    What an abrupt, sad ending,
    looks like a $6k+ car to me.

          What would a completely rebuilt engine cost? Maybe they could count the vehicle's mileage from when the engine was built. I.e. what's a pristine low-mileage 325is worth? North of 6k at least.

          I say "Where's your other camshaft?"

            I wouldn't have a problem paying up to $6500 for that after it was all said and done.
            Sorry for the loss.

              You've put a lot of work into this baby. I agree with what everyone else has been saying, at least $6k

                  Damn, so much work and then :( ... good luck with everything. A clean late model 325i is well above a 5k car. 6500 seems like a good price, especially when you consider a clean 318is will fetch 5000 easily in todays market

                    Yikes, didnt read the text so I was surprised to see the last picture. Serious bummer, especially considering all the work you put into it.

                    I think everyone is pretty spot on with 6k-6.5k.

                    Good luck with everything
