When they want to total a vehicle, the usually have a set of comps to compare. I was living in Abilene TX and they used inapproriate vehicles to compare, say a st trans vs auto. And they used prices form El Paso....No one from Abilene shops for cars in ElPaso! Did my own comps, and got them up form 2500 on wife's Elantra to $4000. Just have to out work them and blow up their basis for costing. Best set of numbers (valid) usually wins.
