Value will be based on what the selling prices are for similar cars in the market, but that won't be MSRP. Insurance company can search listings within a given radius of the OP (either used cars with similar mileage, or leftover 2012s) and see what the dealers would sell them the car for.
I understand that, but it even though it is a 2012, It was a brand new car owned for less than a month with less than 1,000 miles on it. I was completely 100% not at fault in the collision, therefore I feel I should have the car replaced with a new one. Good luck finding a used 335i from 2012 with 1,000 miles on it...

Either way, I have my attorney representing me, and he's taking care of anything. I'm just tasked with finding a replacement which unfortunately, has proved an almost impossible task. There's are not that many 335is out there.
