well guys got news from insurance today...............

Well I got a letter from insurance today and my car is officially totalled.........

I dunno if thats a good thing or bad thing as of right now, but with all my receipts that i gave them they still said my car still wasn't worth more, than the $3,800 worth of repairs.........

I probably gave them up to about $8,000 worth of receipts... I'm definitly going to buy it back from insurance company and use the left over money for a downpayment on a new car..... guess its time for a new project now.

So sorry to see that!

Well, at least you know that if you sell it on here, someone will get the opportunity to salvage all that hard work, and it won't rot in some yard.

At least your wheels didn't get messed up... swap all your parts. You going to stay with a jetta?

Did you insure the car as a VR or just an 89 GL?

Here is a neat idea (impractical as it is) Get another A2, and mod it to look exactly the same as your silver one, only put a turbo 16v or 1.8t in it.

here 's an idea...I must see free mk2 jetta rollers all over and you can buy rollers for a couple hundred bones. Buy a roller and transplant.

Re: well guys got news from insurance today............... (eurovwgti)

i am sorry to see that man... but New Jersey is no better, i have tried to ask questions about the car even if I have the recipts to prove everything w/ the full compressive they said the most we would give you would be 3,000. Which is bull i bought the car for 2g, and if i start to do a swap it puts me over another 3g into it.
NJ is the worst state out there

Jez that sucks man. Was that your daily driver? If it was I'd seriously be considering parting it out, then taking the money and putting it down on a either a new(er) car; at least until you're ready to start a new project. Whatever you do, I'd give it some time to think over your options before you make a definitive choice. Good luck man. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: well guys got news from insurance today............... (2slo2go)

part it out man...... part it out to till your looking at a bent frame on cinder blocks. I don't know how much garage space you have and what not, but If I were you i'd part everything from fenders to the steering wheel man. every penny adds up bro http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
