hi there,

my mint condition 1986 325e with 71,000 miles (117,000 kms) was just written off after getting rear ended by an suv.

the insurance company (icbc) want to pay me $2,800 for it! i think this is too low.

any idea whether this is a fair evaluation. i'm not sure how anyone can just put a value on a car like that without examples as i cannot find a similar age car with such low mileage on the internet.

thanks for you help.

that sounds like a pretty fair offer, decent newer examples can be purchased privately for only $1000 on average. Buy it back from them if it can be saved, or get a new one and continue to love it.

unfortunately the 86 E is not a desirable model, if this was however an 89-91 iS you would see numbers like $5000 from the insurance company...

a MINT condition 86 Eta should sell private sale for about $2500, I think you did just fine....
