Post subject: Need help pricing my 8 series

I need some help from all of you guys: When I picked up my 850ci I knew I was getting it so I could sell it. It really wasn't my intention to keep it (I like my old e30 more). My question is, What should I list the car for? Here's the car's info:

1991, V12 automatic, 180,000 miles (engine and tranny were rebuilt by BMW by BMW @ 170K). Full leather and full power options (All "the Works" for an 8 series).

Problems:
*Check Engine light turns on and off at random, no change in how the car drives, smells, or sounds when it happens.
*Vehicle information (18 button) LCD display need to be replaced
*Very small hole on the leather on driver seat
*Rearview mirror needs to be replaced
*Slight front passenger fender damage (Probably be easier to replace the fender)
*There's a bump in the hood that looks like someone left a tool on the engine and closed the hood. Probably needs a new hood
*Small crack in the front bumper cover next to the kidney bean vents (Glue will clean it up
*Needs a paint treatment and a good buff. I don't think it needs a re-paint.

Most of these things are simply cosmetic issues that I could fix in a day if I had the money. I've seen this model sell between 5K (damn near junk yard shape) to 30K mint. I can post pics of the damage if needed. I'm trying to sell within the next 8 days. What do you guys think?

update. I have to re-install the 6 dis changer too. All the original owner's manuals and stuff is there including the 3 CD's.

Considering it sat on CL for a couple weeks at $4500, I'd say $3,000.

No one wants a ragged out 8-series, especially the V12.

You're thinking of a different car. The lowest price this one got too was $6,800. One of the things that held up that sale was a title issue. I worked that issue out. It's now a clean AZ title. The dude originally posted it for 8k

Oh, that's right. I'm stupid. I remember the listings.

I still say 3k and your description makes it sound ragged out.

you would likely be able to get a better price for it if you took care of a few of the minor issues, such as the paint buffing and the CEL. these items will turn off most potential buyers, and cause you to lose potential $$$ in the sale.
