Default What to do with stock parts no longer needed?

Thanks to a cab driver hitting my 2012 528i I was afforded a great opportunity to upgrade and farkle my car. I ended up doing a full Umnitza body kit (front bumper cover, both side fenders, both side skirts, and rear bumper cover). I also threw a Remus exhaust on her since she had to go up on the lift anyway.

That leads me to my question. I have a front bumper cover, one side fender, both side skirts, rear bumper cover, and stock muffler and do not know what to do with them.

Do you think there is a market for these used body pieces? Same question for the muffler? Or do you think it isn't worth my time and I should just throw it all away?

A good place to start, Chris, is our very own classified section: Private Member Classifieds - 5Series.net - Forums

It's helpful if you provide pictures to accompany your listing and come up with a price, because they're gonna ask! Everything is negotiable, so expect that too.

I had a similar dilemma with my E60 when I replaced everything with the M Technic parts. I was eventually able to sell the front and rear bumpers, but ended up trashing the rocker covers as there was no interest in them. You can definitely sell them, but there isn't a huge market for this stuff. I ended up selling my front bumper for $75 and agreed to drive about 50 miles to meet the buyer halfway. I sold the rear bumper for roughly the same, and again agreed to meet the buyer halfway just to get rid of this stuff. Thankfully I have a company car with fuel that is paid for, so I didn't have to factor fuel costs into the sale. You could also try selling your stuff to a local body shop that does a lot of BMWs, just don't expect to get much out of it.
