BMW Junkyard in Houston

That's right. That's what we used to call the car wrecking places. I need a gas cap for an E46 330i. eBay wants about $21 for an used one, including shipping.

I need a few things also, so far the pick a part I went to only had 2 BMWs, and they had nothing left on them. I wonder what part of town will have more BMWs in their junk yards

I checked the yards in Houston, and most are west of IAH. I live 25 mi south of Houston. It's not worth driving 50 mi that way, even if they have the fuel cap. I may just have to buy it from eBay.

I found a guy who Parts out BMW only. He has a large yard where he has about 15 bmw, and about a dozen of them are E46. His name is Freddy, he lives in Aldine off I45. (832) 630-6184 tell him Anthony sent you . I have gotten many of parts from him, cool guy. Just don't ask him to diagnose your car problems
