    Spirits e36 323 loon-value my car please lads thread

    Deadly serious and dont be frightened of my reaction or worry about upsetting me as its an honest question and i need honest answers

    good bits

    1998 e36 323 saloon
    private plate
    2.5 straight six
    some history to verify mileage and various reciepts
    121 000 miles
    recent full service inc new oil,fuel filters and super plus plugs and full oil change using 10w/40 semi synthetic oil
    dave f kit
    genuine bbs staggered rc041/42s-7.5 fronts and 8.5 rears with 15 mm hubcentric front spacers and 6 mm rear spacers and 4 bbs centres inc extended bolts at the front and rears
    205 s and 215s tyres which were brand new less than 6 month ago-nankang ns2 fronts and crappy autogrip rears and still like new
    full 328 exhaust inc modded back box-sounds really nice but quiet at 70mph and no droning
    m3 front/rear bumpers
    std headlights delensed and fitted with 8k lightspeed ccfls and 8k 35 w hids on low beam and uprated full beam bulbs by osram
    ta technix coilovers lowered all the way at the front and custom rear adjuster mod at the rear-its very very low but still drives nice and smooth most of the time unless its really rough road
    front and rear droplinks recently replaced
    new brakes all round inc handbrake shoes
    chrome dashboard rings
    m3 gearknob
    heated electric full black sports leather seats-drivers bolster has mini hole in it the rest are really good condition
    2000w twin sub box-fli and 1000w pro mono amp by fusion
    jvc headunit inc usb
    rear arches rock solid and no bubbling at all
    front arches solid
    titan silver metallic in colour
    smooth bootbadge delete
    genuine m3 rear lights and oem ambers front and side-genuine not copies.
    drives very well and pulls very strong through the gears
    cat 1 meta alarm with remote locking


    not so good bits


    drivers front abs sensor needs replacing-20 quid part off ebay
    airbag light on-has been ever since i had the car and occupancy sensor i think
    offside front bush needs replacing-cheap enough
    bonnet has some stone chips along it relevant with age
    only one key and fob-again i had it since i bought it and never bothered me

    if im honest although its a very presentable car i would like to respray it to make mint as some parts as everyone knows were rattle canned so to make mint i would do this as im fussy and maybe replace the front m3 bumper with a replacement-75 new for a m3 copy one off ebay and colour change wouldnt cost much as they are pre primered or rattle can them for about 25 quid.

    it goes without saying how much work has gone into this car and how much i love it but this isnt a for sale ad its just easier to tell people whats on it to value it easier for this thread and very very little to finish

    Worth more in bits Andy. Shame to break it perhaps but you'd get more that way. For me to sell it quickly at my garage I'd bang it up for £895, maybe a bit more if the right person came along.

    The prob with a lot of E36s nowadays is as James has said its worth more in parts. Its a real shame as you cant put a price on the time and effort you have put into this build. The problem as well is unless a fellow forum member wants to buy it its just another modified car which a lot of people would stay clear of. I know from personal experience and looking at what Id get if I sold my E46 its a similar story. Good job we do these cars not to make money and just because we are crazy!

    Good luck if you do want to sell, but imo keep at it, its a nice car you got there and keep going with it.....

    You are always going to lose money modding a car Andy, just part of it.

    You can get standard 328i's for circa £1,000 so about £800 for yours I think. Obviously if you get 2 people who want a modded car on ebay its going to be more.

    Breaking it i think will be the best option also, really didnt want to do it to my loon but got far more money back than as a whole car. Is a shame to do that though.

    Before breaking consider that it takes time and you need to cut up or weigh in leftovers. Money in drubs and drabs is. I good it won't buy anything a d just gets wasted on takeaways.

    Also be nice if some one posted up that can show a profit on breaking. Most people won't be able too.

    £800 at best imo. E36s are so cheap atm it's not really worth selling for the money, just to clear the space. If I was you I'd hang onto it for the time being.

    Cant see it being worth much more in bits, it you sell it put some cheap standard alloys on and standard suspension, it'll still be worth the same but you'll get more for you BBS and coilovers sold seperately.
    If it is worth £800 but is worth much more to you (same for eveybody Andy) the cars you look at for the next car will be worth less too.
    Modding is a personal thing and a good way to loose money unless you can reverse it and sell the mods on afterwards while the car is back to standard.

    X2 Andy. I broke a 528 about 5 years ago, e28 manual, and the money was being spent as it came in. Was a RIGHT PITA as well wrapping stuff to send as well and i didnt make THAT much more tbh, would make more on an e28 now tho. Id have an account just for the money you got if you did go that route

    Agree there as well Andy, you could sell your suspension as well

    If you do get another car Andy how about something that holds its value better if its decent, like an e30/e34/ e28 etc then it wont hurt so much if you get rid? Keep all the standard stuff aside as well when you start modding
