    I'm not sure what the protocol in these types of situation usually is, but I googled my wrecked VIN number and a bunch of stuff popped up, including its sale listing. A little scary to be honest. Scrolling through the pictures the car looks exactly like I left it. That is, in pretty bad shape. However, I realized that there are still perfectly good parts on here and I want to make that known for anyone who might've been interested.

    - VG shark fin antenna (magnetic gray)
    - H&R lowering springs
    - Progress rear sway bar
    - Touring rims (might need to check the right front rim)
    - I also left LEDs in the license plate light
    - 8/10 tank of gas

    If you want any these parts and know how to get them (legally), go ahead and have at it.

    Interesting reading. I can't quite tell the package, but it appears your insurance company valued it at $7338 with 121k miles on it. I recently paid $7100 (plus taxes and fees) for an '08 Package 2 with 88k miles on it.

    So if anyone wants to hit me, go ahead!

    One buys the car, removes the desired parts, and then disposes of what is left.

    Lol. It was a touring model v (everything but leather). The way the insurance values the car is they give you the amount to purchase the exact same car you lost at a dealer. The funny thing is my mfd screen didn’t even work. Yeah they were generous and as far as a total goes, I was very fortuitous; no bodily injury and decent payout.
