    E30 boneyard in the DC area?

    Anyone know of a junkyard in the DC/Baltimore area that has either E30's or BMW's in general?

    Looking to do some parts pickin'... I broke the plastic cover on my '91 318is' check panel, and it does not appear that the cover itself is available, just the whole panel, at over $80.00.

    Thanks!

    John-

    I seem to recall someone mentioning a high end junk yard in Frederick-the MB Club actually did a tour of it one time. If I find the info, I'll post it here.

    Here you go John-

    This is from a post on bimmerforums about the Junkyard Tour that the Mercedes Benz Club did:

    "JUNK YARD TOUR
    Potomac German Auto - Frederick, MD
    Saturday, November 15th, 2003 10am-Noon
    ($10 per person - light refreshments)

    The Inaugural GWS "Junk Yard Tour" come see the world's best example of an "reverse" automobile factory. On Saturday, November 15th, Potomac German Auto will allow us to tour the largest recycling facility in the country devoted exclusively to Mercedes-Benz and European automobiles. Come see and learn about the clean, orderly, and environmentally focussed dismantling operation; as well as, the inventory and distribution process. Find out about the special arrangements with Mercedes-Benz that allows PGA to provide surplus OEM parts. This is a rare opportunity for a behind the scenes look at a unique, first class operation."

    If you go let us know what you think. My '91 318is could probably use some parts too.

    Did you tried Branywine in Upper Marlboro? Many years ago I was able to find lots of good parts there.
