Default Worth Fixing?

My 98 ti just busted its head gasket and my mechanic also found lower end damage. So I'd have to spend (this is Brooklyn) about 4-4.5k to rebuild the engine (my mechanic refuses to do swaps.)

So my question is, though I'd hate to do it, what is the car worth for parting (I'd want buyer to take entire car, as I have no place to store it)? Is this forum the place to advertise it or Craig's list or??

Fwiw, has brand new (1 month) tires, and Depo headlamps...

I bought my blown Ti for $600. Stock, no mods. I wouldn't expect much for yours since someone will have to invest quite a bit to get running. Maybe try finding a new mechanic to do swap? At least then you would get upgrade.

Your mechanic either wants to rape you or he doesn't want to work on your engine

1998 BMW ti with head-gasket challenged engine available for parting out or fixing. Turquoise green Active model, brand new Falken tires (< 400 miles), newish (1 yr) Depo HID headlamps and sidelamps, most body trim parts in good shape. Front end and brake jobs recently. Engine does run but probably better if towed (from Park Slope, Brooklyn). Asking 750 obo.

Car's in shop, don't have photos but a photo wouldn't add much to the description.
