Parting Out My Car

Since trying to sell a car with a cracked head gasket is impossible without giving it away, I've decided to go the parting-out route.

Sorry to hear about this. That is WAY too nice of a car to be parted out. We'll miss your posts!

It's a tough market for a roller. Sad to see this one go after all the work you did on it. You may want to list some specific items - you have some nice ones.
Trunk lid, tails, wind deflectors, etc. Pull the DME/Immobilizer box/key fob and sell it as a set ~$500 (The ignition tumbler is pretty easy to remove and include as well). wheels and tires may be easy to get a good price locally.

Sorry to see it go. Definitely showed your passion for the brand.

Sun visors available?
