Swap 95 325ti w/93tu.... Worth?

Multiple owner NO accident, last one did swap and it currently rocks. Body about 120 and engine less than 250 total .....obd1, lowered on new triangle 225 40 18, HR susp, drilled rotors f/b, custom exhaust, m3 control arms etc front end new, black w original body panels/vin# MINIMAL surface rust, LSD, sunroof, interior crappy but short shift kit and ICE connected to my iPhone make up for it....fogs n Blacked out angel eyes HID's
Pix to come but based on the above, what can I realistically ask for? Or should I part it out? Expert opinions appreciated!!!! Thank you....

Ok was rushed ..... Let me clarify please.

Details of this obd1 1995 318ti are as follows;
1 after multiple owners, the final owner did a swap with a 93 2.5tu.

2 the engine had around 180km and did about another 60km for a total of about 250km. Still pulls hard with no issues to redline all day. Body has less than 200km with original vin#'s on every body panel.....original paint and light surface rust.

3 Lowered on hr susp. With drilled rotors f/r.

4 entire front end, control arms etc NEW along with engine brace

5 18" rims that actually look good with new 225 40 18 triangle tires

6 cheap but nice looking hid's, nice shift kit, LSD, exhaust, nice deck with remote and sunroof round off the good shit

Bad is need for a paint job, rash on every wheel (but straight), interior needs a wash n tlc, stock steering wheel and seats needs to be swapped to sport

Question.....what would a car like this go for with minimal needs?

Would it be better to just part this out?

I bought it with intention of using all parts for my e30 but then decided 5lug is just not worth it especially with all the goddamn compromises ....S52 and call it a day. The closer you stay to original the less drama. Any thoughts appreciated. Thanks

news flash....car search revealed car at 286 in 2010 then transplant took place thereafter = so 310ish on body then rebuilt to current spec ..... (i will start a more organized thread in for sale section soon as i know what it will cost to tidy it up for emissions)

first cranking and idle for warm up - put on earphones, it will give u a similar 'feeling'.......

the second link is getting 'out of the way' with a brief 7k wail.........(if you pay attention, you will notice a silver passat towards the end that was trying to cockblock my 'progress'...... he got a lil shook up and 'hurt')

uploads taking too long....

FOLKS....need suggestion on pricing or parting .....pulls harder than m3 with simple intake and butchered exhaust (theres more cement on the 2000 weld spots than you can shake a stick at...)

more to come enjoy for now

That should be in the airbox, but you probably have a Cone air filter or something which is why it doesn't have a proper home anymore.
