That is only a feeler submit as I’m nonetheless within the insurance coverage declare course of to determine what we’re doing with it. Any plans to promote this automobile are contingent on the insurance coverage firm totaling it out. In the event that they pay for repairs or repairs are usually not that far over the money worth, I plan to maintain this automobile. I think the opposite driver’s insurance coverage firm would whole this automobile out over a scratched fender, so I doubt getting it mounted via insurance coverage is even an choice. I have not had an opportunity to seek out out what it will value me to repair it but as this was only a few days in the past. I am trying to gauge curiosity in promoting this as a components automobile to maintain it within the VW group so it could actually dwell on via another person’s automobile(s) or be repaired by somebody who can afford the physique work I won’t be capable to. I wasn’t capable of care for the automobile in addition to I’d have appreciated as a result of a tough monetary interval spanning your entire eleven years I’ve owned this automobile. It was solely just lately once I might even take into account getting issues mounted that it acquired hit (go determine…)

The worth is a guess of what the insurance coverage firm will cost me to purchase it again below a salvage title. This worth shall be up to date or the itemizing shall be closed as soon as I get extra data from the insurance coverage firm after the inspection is accomplished subsequent week.
