.Also mising 2 or 3 roundels on the wheel centers.
    Interior is in good shape. Car has not been cleaned one bit. A/C buttons need to be replaced and a good wipe down.
    Under hood, All cooling system has been replaced except the heater core. Needs DME
    and now the pictures:

    Why is it every time I go to Houston I see a car for sale? If I was interested in a 5 series, I'm not, I might consider paying $1500 to $2000 for it. Rebuilding/replacing an engine is a fair amount of work. Also, since it doesn't run, there is no telling what else might not work. Might get lucky and fix DME and car runs well, but I doubt it. What BMW dealer?
    For comparison, in March 2010, I bought a 97 M3 sedan that was overheating. I paid $1800 for it.

    I think I will just buy it, detail it in side/out, test function of everything and get a refurbished dme , either way, it needs it for the bmw engine or gm... if i want the factory cluster to work w/o mods to it and go from there... all else fails, I hopefully willl end up with 2 e39's make one really nice one, and sell the other as a clean roller for cheap.

    Hey all, I am ready to do my LS1 swap and am in need of a donor car with some requirements:

    1995 only
    "is" or coupe only
    No white/silver
    325is/318is is fine, looking for a straight car with good paint and decent interior but with mechanical problems. Not looking to spend more than 1-1.3k on this
    OR a 1995 M3 with major mechanical problems in the above condition for about 2.5-3k

    I have seen a few like this on CList but too far away or owner wouldn't respond.

    If anyone knows of anything I would greatly appreciate it. I live in MD and wouldnt mind driving 200-300 miles each way? What I am asking for may be impossible but I figured I would try! Thanks all.

    meh, I bought the car last week.. turns out it does need a DME. Swaped over the DME and EWS from my 99 e46 that has the same MS42 and EWS3 and was able to get crank signal via INPA.... couldnt figure out how to get ews aligned via INPA but using the ISID I would get an error communicating to DME maybe becuase the vin doesnt match.. Put the original DME/EWS back in and no crank signal since the motor overheated just as the DME took a poo, I dont even want to buy a used DME and figure out how to make it virgin and program it, I will be swapin a 5.3 auto in it. Makes 2 silver BMW's waiting for the heartbeat... haha

    I've been trawling the forums and craigslist looking for an E46 330ci (or better, M3) with a blown engine in the CA bay area, or otherwise inoperable drivetrain.

    Still haven't seen anything in a couple of months though I'm not willing to buy quite yet unless it's a smoking deal.

    What's the best place to look for these?

    (also is copart reputable and is there a reputable broker (copart doesn't let individuals do anything =/))

    Copart is very reputable, all cars through them have proper paper work. Salvage titles and Clear titles. BE SURE you know what you are getting before you bid because salvage titled cars go through Copart.

    Your best bet is to talk with an automotive recycler and tell them what you are looking for and make it an incentive for them to buy the car... ie throw them 1k or so.

    Is there one you recommend?

    Edit: Or is there at least a local one? They don't advertise their services and Copart doesn't "have a list" of them.

    I may just start cold-calling them...

    I'm also looking for a 96 up E36 coupe for an LS1 swap - M3, 323, 325 or 328 depending on price. Can be a roller or with motor/trans but I'm not interested in anything with the interior torn apart or other essential parts missing. I'm located in Louisville KY.
