Need advice ...
My '87 535i (daily driver) needs a new master cylinder, axles, and summer tires. The car has roughly 350k on the body/tranny/etc., and about 150k on the present motor. My mechanic suggests that I move on to a new vehicle. I agreed, though it took me a few days.
Anyway, my problem is that I'm not sure what to do with the car? I don't have time to part it out or anything.
Thanks in advance.

it all depends on how much you like the car
the master is fairly easy to replace, good axles can be bought used on the cheap or you can regrease them and put new boots on, tires are a no brainer.
Not sure of your own mechanical ability, but working on the car yourself is one of the most rewarding parts of owning the car.
If you have already made up your mind, you can post the car for sale on mye28.com with a detailed description of what has been done, what needs to be done, and the current condition of the car. If you arent a member you need to register there.
There is also the roadfly classifieds which are free as well.

If they have been open for awhile, I'd find myself a set of good used axles and have them rebooted before putting them on the car. The cost is mostly in the labor.
