Looks like going to be TOTALED by insurance value on these cars are all over the place from low 4k to maybe 6-7k depending also on mileage on it as well they don't really consider if the 120k or other maintenance have been done..
thanks for the tips guys, I will be sure to try to work with the insurance company before getting serious with them.
hopefully i can get atleast kbb value, ive got my eye on another 93 red vr4, for a steal of a price!
either way i think ill end up keeping this one or buying it back.
if the insurance totales the vehicle can i still opt to have it repaired? or will they just cut me a check and have me buy it back from them?
I had a truck get totaled and I was able to buy it back for 10% of the settlement.
Found out today the car was totaled, and the adjuster qouted me at 4400 and they keep the car, 3000 and i keep the car. Which is reasonable considering the car had a salvaged title before the accident.
This made me curious because they said the buy back price for the car would be 513$ which is obviously worth the parts.
4400 subtract 513 is definatly not 3000$
so ill be in more contact with them tomorrow and ask a bunch more questions. just thought i would update the post!
yeah, if that is a possibility i will definatly go that route.
i found another 93 vr4 for 4000 that i could drive until i got the cash together to swap all my performance parts to that vehicle. or i will use it as a parts car to repair mine, and then sell off the rest of it.
ill keep the thread posted as the journey continues lol.
thanks for the input guys, your kind support helps me from crying myself to sleep at night
does anyone know a quality place to purchase body panels from?
fender, bumper, maybe side skirt, splash gaurd.
Have you considered buying used? Since you're likely to repaint the parts anyways, the stock bumpers and sideskirts hold up pretty well. You might want to check the classifieds area here on the forums for one of the part-out threads.
