Apparently Recaro is no longer selling car seats in North America. Thought the insurance guy was full of it and I cannot find our car seat in any retail store online or Amazon.

For babies/toddlers, but for grown men, still good.

*sigh of relief*

Sorry about the car. Glad you are okay though! Hopefully the damage is covered, isn't too bad, and doesn't have a lasting impact on you or the car. I've had a hit and run and a rear-end on my GTI both not-at-fault and I still see the marks on the car and it bugs me to no end.

Stinks. They were super cool.

We sold both of ours to PCA members when Jr. outgrew his.

Don't let the insurance bully you into anything.

They will push HARD. Went through it with wifey's accident last summer. They're going to lowball the crap out of you, push the "Just sign this right here right now and it'll all be over today!" crap. When you refuse, they'll give you the hard line about, "Okay, but then it'll have to be transferred to another department and that could take weeks, sir."

Ok fine, let it take weeks then. Meanwhile, you're still in their rental car, racking up their bill. They'll threaten to take it away... ride it out, then say, "Ok fine take it, I don't care." Tell them you have another car to drive (even if you don't) to suck that wind out of their sails.

Hold strong. Make sure your comps have EVERY option your car has (yours was pretty loaded wasn't it?) You just dumped like $3,000 in maintenance into it too, didn't you? I'm pretty sure you did. DSG service, alignment, oil change, computer coding work. Don't argue with me, yes you did.

With wifey's deal, they started off with a $36k offer and a *really* hard sell to accept the $36k. They had a bunch of bullshit comps that weren't close (they had to be the cheapest examples in the country.) We fought and they came up to $38k, then did the "Ok you're gonna have to be transferred to the other department then if you don't take this check right now.... that could take weeks.... don't you just want the check now?"

In the end we got $49k out of them to replace the car. No BS either. All I did was give them comps and otherwise just refuse their BS lowballs.
