Default Diminished value assessment?

I won the case, so now I need to figure out diminished value. I tried to find current and old listings on eBay for salvage/rebuilt cars, but I didn't see anything with comparable miles (98k). Are there other sites where I can filter by title type or accident history? Or, do you have any recommendations for companies that assess diminished value?

1999 M3 coupe
98k miles
5MT
Cosmos black
Black leather interior with manual vader seats
HK audio and 6 CD changer
OBC
Side airbags (?, shows up as an option)
Factory alarm
Sunroof
Invisible wing
DS2 wheels

I'd say 8/10 condition exterior, interior, and mechanically

Talk with your local BMW body repair specialist and find out if your area has a Diminished Value specialist, conversely call
Jeff Butler at Haury’s Lake City Collision
11514 Lake City Way NE
Seattle, WA 98125
206-365-1565

He may well be able to provide some guidance.

St. Lucie Appraisal obtains quotes from sales managers at multiple dealerships to arrive at diminished value figures. No shortcut formulas or algorithms that insurance companies just disregard. Good luck.

Contact an auto appraisal service. A body shop owner may know the market, but without the letters after his name it isn't worth the paper it is written on.

For a few hundred bucks an auto appraiser with a C.V. will be able to estimate the value before and after. Look in the back of magazines like Sports Car Market, or Hemmings.

I'll get you the name of the appraiser who completed my urS car a few months ago, he more than doubled their initial offer.
