Post There's eBay (sometimes)

One of my first eBay purchases was a rear battery tray (under $20). I've seen some in Vegas salvage yards, and the tray part number (up to 9/87 from realoem.com) is 51 71 1 922 158.

Pulled one today from a 325i coupe (10/88 build month). Visible scuffing, but no cracks or rust, and the long threaded hold-down bolt threads easily into both holes.
