Over 6k for the salvaged vehicle. Seems very high, so was not going to consider keeping it. They are offering 13k as actual car value, which I am considering contesting.

Anyways, if anyone is interested in the salvage at that level, please PM me.

Dave, just read through your blog experience with your S30 total. Thinking of going to the S40 as you did, or possibly all the way to SL40.

Yeah times have changed. I did not inquire as to salvaged value of mine... wish I would have but had zero interest in salvaging anything. Due to your damage being so localized, it would be easy to part out a significant portion of yours. But $6K is too much when most would take only the battery. It would be a gold mine with someone who needs battery and had a fender bender with same color car but that is a lot of requirements.

Take the money and run (after your negotiation, of course). If you really want a LEAF of the same vintage, you can find one for that kind of money, I would think...without the headache of dealing with a salvage title and repair risks.
