Part-out party! Woot woot

Hey guys it's attempt two at a part out. It's a black 740il. Paint looks good. Black interior looks great. Lights are all intact. If you're in the north east as far as PA, I can deliver it to you. If you pay for my gas.
Will the doors of an il fit my i? The transmission is good. Now taking request. I'll probably take the front passenger door and the wheels. I have some pictures but the lighting is horrible. I'll take better ones tomorrow.
Bring on the request.

Front doors are the same. Rear doors will require a sawzall to fit on your shorty.

I call dibs on the front cup holder!

Could use the front and rear bumpers, but I'm sure shipping would kill me...

So the owner changed his mind. Said he's going to replace his broken block. Having a part-out party is so hard.

The dude just gave up and called me back. Some ppl are insane. Why I pay more than $2k for an e38 with a cracked engine block. Glad he came to his senses. I have to hurry and go pick up before he changes his mind.

One more thing. I have to pay for a space to have my mech friend do the part out. That said I only have about three days and whatever is left is going to the scrap yard. So keep me posted on what ever you need.

You should be able to get it for under $1000!

Those M-Pars should go quick! Be sure to post in the Classified Forum too.

Gotta look at the dates folks! Also, PJ hasn't posted on here in 3 months.

So the owner of the part out party car tried to dick me around once and then came back after two months only to try to do so again. I can't blame him as he really liked the car. But it wasn't like I made an offer. He listed it for sale. So I offered to buy it for a part out party. Any way, I'm having a water pump meltdown that I'm having looked at today. I have the new pump put in, only to have it start leaking again. In a few hours. I'll post some more details on the matter shortly. Wish me luck.
