    BMW CCA - HPDE - Hallett Motor Racing Circuit - September 2012 - - - My first DE.

    Turn-in for Turn 4. Blind, uphill right-hander ... Looking back at Turns 2 & 3.
    [IMG]

    Turn-in for Turn 4. First session - E46 M3- One of the two M3s that caught me Saturday.
    [IMG]

    Turn 7. Second session - E90 M3- Second of the two M3s that caught me Saturday.
    [IMG]

    Turn 7. Blind left-hander over the hill. By the end of the day, just lift a bit, then back on it.
    Over the top and then drop down into the hole called "The B*tch" setting up for the uphill right-hander.
    Fun, but more than a little scary.

    I don't know S.C. laws, but I'd think if you weren't given a ticket by the police at the time, or not specifically cited as AT FAULT in the police report, then it is clearly NOT your fault and the other driver's insurance company is on the hook - and thus, you're under no obligation to assume any loss just because they're asking you to, and they can go take a hike. Check for clarification, but you may find a check in the mailbox from the insurance company - if you accept the payment by depositing it, you may be accepting their terms, and after that, good luck getting any further reimbursement from them. Your challenge may well be proving to the insurance company the value of what has been damaged as far as the custom lights and spoiler go, along with anything else (paint jobs, etc).

    Your car looks totally repairable to me. Your discussion should probably be continued here: http://www.bmwcca.org/forum/index.php?forums/buy-lease-finance-insurance.159/

    I didn't think of using that part of the forum. I took my post down and put it in a more appropriate area for everyone.

    Your right, even though insurance claimed it is totaled, I want the car no matter what.

    Thank you for your help!

    Just rescued mine, has massive problems but it will be one happy car once I'm done with it (I suppose it's like going to the dentist, and I'm the dentist ;))

    Yes, the old engine was beyond tired, so wanted something modern.

    Three months later, still no payment, not even my fault. Trying to get a fair replacement value price.

    It really is. I'm trying to keep the car (salvage) as part of the settlement. This company is offering me nothing. I just got a copy of a complete breakdown on the vin. Insurance was arguing the fact that it can not be proven to be an MTECH II. I just got the proof I need, I hope it yields a better offer from them. If not, next step is forced arbitration.

    Here are a couple of shots of the E30 I just picked up as a project. I plan on performing an engine swap from the original M42 the car currently has to an S52 M engine.
