    Hi I'm in two minds on what to do with this s14a wether to break it or sell it as a car but not sure what's it's worth?? Cars got lots of paperwork with it, service history etc. 123,000 miles

    Mods:
    hsd coilovers
    Front mount intercooler
    Tubular manifold
    3" down pipe & complete exhaust system
    Aliminium radiator
    Hydro with braided lines
    Polybush rear subframe
    Vertex front bumper with crack in bottom


    Recent work carried out:
    all new brake callipers

    Bad bits:It's been stood fo 6 months
    Lacquer peel on the roof
    Front wings have started rusting
    Rear arches also just starting to rust but are solid It's quite rusty underneath as shown in photos

    Drives really well just not sure weather it's worth spending a lot of money on repairing the rusty bits so not sure weather to brake or sell Will upload photos in shortly

    From experience unless youve broken a car for parts before and you have a job: dont bother!

    It used to be a good way of making a few extra quid than youd get for selling it as a whole

    Nowadays with every fucking moron in the world online it is one of the most stressful experiences in the world!

    For every ten times someone says they will buy something, youll get one genuine buyer. People want parts for literally nothing and expect them helicopter lifted to their house.

    Then you need to have somewhere to store the parts, a shit load of packaging, time off work to wait for couriers that may or may not show up, and end up left with loads of bits no one wants


    Stick pictures up and a price you have in mind for the whole car. Then expect to be offered far less than your asking!

    So true!!! the first time I broke a car it seemed alright, but the next 2 seemed a pain and still have a whole shelve of leftovers (non of them I removed the engine/gearbox fully...) get 10 people asking about the item, asking detailed pictures and then the next day say- oh sorry I reconsidered.... (still got M sport side skirts wrapped ready to ship :D as the buyer just didn't answer at the last moment)
