All E90s with a manual are hard to find unless you buy an M3.

We didn't take the "totaled" buyout on the Prius because we love the car, but now realize that was stupid. 9+ year old car - for $15K we could have had a brand new one (with new batteries, larger, better mileage).

Yep, that's a great point. Main reason we're planning on shelling out more $$$ for a newer car...

I looked for a long time for a decent manual E90 before I found one (though I was looking for a sedan). As Jazz said, they're difficult to find.

Sorry to hear about the car, though. Something to ask your agent is if you use option #2, will this show up as a claim that could make your rates go up...

you are always better off if the car is totaled. especially with an old car.

let your insurance provider handle it for you, that's why you pay them the big bucks, it's their job.

Finally took the car in today. $6000 in damage...not enough to total the car. Sonofab****.

I was even letting myself get all excited; my neighbor has a 2000 M Coupe with 20k miles he wants to sell.
