California has a law that you can insist on OEM replacement parts in body work, and you can pick the shop, even if the insurance is paying. Other states have similar laws - you should check the Bureau of Automotive Repair in your state.
As far as what they will pay to total your car, it is negotiated, and usually starts at retail and goes down. Evidence of repairs, maintenance, and upgrades count for you as long as you have receipts. Cross your fingers they don't total your car though - the last of the Integras were great cars.

I am hoping they do not total it. Other then front bumber, hood, and MAYBE 1 fender, they think there was no frame or engine damage. The radiator was broken though. With only 27,000 miles i would take my chances getting the car back. It is maintained well and unfortunately just spent over $300.00 changing fluids, wires, etc..Have eveey record from when we bought it at 15,000 miles. Just hope the damage is not 75% of value, that is rule of thumb they will use in fixing vs. totaling....Thanks for the response!

If they total the car, ask your insurance if you can buy a car back for a lot less, a few hundred bucks. Do some
repairs and apply for a salvage title.

1. ads like that are often wrong - it is a local dealer who probably has 15 cars he is juggling, and was going by memory when he wrote the ad and got it wrong. Check the car out in person to be sure.
2. Is it a Canadian car? Is "160000 clicks" 160K km, or about 100K miles? For a 6 year old 100K-mile car, $9000 might be an OK price, a little on the highish side and that's all. And besides, are those Canadian dollars?

lol, i feel so smart :S(not) thanks a lot, i called them they said its 1.8 so probably a mistake, but i have another question, if i go see the car, does the engine have whats it is written on it, and whats the name that comes on that engine , do you have any idea? i think it should say honda v tech or somthing for the engine that comes with it?no?would it say 1.8L?....
Number 2- my math skills are bad, first of all, it is a canadian car, 160 000km milage, and its 8000 CDN so i guess that would be around 7200 U.S..lol...im so sorry about the confusion nippononly, but yea i guess you were on the right track, i just confused you... THANKS A LOT anyways
p.s- if i was to put leather seats and a sunroof on it, do you have any idea how much id be putting on that$$? Thanks

Wow, you don't ask a lot of questions, do you?! LOL
OK lessee, it's an SE, so it's NOT A VTEC. It will say Honda on the engine cover. In the U.S., every car has an emissions sticker under the hood (usually attached right to the underside of the hood) which will show the engine series including the displacement. Don't know about Canada, but rest assured, it's a 1.8!
$7200 US for a 100K Integra LS, six years old, in good condition, would be a good price. If it's an independent dealer, ask about the possibility of taking it to your own mechanic for a check-out.
The prices for aftermarket leather and moonroof vary widely by quality and region. You could easily spend over $2000 around here where I live, but would it be worth it? Yeah, probably, if you are going to keep it a while. Better to make it the way you want it right up front.

Followup to above: The car has $7000.00 damage. The insurance comapny WILL NOT total it. Thye say it is worth almost $10,500.00, Ins. Co. says it needs $8000.00 to total. Body shop says that is max damage. Ins. Co. says they will give me $7000.00 - $500.00 ded. for $6500.00, body shop says he will give me about $1000.00 for salvage, it will give me a total of about $7500.00 or other option is to let shop fix the car, BTW, they say there is no frame.....This is a tough call...
