    Next Project

    Well after the sad demise of my old B5 A4 RS4 look Saloon I will be looking to buy a B6 Quattro 1.8T (S Line prefer) and a Salvage/stolen recovered is high on my list.

    Why you ask well I'm looking to do the B7 RS4 conversion which will mean the car will be undergoing some major surgery so the above will fit the shopping list fine.

    So if you here of any please let me know as I'm sure the insurance money should not be too long away after they see the car.

    My car been STOLEN

    The problem with common sense, is that its not that common.

    Doesnt sound too bad there Doc.
    Are you planning on changing the Kit at all??
    I dont think you should go for a B6 though, it'll put us all to shame judging by your last project!!

    either way its not going to cost you alot to get it back in shape, will be cheaper than buying one right now.

    I say Game on!!!

    Surely a B6 S4 crash damaged or even a B7 RS4 might be a good price at the moment. I've seen a couple of B6 S4s damage repairable make absolutely nothing in a couple of salvage auctions. Even seen a couple of S6s make pennies

    Insurance have not paid out yet can take 4-6 weeks to sort out.

    I intend to move a lot of the parts from the B5 to the B6 like the RS4 brakes and hubs and Turbo and anthing else I can find that I can move.

    sorry maybe I should have been clearer, do you expect the payout to reflect the parts you upgraded or are you saying most of the upgraded parts except wheels are still on car as I have to admit I didnt read every single post as kinda said fair bit on the images you 1st listed fella.

    What are the implications of buying a car thats been registered as a CAT D? Apart from any repair work that is required, does it simply come down to the fact that they are more expensive to insure and can present a problem when selling on, due to the stigma attached?

    The Cat system is very odd. Goes a bit like this

    Cat 'A' Total Burn out - crushed
    Cat 'B, To be stripped of parts & then crushed
    Cat 'C' Repairs exceed pre accident value
    Cat 'D' Means it was a constructive total loss & repairs did not exceed its pre accident value.


    Essentially a Cat D will have been the repairs will have been above or close to the insurers threshold. For example, for Direct Line they use 70% as threshold. If the repair bill is lower than this, it is repaired, if not it is a write off.

    Cat Ds can be reintroduced to use, they need a version of an enhanced MoT test and a new V5 which states there write off status.

    I recently had a 1999 Alfa 156 Selespeed written off after a minor bump as the cost of parts, fitting and paint was 1600, the car was worth 2000. It was written off. A good independent repairer would have done it for about 500! Thats the way the cookie crumbles.

    I would have no problem buying a Cat D, but the price would take a big hit. In these difficult times look for a different car with no Cat at all. There are some proper bargains about.

    I could've told you that when I first saw it :anorak:

    Nice car you've found there but why was it a CAT D?

    We have just put a whole side on a 2003 2.0 Avant and the total wasn't more than 2500. I guess it must've failed a geo' because the rear wheel looks like it's taken quite a hit.

    Good luck with the car, I'm sure you'll love it.

    Are you crazy man!?! You have to be more careful what you say. I thought we were on the brink of another argument about whether decat will get an extra 0.394834825bhp out of your remap over a sports-cat!

    ...Anyway, back on topic - keep us posted doc - we're all rootin' for ya!

    Regards,

    Rob.
