First I'm glad to hear you are ok, just imagine what would have
happened if you were in one of Korea's finest econoboxes?
An easy way to post pictures is via www.photobucket.com
Onto your questions:
1. What is the best way to recover the RS-2, 6-speed, Stomung,
lighting, etc. upgrades in the settlement?
Keep the salvage of the car
2. Can I readily buy the car back to part out or sell the vehicle
complete to one of you guys?
It's your car, they can't require you to give it up for salvage.
Simply inform the adjuster that you will be retaining ownership of
the vehicle and they will deduct the salvage value from the proceeds
they negotiate to pay you for the loss of the car.
3. Anything else to do/not do? I have already retained an attorney
who already has had a forensic engineer come to do an accident
Sounds like you are well on track, I would begin documenting what S6's
are selling for in similiar condition as yours. The insurance company
will most likely be making you an offer below what you feel the car
Find documented cases of similiar condition cars currently for sale,
and cars that have sold recently that can uphold the value of your car.
Remember that while you won't have an increased value for 6-speed or
RS2 mods, you should still produce any and all repair/maintance records
(a new 6 speed is maintance) to prove to the insurance company that you
took great care of your S6 and it was in much better shape than the
average S6 is.
Other than that just work on healing and keep us informed on your
Glad to hear you are safe
