Hi All, I have to present a few ads to my appraiser for cars comparable to my own for "market valuation". It's very hard to explain that no two cars are alike, and finding a comparable 2002 or 1600 to my late 1600 are basically non-existent. People who have good cars typically don't sell them. They live in garages and in private collections. It's extremely difficult finding a comparable 1971 BMW 1600 similar to my own. Mine was very modified (mechanically), but left alone aesthetically, with a substantial amount of rehab and restoration thrown in. For those who don't know the car, you can read about it's life under my ownership here: http://www.bmw2002faq.com/topic/151207-just-in-time-for-summer-1971-bmw-1600/. My appraiser friend suggested that I also find comparable 2002 ads, as the differences between the 1600s and 2002s aren't big enough to neglect a decent 2002 as well. He said he would use it in his analysis. Both he and I would like to wrap up the appraisal process by next week. As an incentive to help, I will publicly disclose the final price that I accept from my insurance, as well as a general breakdown of the negotiation process. I think it will be very helpful to some as our car's values are increasing, and getting top-dollar for your car shouldn't be an impossible task. If, like me, you weren't insured under a classic car policy (stated and agreed-value), you will have to negotiate with your insurance provider for the true value of the car. For some, this is a daunting experience, but for me, it's actually quite fun. I've been very successful with this process for past cars, but the 2002 is new for me as it is probably the most "expensive" classic I've had to negotiate for. If you can post great ads of current and past cars for sale/sold, I would be very grateful. Please no tii cars. Mine was a carb'd car and I don't want to get greedy on this valuation. The price difference between carb'd and MFI 2002s are quite different. Thank you -Ryan Danco
