hi guys... its been 7yrs already. a trudeau is in charge again and the usa just elected the man to end the world. are any of u still around? i meant to come back and update u guys on what i did, but i got lazy and neglected u kids like an e30 deadbeat.
so here goes:
i took the advice to hardball icbc and to counter with examples of similar e30's for sale. i didnt seek an appraiser nor did i take it to a dealer for a valuation quote. im glad i didnt, b/c in the end, all i was able to muscle was an extra 200 to become $1600. in my haste, i forgot to listen to u and submit maintenance records for the last year... me is stupid. anyways, somehow their offer became a take it or leave it option. i was going to take out the battery, the stock stereo and speakers to get even, but my adjustor was a dink and said no, the car has to be surrendered as it was last driven, 'sigh' the house wins again.
the $1600 wasnt going to be upped. it was dead money. since i was a renter and i planned on moving, i didnt have the garage to part it out myself. i didnt have a choice. i took the money.
i was so disgusted at myself. it took me ages to find an e30 and it took me even longer to bring it back to near stock. i had boxes of spare parts and other bits like a set of mint basketweaves on new tread...
anyways, a quick summer replacement kept getting delayed until i finally made a move in 2014. care to guess what i finally did? (i know, that was 3yrs ago)
