So it minimizes chance of total loss?
You misunderstood the post.

What is your opinion of what the insurance company will pay given the OP's circumstances? Given the model year of the car, 2013, age, only a very few months, and the low mileage, 5,000, will they reimburse the OP for the amount he actually paid for the car? The only way to make him whole is to put him back into another 2013 model F30 equipped the same way as the totalled car.
