A lot of what you're asking depends on your Dad's mechanical abilities
Two years ago I had the unfortunate experience
of totaling out a 2002 LT in Idaho,
I bought it back from State Farm for $1500
and spent another $500 getting it shipped back to Florida.
I'm a pretty good mechanic and retired so I had the time to dis-assemble and part out the LT, for me it was a fun and educational experience.
I sold most of my parts real cheap (half of what Beemer Bone Yard asks)
And I still came out several thousand dollars ahead.
I also usually sent stuff out before I got the checks
(as far away as Finland, Belgium and even Australia)
and never had an issue or a problem with anyone on this site.
If you or your Dad have any more questions I may be able to answer, don't hesitate, I like most everyone on this forum will do whatever we can to help.
