*Whose* value of the car? Yours? The drunk's? Kelly Blue Book?
Is that 25% and you get to keep the car?

I'd start with KBB or NADA value of an average 10V car at retail.
Then show them the receipts for all the work done to make your
car above average. Show the "comps", sale prices off of eBay
or ads on Craigslist or the Audifans Marketplace. Keep rejecting
their offers until you are happy.  It might not hurt to hint
at "courts" and "lawyers'. If they are truly at 25% of KBB, a
good lawyer and a sympathetic judge should ream them a new one.
