Wow.  I have one just like it!

Too far away to get for spares, although having purchased a new headlight assembly for this car, I can see the value of having a parts car.

I need the complete engine and cooling system in Alabama,  looks like you're in Virginia, wanna split it?  Would you want the rest if I got it to Alabama?

Just replied in the parts forum, $1200. It does have the post-facelift HIDs too, but needs lens polish.

Hey guys, busy weekend at Hallett, just getting back into the world. JustJim, yes, radiator and a left taillight and it can be driven as far as one dares. The right taillight is intact, just removed.

I'm moving and don't want to take this. Someone needs it.

FWIW, I talked to Nockenwelle about this one and contemplated driving it home to MI.
He said it's literally ONLY the radiator missing. In my experience you're gonna want a genuine BMW radiator; I tried another German brand off FCPEuro.com and it didn't fit by 1/8". And due to BMW being designed by zgermans it MUST fit perfectly. 
So the rad, some fluid changes, and tail lights (about $100 each off car-part.com) and it should drive. Tires are old tho
