i'd shoot for $13K valuation, and make them decide to total based on that number. if they total, you get check for $13K, and buy back car cheap for parts.
it'll require a fight. they will try to give you $4K, you then have to find comparables, recent sales, your receipts for work and mods, etc.
if car is in great shape, get pro appraiser when time comes to look at car and give pre-hit valuation. should be easy since only rear ended, so rest of car should look good still.

The avant has 112k on the clock. It has an MTM 1+ chipset, Porsche Big Reds and all-OEM HID conversion. None of these were done recently.
In the past year its had new tires, new front pads, new right front control arm, new right front outer CV, new right front tie-rod assembly, new OEM coolant overflow tank. Approximate total of those repairs (with receipts) $1,350.
To elaborate, the car is perfectly drivable and there is no way I will not continue to drive it unless the insurance company pulls a coup d'etat on me...

how many miles and what is condition? how much spent on maintenance, tires/brakes, repairs, mods in last year?

Fellas. Got rearended in the s6 this morning on way to work. I am fine,
rear bumper is damaged and right rear quarter panel is slightly damaged.
The other guy 100 percent at fault. His insurance, progressive, coming to
look at car Monday. Based on age and availability of parts he said could be
a total. Can you folks give me some recent sales prices for 95.5 s6 avant
on the off chance they total it and lowball me?
Thanks in advance.
