Wow, no one wanted to mention he could buy it back from the insurance and then tell him to file for buy back?

Even though it got soaked if it dried out I bet it could run enough for VW to cut a check.

You must have missed this comment then.

I'm not going to start the legal argument of you proposal but with all the hassles others are facing with totaled titles, this path seems like the most logical and perhaps quickest solution to getting the VW buyback money out of it. Of course, now that he pulled the ECU, I'm not sure it is eligible for the buyback. It sure as heck won't run without it.

Yeah that maybe was an option. I don't have time for that noise I'm tearing my whole house down at the moment. Picked up a CDI instead.

I you could have gotten it to run, and drive under it's own power, VW might have bough it back. I do not know if there is/was a deadline for choosing between restitution and buyback.

I lost mine to a reckless MB E350 driver, but was able to sell it back to VW after buying a new lower control arm and having it installed so it was "driveable". The buyback specialist didn't even drive it when I brought it in on a trailer. Didn't even start it.

We are still waiting to hear from the MB driver's insurance company after a 3rd offer back and forth on the settlement. I had medical bills and needed vestibular and cognitive therapy. Got bashed pretty hard. The initial offer didn't come close to covering pain and suffering, much less damages. We may end up in court on this. I am not going to accept less than a reasonable settlement. Darned insurance company.

Sorry to hear that Dub. I knew the car was toast but didn't realize you were banged up that badly.
