I am hemming and hawing about selling this car now that I have it back from the head replacement. I don't need to sell it, but a lift would serve me better than this car.  Love it, but don't need it and don't drive it. Would be willing to look at offers, including a 4 post lift + cash.

My 2¢. 

- Put a factory shift knob. 
- Remove the trunk bungee cords. 
- Clean the interior real well including trunk. 
- Remove the passenger fog light cover sticker. 
- Remove the grill badge. 
- See if you can clean up the rear of the passenger seat and the driver's side headrest. 
- Take pictures in a better setting. 
 

After doing all that, submit to BaT with a $10k reserve. Sell it for $14k.

I am so used to the ti dash, it is weird seeing m3 curvy air vents in there.  Cool car.

In 2 weeks he goes back into the vault. In april I'll put it on C&B if nothing happens before then.

Looks like a lot of fun. With a pro detailing and some really good pictures, I'd bet it would do pretty well on C&B or BaT.

I have seen this on both of the aforementioned forums. I sure wish this was in Truckee and had a BAR sticker.
