1979 BMW 528i

Hello everyone, my name is Gavin, and I am in need of an oil pan for my car. I just got it, and a giant dip came out of no where and ruined my life. I don't have a lot of money, and I am having a tough time finding one. Any help would be greatly appreciated. All I can think of is a pick a part and wish for it to be there.

Thanks everyone,

You might try http://firstfives.org/, but there is not much activity there.
You could post a "want to buy" note at http://www.mye28.com/viewforum.php?f=4 - quite a few E12 owners there.

Part 11131260791 (Oil Pan) was found on the following vehicles:
E12 528i Sedan
E12 530i Sedan

E3 2800 Sedan
E3 2800Bav Sedan
E3 3.0S Sedan
E3 3.0SBav Sedan

If it is any solace, it should not be too bad a job to replace. I had the same thing happen to my '76 530i years ago. As I'm sure you know you will also need to replace the gasket, and if I recall you will need to drop the drive shaft, thus it's a good time to inspect the guibo and replace if necessary.
