Insurance Company informed, no haggling, they sent an Assessor to the garage to have a look at it and he has written the car that's the end of my beloved 645..let's see what sort of payout they give me!
I'm gutted, can't believe the car could be written off for what was essentially water about the size of a cup worth.
Probably for the best at this point, I hope you come out OK with the settlement.

That sucks, trading a car in is always favors the dealer. But when you are in a situation like you said, where you are unable to sell it yourself, not much choice. Depreciation in 6 months should be that dramatic, they are just jamming it to you so they can make more money!
