05 m3 convertable

hi. i am new to the forum. i currently have an 05 m3 convertable sitting in my driveway. 33,xxx miles, 6 speed. it has unrepairable damage to the passenger side front of the frame, and the rear qurter has some serious damage aswell.
being that im a little new to the bmw thing, what would anybody reccomende i should do?

my thoughts are, does anybody have a shell, stripped for sale that i could build using my drivetrain, interior. etc?
do i need to find a convertable shell or would a hardtop shell work with the parts i have?
or finally, would i be better off parting out the entire car?
thank you.

The question should be can you register the car if you rebuid it. I would imagine that if you did register it it would be on a salvage title and therefore worthless in most states. Personally I would part the car out.

I would go with everyone's suggestion on parting it out. You will make plenty of money off it if you price items accordingly. Then go off and buy another E46 M3
