I'm not sure how the value works, but you can buy back written off cars for cheap most of the time....

why does he have to buy it? because that's his car, so that doesn't make any sence...

if he crashes his car, that's still his, he doesn't have to buy it, because the car belongs to him...unless he sold it to ICBC or whoever...

Dude, your car isn't fucked. Get it back from Progressive ASAP or you'll get reamed for price, probably. You can find a trailing pack from a wrecker or a broken 7 in town for cheap I'm sure, and they take about two seconds to swap. Your car still running? From what I understand you can run just fine without a trailing pack.

I think when I met you my LEADING pack was dead. =)

Too late.. got raped.. wasn't the pack, it was the wiring to the trailing pack.. was totally fried.
Yeah, the car was still running... shitty but running.
i think the fuel-cut switch i put in it helped with the no more flooding either.

it would run, but the second it got to 6k rpm, it would just shut down. and would NOT start for about an hour at a time.
wish i knew how to fix what went wrong myself.. but i had no idea it even had anything to do with the ignition.. i thought the ECU was toast.
