I am looking for some parts for a 1990 325i. The car is Schwarz but if you have these parts in another colour I may still be interested.

Body Parts (Rust Free)-

-Front Bumper and valance
-Rear Valance
-Both Front Fenders
-Driver Side Door (possibly)

Misc-

-Idle Control Valve
-Crank Sunroof Parts (I have not figured out the exact problem yet)
-Emergency Brake Parts (I have not figured out the exact problem yet)
-Trunk Lock Mechanism (I have not figured out the exact problem yet)
-Sport Seats
-Basketweaves
-Uncut Keys

If you do not have these parts but know of a good (or cheap) place to get them then please let me know.

Thanks

That would be great. I'm going to check and see what the problem is and what I need.

Your parts are buy one get one free right???

Hopefully I can figure out the problems tomorrow so I can start gathering parts to fix them.

I will let you know what I need as soon as I know.

I've been searching for parts all afternoon. I found a lot of what I need so far.

I sent out some PM's for the body parts that I need. I haven't heard back yet but I won't start to worry until Spring. Brand new aftermarket fenders are about $130 each and they come with a black primer finish so if I get desperate I can live with those.

I found the idle control valve for about $200 online.

Blank keys for $10 each on E-Bay.

There is a set of Euroweaves for sale on the forum without caps and with curb rash. I'm not sure about pricing for these so I may wait to see what else comes up. I would like a set of basketweaves so Euroweaves may be the best option... Maybe re-drills?

Yikes! Dude, buy a used ICV and clean it. 200$ is outrageous... when you can buy a used one for less than 40 bucks.

If you ever find Euroweaves for 500 or under, snap 'em up! If I were to sell mine, I wouldn't let the 5 of them go for less than 750. Food for thought. I'll look tomorrow morning for those sunroof mechanism parts and see what I have.

I found some used ones on E-Bay and R3V, but I would just be worried about buying one and having it not work. I guess I could try one out. I still need to look at mine to see if it can be fixed.

Would $500 be a good price for a set of 4 without caps, tires, and with curb rash?

That's pushing it. Depending on how bad the curb rash is, and if they may be bent... that would be the deciding factor for me. For some reason, people ask a lot for caps, so take that into consideration with the price.

I came so close to getting an ICV today but unfortunately it did not work out. But now I am more confused then ever.

My car has a 'T' shaped ICV that is black and silver. When I check online sometimes it says I need a 'T' shaped and sometimes it says I need an 'L' shaped one. Realoem only shows 'L' shaped in their diagrams. Even if I change the year it only shows 'L' shaped.

Also most that I see for sale on the forums are 'T' shaped.

Is the shape dependent on the year or the model?

No idea. Most of the later cars I see have T shaped ones. When I put my car together, I used an L shape one, because I had more of those as spares at the time.

I guess I could use an 'L' shaped one but then I think I would need a new intake boot and a new ICV hose.
