Hey guys,

Expecting a baby this summer so I'm thinking about selling or trading this car..
I'm a complete car noob but have sunk a bit of money into this car over the 2 years or so..

Not sure what it's worth but probably not worth what i paid lol

need to check the odom... for i think it's between 150-160K or was is 250-260K
springs have been changed to vogtlands
Gas tank has been replaced
minimal rust, no new spots noticed in 2 years, car has been reprayed (not by me)
seats are in good shape ( no rips just wear and tear and the shocks don't work)
due for etest this year (not sure if it'll pass)
has a new battery that i purchased last year
car starts when i need it to and goes where i want it to... only gets driven in the summer but not a lot at all.. probably less then 6K over the last two years
car is currently stored in oakville
soft top is usable, but has holes, and rear window is foggy (the top will protect you from a random rainstorm to a point)
car is standard was swapped from auto
leaks a little oil
includes a hardtop but the rear window is broken in the garage last year. (haven't looked at replacing it)
ac doesn't work
dashboard lights are out

things that were done supposedly..
i can t vouch for these things but i met a car from bimmersport named rob and this was his car.
supposedly everything has been maintained on it... (the engine was rebuilt, timing belt done etc..etc..)
i don't know enough about cars so no clue just trying to be as honest as i can.

i think that's all i know...

was hoping to keep this car till i turned into an old man but just not practical with a baby coming and a single garage..

looking to trade it for an automatic "something" maybe a newer 4 door 3 series?

I really don't want to sell it.. kinda falling in love with the e30 and just want to keep it forever lol but figured i'd need to find a garage to store it in for the next 5-10 years before i had a chance to drive it again

FYI to others. I was commenting in another thread about an E30 I went to see and was a bit of a mess. It wasn't this one. I have not seen this car yet.
