Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

What is wrong with the car that makes it so you can't sell it? Just no interest? Usually at the right price someone will buy it unless there are major problems... Mileage and age will reduce it's value of course. What province are you in?

In terms of parting out, you may or may not recoup more $$ from the car. Where you have a new 9-5, many parts will carry over. Eg the DIC may be significant miles, but if it is still working, I would keep it as a spare.

Things like lights are not going to be useful on your new one, but can be useful to sell and are easy to remove. But I find as the cars reach a certain age, you basically need to sell parts pretty cheaply or buyers have no interest. Eg, would you repair your 2005 if it was in a fender bender at this point (let's say bent fender headlight and signal lights)? Well, many would just drop the car. If the parts were cheap enough, some might DIY the repair and keep going where everything is bolt on.

Depending on the age of struts etc, the time to remove vs the cost recovery may be low, even for konis... would you reuse them? Maybe worth pulling, but labour=parts for that job...

Lots of factors in this!
