E30 325is going up for sale, should I sell the extras?

So I never drive it anymore (not since April) and considering selling my 1990 325is BrilliantRot on black sport heated leather, 5-speed, LSD, sunroof, skibag pass-through, 246,000 km roll on Enkei92 15x8 with Falken RT-615K, no rust, OK paint, all original panels, pulls strong.... and have a few extras for it.

- Hella projectors with all bulbs and pigtails.
- Maplight rear view mirror
- Exedy clutch kit

Question is should I install this stuff (or include it) to increase value or will it not really matter with E30 crowd?

Any other things you guys recommend buyers look for to increase sale price?

Sell anything non-OEM and bring it to the shiniest, cleanest OEM condition you can, that'll get you max bucks. Even a 24v swap doesn't increase E30 value.

only thing, providing they ARE nice wheels - not saying they aren't - are wheels that will increase the value. Unless you have uber rare parts on the car it won't really increase the value that much. Put the stock wheels back on and sell it factory or give the option with the wheels. Depends on "which" 24v swap is in it. M50 is nothing special. S motors are. and worth a few bucks more. But you'll have to wait for the right buyer.

I think I've had 14 bmw's in 4 years.

Sorry to hijack here. I have a Sach Kit with 3,000km on it for $120 if you want it. Bought it when I had my m50.
