Hi can anyone tell me what their assessment is of stripping parts from a 840i and if they might fit any other model?

Hi Norrie,

Do you mean fit any other e31 or any other BMW?

Cheers

There are a few items that could be interchanged with the e32.

Generally speaking all the e31's with the exception of engines share similar components but I would not like to say they are universally the same.  It would always be best to check the parts on Real OEM.

Are you breaking an e31 and therefore just wondering if there is a market?  If this is the case and you have the time and space you are likely to easily make £5-£10K.

Not sure if I have answered your question but hope this helps.

Cheers
Graham
