    why dont u just sell as a whole car rather than break it? surely someone will snap it up as a whole car, if u break it u might not sell all parts etc id try selling as full car and see what interest u get 1st and then if none break it!

    With Dave on this, break it. Sum of all parts are greater than anything you'd get as a single piece sale.

    If you are in no rush for the money and have the time/knowledge to break it then i would do so, you will get more money for it but will obviously take a bit of time.

    I'd put it back on the road if I were you or sell her as a runner, having seen her in the flesh she's a lovely mk3.

    If, however you choose to break her I've got my eye on a few bits.....
