Front and rear suspension damage. Damages might be close to 30k from what I was told.

Do your research
Get your own estimate
Know your costs and have the paperwork to prove it
Get lots of photos/videos of the car, once it is gone or unavailable this is going to be your only record and way to prove the aftermarket parts
Be calm and respectful when dealing with other parties
Don't sell your time for having to deal with this short - keep track of time (dates and times), time taken off from work and vacation used. I've never gotten push back with properly documented time costs

Take a deep breath and hang in there.
Thanks. It's been 2 weeks already and still no estimate from them. I was giving a ball park of almost 30k. I have receipts. Everything brand new.

Take deep breath and relax, not all insurance companies are that bad. I have dealt with multiple total losses and all have been fair. Getting a lawyer involved should be your last resort.

You will most probably get retail value plus some or all your brand new upgrades if you can show receipts. So, no, you will not have your car back, and they will pay you for replacing it with a used one, but that is life and ultimately it's the maximum of their liability.

A positive is that it is a dealership, and if they are smart, they can get you in into a CPO in great condition, payoff your upgrades, and have a happy ending to this headache.

Best of luck and hope this gets resolved to your satisfaction.
I agree with total loss. I really wouldn't want the car back. I don't think I would feel safe in it.

Considering you are not sure you ever want this car back (understandable after such a considerable damage....) you may want to "force" them into suggesting alternatives in this regard.
Still waiting for insurance to come out. The other driver insurance hasn't "claimed responsibility." Based off that I'll know how to proceed. And yes even if it's repairable I wouldn't want the vehicle back. Vehicles are never the same after repair

Even if they repair it for free, are they going to give you tens of thousands in cash for depreciation? Obviously no. You may still have to sue them for that.
