ty gunyvw ill search online yard inventories for them too... i bought my first one 2 years ago for 600.. i rebuilt it from the ground up only to total it a month ago... but im back in one and this ones better for the conditions here in il, just hate havn to relearn everything about it all over again like i did the last one.. i probaly shouldo f got the 3.0 it shares alot more parts with the 328i but i wanted more power and better traction, and the 3.0 is a fat pig. i was supposed to get the 4.8 si but the guy on craigs list sold it before i could get to michigan to pick it up so i had to settle for this 4.4i with the problems im having but i only paid 2 for it so i think itll work out
