Don't worry you might not agree but people who actually know what they're talking about do. Besides that fact oil filter housing gasket and valve cover gasket have been replaced in the last two years along with the oil pan gasket and two front axles.

Once again this thread is not about the value of the car but rather what to do with the car as far as modifications and upgrades go.

I almost feel like selling it just to throw it in all these people's faces that don't understand the value.

So lets make a bet. If I sell it for $8,000 you give me $2,000. If I don't sell it for $8,000 Within one month I give you $2,000?

Seems like everybody doesn't feel like reading the post and also doesn't realize that I put the price High on the ad, that someone heater posted on here, to deter buyers, not entice them.

I think it might be a good idea to edit your first post and add that info.
There has been a spate of members selling their cars, then the new person turns around and tries to flip it for a profit.
Thus the strong reactions.
My apologies for my misreading of your intentions as well.

Although if you find a set of e90 sport wheels, they look even better and might be cheaper?
Enkeis ordered, with tires ready to go, arrive in 5 days.

My Ride: '03 325i Touring
I'm on my 3rd Touring, now, and paid top dollar for this one after weeks of searching for the right car. My first 2 were on the lower end of the price scale and needed some love. It was nice to find a car with documentation and all the right equipment, and I was willing to pay for it. Screw the haters, and if you sell it, good job. And if not, enjoy it!

Aaaaaaanndd. Its gone. I know which one it was though. Black on beige 5 speed something like 115k miles for $6995, yeah thats gone quick. I actually did consider buying it and flipping it.

You obviously havent read the thread by your statement any. Perhaps you should get an English tutor.

My thoughts exactly, I am perfectly happy either way.

Jay: I think you'd enjoy my build thread.
