Off Topic / Re: and today you bought...

I bought a couple of Baldwin oil filters for the 328. Paid $23 each from IHK Services at Wingfield if anyone ever wants filters.

I tried fnding a UFI filter in Adelaide but got told all the Americans go for the Baldwins. A quick search found a lot of people using them on FChat.

While doing some research I found a guy on ebay US selling the same filter for $499.99USD for NOS with a Ferrari logo on it and a bit less for a used one.  :doh:

Buy it to be enjoyable for you, dont keep the k's low to make it more enjoyable for the next guy. I believe we were born to have as much fun as you can. Have as much fun as you can with your Lotus. When it stops being fun, park it and go back for more fun later or sell it.

Congrats man.  :thumbsup:

The buyer said a low price and the seller said it's insured for more than that. The buyer said you would be better off crashing it to claim the payout. Turns out the buyer was correct.

Disclaimer (This story is complete bull shit.)

LOL Do you think they read the story on the 20 yr old that set fire to the 458 before saying that?

Depends on what it's worth as a wreck.

Doesn't take much for an insurer to decide to write it off, pay it out and sell the wreck at auction, where someone will always overpay for it.

I'm sure the owner has got his fingers crossed for that to happen, depending what it's insured for. With a few recent crashes there might have been some sales that they can get an idea of what it will go for. A crash repair business will want to do a top job and charge appropriately for it so I guess its most likely that the insurance quotes will mean that its written off.

I suspect there is a lot more damage to the chassis than shows in photos. Have a look at the size of the tree stump it hit and realise that there was enough force to uproot it and the sewerage pipe buried under the ground.
I reckon the chassis rail in the impact area would be bent like a pretzel.
The reason I'm thinking it could be repairable from the insurance companies point of view could be that its insured for $200k and the repair might work out to be $120-150k. The insurance company would be looking at repairing it rather than pay him out.

There's been a few wrecked lately, there might be spares out there that make it possible or it could be twisted and everything broken underneath. It in the hands of the insurance gods now.

I thought it was the seller doing the "demonstration" when it happened?

I would most likely have a owner-only-driver policy and which owner would be dumb enough to let a stranger drives it? If that's the case, too bad for the seller... If it was a multi-drivers policy, then the person that crashed the car would be responsible, for the excess cost, the the seller got a payout...

I just read the UK article that TJB posted saying the owner was driving.... I couldnt read the one from the Adelaide paper as I had reached my limit on their site when it was posted. Sounds like he was doing his best Tokyo drift impression but failed..

The guy who was supposed to be buying the car has the longest hair Ive seen on a guy since the 1970's.

By the look of the damage it looks like the orange car would be quite repairable. If you were the owner you'd have to say your foot got wedged on the side of the accelerator peddle and take some blame for the "accident" rather than hit them with an "I dont know what happened," story.
