Default A "what's it worth" thread

All,
I've owned by M for over 14 years and never thought it would go to another owner. That being said, based on current life events, it may have to go. Sooner rather then later.
Yes I know it would make more money to part out but may not have that chance.
Looking for input as to what it is worth.

Mike

You wouldn't just make more money parting it out, you'd make A LOT more. It's still a high mileage, pre lci, tiag car with an accodent and rebuilt motor. And it'll be difficult for the buyer to put their stamp on it as it's so modded. (I like the mods, just being honest).

100% agreed. The rebuild 8000 miles ago doesn't inspire confidence, and the mileage/year/color/accident all hurt value a bunch. On the flip side, you have a bunch of pricey parts on there you could get a bunch of money parting out.

I bet you'd pull in double parting it out what you'd get selling it whole.

Also, don't sell

What about a completely rebuilt engine that was properly broken in doesn’t inspire confidence?

The higher valued examples are the least touched. That goes for mods and major maintenance that shouldn't have needed to be done. Regular scheduled maintenance is valued, of course.
