Gonna be selling my e30 soon... questions/suggestions?

Ok, well this has been my car for the past 5 years, I still drive it every day and am looking to sell it as a parts car or as is, but I don't want to part it myself.

It is an 87 325is with about 270k on it

It has a new exhaust from the cat-back, and a new gas tank both within the past 3 years, it runs fine, as far as electrical goes, everything is pretty well shot windows don't work, roof doesn't.. The interior is black leather in excellent shape, just some fades, no tears or anything. I don't know what else to say if there's any questions let me know. What I'm trying to feel out is how much to ask for it?

Umm I'm not sure if they are "sport seats" they are black leather, kinda buckets..
There's some surface rust going on no holes in the body parts, there is one hole in the floor. umm there is a lot of minor things wrong with it. it will not be certifiable i'm sure but like i said it runs.

as far as selling on max, I've seen non-running e30's go for 800-1200 I'd be happy getting around a grand for the car. It does run fine like i said i drive it daily, but it won't be certifiable without some decent cash (or electrical work if you know what your are doing) put into it. MOST the problems are electrical.. but there are some others

Wow ! that is alot of dough for a rusted out parts car. Most junkyards pay up to $200 tops, usually less than $100. granted that may be a bit low.

why not ask $500 and you will sell it way faster!

good luck
