Possibly selling up - Is the price right?

So after only owning my E91 320d since October, I am considering selling up.

TBH, I am not seeing the benefit of the diesel at all, as I am only doing short trips to work and back and end up sat in traffic most of the time. I'm also missing having a hot hatch, so thinking of moving to a Mini Cooper S (R53).




Sparkling Graphite
Automatic
12 months MOT
3 prev owners
Full service history (although not all by BMW)
Good all round condition (few marks on rear bumper)
Panoramic roof
LCI alcantara interior
Swirl flaps deleted

Now here is the elephant in the room



To be fair, the car drives straight and true. No strange knocks or bangs. No oil or water leaks. You really wouldn't think it had done those miles.

If I was to ask 2,650.00, do you think this would be reasonable?

Although she looks a tidy clean car with that mileage you need to do some research on piston heads and auto trader etc... There are some 320D touring with 100,000 miles less going for that money, but its only worth what some one is prepared to pay, get ready to be knocked down on price. Good luck with the sale...

True. But I can't see a single sport 320d under 2500 though. They all seem to be SE spec. Not that I suppose that matters to someone buying a 232k car ha ha

I will probably end up keeping it and running it for longer

I'd recommend parting out, you'd make more money that way, all depends on whether you can be bothered with the hassle of it all.

Heard the early 1's were pretty bad.

Under 5k Budget my picks are,

Honda Civic Type R,
BMW 330i Manual E46,
Mazda 3 MPS,

The most reliable has to be the Honda Civic Type R in my opinion.
