Need windows

So, after putting up my 83 320i for sale. she was vandalized. I need to replace all windows.. Not sure where to look. I was going to try the salvage yard today, but it was raining. "just my luck" Does anyone have any windows they don't want or don't need ? Just in case you're wondering what windows.. all of them. Front Windshield, Back Windshield "with defroster" two quarter windows and the driver and passenger windows. I'd be willing to help or pay for shipping. So far the quotes I have for windows are between $800 and $1200 I can't afford that I'm in college... if all else fails I"m just going to dirt track race this car..

I'm in Mississauga, Ontario (Canada)
These parts are in my way, I would like them to go to someone that actually needs them.
How do you want me so send them?
As long as you cover the shipping cost, they're yours.

Most of them are from an 82.
I believe they're the same, but check with whoever you can to be sure.
The door glasses are still in the doors, but I can take them out, no problem.
I might have more than one set of rear quarter windows in frames, I'll check that.
I didn't unplug the rear defroster wires, I cut them off so they have about 10" of wire hanging off them. I did this so I wouldn't pull the contacts off the glass while trying to unplug them.
I'll check with Fedex, and I'll check the cost of shipping by bus, and Quikx.
Do you have somewhere with a dock level they could be shipped to? (If I put them on a skid I think they'll be safer.)
I uploaded a picture of the donor car, I hope it helps.

Sorry its taken me longer to respond. I've been trying to check about the 82 fitting the 83 as far as window's go.. I too think it should.. but I don't have a response back yet about it. I wish I had somewhere with a dock I'm sure that would be cheaper. I can ask about having them delivered to a business.. but I don't know for sure.

No problem. It's been pretty hectic at work this week, so I haven't had much time to look into this.
I will also look into sending them by bus. I have a friend that ships all his large car parts that way.

All of the glass between an 82 US & an 83 US e21 are identical. There are differences in the door windows between the 1977-1979 vs 1980-1983, and the rear quarter windows are different between US & euro (US windows pop out, euros don't).
