I have a set of light weight rims that I will put on the car eventually. Cosmetic items can wait. Mechanical items are my priority

I've got two cars right now and both my cars are for sale. The 328/5 and the m3. My thought process was to sell the 328 so that I can garage the M3 in the winter and buy a cheap winter beater. However, I've gotten 0 bites on the 328. It also goes the same for the M3.

Not that I don't like the car. I really haven't driven it at all since I'm a full time mechanical engineering student and the M3 stays at my parents house.The car has been parked until the last few days. I've done some work to it and have driven it again and have fallen in love with it all over again. Thus, I've been in a dilemma if I should just keep both cars. But from seeing my situation I'm probably going to store the M3 at my parents during winter and just keep the 328 as a winter car which I hate to do

If you had to sell your car would you sell it below market value?

I understand your thought process. For me, the extra cash would help expedite the process of me building the M3 but truth be told, I love seeing both e36s parked next to each other haha.
