View Full Version : what should i grab?

03-17-2009, 12:28 AM
i found a mint 88 2 door 325is, only prob is that the front passenger side caught fire, only thing burnt is fender and a bit of hood. right now i have an 89 325i 4 door and an 84 318i 2door, was wondering what parts i should grab from the IS to put in my four door or 2 door what is the diff between the i and is . it has full black leather sport interior etc.
i probably cant get the carpet, its at an autowreckers. what should i pay for the interior from the wreckers? leather seats and door cards. i grabbed the shadowline door and fender trim, spoiler and 2 door gaskets today for $45. he asked me what i thought it was worth, i said $40, he said 40 plus tax. anyways, what is the most i should pay for interior from the scrapyard, i am pulling it.

I find scrap yards way over priced for certain things and many of times I end up buying a complete parts car for less then I would have originally spent at a scrap yard. I agree with what was said above, $100 max.

what scrapyard it this?
are there any scrapyard in ottawa?

most scrap yards are over priced, what I meant was I can buy an entire parts car from a person that has one and just wants it gone, I would never consider buying a complete car from a scrap yard unless it was being sold for $100 or something. Not to sure about scrapyards in Ottawa, but I know there's a good one in St. Bruno, not to far from Montreal.

they want $250 for the interior, think its too much?

What scrapyard is it at, I also need a couple items, no worries I dont need the interior.

well went today and got all the seats and door cards along with the blower motor, ecu, cant wait to see if it is chipped, spoiler, side moldings all for under $200. Seats look great, obviously some wear and tear but only 2 small rips about a cm. long. so i am going to install the black leather in my 84 318i, move the tan leather from the 84 into the 89325i and then i am not sure what i am going to do with the cloth seats from the 89. Oh i also got a rear view mirror from the 325is that has map lights on it, pretty cool, havnt heard much about them, rare item or just not that exciting? anyways, have a good one

Wow, sounds like you got a great deal, I would have gladly paid $200 for all that, love the map light mirror, I'm looking for 3 of them myself, I'm hoping to pick up a few complete parts cars with all those goodies in them sometime this summer.

I think you got a good deal, I paid $230 for (only) a black leather Recaro interior (very close to mint condition) and I thought that was pretty good...

Also, one more thing, I go to the wreckers all the time, and I have yet to find a decent interior in an E30 at one. They seem to be a popular item, people take them out right away. Just to find one seems pretty fortunate, as I said above, I think the price was very good as well based on all the other parts you got...

i admit i dont get lucky very often, cant even win a free coffe on roll up the rim, but i am happy with this. I took the tan leather interior out tonight, stem cleaned the carpets, have a heater in the car overnight to dry them and will install new black interior in the morning.
