I thought the rule of thumb was to total it if the repair cost exceeded 65% to 70% of the current market value of the vehicle? Looks like $7500 is a little over the 70% mark.

They're pushing the envelope as that bodyshop keeps digging around.

He told me the guideline is 70%, but we're not there yet.

From what I can gather, you are a little over 50 percent based on retail book value. In the St. Augustine, FL area, they are running around $14,500.00 to $16,000.00 plus.

Glad everything is going well. Has there been any problems getting OEM parts?

Not so far. When I was out there yesterday, some parts had already arrived, all in GM packaging (hood hinge, fender liner, a large carton which must have been either the front or rear fascia, and several small cartons).

Hey Rusty B - Just wondering how things are going with the repairs. If you've posted any updates any place I've missed them. Hope all is well.

The shop called yesterday...it's ready. I didn't have time to pick it up because they called late and I had dinner reservations with my Valentine. I'm picking it up today. Pics to follow.

Awesome news.

Make sure you pop the trunk and hood and look at all the small stuff on both ends to make sure it's properly back together.

TaDaaa!

They gave me credit for a new tire, so I ordered a set of Michelin Primacy MXV4's.

Are you still driving that car with that too tall antenna that GM puts on all their cars... The car definitely has a left tilt. For 10 dollars u can order the opel antenna at any GM dealership...just saying.
