Write off advice

1 post in this topic

Posted · Report post

Hi All,

I am new to the forums so it is very nice to meet you all and apologies if I am posting in the wrong section.

Recently my 370z (2010 convertible auto) has been hit in the back and after a month of assessments and deliberations the insurance company decided it will be a write off due to high costs of repair needed for a full chassis rebuild in the rear. Now they have given me two options:

1 - Take the market value of 23k minus 1.6k of outstanding insurance payments for the period. So about 21.4k.

2 - Go through the other party's insurer, receive 23k - 3k salvage fee and keep the car. So 20k plus the car, which will not be roadworthy anymore.

Could I ask for some of your advice, especially if you faced a similar situation in the past? Is it worth keeping the car with 20k, would I be able to sell it for parts or sell it as a whole? It's in a very good condition (minus the chassis and rear damage obviously), engine has done 94k and never had any problems.


Thank you very much for your advice in advance!!!

      Hey Squad, 350z owner here, haven’t got any mods on my car but hoping to pick up some tip and tricks. Thinking a custom plate would be a good place to start. Never owned one before what do they cost and would all the good combos be taken by now?
