Subject: How to price 2014 BMW X3 3.5i with major issues
I am the sad owner of a 2014 BMW X3 3.5i with 69k miles. I am sad because I leant this beautiful machine to my ex-wife who did not care for the vehicle. I should refrain from sharing how I really feel as per my cardiologist and therapist. The car is in need of major repairs and I don’t have the time or the desire to deal with it. I would prefer to just sell it for as much as I can get and save myself the headache. I am not looking to screw the buyer and I am being as transparent as possible. My request of the sub is how can I price this fairly?
2014 BMW X3 3.5i 69k miles Blue exterior Beige leather interior - Interior is well cared for
What it needs: Engine rebuild - Car now has an oil leak and the engine has a serious knock. Runs great and no noticeable loss of power, but knocks for the first few seconds when starting the engine after it sat for an hour. Knock is also noticeable at high rpms (> 3k).
Brakes - I am assuming it needs a complete rebuild on all 4 wheels. The brakes just don’t work. She described it as it went from a squeak, to a grinding, to a horrible mental grinding sound. From the looks of it the pads were worn down and she just keep going and going like the Energizer bunny from hell.
Front hood - dented and scratched by the BMW emblem
Rear tailgate - backed into something, It needs a new gate, but the passenger light on the tailgate can be reused. The drivers can not.
In doing my research, it looks like a price range of $28k - $30k would be fair. I am at a complete loss for how to price it with the damage. I am unsure where I would even list this. Craigslist?
I need to part ways with it, but want to try to recoup something from it.
Can anyone offer any advice?

Saw this on a sweet e46 M3 convertible today and I am not sure I agree. This could be an ‘06 and I don’t see how a 16 year old car can be considered an elder. Personally I think the whole run needs to be 25 years or older. Im curious where others might draw the line.

Bought this car (11k miles, CPO) 2 weeks ago, coming from a 21 Mustang GT. I got lots of hate in this sub initially when I asked about the purchase but man I am in love with this car. Top down driving just brings a different kind of joy to everyday driving. And can I say the B58 with the ZF8HP is just MINT!

Just recently bought this beauty. Lowered on ST coils. Stock exhaust already burbles, will probably get catless downpipes. Roof and mirrors wrapped black. Carbon fibre front and rear lip. Lots of M3 cosmetic parts and M badges inside door jams, on steering wheel, etc are beautiful. Next up: gun metal rims (previous owner kept those) and possibly swap to blue calipers. Any other upgrade suggestions? And yes, I already have a new carbon fibre front lip as this one is cracked.

Subject: o2 Sensor blown out of chargepipe
submitted by /u/suterele
Seems i’ve blown the o2 sensor right out of my chargepipe on EWG N55. Car fell on it’s face right as I shifted on a 5k rpm pull and heard a woosh sound afterwards followed by a drivetrain malfunction. Car shifts normally with little no boost but does not shift well under boost. I plan to fix ASAP, but I do need to get to work and back (about 10 mile round trip). What are the dangers/consequences of driving while waiting for the new chargepipe to come in?
Subject: How much do you think it’s worth? 18k mile, smg to 6 speed.
Subject: Oh no… has this happen to you?

Subject: M340i stuck in production stage for weeks. Is this normal? How long did it take your car to go through this process? Thanks for sharing your insights.
