Dealerships have dibs on auctioned off write-off cars.

Auctions are the best bet, but you aren't allowed in them.

Its kinda pointless now a days to go to an auction and bid on these cars since the prices end up being too high. From what I hear, auctions have people in the crowds pushing the bid prices. Starks has public auctions. Check out their website.

Yes and No! The salvage title can be replaced by a Rebuild title when the car is fixed properly, but it WONT go to clean (or brand "None" title).

The branding system is totally useless IMO, tons of cars dont get branded or get the wrong brand...So its really up to the buyer to make sure they know what they are getting...

I remember being down at the STARK metal/scrap metal place. During the summer they auction off lots of cars thats are messed up,damaged. We were dropping off some aluminum and just went to check it out. They had Mercedes, BMW's, everyhing you could think of.
Think it only happens during the summer though.

It's true. My car has a rebuilt title, I've seen the documentation and the frame was good, but the cost of the repair exceeded the replacement value of the car.

At the time, the car was worth $7500, repairs and bodywork was 8g.
I think the rear window is worth almost a grand new...

^^absolutley. Rebuilt cars as a whole are worth staying away from. However, if you have the dilligence to see what repairs were done, and how, you can get a very cheap car.

a e90 was totalled last year because of a light front end accident, it needed mabye a hood, some glass on the bumper and a rad. Sold for under 20K usd (last year, mind you, e90's were brand new).

if you picked it up, sat on it for a few months to find a rollover or something, could've fixed it for dirt.

You are somewhat right on this one! I would be more afraid/careful when buying a "clean" title car...
Most people see "Brand NONE" and assume the car was NEVER in an accident! Wich is far from the truth...SO many cars dont get branded, but get rebuild after accidents, then people buy them, not knowing ANYTHING!!!
With a salvage title car, you KNOW the car was damaged, the government has pictures of all the damage, list of all parts used to fix it, and list of shop where the work was done, and after all that you have to pass the "structural safety"...
