That's pretty steep, but the deal breaker is that I'd also lose the sales tax, which is over $1,000.

If any of you think there's really $4k + to be made from parting this car out, and are wiling to do the work, speak now, because they haven't cut the check yet.

And Labrat, you've pretty much got my dream car--a 330it!--if you've got a 5 speed. Maybe I should just move to Canada.

I don't think it's worth parting out at that cost.

And it's not a canadian thing. We never got the 330iT here. I had to make my own. Pretty simple actually, check out the thread in my sig.
