I am looking for a good AC console....the type with the vents and circular dials.

I have one that is apart but everthing is there except for the screws to hold it together (nothing special). This one is out of a 1980 but it only has one control for the A/C (I have seen them with two). The other thing next to it is the cig lighter. I am cleaning out my garage of 320is parts and will send it to you for the cost of shipping. It is in very good condition except for one of the mounting screw locations that holds the center section to the sides (part of the center section. You cannot see it with the console together and the screw still holds. send me a PM with your shipping information and I can get it out Saturday or Monday.

Trick Question! Every knows that there are no good AC consols. Non-AC is the nicest!

Sorry, when 'they' took my (non-working) radio, they ripped out the entire front consol w/ it... I can give you the side peices, though. Not in fabulous condidtion, butworking and no obvious tears. If interested, I'll try to get pictures. It would cost you $00.00 + shipping.

Have you tried junkyards or other forums? No luck on ebay, either?

I got a 318i parts car. Show me exactly what you want and I might be able to help you out. Its in Australia and therefor RHD, but depending on what you want, it may not matter...

I need that rectangular panel that is the main AC control in the center of the dash....right over the center console that holds the radio.

There are two types: The pre-facelift with virtical levers to control the AC. The post-facelift with the circular controls and two moving vents.

I need the post-facelift with the vents and the circular controls.

I would like it to be in nice condition. I have a broken one, but this is such a prominent piece that it can make an otherwise nice dash look bad.

There are none in postage is something I will have to deal with.

I have looked on,, and to no avail.

US spec 320's turn up at the local Pick&Pull yard pretty freqently - if my timing's good, sometimes I can get to 'em before a gorilla tears into the dash with a big screwdriver. Unfortunately, the thin top flange on that panel (the area with the tiny screw holes) is usually cracked or broken on even the cleanest ones.

If that's not a problem, I should be able to get one for you - cost will probably be $10 or less, as P&P charges very little for plastic trim pieces.

I am looking for a really good one. I have one that is broken on the top...but otherwise pretty good.

I should be back at P&P in a couple of days - if there are any panels with zero damage, I'll pull one for you.......
