The local BMW dealer has had a 750il abandoned at their shop, it is a 1988 with 300,000 klm on it. The motor runs on 11 cylinders and is in need of much attention, body panels are good as is the interior, but everything is worn and tired. My car is a 1991 750il. Do the major components of a 1988 fit a 91. My car is in near perfect condition, but I know how things can go wrong and one part could pay for the cars purchase $1,000.
Is there enough compatible parts on a 1988 to make a purchase of an old car worth while. I do not do my own maintenance and I have a garage that will store the car for me and pay me 50% of what they get for parting out the car.
