Value of our vehicles

Last December my '91 avant was involved in a front end collision.  My car
had 248K miles and has a "reconstructed collision" title, from the previous
owner. The other drivers ins. paid me $6500 to fix my car.  The original
estimate was for $5200, but he wrote the estimate for a 10v 200.  Apparently
they don't always list the 20v as a different car from the 10v.  Let me
state this again, this settlement was to fix the car, it was not a payment
for a total loss.  Find a few of the avants forsale on Audifans or Audiworld
and show that to the ins co.  I think a few of them are priced pretty high.

Subject: Value of our vehicles

Dear fellow listers,
Well there goes another one, I recently crashed my Avant into another
vehicle and am having huge troubles getting the insurance company to cough
up anything close to replacment value.
We started off at $4500 and have been advancing slowly up to $6500. We
started off with them finding a 100 sedan and thought that was the same.

My insurance company has requested I contact a dealer to determine the value
of my avant, the local dealer here (Sunset Porsche Audi) doesn't want any
part of trying to establish the value of a car they wouldn't even want to
put on their lot. Anybody got any advice???

While mine was not pristine, I loved it. It did everything I wanted. I ski a
ton during the winter and it worked perfectly for the 65 ski days we had
here in the Pacific Northwest this last winter. 4 studded snow tires and you
can climb trees. I want another Avant! It is the best car I could ever
imagine for all the things I do in my life. I'm also looking for maybe a S6

I anticipate buying the car back to have spares for my next one, or perhaps
put the 20V into my URQ. Let me know if you need anything. The car was hit
in the right front corner trashing the hood, fender, bumber support,
valance, headlight and all the stuff underneath. Still runs and drives, the
tires rub on the inner fenderwell.
