The great debate... to sell or not to sell

Just finished replacing my water pump and thermostat this past weekend... wasn't "horrible" but took a tad longer than I hoped. Parts cost me $420, OEM.

As I was down there I noticed what appears to be a small oil leak. I believe it's either the oil pan gasket or the oil filter housing gasket. I "think" it's the oil filter housing gasket as it's coming from up top and I can see it "seeping" from the gasket area.

I'm "fairly" confident (about 85%) that there are no cracks or anything broken. The car has done me good these past years... 2006 325i with 117k on the clock.

How long has some folks here run their 2006's? Any luck pushing into the 200k range? I'm super tempted, but for some reason lately have gotten the little itch to sell and move on.

Just curious on other folks experiences on the wonderful great debate on selling or keeping/maintaining.
