Insurance questions...

Thanks to everyone for the input ... I've copied everything and will pass it
along to him.

One thing I forgot to mention is that he'd just installed a set of 15" BBS
wheels and tires on it and Farmer's $4,100 offer supposedly gives him full
credit for this.  If true, then their offer really stinks!  BTW, he claims
that even the adjuster's supervisor won't talk to him about his claim!  He
is hoping to get $5-5200 for the car and plans to buy back the salvage for
the $900 they want for it ... he's found an '87 Coupe GT for $1,500 and is
planning to graft the quattro bits onto it!  :^)

BTW, this should serve as a good reminder: If you have fancy wheels or car
stereo in your Audi and are involved in an accident, have it towed to your
house or somewhere else where you have unlimited access to swap everything
back to OEM.  In this case, Farmer's adjuster would have never known about
his BBS wheels and their offer probably wouldn't seem quite as bad.  If it
gets towed to the typical secured storage yard, they won't let you pull or
replace ANY parts even though you still own the car!  BTDT...
