Re: Need Advice please - should i keep or should i sell?

Look around for trade and private sale prices. When my 1998 Meg Coupe was written off cat c last October (2.3k damage, twisted subframe and broken boot lock, bent rear floor pan) I argued for, and successfully got 1000. The first offer was 500 (wouldn't have got anything for that, not decent anyway), second offer was 750. When they realised I wasn't going away until I got what I asked for 'what would it take to make you happy?' Luckily everything went through the other driver's insurance directly, so I did not have to take excess out of that.
