The thing here is, he's paying for this SRT outright, he says. So if that's the case, will it in fact help him with a lower insurance rate?

Also, that SRT you posted, says $11,500 FIRM. I don't think you'll get him down to $10k, let alone 9. Especially since you'd be traveling a bit. He knows someone local would grab it for damn near asking price.

That's not bad considering what has happened. But it is high, and needs to be expected.

240 a month with 2 at fault incidents in the past few months isn't bad at all.

Also if your car is totalled, try to get as much as a down payment possible for the SRT-4. Atleast half of the price would be good, if not more...
No car payments FTW!

That's hard to come by.

Not the stock part.

But for the fact that it could have been converted BACK to stock from being run into the ground with aftermarket stuff.

If it's cheap enough and they total it, buy it back and part it out. If you can get it really cheap AND make your money back off of it (and thensome) it's worth it.

That's a number the insurance company comes up with based on the car, it's damage, it's value, etc.

wow.. so i guess i did more damage than i thought.. or maybe its just shop costs.. but hold on to your seats boys and girls..cause i just got the papers and the estimate to fix my neon would be $7000..and thats like just a rough estimate.. it could be more or who knows. im getting ready to call the claims people to see whats gonna happen and what parts i can keep and how much it would be to buy it back..ill let yo all know what they tell me. well im off to call them.
