Ben, Brandon:  Hi Guys.  As an eS2 lurker and the continuing owner of eS2 II 
(the car after Brandon's), I can provide you with a value based on a fender 
bender I had some years ago.  It may take me a day or two to dig up the 
valuation letter due to a busy weekend.

The appraisal is from a specialized exotic car appraiser retained by my 
insurance company and that of the person who hit my car.  They agreed to the 
third party appraisal after my insurer stated that the car was worth more 
than a 1991 Coupe Quattro.

As I recall, the value in the letter is $26,000, a number right in line with 
Brandon's.  Stay tuned, guys, I have the letter for you shortly.
