You might get a better deal selling it to an LKQ, if you have one nearby, than wasting time and money on it. Its only a 325i.... nothing really desirable.

I got $400 for an e53 shell.

Or... part it out and sell the bits on eBay, FB marketplace, etc

LKQ won't buy vehicles without cats! So stupid, considering they'd well make their money off the motor, trans, interior & body parts!
Maybe depends on the area? Like I mentioned, I sold them a shell of an X5 for $400. You get less without cats and motor. That's here in TN. LKQ in other states probably vary.

However..... you can make more selling cats and engine on your own and selling the shell. I got $475 for m54 cats. Some place in TX. I can look it up if you need it.

$550 for the motor.....kid pulled it himself though. Made another $3k off various other bits.

Parting out is a pretty profitable return depending on circumstances.

Whichever way you go. Good luck. There's lots of info on this forum that can help you.
