i bought a KE laser from auctions, had been hit in the back
- paid $450 for it
- new hatch was $50
- new tail light $45
- rear windscreen wiper motor $15
- c/v joint & boot $cant remember but not much
- paint & supplies $150 approx
- time: many many hours
- rego $400

drove it around for a couple of months then sold it for $2700
All you need to know is what its worth on the market, and how much is involved in fixing it. If you havent done any before, it would usually pay to double your estimate of repair costs....
Just remember that write offs are usually there because it was going to cost them too much to fix it...so unless youre doing it yourself, or youre after the parts its usually not worth your while
A HUGE THANKYOU TO THOSE THAT ATTENDED THE 2004 FORD FORUMS CHRISTMAS CRUISE!!!

Late last year I bought a 2000 model AU2 wagon with 90,000km. Got it for $15500 including 10 months reg, cost around $492 to get registered in my name though (damn stamp duty). Would definitely buy from the auctions again, but the next car i want (EF/EL Fairmont Ghia or XR8) come up very rarely at Auctions in ACT.
