Looking for Parts to rebuild E36 M3 Sedan

Looking to purchase a used 98 BMW M3 Sedan Hard Top 4 door. But this one needs a lot of interior work to get it presentable. I am hoping to bring it back to its 20 yr old glory.

Does anyone have recommendations on places to to get parts? Please don't say eBay already been looking there with no luck. Someone must be stock piling this stuff as it has not been easy to find. Thanks for all your recommendations. MPower!!!!

Power Seats both from and back or nice leather covers exact fit.
Inside headliner panel with moonroof.
headliner panel that operates the moonroof.
A column panels front back and side.
Stock radio (current one missing buttons)
Glove box button
Various gaskets (door seals, trunk seals, etc.)

As far as new leather covers, I have heard good reviews for Autoberry
http://www.autoberry.com/.
I believe new cushions are still available from the dealer…or you might get lucky and find some seat/seat parts on your local www.craigslist.com

Most folks have local upholstery shop handle a recover. It can be done DIY if you have a large open area to work in. Material from local fabric store.

Same as above.

Quote:
A column panels front back and side.
‘A’, ‘B’, and ‘C’ Pillar coverings. Same as above or watch for these in forums ‘part outs’ or www.craigslist.com

Stock radio (current one missing buttons)
These forums part out threads. Or eBay. Stock CD43 (from Z3) is nice upgrade power wise from original C43 head unit. Do you have HK or non HK sound/speakers/amp? At this point all that is on eBay are Rover labeled head unit take outs, they do fit.
ECS Tuning has a Continental/VDO head unit that matches nicely.
BavSound has one option for E36 speaker upgrade at this point, several people on these forums have sourced there own package.
HK and non-HK require different impedance and all speakers should match.

Glove box button
www.realoem.com, using the last seven of your VIN is going to be your friend here for exact part number. Then go to any of the on-line retailers - FCP European, Pelican, ECS Tuning.

I have heard that Topeka BMW is the least expensive Dealer option, but you have to call them.
www.bmwvwtopeka.com/

I have used Tischer -

https://www.getbmwparts.com

Best to have your list of parts by BMW part number before any searches.
