Rust and a busted transmission is hardly a score.

Hey - I almost had a repeat yesterday. I was driving the wounded touring out of the parking lot at Longo's. At the driveway, I'm stopped to turn right onto the street. I see a C class coming from my left - signalling to turn into the driveway. Knowing that it's super slippery, I decide to wait instead of pulling out in front of it, but also aware that it might understeer and plough right into the unicorn.

Sure enough, driver can't slow down and decided to bail on the turn - goes straight.... then stops. I have to give her credit for not crashing into me, but instead she pulls over to make a U turn. I would think this would be an unsafe place to stop considering what just happened.

So the verdict is in. Car can't be repaired. They offered $8800 (taxes in). I said no of course...let the negotiations begin!
I asked about buying back the car and they it's possible but because it has structural damage I would need to find someone with a special license? Anyone know anything about this?

mech9T8 03-14-2014 12:39 PM

Just called Phil at Eurostyle...apparently there is no special license. Thanks Phil!

My insurance said something similar. They would only "sell me the car" if there is no structural damage. BTW, they didn't really sell the car back to me... they just gave me a cheque and I signed a "proof of loss" stating that I agree to the amount on the cheque.

This amount is the "walk away" amount less 30%.

Went to go see a 540i in Ottawa this weekend. But it wasn't quite what I was looking for. The search continues.
