This would obviously be something you'd do yourself, not through your insurance company. Maybe if your insurance company got involved, they could get you a little more, but I don't know.

As for buying it back, every state has regulations on who (if anyone) can buy back a vehicle with a salvage title. From skimming through the Texas laws on this (see here), I'm not sure that you do in fact need a salvage vehicle dealer license. See the exemptions at the top of page 4-3. You might want to inquire further about this.
Thanks for the input! I guess I will have to find someone over there that knows what the hell they are talking about then.

I say take the money and RUN!!! Seriously, get your trunk and whatever other mods can be salvaged and move on to the ZCP you've been talking about. You and I both know the problems that car has encountered (mostly not your fault of course), but that amount is more that I ever thought you'd get for your car.
I am really leaning towards the RS4 now. It is certainly a change, but not sure if it is one I will like. Anybody know where I can get a test drive in Houston? Apparently all the dealerships here are fresh out.
