Hi , as you can see I’m a vw driver. But I have mad respect for the RS ! I’m posting this for my son. He crashed and totaled his 17 rs. Left side raked from front fender to rear fender, body and pillar damage around doors is severe. The car protected him very well and he walked away from a serious wreck. The car has around 35000 miles. The engine bay is intact and engine could be started. Looking to sell would lik to know what you guys think it would be worth.

If he had kept up his insurance I wouldn’t even be involved in trying to sell it. Lol. So he owes money on it and he’s just trying to sell it as parts

How do you even get a loan on this car without comprehensive coverage, isn’t that a requirement for most auto loans today?
Good point! But he could **** up a wet dream , so He is an offshore lobsterman. Makes good money but doesn’t pay attention to ****. He probably had seven notices from geico or whoever

An expensive lesson for sure. Glad to hear your son is okay.

You would get way more for parting it out, especially if the engine is operational. Really totaled ones go for a few (2-3k) thousand at auction.

Well there are all kinds of scams I guess. I’m just not about anything like that.
I figured it would be worth more parted out just that I would be the one doing the “parting”.
Idk. Anyone need some right side doors. Engine? Trans?
I live in southern New Hampshire.

The lights are worth quite a bit too. $2k new just for the fronts if undamaged. Was it modified? The aftermarket parts usually sell for half or more of their retail prices.

If you have some patience you can recover some money, but nowhere near what your kid likely owes on it.

Good information. Thanks. No he didn’t do any mods that I know of.
