The bumper for my 1986 528e arrived today and it is spotless! Thank you so much for the quick shipment and for the care you put into the preparation and delivery. You were very detailed as to the condition before I purchased it and it arrived in even better condition than I expected. I will be in touch for needs as they arrive in the future. Much appreciated. -- KP

Thanks again for the great service! I'll be looking for you if I need anything else! -- JG

Nice people

Last Updated: 11/24/2018
The election was last week, and my Republican and Liberal friends are polarizing my FaceBook feed with witty and insightful -- but also mean-spirited -- posts. So when someone cuts through the crap and does something super-nice, it's the sort of thing that, to me, personifies America and the benevolence I love, even though often I experience it from opposite sides of the political spectrum. Here's today's example:

Some time ago, my little company sold a used bumper to a nice gentleman who loves his 1980s BMW 5-series car. I own one too, and I love it. When someone near and dear to me needed a 4-door car, I suggested a 1980s BMW 5-series. She bought it in Reno, and I drove it 2,000 miles to her place in the South. It was a delight to drive, with the only problem being that the fuel consumption seemed to defy the laws of chemistry. The BMW 528e is uncannily fuel-efficient yet powerful. By now, it's several years later, and she also owns two convertible BMWs and a convertible Mercedes-Benz SLK, but when she makes a long-distance trip, it's the BMW 5-series that she trusts the most.

I'm about to teach someone else, who's also near and dear to me, how to drive a stick-shift car, and I can think of no more-forgiving or more-endearing vehicle than my 1982 BMW 528e. There's much to love about these cars. Our customer loved his BMW so much that he replaced a great many parts, including cosmetic parts that were still structurally OK but didn't look spiffy any more. He sent me a picture of the result. His car looks AMAZING now that he's done all that work.

What did he do with the old parts? He packaged them lovingly and shipped them to me as a present. He even picked up the $55 tab for shipping. This way, when someone wants one of these getting-ever-more-rare parts, they get to hear "yes, we have some decent-condition used ones" instead of "sorry, nothing." People like this gentleman give me hope.
