I've never done it before, but if it were me I would ask them what category of write off it would be. If it is C or D, then I would keep it and if the repair turns out to be a nightmare, you could sell it on for a few quid. If it's B, then there is no point keeping it unless you want to strip bits off of it to sell and then scrap the car when all the good stuff is gone. If it's A, then tell then to take it away, after all, it will at that point belong to them, so it is their responsibility to dispose of it (at no cost to yourself)

Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow...

Wanna see what I drive? No pics of the latest Passat, but you can see the Scenic II here and the CB1000R here!

Previous Passat here and Bandit here.
Currently in martin999's garage:
2011 (11) VW Passat 2.0 TDi SE + options in Island Grey, 2011 (11) Honda CB1000R in Pearl Cool White... oh and a 2004 (54) Secnic II 1.5dCi Dynamique in Ottoman Blue !
