I have a 90 325 that the starter just went on (bought a raman one thats sitting in the passenger seat) but its got a few problems and i think im done with it.

1) while i was waiting for the starter to some in someone broke in and stole the stereo/all the speakers
2)while trying to get in the trunk they broke the latch
3)seat bracket is broken and has a built in gangster lean
4)was overheating (have the new t-stat)
5)something is rubbing in the passenger side wheel area once and awhile, i think its the dust shield.
6)the starter

should i try and sell it the way it is, if so whats it worth?

part it out?

or just donate it for the writeoff?:thumbup:

body isnt perfect, paint is faded, but the only rust on the car is 2-3 spots on the hood where the paint got chipped, but its only surface stuff

im just kinda fed up with it and think selling it outright will get me the same price as just donating it or selling it to a scrap yard

My driver seat actually has a "gangster lean" as well... Any idea what it would take to fix that? I'm pretty sure it was caused when a "big" relative of mine forced their way into the seat, if you know what I mean.

If its a non sport seat just go to the junkyard or craigslist. They are eveywhere. Or, get the sport seats. They make all the difference and fat people hate em.

The easy way out is to sell it. However, a few trips to the salvage yard will have you running again. I am sure most E 30's on this site started out needing help. If your motor and drive train are good, bite the bullet and put some money in it.

If you decide to part it out at all I'll take the bumpers and lower front valence, I've been looking for a little project for my car this summer.
