For the record, the mountain of parts has shrunk substantially.

Though somehow, my garage is still at max capacity.

So that mtn of parts can now be called mods?

Also, you're hoarding something else again. -________-

Yes, by breaking them up into small pieces. I don't see how that applies.

Definitly want to buy it off you then.

Honestly this might be your best bet. Then after a few years you can still get another car and the 330i has more value to it. How soon after you get the m3 sedan would you be thinking of getting another car?
I will keep you in mind if I don't do the swap.

yeah, we were supposed to hear this week, now I am hearing the 16th or 17th. it is just a fiasco.

The price would definitely go up after the s54 swap

I would def keep it for several years if I did the swap..... Who knows...I have had the car for 8 years....I am getting the itch for something different.
