So sorry to hear about this dude. At first I skipped over the thread thinking it wasn't one of the members here until I saw another one of your posts saying your car is gone....
Always admired your IS, definitely the nicest one I've seen locally

Best of luck with ICBC

I don't know with ICBC he might luck out. My friend bought a rebuilt civic for 8K years ago. It was stolen 3 months later and ICBC gave him 13 grand.

Doesn't look that bad (assuming nothing in the rear). I had a similar accident a year ago to my drivers side (little more worse) and it cost $6000 in repairs.

The suspension and steering assembly is wrecked.
It's hard to tell from the pics. The repairs are over 10k now but I told them to do a more detailed estimate.

The only thing I could take off is the stereo. I'll be selling that this week.
Got a call from ICBC today. They found the other party 100% at fault

So I guess I have two options left:

Buy out the car for $$ and be left with $$
Or
Take whatever ICBC estimates it at (good chance they'll undervalue so I'll have to argue with them on the amount)

Depending on how much I can buy the car back, I just might do it.
Use the money to buy something else, and slowly rebuild my old car into a mean machine.

Ya pretty fair. It was below my expectations but above my low ball fear. So they met right in the below while I still pulled stuff off the car.
Sucks I can't take off the new sways, rotors and brakes because I don't have the old stock ones.
