What should I do with my 97 M3
Sorry for the duplicate.. I put the original posting under 1998+ by mistake.
I hope I can get some generic advice.
My 1997 BMW M3 has approx. 140,000 Miles (yes miles, I bought the car in the US).
I made a huge error several years ago storing my car when I was out of the country. As such, the car is rusting away and body-wise is in bad shape.
The engine and the transmission are rock solid.
Does anyone know how much it would cost to transfer the engine to a new car? I've seen '97 BMW 328 advertized on auto trader for about 3 grand. What car models would I be restricted to if I went this route?
The 2nd alternative is to sell the car. What kind of a market is there for the engine/transmission and any estimates on what it may be worth?
