Need Parts? Link Enclosed

I may have found a gold mine of parts for our cars.
He has 3, 5 and 7 series, but the 5s are in decent shape.
already talking to him about things I need/want badly.
not sure if he will ship, but worth a shot

So how did you fair in last nights storms? I found a free parking garage again and let Otto sit it out for a couple of hours. So all is fine.. Traction control was acting funny this morning after driving through some puddles. But yeah all fine.

I just got a text from the gentleman who owns this yard. He said they will ship the parts and not just do a pick and pull.

So, if you need parts, this may be a good place to start. I am going there this weekend and next to pull/buy parts.
I asked for prices on some parts, but they told me to make an offer then go pull it if I want it.
I really hope there are 4 style 65s otherwise I am going to look at the style 5s they have as long as they are 17-inch and fit.
I'm sure I'll spend 2 full days out there and have a mile long wish list when done.

I'm not sure it is a gold mine, as you can find a lot of guys parting BMWs on CL. There are BMW yards with many times more cars than he has across the U.S. that ship and also are fairly competitive. I wish there a directory though, almost like a bimrs.org set-up where you can search by location. Hmm...

I've yet to see a salvage yard in KC with style 65 wheels let alone this many BMWs at one location. The KC area has a lot of yards and searching, calling and walking has brought me one 7 series with the same wheels as mine (29s) and not other parts I can use.
The next closest is St Louis and I'm not going that far for parts.
So, in my backyard, having someone with this many is a fantastic find.
