540I sale price????

I have a 1997 540I that I would like to sell but Im not sure what a descent price it for it would be. It has the sport package upgrade, 6 speed manual tranny, rims, new tires, sunroof, silver, alpine complete sound system, power everything, grey leather interior with no rips, paint is in good condition, couple of dings, 141000 miles, all maintanance from all previous owners logged, and nothing wrong with it. I am moving to NY and want to buy a truck because I am going to be a baseball coach up there so I dont want to ruin a nice car taking guys around in it. What would you guys recommend asking on it? The pic on my profile is the pic of the car. Just wondering... And if your looking to buy one, shoot me an offer!

your asking price depends on where you live. scan your local area and see what a model with your miles and condition would be going for

Depending on condition and service history etc, If its really good I would start at 7500 and drop to around 7200, but how far you drop is up to you.

maintanance and vehicle are extremely clean... Everything to the replacement of a bolt has been listed on the vehicle... Nothing is wrong with the vehicle whatsoever. Maybe I'll start it out at $7200.00 and drop as the weeks pass... Thanks for the input.
