no insurance companys quote list price on parts, unless the part is available reman'ed or what they consider a high quality replacement (either aftermarket or used is available) generally those items will be doors, bumper covers and wheels.

now the body shops like OEM parts more, because they fit and the markup is higher on them as well (they get wholesale prices and can bill insurance for the list price)

i can tell you right now that your car is a write off though, i didn't see or read what you have but it sounds like most of your driveline should be in good shape. you prob have an excellent swap canidate on your hands, and i know of a 2.5 rs coupe looking for a swap thats available cheap.
