Miles?

5 speed or no?

any upgrades(wheels and such)?

condition not just outside body but interior(leather cracked)?

Let us know more about the car. If it is in real good condition, then demand in most places will let you sell it for blue book or a little higher. The miles is the number one factor that people will look at, although our cars can go for the long haul.

Always ask for more, people are assuming that there will be some bargaining. So if you want to let it go for $8400 I'd say ask around $9000.

If the mileage is around 100k then i would say anywhere between 5-8 grand.. depending on how long you are willing to wait for someone who knows nothing about the market to bite at it.

I still have everything stock, 91,000miles Interior is great except the two front seats are showing wear on the outer edges. If you guys think I should hold out for blue book then I def. will. I'll put in in the paper for $9,200 but goes as low as $8,400 I think. Thanks!

I got my 1994 325is with 74k on it for 7500 a that was a little high IMO. Good Luck on selling it though.

I looked up Blue Book for your car

http://www.kbb.com/kb/ki.dll/kw.kc.ur?kbb....ies&11;BM;AS&&&

If that link doesn't work. YOu have to make sure you are clicking private party value. It shows blue book closer to $7000, for a stock 325is with 91,0000 miles in good condition, not excellent(that would require perfect interior). Excellent is $7700. This is in my zip code but i don't think that makes a big difference.

www.kbb.com = Kelley Blue Book
