In my country this is definitely not offensive!

So I found a local who is parting out a 2000 540i. Going to grab the oil pan for 25 bux, thinking about grabbing some other cheap spares. Any ideas what I should grab, thinking about taking the coils, maybe the fan clutch.

CD changer. Maybe the fan shroud, since they're usually as brittle as the rest of the GDCS and you might mess yours up. Cats, depending on how many miles are on the donor car. Mine started getting plugged at about 80K miles - just after I sold it to somebody else.

Just replaced the fan shroud! Going to see if the guy has any stock wheels and tires for cheap while I am there. Good advice on the cats.

Interior door handles? They're not too expensive, but they break themselves - and your heart - with annoying frequency. Definitely check on the wheels. I had the stock 16's on mine and would have been really happy with 17's. At worst, you can have a set of 16's for snows (if it sees snow). Business CD if it has one - they're worth a bunch on eBay.

How are your displays? Loss of pixels?
