    Hey guys I’m in a bit of a bind and need some help/referrals. Does anyone know someone who fabricates exhaust manifolds and can TIG? I need a portion of my turbo manifold modified by next week to make it to the e30 picnic :D

            We do. We normally convert to a R134a system though.

                Bimmerheads business is on fire in here :firehop:

                Whereabouts in LA? 'Tis a big place.
                Btw did you get those motor mount arms? I have a set you could buy

                I'm driving up to Bimmerheads on Saturday if anyone wants to throw parts in my car or drive with me (in their own car). I'm coming from Torrance.

                  I'm going to LKQ this weekend 40% of im hoping to score a e34 pan and the arms. If I don't get them then I'll probably buy yours. Gotta get this project moving.

                  Im in the southbay also.

                    I have a strong feeling that somebody already grabbed the pan. People know its worth and will grab it immediately, regardless of a sale. You'd have to do the same once you get that email. The arms are probably still there though.

                    As for machining, since you're also in the south bay, I can recommend Vellios. They've done some engine work for me.

                    But I also recommend Matt & Shant at BimmerHeads, because they're more experienced with BMWs ;)

                      There are guys that have the drop on those sought after swap items at least in Wilmington. They have a relationship with the workers at the yards to get first pickings before the cars drop. These same guys sell parts on CL.

                          Thanks, I'll give Vellios a call.

                          Lkq can be pretty lame, but I cant complain I got my m54b30 for 250$ There's a 5 speed 88' 735i that just got put in. I want to buy the whole power train. To bad about the car apparently there's only 200 in NA with a 5 speed.

                            Every time I've gone to LKq to grab parts from an e34 m50 car, even if I go the same day I get an alert the pan and dipstick are long gone. Someone has a line on them, it's incredibly frustrating. I've gone to both Anaheim and Ontario with no luck.

                              I'll admit I had the great luck and pleasure of walking into the yard on day, looking for something else, and I walked by an e34, just thinking whatever, I'll go look anyway, and by golly it was untouched! I check my phone, their site, and it hadn't been listed yet. So I grabbed the pan, and I got an email notification at the end of the day.

                              Needless to say, they aren't updating their system the moment the car arrives. Sometimes you just have to be lucky.

                              Be grateful they they at least have an online inventory. Some yards don't. And 10+ years ago, none of them did ;)

                                e30s are never at the yards anymore.
