  1. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Looking to get a 2001 540i that I found on line being sold by a dealer. It's listed at $3,998 with only 109,000 mi. I find that a little cheap for what it is. I'm thinking it could be a salvage title car. :dunno: Any thoughts guys? here's the link...
  2. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hoping to pick up an 01 325 this week. Pulling motor and trans for a transplant into a 99 323. Plan to scrap the rest of the car. The 01 was in a front end collision. So my question is, what is worth removing and selling prior to scraping? I don't see any value in having to store large items...

    I bought a 2001 BMW 330 ci for $3200 that had a history of a salvage title and has 165K miles on the odometer. This is, despite being a salvage vehicle and clearly being driven by a juvenile delinquent for the last couple of years, still a very attractive vehicle but has some definite issues. I...
  4. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    So, my local junkyard sells "builders", and those are cars with major issues, only one or two, and they are easy to fix, maybe as a first car, or you could flip them... Well it sounds like these guys don't have the right license and so they put good cars into the yard after so long. :thumbdwn...

    Hello I am new to Bimmerforums and just made an account. I am looking to buy a 3 series with a manual transmission only. I specifically want an e36 325i/s or 328i/s. However I'am still interested in ANY BMW with a manual transmission so show me what you got. I am not trying to spend more than...

    My very loved and beautiful Le Mans Blue M5 was recently totaled and I am looking to either sell the car as is, or I will potentially part it out. Putting a feeler out here to see if there's interest in it in one piece before I go through the trouble of parting. I still have to do a little...
  7. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hi, Two months ago my e39 525d touring died with 370000km on it. Of course I have a new one (220000km) because these cars drive so well, I can't go back to something else. :-) I was wondering which parts I shall (let) salvage from the old car before bringing it to the recycler. The old car...
  8. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    :tsk: I just bought a 528i with 200,000 miles. For 2,000$ bucks and I want to know if I got a good deal Cons: back windows aren't rolling down. I think it's the regulators but how can I find out ? No fog lights and bumper is a little loose. Missing a screw. Driver side headlight lens has...
  9. California
    A guy hit me from behind and damaged the rear bumper and bent the body below my licence plate. His insurance company has deemed my care a total loss. They value the car at $3,855.00. My car is in great shape. Everything works, AC blows cold, new top, it has blue leather interior and top. 162k...
  10. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I have no intention of parting out my only transportation; but today the question came up in another thread: -> E39 (1997 - 2003) > How do you take apart: Fan/ Fan clutch, Crank Pulley, and Heads? So I ask here ... mainly because I've never sold a car in my entire life. I always give...
  11. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I am struck with a decision to make. I just bought my first car, a salvaged E92 335i. I have no choice but to buy a new hood and I am stuck between 2. Please leave a reply or vote on the poll stating the M3 style or the other one. I cannot make my decision and love both. Same price too.
  12. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Just wondering if anybody has experience parting out something comparable to a 2000 model 323i. Mine has the dreaded ZF transmission failure, and I'm wondering what it might be worth parted out. Straight body, great interior/heated black leather seats, engine healthy, no other failures to...
  13. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi Everyone, So I am new to car buying and I found a deal on a 06' 330i with ZSP 81k miles. The car was in a wreak and has a salvage title. All repairs have been made (according to the owner), and the car is now in good condition. I know salvage cars can lose up to 50% of their value, and I...

    I am selling our E34 after it got hit while parked. It was hit on the drivers side rear bumper. It moved the gas tank spout so you cannot shut the fuel door. The floor of the trunk is very damaged and the spare tire is lodged in it. The exhaust system fell to the ground from about mid way on...
  15. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    Hi - I have the chance to buy a Z4 that looks like new but it had a head-on crash earlier in it's life, so it also has a salvage title. What should I look for to see if it is OK? Do you think it could come out of this and be safe? I don't know who fixed it or what exactly was damaged so all I...
  16. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    Head gasket (driver side) is blown, was thinking about putting a m62 engine but not able to find a good one in my area (So Cal) for the last few months. Car on the outside and inside is very good. Seats and interior are in very very good condition and exterior is clean aside from a few small...
  17. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Hello fellow BMW enthusiasts, Earlier this year I purchased a 2006 750i at an insurance auction, which leads to my questions: I purchased the car for $18,000 site unseen and took possession yesterday. Upon inspecting the car, here is what I discovered, 1. There is a small dent in the hood near...
  18. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Hi all. I was unfortunately smacked yesterday by a driver who wasn't paying attention -- thankfully the damage was only to the driver-side quarter panel, front bumper and the headlight on the driver's side was broken. Given that this is a 7 year old vehicle, I would prefer a used/salvaged...
  19. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    I was looking at Insurance Auto Auction and found this nice lambo. Everything seemed right until I looked at the engine and realized.... WWW.COPART.COM
