One step closer. The next part will happen pretty quickly. This is eating into their 'cycle time', which is the time that it takes to get a claim settled from start to finish. It looks bad upon them...

That last one was also a TYPO on my part: $23,675 rather than $26,675. I apologize. IF the adjuster shoots you a # that is particularly low, then its time to bring in an attorney. He should also ask...

I see that you've opted out of receiving PMs, so I'll put what I find here:

The highest # I came across on a 2010 535xi where Progressive paid out $29,598 with 61102. The last 7 of the VIN are:...

As the original poster pointed out, it wasn't an adjuster who gave the $4k estimate, but an appraiser. No teardown was done, so there is obviously going to be more damage.

Start putting some #s together for yourself in terms of what you can replace the car for. KBB is a decent guideline to gage a fair price. If you have a lien on the car, that is paid off and the...

There's a good chance you have some unibody damage. That increases the liklihood of a total loss claim.

There is no fighting the ticket. Driver's have a responsibility to maintain control of their vehicle.

Aftermarket parts not added to the policy won't be covered.
