Anyone who dumps their car can hardly avoid paperwork. Basically: At least a general operating permit (ABE) is required for almost all parts. Testing organizations such as TÜV or Dekra provide information on which documents are required, whether an entry (with parts certificate) is necessary in the vehicle documents or an ABE is sufficient. Important both for ABE and parts certificate: Your own vehicle must be listed in it, i.e. the part must be approved for the car. Entries in the vehicle documents cost around 30 to 50 euros, depending on the effort.
