I'm leaning towards not replacing the engine and selling the car. Overall the car is in great condition (except for the engine of course) and someone else may want to put an engine in or part it out. Details - 03 530i, non-sport, AT, 84K miles, gray with black interior.

Any idea how to get a price range on what it might be worth as is?
