Just wanted to hear some thoughts on this. I have a '97 M3 Sedan, which I haven't really been driving in the past few years (especially since an M Roadster was added to the family last year
) and this year I've decided it's not too wise to still keep it and decided it's REALLY, REALLY time to sell it asap.
However, I took it out of storage a few weeks ago and ...
the head gasket didn't make it. It's sitting right now at the shop awaiting a decision whether to fix or not.
The car comes with a binder full of receipts and maintenance ($25-30K worth.. I'd have to check) and it's in incredible condition. It would be a good opportunity for someone to drop in an S54 or if they wanna do the work themselves and mod it up, but I also don't want to get ripped off on the car as is.
Here's the feeler thread from last year for pics, some of you might have seen it around: http://www.maxbimmer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=158117
So.. any thoughts between fixing and selling, or selling as is? there's also the option of dropping a new engine in for about the same money as fixing it (as per the quotes received) but I think the resale value would take a hit vs fixing it.
