    Hey Rob,

    It's great to see you back in the saddle and regaling us with deeds of daring-do in the automotive world.
    I have a '90 325iX and I'm in need of new/rebuilt front axles. I'm looking for a place that will rebuild them. Any idea of where I can get that done ?

    Thanks,
    Eric

    Eric, sorry, I haven't owned an E30 in 20 years (though, coming attractions, I just bought one). I'd check on rv3limited.com.

    I googled one of the part numbers, & a variety of links came up - didn't look at all links, but FCP Euro showed one, $851.70 + $50 core charge, fer instance.

    Bavauto.com - $977.95, including core charge - presumably if available to Bavauto, other Roundel advertisers will as well. If it's a dealer-only part, there are many dealers that offer a 15% parts discount to club members, although that's typically full retail price - it can pay to shop & compare.

    Ebay: (you takes yer chances, but, sometimes it's not a bad way to go)

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/REBUILT-BMW-325IX-AXLE-DRIVER-SIDE-FRONT-1988-1991-/271451625611?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&fits=Make:BMW|Model:325iX&hash=item3f33c7188b&vxp=mtr

    Online forums like R3v, etc. can be places to find additional feedback about ebay sellers & transactions besides just the ebay feedback ratings, plus sourcing parts. Certainly a logical place to check for anybody offering something as specific as rebuilding 'ix front axles.

    Otherwise, you might have to try to dig out a competent machinist/machine shop locally, to go the rebuild route. Might be worth asking that seller on ebay if they rebuild them or if they had somebody do it, & if so, who.
