Sadly need to sell my car.....

to spare you all the details.....would it be best for me to raise the car back up and put on the stock rims and tires?

I have a 325i with a buyout of $30,000. Only has 4800 miles and its a 3 year lease. The car looks really nice lowered with my 19" but will i lose possible buyers cuz of this?

If you leave the car with the wheels and suspension, you will only target a small market of people who only appeal to a car with those modifications.

If you put all the original parts back on, you will target a larger market who are interested in the car you have to sell.

I believe people will assume that modified car reflects on the driving history of the owner.

always easier to sell a stock car. plus you won't lose as much money selling the aftermarket stuff separately.

take all of them off. If this was like a supra or something, slight mods are actually expected by the buyers.

90% of the bmw 3 series buyers are probably just plain regular drivers unlike enthusiasts like us. It is better to sell the car as stock. Don't tell them you modded it previously either.

Stock will sell better, and you will get more money by selling the wheels separately. Best of luck, and hope you're back in the saddle soon!

Agreed, put back all the stock parts prior to sale. I hope you still have the original parts?
