Anybody have links for good places to buy parts?

I'm having trouble locating good OEM and aftermarket parts, namely front bumper replacements or chin spoilers, OEM stereo components, replacement OEM wood dash pieces, etc.
www.bmaparts.com

either Yves or Patrick can help you out.

Somebody already listed this link;

http://www.e38.org/e39/

but it's pretty much everything you every wanted to know. almost every link on there is worthwhile.

I've been in the middle of doing my valve cover gaskets and this is by far the best guide for V8 engines;

While you got your valve covers off, have them beadblasted and powdercoated. I found this guy out in Texas who agreed to blast, prime and powder coat both covers for only $40 plus 2 way shipping;

Good Luck!

Compiled Links

Useful links

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tried to compile some links by category. Although most of us have them, I thought there are quite a few people who don't. Whoever has good links for parts, DIY, etc, please post them - then we know where to look. Dan encouraged me to post them here. I don't know how to make it so everybody can add links to the categoties below, or create new categories, but here they are. Will update as time goes by.
