      Barely a scratch on the car I hit... rather have metal bend than the meat bag inside however.

      You should set your expectations low. Your car has 350K miles on it. The insurance company is probably going to appraise it for about $600. Now before you go off and flame me you need to understand that I am not judging your car's condition here. I'm just telling you what the market data that the insurance company will be using is going to show. You can fight them to prove your car is worth more but you're not going to be successful in getting a huge check. You can use the work you've put into the car to get more money.

      Here's your dose of reality:

      1. If you take the full settlement they will take your car.
      2. You can offer the insurance company a way out by taking a reduced settlement where they don't brand the title. This is your best option.
      3. You choose to not take any settlement.
      4. You can take a slightly reduced settlement, have your title branded and keep the car. You will likely be required to have it repaired and inspected by the state before it can be driven on the road again and insuring it could be difficult.

      So think about your path forward here. From outward appearances it would seem you have the parts and ability to repair the car and keep it on the road. That's cheaper than handing your car off to an insurance company and trying to find another.

      Just trying to help with some common sense.

      I'd like to run two weegans. One mine and one I'm going to see...
      This just reminded me of my tragedy and I wanted to have a PDF that I can keep in my records.

      So just negotiate that in the settlement like option 2 Brian is suggesting. Isn't this also what Ian did?

      Or option 3 if that doesn't work out lol.

      Can't really expect much more from any car... That's like 175,000,000 tire revolutions (on 3/4 original axles & original transaxle)... At 2000RPM and 35mph (10,200h) that is 1.2bn engine revolutions... pretty crazy. Really goes to show how good cars have gotten... Now how much did it cost to get to that point... let's never think about that.

      You are really parting? I have a silver 04 vr fully in tact parts car if there's something you need. The paint on the hood is... Not awesome but everything else is pretty decent besides the bottom of the bumper cover. In Idaho

      Edit: I'm also not ready to part with the headlights given their cost and availability where I live.

      Are you going to fix it an keep driving it?
      TBD...

      Maybe not totaled now, still have not agreed w/ the ins. And now with all of the BaT V70Rs selling for stupid money how is mine so 'undervalued'... It has been a miserable experience.

      No offense to the ins agents here, but that is a bloodthirsty industry. The bad people ruined it for everybody.

      I donít think anything with the miles that yours has would really ever be worth what others are going for. . Just the way it is. Maybe if you had a Ď62 250 GTO, but thatís about it.

      Certainly it wouldn't bring the huge $ the low mile ones are, but I'm not sure it'd bring that much less than a 200k mile one. Those are selling for pretty solid $ on BaT, too. I'm not sure miles hurt that much once the low mile premium wears off.

      I mean at 350k Iíd say itís pretty well done when it comes to value. But if your right then those high miles owner better get it cleaned up and put on BaT now while there hot.

      Undervalued in the sense of them continuing to not use Rs as comparables. And not understanding an R is not like a non R V70 or an XC70. R isn't a trim package, it's basically a different car that just so happens to share a shell with a V70.

      That 160k mile VR on BaT is a perfect example. If it was an XC or not R over $3k would be insanity. And yet it sold for like $12k.

      I just want the car back on the road with a clean title. I've looked a few Rs to replace it. People need to learn to use Lexol...

      would a pair sell better than a single?

      How are they even going to establish a depreciation curve past 200-250k? There are not enough comps in that mileage range to constitute a statistically significant data set.
