Legally, im wasting my time fixing the car.
I sadly must do this.
spare me the questions in this thread it is what it is. so here we go.
MODEL: S420 LWB
Lets start with the BAD....get these out of the way.
both drivers seats need leather refinishing, but all functions work.
tails are fully working, but not awesome...some cracks in the plastic from age.
passnger mirror is useless except for the mirror glass itself.
drivers mirror has bad rubber seal, but fully functional otherwise.
passenger rear window regulator
no becker radio and no cd changer. all other audio components are in tact and fully working
wipers on headlights....drivers as far as i know works, passnegers does not.
radiator is original from what i can tell. will update if i see otherwise.
interior rear view mirror is ghetto repaired.
drivers side door lock actuators not functional.
car has NO HEAT so dont ask about the heater control valve. but if you really want it...you have been warned.
door lock actuator for gas door not working.
shocks are normal ones, and are old but car ran smooth. (1996)
Tires not for sale...i can use them on my E38
Wiring harness is a bust.
I do not have the under carriage plastic covers.
1 year old: power steering pump, water pump, rear main seal, transmission seals, oil pan gasket.
Alternator is also a year old. Battery is just over a year old.
less than 3000 miles....motor mounts.
PSE pump works.
door assist pump works, BUT IT MIGHT need a time out screw adjusted. test on your car first tho, because i have a known bad switch that kept activating the pump so its been disabled for the past year to prevent burning out the motor. video soon to be posted showing it works.
cluster fully functional, but needs a bulb in the speedo around the 80mph area.
climate control unit fully funcitonal, but missing 2 horizontal pixels so OFF reads OII as an example.
maf is bosch oem and 1 year old.
all car body modules work. all ECU items work.
throttle body works. no asr codes.
brakes stopped straight, meaning, not shaking or pulling.
i also have unopened, never used, brand new in package full set of front and rear akebono pads and aftermarket rotors.
in coming weeks, efforts to remove the motor and transmission will be made as i am already part way there....drive shaft disconnected, exhaust getting cut off. garbage or cut is getting recycled and the functional parts well these items will be sold.
there are no odd noises, there are no jerking issues. the transmission has been serviced TWICE in the past 14 months due to leaks. TQ converter included. ill sell these items last, as a whole setup or sperated if preferred.
the wiring harness may not be sold, depending on any damages to it if any. at the time of engine removal, all that will be left of the car is the carcass and a full inventory of what i still have available will be posted and updated here.
PRICING: im fair, but keep in mind i just lost my baby. I have a decent amount invested here and am attempting to recover a vast majority of it if possible. I know some of these parts fetch a pretty penny. do not low ball me. currently you can PM me what you want, with an offer (minus shipping) and we will go from there. if you want to research the parts cost and show me feel free and show me...i rather sell it properly than lose out or make people feel like suckers.
TERMS AND CONDITIONS:
all items sold as is, and to be described to the best of my ability. anything not working will be said, or anything damaged will be noted. anything said to be working was working when removed. if it doesnt work when you get it...you are on your own sorry....no refunds or exchanges as i dont have a second part to sell you.
Shipping is paid by the buyer. I ship various methods and whatever is cheapest. i dont drop off parts daily, and if it needs to be removed from the car....it can take up to a week to 10 days. (once parts are already removed drop off time is 1-3 days depending on my schedule). i accept paypal ONLY, OR, local pickup. I WILL NOT SHIP LARGER ITEMS SUCH AS DOORS, SEATS, HOODS, ENGINES, ETC!!!
I do not salvage wiring harness type stuff at this point. i need the carcass of the car gone asap so whatever i can remove i remove and once that happens ill be making a list of each part i have. until then i still do have the complete car in the garage.
currently, I do not have set prices yet. Pm me an offer.
I do not do bidding wars. first come first served.
I DO NOT TAKE MONEY FOR PARTS NOT REMOVED! I ONLY TAKE PAYMENT FOR PARTS THAT ARE REMOVED AND WORKING AND READY TO SHIP!
if you want more history of me, look me up on Crown Victoria, Grand Marquis, Marauder, and Towncar (ID tackleberry) or Bimmerforums.com | The Ultimate BMW ForumBimmerforums.com | The Ultimate BMW Forum (ID sigtwenty). i have been on those sites for years, cvn much longer than hear or bmw board but have sold many items. i dont bullshit people...it is what it is and i tell you how it is.
Thank you for your time, help me recover my funds, and replace my W140 with something else...probably a W126....but its gonna be a while unless some miracle happens!
Videos as promised and more to slowly follow
These videos are simply to show confidence in the performance and stability of the motor and tranny. I do not and never have routinely beat on the car like this often or pretty much ever. Just understand it was for demo reasons since one cannot test drive a motor out of a car. others are of interior items, close assist etc. i want to show the car as best as possible.
PICTURES CAN BE SEEN HERE
PS: i am not stripping parts off parts, if its attached and seems like it belongs, its pretty much staying there.
NOTE: Throttle body is sold, but i DO have a second throttle body same part number as the one off the car but it is NOT known of its working ability. make an offer.
MAKE ME OFFERS ON PARTS! MOST OF THE CARS MODULES ARE ALREADY REMOVED.
Large metal items such as hood trunk and door frames are going to get recycled for cash, however inner door cars are available for sale.
VACUUM PUMPS I DID NOT REMOVE THE HOSES, I CUT THEM FAR AWAY SO I DONT DAMAGE THE CLIPS WHEN REMOVED. YOU CAN SIT A TABLE AND REMOVE THEM SAFER THAN I CAN IN THE CAR.
WHEN I REMOVE PARTS I TRY TO DO THE SAFEST WAY TO NOT DAMAGE THE PART ITSELF, WHICH MAY INCLUDE CUTTING HARNESSES TO PREVENT DAMAGE, HENCE WHY IM NOT SELLING WIRING HARNESSES. (unless of course the part requires the harness in tact then it will remain such)
I DONT SELL PARTS THAT ARE FALLING APART IN MY HAND SUCH AS OLD STUFF THATS OVER AGED
I also do not sell stupid items that the dealer sells for cheap so dont even ask.
pictures of each part available upon request. email will be required.
