Car is totaled for sure.


As for your list, pretty hard to go wrong with any of those. I'd throw the new Audi RS3 on there. I'm a big fan of the F Type. If you don't need 4 doors or a back seat, it's the funnest car on your list for sure.

UPDATE: I talked to the adjuster, car has $18,xxx in damage. My car's value in fresh state is 25k. So, that's around 76% in damage.

He asked me what my overall intent with the vehicle was (I had him elaborate) and he asked if I wanted repair/total. I said total because I don't feel comfortable driving, knowing what it had been through.

He said at this time, he doesn't see 'much' underbody damage, but some suspension work in the left side. Not entirely sure though.

Waiting out USAA at this time...

Yeah, I?m the OP of that Thread. Paying $704 base for an R.

$805 isn?t bad, no? But don?t base your decision on price alone. The Jag is a heavy cat and IMHO not on par with the Germans in terms of fit/finish and has some other quirks. Some days I miss my M3ZCP, but the Jag has so much emotion.

Get the F-type. It is by far the most exotic of the vehicles on your bucket list.

M4 is cool and all, but it's just so refined/isolated that it barely feels like a BMW to anybody who was used to E-platform Bimmers.

What about a Boxster/Cayman?

Just read through your thread...I'm dumbfounded that you got that deal on a $100K car, that too with $0 down!

Any idea of what types of deals are going on V6 'verts?

805 isnít, considering I havenít negotiated. Iíve seen so many deals that are better than that, so Iím hoping for something better. We will see.

I test drive an M240xi. I liked it. It didnít wow me. It might be on my list though.

Always loved the Caymans. Just doubt I could find one in my price range. Not sure what they lease for.

An F-Type w/out the V8 just isn't the same IMHO. And the coupe is just so much sexier than the vert, but that's just me on both fronts. Guys are tuning the V6 and are getting good results. Plus it's lighter!

Where did you get yours? And how did you haggle? Just doing mine through email. Disappointed with my first two offers. Wife gave me a budget of 725 a month, and Iíd like to be at it a bit below it.

V6 looks pretty exciting. My Mustang, while feeling powerful, doesnít feel 4.6 seconds powerful. The Jagís supercharger might illicit they feeling.

F Type is definitely leading the list. AWD, better gas than my Mustang, amazing interior, amazing exterior, Vette like comparisons, and cheap lease deals. Definitely heavily leaning. Just hoping to get a deal in my favor. Contacted the dealers near me, as many as I can.

Emailed a ton of dealers, including the Buffalo one...not getting anything close. Best is the 805. I got as high as 1200 with 4 grand down on a 99k msrp. 😂

True. I only have one tire to pull me through a corner. I try not to ride in the rain, but have gotten caught a few times. Iím no Valentino Rossi or Marc Marquez, thatís for sure.
