You can sell the whole car on this forum David - but I am afraid that due to our sponsors being an Audi Breaker specialising in A8's you will not be able to break the car via this forum (or discuss it for obvious reasons!)
- hope you understand and good luck with the sale if you sell.

I would suggest you're likely to see a better return putting the original wheels back on and selling the 20s separately since they are pretty popular - they usually sell in hours on here, depending on condition, since some of our esteemed members seem to hoard them

The car itself will take a bit longer to sell since the market for such things is quite specialist now, but its definitely worth trying to sell it complete before taking it apart. Assuming you've not done it before, breaking a car is rarely worth it unless you have a load of space to store everything and plenty of time to hang on to things until someone needs them. If I buy something to break its because it has something of specific value that I want - engine, gearbox, etc. I'll usually remove said thing and a few other large useful chunks and then bin the rest because I just can't be bothered taking every little thing, photographing it, listing it on ebay, waiting for someone to send me a dismally low offer, packing it up, posting it, etc. Not worth it for ad-hoc stuff. If its got a nice tidy body and runs well someone will have it as a luxury runabout

I can't think who you might mean And I agree with this advice - though of course, I wouldn't personally be interested in having this set of 20s
