Yup, I knew about it for quite a while. By now it's probably stolen but initially he thought it was in one of those police pounds, that his car got towed by the police.

Anyways even though if his car + mods is woth $80k U.S., it's probably not worth that much.

He has probably so much mileage and the car gets abused from filming for Mishief, Gumball and anything else that goes. If you look at his recent pictures he's got like a cracked fog light, parts of the paint on the front bumper chipped off from Gumball and some moldings missing. heh.

Either way his car isn't worth much now. Just like when you sell your car w/mods, the mods are like peanuts in $ value.

Your right, unless you get it appraised and get it insured for more money, which he did. But he says that it was like a year ago when the insurance company appraised it or something and he isnt sure he can get all the cash back for it now. Regardless, I dont think that his car is in 1 piece anymore. Its probably already chopped up by now.

E46_lover you are right...
The only mod he has in the enginer compartment is the ECIS intake and maybe a strut bar (forgot). Brullen exhaust, Zeemax front/rear bumper, European Ellipsoids + HIDs, Sparco racing seats, roll cage (street setup??), HAmann PG3 rims + Coilovers, Hamann dash.....

mainly the rest being for cosmetics.

Dado's got his car appraised last year at $71,000. If infact it did get stolen, the insurance never replaces the appraised value.... it just helps give their appraiser a better understanding of the condition of the car. he had NO motor work done except for an intake and Brullen muffler. The most expensive upgrade are his wheels and brakes. He'll be lucky to get $50,000 from the insurance.


There are 2 different kinds of appraisals.... one's called a Type19 and the other a Type 19A. The 19A only qualifies for cars 25yr and older (classic antiques) that only appreciate in value and are driven only recreationally. The Type 19 appraise cars that are current and basically list the mods or alterations done to the car at that specific time of appraisal... the value depreciates with the age of the car, and you never get back what you put in (until it turns 25yrs old).
