What are these parts worth?

I've got some e39 left overs are am looking for advice on how to price them for craigslist and this forum. I don't want to overprice as that just eastes everyone's tieme. But I wasn't planning on giving them away free either. Thanks in advance.

2) OEM aero front lip and rear touring spoiler. Also new and never installed.

3) tan heated memory sport option seats w elec thigh adjust. Cosmetically 9/10, rlectrechanically 10/10.

4) set of four winter rime/tires. OEM style 81 wheels (9.5/10 cosmetically) w Blizzak LM-25's at about 9/32nds tread depth.

5) new, never on the ground style 32 spare (17x8)

I'd be interested in the front lip spoiler if it's for the stock bumper.

Those will fetch a pretty penny. $500-600 for the pair (they MSRP at $900 each from BMW but you would have to be mentally disabled to pay that much)

Thanks very much, Mr. FullThrottle.
Those seem like fair prices to me. I just saw the dealer price for a single wheel with snow tire, $600!! That's just nuts.
I'll update my ads (I was asking too much for the wheels).
I'd do the seat for $400

I should have noted that I posted San Diego prices, where we have no use for winter/beater wheels.... you may get more $$ being that you're in Boston, as demand would be higher...

Also, i'd fluff the prices up so you have room for negotiation.

Good luck with sale, man!

Just fyi if you really did want to ship it to someone you can ship it through Greyhound. The downside is you have to take it to your closest greyhound bus station and the buyer has to pick it from from their local greyhound station. The upside is it is way cheaper than any other carrier for large parts liker bumpers unless you have a discount account with Fedex or UPS. I know this from when I was trying to sell my front and rear bumpers. The deal to ship them via greyhound fell through for other reasons and I ended up selling them locally, but the concept is still sound. Just letting you know that option is out there.

Also just fyi when I sold some other items like fender liners and bellypan/undertray the Post Office was surprisingly 1/2 - 1/3 cheaper than FedEx or UPS even with the post office surcharges for the size of the item. The items I sold were big, but very light so it may not apply to your items. Just a head's up to check the post office too as I was shocked at how much UPS and FedEx were charging versus the post office.

And Fyi those lights are definitely worth the $500-$600 fullthrottle quoted you. If you really want to get $600 or more throwing them up on ebay might do the trick.

Yes, post office is cheaper but the tracking system is pretty much obsolete, and there is no insurance with USPS (even though i've never had a problem with them anyways).

UPS has a fancy tracking system, and $100 included insurance unless you want more.

Also, USPS is quite fast... if the package arrives to the destination city faster than expected, they will deliver before the expected delivery date..... if UPS finds themselves in the same situation, they will HOLD ON to the package until the delivery date (they will NOT deliver early - not even 1 day early!)

Wait, $400 for tan sport seats in excellent condition? That's a damn bargain, if I had a tan interior I'd jump on that. I think you could go a good deal higher.
