The Junkyard Thread

I could have sworn there was once a junkyard thread - no luck in searching for it. Anyways, have you guys seen any E30's at any of the local U-Pull-It type places lately? I'll be heading out this weekend to see what I can find.

u pull and pay, Aurora, Tower & Colfax, has a 325ix e30, 2 95's, 318is 325i, 93 318i, 90 525i. I've taken a number of parts out of there most of the cars were fairly straight.

I may need to make a run to Denver this Saturday also. I need a drivetrain from an early E28 528e from trans to axles.

EDIT: can't find any E28s in the yards. I'll prob go anyway because there is alot of good E30 crap, and I need to find a MAF from an M62 car.

MAF from an M62 car - is that a -800 part number? I might have one. Not as cheap as a junkyard though.

Went today. Found no e30's other than a vert at u-pull-it. Few e21's, one '02, an e46, and an e34 wagon.

Anyone have a drivers side headlight bracket?

Ok what junkyard is "u-pull-it"? is that different than "upullandpay"? because upullandpay has an iX in Aurora.

That's a little too much driving though.

I was referring to the one off Peoria - it may have changed it name since I started going there 10+ years ago.

Where is the one in Aurora? And do you recall what is left of that car? I need an iX pwr steering hose, drivers headlight bracket.

I went to the one in Aurora today. iX has been pretty well picked over but it does have both diffs and the subframe still. Scored an arm rest and a 2nd french MB highbeam, among other things...

I believe one of the coupes at Aurora has the houndstooth interior panels in decent shape.
