Parting vs selling repair title

Hey guys,

I have a '08 E92 328xi with 73000km on it and at one point 4 years ago I was planning on repairing and driving it. I am comfortable around salvage titles and have owned many in the past.

However over the last few years it has fallen to the bottom of my priorities list and now I just do not have the space and I wouldn't mind having some extra capital.

So the question now is, since I already own a car, I would be selling this one. Would it be more lucrative to just finish the repair? Roughly another 1400.00 (most of it has already been repaired) and sell it as a rebuilt title or just part it out to maximize my return.

I have zero knowledge parting out a vehicle and would like your opinions on what would be best; both financially and timely. What is the price of a repaired title car compared to a clean title? What is a e92 worth in parts?

The car in question is a 08 328xi coupe with 73000km
Has the orangesque interior.
It does not have the Navigtion System
As for everything else it seems fully loaded.

What do you think?

A couple of pictures would give us a better idea.
