Question Trying to get a feeler on part needs from the E38 Community

If you have needs for your 740, see this thread for images: http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=889859

VIN: DN75753

I'm wondering if there is anything from this car that some of you folks would find usefull? I'm anticipating the rims and engine spoken for. Both I and the owner would rather see the car parted out than crushed. It is weeks away from crushed status, tell me what you'd take, and how much it'd be worth to you. You may get your wish, but I'd like to know if there's even demand for these parts.

A little info, a man had a seizure and erased the rear and trunk off of the car. The owner just put a bit over $20k into it. Including new front seats with new heaters (potentially reupholstered, I'll get definite answers, just never asked when he said new). New steering box, some new suspension work. New brakes. New BMW installed engine 4000 miles ago. The entire dove grey interior seems to have survived. I would have expected some brown stains on the driver seat, but all is clean.... Not sure if it's normal, but rear heated seats also. I'd like to offload the interior in one, but I'll entertain specific needs. The chassis has 385k on it, and the owner kept very good, constant, care for the vehicle until it was totaled obviously.

Thanks for reading, looking forward to hooking up some folks if the value is there for everyone.
