Car Selling Advice
Hello all,

It's been quite some time since I've been on these forums, and I am pleased to be back.

I've owned a 1994 325is for many years, and I can no longer afford to maintain it, much less get it repaired after a recent accident. I have had a few aftermarket mods installed on it, namely a Bilstein sport suspension kit that was installed approximately 4 years ago. The car itself is in such bad shape that I just need to sell it and cut my losses. So my question is this:

what would be the easiest way to sell this car for the most amount of money? The average person will take one look at it and think it's a piece of junk, however I know there are some very nice aftermarket parts on it that many would like to have. If I could get rid of it for $500 I would be a happy camper. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Aftermarket mods will get you the most money when sold seperatley. If the car is "junk" as you say thats all people will see. If you want to get the most money out of the car I suggest parting it out.

I have done this before with a car that got t-boned. I bought the wreck because it was the only one in Canada that matched the color of mine and needed a few things. The rest I have been selling. It can be a long and slow process, but the net profit will be more then just selling the car as is now. Stuff like OBC, steering wheel, guage clusters, climate control modules and various interior trim pieces are all in demand.
