I try to keep an interesting selection of 80s BMW parts in stock at all times. Featured parts currently include:

  • Getrag 250 tranmission, from a late 90s Z3 1.9 (M44). Very low miles, something like 119K.
  • M50B25 complete motor. Unknown mileage, pulled from a ’92 525i (E34). PO claims it was still running, car was parted out due to rust. This is a really early engine, non-Vanos with the thick valve stems and early head casting (840?). Still has the hard-to-find front sump oil pan, M50 intake manifold, belt-driven accessories, iron block, etc.. Also includes the complete wiring harness, MAF & DME. $600/all
  • M30B34 long block, 133K miles, pulled from an ’85 535i. Does not include the wiring harness, injectors or DME. Otherwise complete. I’m told it’s had a rebuilt top end recently due to overheating. Newer rebuilt head was installed, looks brand-new. Needs a few little things like a thermostat housing. Otherwise complete & ready to install. $400.
  • M30B34 Euro long block from a ‘dirty’ ’82 635CSi. Only 117K miles. This is just the engine. It’s been partly dismantled, needs new valve seals at a minimum. New bearings wouldn’t hurt anything either. Does not include the wiring harness, injectors or DME, needs a few little things like a thermostat housing. Still has the full set of high-compression “piano-top” 10:1 pistons. $1000
  • E24 parts car (no title), make me an offer. 1985 635CSi automatic, I believe it’s Diamond Black Metallic over Lama (medium tan) leather sport/power/memory interior. Runs OK but has significant front passenger quarter damage among other major cosmetic challenges. Frame arch is bent over the front wheel & front corner. It can easily be towed but it’ll need a new front right strut to be even minimally roadworthy. Otherwise the car is complete. M-Tech 1 wheel, some other goodies. Make us an offer.
  • Spare E24 front fenders (late model) & hood are also available. I’m looking for $600 out of the set.
  • While I’ve used the M30B32 long block in my project car, it’ll be available again soon. Only 99K miles, pulled from an ’81 633CSi 5-speed. Low-compression US specification, very boost-friendly. I’ve replaced every gasket and seal. It’ll fit most big Bimmers. I have the belt-driven accessories and can deliver within a reasonable distance of southwest PA.
