I was in a similar situation, to some extent. The insurance company lowballed the value. I caught them cheating and complained to the state insurance board. I did not accuse them of being unfair. I merely cited the exact insurance regulation and evidence. The insurance company did not want to respond to the insurance commissioner. What they then did was keep the lowball value but then drastically reduced the salvage value. They wanted me to keep the car and sell it for a profit.
I accepted and they had the complaint withdrawn. The net result was that the settlement was roughly fair, a little on the low side.
I listed it on Craigslist and found a buyer willing to fix it himself. The extent of damage was not that much. Saabs are having that problem. The resale value is so low that a door ding almost totals the car!
