    Parts always have value. I can reuse or resell most of that 24k. No need for pity.

    You think that is how it works. You lost a shit load of money "modding" a car that is worth maybe 4 or 5k. I mean not like i care is your car and money just think is preposterous.

    I wasn't lecturing you at all. You are the one that said how much you spent on it and i just commented based on that. If you didn't want anyone commenting on that why say it then? You realized how much money you spent and now you are like oh fuck. All good i have done the same thing with my mazda 3. Spend 6k on mods and only got offered 2500. I'm not being an ass just giving my honest opinion.

    I get that a lot, just last week too - we're talking about mods and the guy says why didn't you just get an S4? at the time I couldn't afford it - and I thought the 4 turbo would be better gas mileage in the long run. I don't regret my decision, IMO mods are done for your smiles per gallon. I still smile when I boot up my RNSE and the Lambo logo shows up. best mod for non car people that get in my car. wait WTF this is a lambo? yes obviously.

    I hope it works out for you,

    Every time I thought about a mod I went to this forum first and it was done, discussed or I knew to stay away from everyoneís experience. Huge thank you

    OP, that sucks, I hope you get a good settlement with insurance. I am considering selling my avant if you are interested. It has 122,000 and I have all maintenance records. It is quartz grey. PM if you would like details.

    Highly recommend you hire a 3rd party adjuster. Maybe cost you $300 - $400 bucks, but could get you thousands more for your car (literally thousands more). Sometimes the ins companies just respond better when you play their game.

    I haven't heard about this...hiring a third party adjuster...why would the insurance take their appraisal over that of their own adjuster?

    $20k + in receipts bought me another $1500. They now offer $8300. $6900 after buyback. They will not entertain a third party adjuster.

    In all fairness that doesnít sound too bad. When I totaled my Sline in 2016 I got 10,500 and only had about 85k miles. I didnít bother with a second quote and was given little money for my mods/maintenance. This was also through geico at the time.

    That's my intention. Looking for an avant shell, but everything I can find runs and is overpriced.

    Remember folks, mods donít add value. Nor do repair costs add value.

    They add value to enthusiasts, but we are a very small subsection of the buying public. And even then, $20k in mods turns my $8k car into a $10k car for an enthusiast.

    That's all I want. $10k. I'll part out or transfer everything else. I dumped all this money into it thinking it would be a solid ride for another 5+ years. To have it taken away from me 5 days after I finally got it all back together breaks my heart.

    I agree. I never expected $15k or $20k, even with $20k in receipts, but I wouldn't refuse $10k, minus the buy back.
