I'm restoring my 1985 E30 323i A/T but I already fixed the air conditioning system as the weather in the Philippines is so hot. I also fixed the busted headlight, break light and the muffler. But I'm also looking for the power mirror mechanism which is hard to find.

Yeah I've had a hard time finding a decently priced driver side window regulator. And I'll probably have to get a whole new set of tires before bimmerfest west. My dad is a mechanic so I am very lucky to have some help with mechanical issues.

Well today my dad put my car up on a lift and we found that my front right control arm is almost completely busted. considering that is a vital piece that connects to my ball joint I need to replace it soon. Almost scared to drive my car untill it's fixed lol but i ordered the part today for $90. What pieces are you missing?
