Sadly these E12's are not fetching very much especially when you compare them to other classic BMW's like the E9's and 2002's nowadays. E3's are also starting to turn around slowly as long as the rust bug hasn't started transforming them.

This reply is not intended to offend you in any way, just offering you suggestions to help you obtain more than what you've already been offered.

Good luck.
You're absolutely right. We just don't have the time right now. Busy setting up some better air compressor piping and working on some other cars. If it comes to it, then yes we will have to do so. 5 years from now I predict these E12s will be turning around similar to the way the E3s are starting to now. I'm not expecting someone to hand us $5000 for the car as it sits, but just a reasonable offer.
