Throw it on the net for less than book value.
Make it worth It to someone who wants a project.
That's my plan.

If he has to ask whether to donate or sell chances are he is not in need of money so I say donate and let some needy orphan enjoy their first BMW 330ci that they would not have otherwised obtained.

Here's my thing with donating a BMW. Whoever receives it probably wouldn't be able to maintain it. And it wouldn't be long before it leaves them stranded. Or cost them more than they can afford to put it back on the road.
So in the end I think donating a bmw isnt really gonna help whoever gets it.

I would rather send it to the crusher than to give it to some punk who doesn't deserve it.

Nobody should be getting free stuff, capitalism doesn't not reward laziness.

Find a high school kid and say "BMW"

Or donate it to Good Will or Salvation Army and get a good tax write-off.

I just realized the OP title is the same as an 18 year old Halle Berry or Hiedi Klum
saying how do I get rid of this virginity?


Reminds me of the Chris Rock bit where he says "Drug Dealers dont sell Drugs! Drugs Sell themselves! You never hear a crack dealer saying 'how am I going to get rid of all this crack?'"
