Wow!!! That's very good info. Thanks qbrozen.
Seems like Eastern US prices are very much in line with prices here in torontoland.
Seems incredible - when you consider the Ultra Prem RX listed for 62K + TTL when new - a good 20% more so than in the US.

Touareg: They should have totalled it. I can only take a WAG at about $8k now. A clean one would be around $11k-$11.5.
Thanks Q, my friend is still keeping options open on trade-in but she's been wondering why they didn't just total it. Oh well, now it's time to decide whether to keep it until something really expensive (and uninsured) happens. Thanks again.

Dang it! 3 months ago, I was looking for a sporty $8K car!!

higher miles than anything else that has gone through. I'd guess around $7500.

Roadburner - I understand the ST, the Boxster, the Wrangler (you have 1 already, you want a 2nd?)
I'm sure the Abarth drives nice enough for you to consider it, but that is one funky looking vehicle.

Well, the ST sold(in retrospect it was really a lateral move- more features than my MS3, but in all other aspects very similar. The Wrangler plan was attacking the problem from a different angle; sell the 2002, MS3, and Wrangler and get a 2012-2013 model(the 3.6 is vastly superior to the 3.8). I'd drive it for work the last 18-20 months of my job at which point I'd flip it to my son and sell the X3. I would then begin my search for a Z4 M Coupe. 15i M sport, Cayman S, etc.
As for the Abarth, what can I say? I just like it; as Road & Track described it, it's a "motorized barstool on crack." The car I'm looking at is identical to this one except that it has the upgraded sound system:
And it would be cheap to run; 10k mile service intervals and reasonably priced 17" tires. When Jeremy Clarkson reviewed it for Top Gear he said it reminded him of the original GTI(the Mk I)- light, tossable, just enough power- and I think he's right.

That black/black wheels/red interior is better looking than the other Fiats I've seen on the road. Those seats look super supportive.
I'm interested in your thoughts on the latest Wrangler? Which way would you go with that? 2 Door or 4 Door? Sport, Sahara, or Rubicon? Stick or Auto? I like this Wrangler idea better than the Abarth.
