Where to find E30 misc parts?

It starts to drive me nuts, I prefer brand new or used parts in great condition and it seems they are impossible to find, where do you guys look for them? I need a minty rear bumper support, un-broken bumper trim pieces for front and rear, interior carpet(s), kick panels, 6 button obc.

Mostly I get my interior stuff from my bins labeled "interior E30 parts".

Jokes, I get what I don't have from R3Vlimited.com, or locally from junkyards.

Get a cheap parts car!
Ebay.de is your friend lol for your euro needs lol

Like Max said, r3vlimited.com is good. E30tech.com is another one.

There are a few e30 part hoarders here on Max! E30 tony is a good person to know! If he doesn't have it I'm sure he can find it.

Also PJ from bimmerboys has been nothing but great to me. I have done a good amount of transactions with him.
I know you guys had a hiccup along the road, but he can get brand new stuff for extremely reasonable prices. He can even source used stuff too.

Anyways, hope this helps and I love your 5er lol

Good luck.

Or drag on a door...or drag on a hood...or an entire floorpan...

Standard Auto buffet days are something everyone should experience once.

^^^ yeah x5 bought a load of stuff from Richie too. He is in Oshawa but right off the highway. Got me some mint black heated sports, unused ski bag door, map light rear view, factory locking gas cap, mint OBD and and uncracked fogs. Stuff that was tough to find elsewhere and the price was sweet.

Not to mention Richie is up to parting 1 e30 a month so inventory is always being refreshed. Last time i was there he must have had the equivalent of 3 complete e30's worth of parts and then some!!!
