Unhappy Interesting twist to selling my car... (parting C36)

It's called rain and sh**ty snow tires.(I'm not at all saying it wasn't my fault by blaming it on the tires, just trying to make myself feel slightly better about the ordeal because I do feel the outcome would have been slightly different on my all seasons ) Had't driven for over a month, got back home and was a little too overzealous getting on the throttle out of a turn. Basically I'm now parting out my C36.

So request away.

Back bumper is done, front bumper is done, aerial is done and the left rear quarter (panel, light, door, sideskirt, wheel+suspension). so don't ask for that. Everything from the right side is good, everything inside is good, and I haven't decided about what I'm doing with the drivetrain yet.

Also will sell complete as a parts car, though it will have to be towed

If you do part the motor and it's in good shape. I really need the intake cross over (part that says 3.6 on it)

Really sorry to hear about your car man. Few thinngs as crappy as seeing your ride wrecked.

No worries, been looking for a while too. Think it might just be time to get an aluminum one welded up. How is the climate control unit? Good display and buttons?

That was going to be my next big project until i decided to sell it.

Climate control is good. I have the older 95 style one though, with the separate buttons. But I actually also have a spare newer style too if you're interested

Sorry to hear about the wreck. But you know what, it's still just a car, (I'm sure you know). You can always find yourself another one if you really wanted, but that's probably not the case, is it :P

Most definitely. Time to focus on the C43.... or a W201 with a getrag, cossie LSD, and the 3.6 engine

I'm actually planning to switch that one over to the C43. The LCD has gone hazy on the 43's so you can't really see the station you're on. If you're really in need of a working unit I'd be willing to send that one to you for free.

Unfortunately the only parts that will switchover from the 36 to the 43 are the cupholder cover and the long strip over the dash :/ The doors are all different and longer (will fit all pre-facelift models) and the gearshift and centre console trim all have the square cutouts plus the centre console has the many individual cuts for the different climate buttons. These parts will only fit a 95 with the square type buttons

Thanks man, but mine is the same. LCD is all over so I can see what station or what CD is playin.

However if you're selling the cluster I'll buy that. I'm going to get the gauge faces and switch that over to mine. Let me know, thanks.

I'd be glad to send you the cluster. I don't know what year your's is though, so be warned the 95 ones are different than the 96 & 97's

Do you have the plastic headlight covers that are on the inside of the assembly (the ones you take off to change the bulbs)? I'm assuming you didn't drill into them for HIDs. I'm looking for a set so I can revert to stock halogens if need be.

Part # (in case pre/post-facelift models are different): 1305219079
