Question Crank angle postion sensor????

I have looked everywhere for this stupid part and I can't get ahold of one. it sits on or near the crank pully on a 325e 2.7L. Anyone have a good parts place they use that is not terribly expensive? has anyone had this much trouble finding a replacment. The old one has tons of wear damage from a belt. and upon firther inspection the guts are corroded and cracked in half.

not needed

That sensor is only for the test set BMW supplied to the dealers.

Not required for normal operations.

Not true. The motronic cars need the crank angle sensor for spark advance/retard.

Non-motronic cars have a TDC sensor connected to pins 8 (P+) and 10 (P-) , which like KC Ron Carter said, is for diagnostic purposes.

Are you talking about the sensor in the motronic gearbox? If so I know second hand here in New Zealand the part was $50 dollars.. roughly $30 american.
