I guess it can't hurt to give it a shot. Here's a link to the sale thread: https://www.northamericanmotoring.co...condition.html

Your best bet is probably local. You did a nice job on a major over haul but this is still a salvage title with 51K. Try auction.

Most fixers and some body shops go that way.

Good Luck.

Are the 19's too big? I'm getting the tires mounted tomorrow.

You lost me with the 19 inch wheels. I am not a fan of oversized wheels. The forum seems to back my opinion with several comment preferring the handling of MINIs with smaller wheels.

Save the stock wheels to give the buyer an option.

They look great on the BMW.

You have no idea how much I want to take the MINI off your hands (with the stock wheels).

Thanks for the heads up. I just signed up, but the odds and car popularity are not in my favor.
