Then what kind of title does it get? My totaled E46 M3 got a salvage title after being flooded.

I’m going to let insurance take it away as I don’t have time to fix the car. I appreciate the help though. Rip

Wasn’t this a decent car? Should have offered it up to us to buy...

Settlement hasn't been made, but I know I won't be able to spend time to fix it until 6 to 13 months from now. A lot of people have contacted me and want to buy, but I'll be stuck with a broken car if no one ends up following through. If there's a way to guarantee that an interested party will make purchase after I obtain salvage title, I'm open to selling to them.

Edit: For those interested, some info
1999 Black/Black coupe with 5MT
98,55X miles
I'm third owner
Drives fine in its current state
Exterior 7/10 (disregarding collision area)
Interior 8/10
Mechanical 8/10

Several dents and scratches all around car; 2-3" tear in driver seat, 3" tear in carpet on driver side trans tunnel, A/C chirping when braking, crooked clutch pedal, glovebox panel reglued on - poor job, headliner needs to be redone - have new fabric and adhesive; P/S leak, oil pan gasket seep, needs oil change, needs muffler hangers. That's all I can think of right now.

$3,600? I'll have to double check.

Edit: $2,600. I don't know how much it will cost to fix, and if I were to fix it, I'd be worried about resale value. I don't want to lose thousands on the car when it comes time to sell.

Like I said via PM, I will 100% take it. This gives me a perfect excuse to get my garage organized
