How to Buy Used BMW Parts With Confidence?

What makes us different from many other automotive recyclers? We test all our used parts! Shop used parts here!

When a vehicle arrives for wrecking we don't just remove the parts ready for sale. We need to know if the part works or not before removing from the vehicle? At Peninsula BM nearly every car goes through a very detailed testing procedure.

When buying used BMW parts it's not good enough to know if the part came from a car that was "running". Many cars arrive "running" but after testing the engines they are found to be faulty with head gaskets/cracked cylinder heads being the main culprit! Imagine installing an engine to find it has a blown head gasket! Unfortunately without proper testing you could find yourself in this position.

On top of the testing, each vehicle has a secondary inspection before any parts are made available for sale. Doors, guards, bonnets are checked for dents. Bumpers and interior parts checked for wear and tear and the list goes on! 

Below is a test sheet that outlines what we check in the testing procedure.

I like when you said that when buying used BMW parts it’s not good enough to know if the part came from a car that was “running”. We need to replace our BMW wheels due to safety issues. Since the car is old it is not practical to buy brand new. Thank you for your tips on how and where to buy used factory BMW wheels.
