I'm still down for a tDub lunch and happy to give a few rides in my little go cart. I can only take 2 folks with me at a time as I leave my son's car seat in the back.

I want it to be totaled. We'll see how the fight with the other drivers insurance plays out.

I think there might be services that offer pricing/valuation for cars to help with diminished value claims.

I find out Friday if they want to try to fix it or total it. I am lucky the other lady has good insurance. If they restore it, it has to be done to pre-wreck condition and I'll get compensated for diminished value. If they total it, they will have an independent appraiser appraise my car and I'll likely hire my own to value it as well. With this being 1 of 10, they can't just use NADA value, as both NADA and KBB don't even allow you to pick options that this car came stock with, let alone the upgrades. Again, if they restore it, it has to have the same upgrades as before.

Caliber will only do the body work and paint. Apparently, Mercedes Benz does all the restoration and there are no after market parts available. I think the body is fine (no frame), but they'll put it on the frame machine to measure it. The $Texas will be in in the suspension and steering that was destroyed - it seems from first glance (without the breakdown having occured yet), that the engine was unharmed and airbags didn't deploy.

I'm on the fence as to whether I want it back and get diminished value or get compensated for what it is worth or what it would take to replace a 1 of 10 car. This will play into their decision to total it or not and determine what I will have next if I don't get this beauty back.

it seems like you really enjoy telling people how rare and expensive your car is, so you should keep it

That doesn't look like enough to total out a car valued at over $60,000.

At a minimum, they'll have to replace the suspension and steering system. I'm unsure if the engine was hurt or not, as there were no fluids leaking, but the labor and parts will be $Texas from insurance. They also have to bake in diminished value in calculating the repairs, as I'll seek compensation for the delta in value post wreck.

^^yeah I understand that. But those aren't exactly high dollar components, in comparison to plenty of other items on your car.

Either way I don't blame you for not really wanting to deal with a repaired car. Most auto enthusiasts don't.

I called Caliber again today to get an update...still 50/50 as to whether or not it will get totaled. They have to restore it to pre-accident condition if they go that route and they are having a hard time finding parts. Even the grill is hard to find as it was custom for this edition and not a normal AMG grill...hoping to get clarity by the end of the week as to whether or not I should be car shopping.
