Parts car gone

John Avis by | January 14, 2013 | E36

I am pleased to finally report that my parts car shell was picked up today and my carport is finally free again for me to park my 325i in.

I only got $70 for the shell which still had a couple of doors and part of the engine.

I finally sold the black leather seats which I thought would be really popular and easy to sell but ended up taking forever. The transmission eventually also sold and someone came from interstate and removed it themselves. I guess for $100 it was worth the long drive.

Profit so far is around $1750 with maybe $500 worth of parts left which might sell eventually.

About me

I am a bit of a 3 series fanatic, having owned a couple of E30s and a few E36s, plus a few parts cars. I like the combination of the compact size, good performance and handling, and that they are more sports sedan than an impractical and extrovert sports car. This blog is a place to share my experience and knowledge.
