    I'm going to get rid of my 1991 325i convertible fairly soon.
    ~130K miles

    Off the top of my head...

    The good
    • replaced timing belt 10K ago
    • replaced water pump less than 10K
    • 1/2 tank of gas
    The bad
    • front suspension shakes in the winter
    • will need pads/rotors soon
    • exhaust getting loud
    • right speaker doesn't work
    • windows intermittent
    • leaking a little oil (smelly oil fumes)
    • top leaks a little
    The ugly
    • can't see out of the rear window and cracked
    • rust
    • seats torn
    • dash cracked
    • paint fading
    It's going to sit in my driveway until I decide what to do.
    Cut my loses and just donate it or try to get some money for it?
    Last thing I want is a bunch of tire kickers.

    Donate it and get a tax credit on it and they come get it for you!

    I did that with my old MX6. No hassle. Just wondering if there is a market for what I have.
    It's not like I'd get much money. Just hate seeing it go to waste.
    Looking at another hatchback on Saturday.

    I don't suppose you have a period correct radio do you? I'm restoring mine and so fart have had to buy 3 units to get one that actually plays but still have a display that's not fully functional.
