I think I have the affliction!

Loaded up the toolbox, loaded up the trunk, off to the local

salvage yards (Central Fl).

The goods:

For the ’72 tii

1 electric fan from a 7 series (bosch, 15”) will see if this fits, 2

electric fans from 320i, they had different mounting systems,

got both of them, 2 320i rearview mirrors, 4 dome light door

switches from 320i, 2 Recaro seats from a 320i, 1 320is

steering wheel, A couple of dash switches from a 320i, 318i

alternator with both mounting brackets, 3 auxiliary power

block thingies from Volvo 240s, complete VDO gauge set

from an Audi 4000 (pressure, temp, volts), two senders; one

from the Audi and one from a VW GLI

For the e28

AC dash switch, several of those tiny dash light bulbs, Interior

dash trim piece, fuses and relays.

For the e34

Little piece of plastic that is the radio search button, Glove

box latch, Light module and general control module (the light

module is a $340+ item!)

Could only find two 320s, several 318s with alternators still in

them. No 2002s, one e12, one ’96 528i and one ’96 M3.

Several e28 528s and many 325s.

There has to be some salvage yard employees with a shit

load of BMW trunk tools!!!!! I found none.

Wife doesn’t know what to think!

Had to share, thanks for reading.

Have to do some research to remember what years have the

better transmissions.

Many of the cars have no wheels and are sitting on the

ground. One yard has them stacked two high, so if you want

a tramission you can't even get to it and it may be damaged

because of the storage. Others had them with the wheels on.
