Wreck Purchased: Urgent: Melb TTB122 3.0d

Hi Guys,

The wreck of my written off 2005 3.0d was sold in Melbourne last Thursday.

I'd like to contact the buyer, but the auction house won't tell me who it is due to privacy law. I was going to attend the auction, but couldn't due to work.

If the buyer is going to wreck it, I'd like to buy some parts off it.

If the buyer is going to repair it and use it, I can help them out with some original parts that will make their life much easier.

The Rego is Victoria TTB122.

This link is to the auction. They incorrectly listed it as a 3.0i 5 speed auto! It's a six speed 3.0d.

Cheers + thanks,

Hi Again,

So, I wasn't able to locate the car, but if you know who's got it, tell them about my ebay sale: they can make some $.

This is what happened:
I was halfway through installing a new stereo. The speakers in the front were a 1500$ (new) Dynaudio Esotec System 342 set of 3-way front door speakers (tweeter+mid+woofer).

I had installed the passenger side, but I hadn't put the one in the driver's door yet, and had to go away for the weekend with the job half finished, BMW factory original in driver's door.

So; we got t-boned, hit by another car in the driver's side, and the car got written off, taken by the insurance company and sold at auction. The car (wherever it is) still has 750$ worth of Dynaudio speaker in the front left passenger door, undamaged!

I still have the ones from the drivers side door. I've put them up on ebay.com.au in Australia. They are ebay item id:
and you can get them cheap.. ( 30$ at the moment :-O )

I'm also selling lots of other E53 parts that weren't on the car when it was crashed, parts the new owner of the writeoff might find useful.
