The insurance company will look at the damage and evaluate the amount it takes with parts and labor to set the car back to undamaged. They will not take into consideration rims, or any mod.. if the price of the car is less than the damage... it's totaled. You can buy your car back though from the insurance but then it carries a salvage tital

Re: (VDubStudinOly)

got it quoted today for 2700, the value the guy had with the wrong miles he read it wrong was 2675. so not sure wtf to do if they total it ill say no! and show them i put the 900 to charger like 2 weeks ago and the rims 800 about 2 months ago.
and when i got it last yr the DMV said the value was 5500, and was being stupid about me having the fake proof of purchase thing for 3000. so well have to wait and see ill get pics as soon as my phone will send to the damn emails!

Dude, you are taking it in the pooper for 5g's. If that's the quote you are going with they will for sure total out your car. They don't care how much you put into it, your 800 wheels will add maybe 50 bux to the value if you are lucky and the charger will be looked at as maintenance that won't add any value

He's talking about this post:

And seriously, an insurance company can total or fix your car if they want to its at their discretion, whethere you realized it or not when you paid to start your policy you were agreeing to that. If you are unhappy with settlement you can reject first offer...and buck for more money based on whatever you think (receipts help) justfies it. You can always buy it back after they cut you a check and total it.

Re: GOT IN A WRECK TODAY! (TeutonicVR6)

Damon is right. Here's how things work; The claims adjuster takes a look at the damage and uses his considerable knowledge of how much shop TIME (X hours @ Y $/hr) and MATERIALS (Replacement Parts) will cost to repair the car to its pre-existing state. If it adds up to more than what your car was worth (based upon values set in KBB or Edmunds or Whatever) they are probably going to total the car. Now here is where you have to do your homework. You need to be able to document how much your car is worth based on hard numbers (preferably with receipts to prove your case). You can accept the settlement offer or reject it. The claims adjuster doesn't care one way or the other because he is not emotionally invested in your car. Insurance companies operate on facts and statistics, not emotion. You do have the choice of buying the car back and parting it out or having it repaired out of your own pocket. If the insurance company agrees to repair your car they will only pay for what it takes to restore it to its pre-existing state. If the body shop agrees to do all the work for the settlement check you'll get your car back pretty close to what it was. In my case I had some parts that I used to bargain with the shop and the insurance company. The body shop makes it's money by buying parts at wholesale and selling at retail and by charging labor time to do the repairs. If what you want done is going to cost more than what the insurance company is willing to pay and the body shop is willing to do...you will have to come up with the coin to have the extra work done.
