Business insurance

I have a claim against my former employer for breach of contract. I was terminated without real cause and am owed almost 800k. I have tried to negotiate a settlement with my former employer, but he offered 15 cents on the dollar. I turned it down.

His insurance company has gotten involved because he also defamed me, materially interfered with my earnings, and caused significant emotional distress from his abusive behavior. I was told by my attorney that his insurance carrier’s attorney recommended that the insurance company settle with me.

My ex employer is extremely stubborn. It’s a small business, and the principal’s personality is very similar to Trump. He thinks he’s right about everything and would rather spend a million dollars fighting a lawsuit than settling at 250k.

However, with the insurance company involved, his losses are capped at his deductible. So my question is twofold:

1) What is the typical deductible for a small business (under 30 people)? 2) If the insurance company agrees to settle, but he does not want to pay his deductible, will I still get paid out by the insurance company?

Performance Parts for 09′ Passat CC 3.6L

I’ve had my Passat CC for quite a while now and I’m really interested in tuning it. What kind of performance parts do you recommend that I start off with or something that you would do if you owned the same vehicle. What kind of tunes do you recommend? (Unitrontic, APR, etc…). Do you recommend intakes, an aftermarket exhaust?

Thanks!

Window tint a good or bad idea?

Im thinking about getting window tint. I live in PA and the legal limit is suppose to be 30% or sp i think. My back window has no tint at all and i would like to get 20% tint on it and 30% on the my driver and passenger doors etc.. so how likely would i be to get pulled over? I don’t think that’d be too much but who knows. Would i be okay with it?

Would you pay your mechanic to look at a car if it still had 2 years under warranty but was a manufacturer buyback?

Sorry if this is a dumb question.

The manufacturer buyback was apparently because of a malfunctioning sensor. I saw the document. It was fixed.

How do you do this? The car is not CPO it’s a generic dealership. It’s also ~50 miles from my mechanic.

Any issues are taken care of by the warranty right? I’m just not sure I’m thinking through all the scenerios.

Fake Badges on Cars

So I recently found out that a car I recently bought has fake badges. Luckily it’s not a major fake, and I’ll claim responsibility for not doing my research, but, I wonder how big of an issue this is in the car community? Is this something I need to actively keep my eyes open for in the future? The person I’d purchased my car from seemed to be something of an enthusiast and certainly didn’t appear to be the run-of-the-mill scammer hoping to profit off other’s lack of knowledge.

I’ve seen a few blatant lies around- when browsing craigslist for my current car I noticed one other example similar to this- only that was a vehicle being sold as the IS-F (which it certainly wasn’t)

The car I bought was a 2007 Lexus IS350 “AWD” and have recently learned that it most certainly is not All-Wheel-Drive (shoutout to u/gamebrigada for informing me on this) Had I done my research I’d have seen that AWD was not available for the 350 until 2010.

Whining noise coming from engine bay?

So I’ve got a 93 Dodge Dakota v6 3.9 engine. I’ve been doing some extensive work on it and had it finally running really good. Anyway I was driving it around one night and decided to press the “pedal to the metal” and heard a clinking noise. I checked the engine while it was still running and heard a whining noise. There also seems to be a gas smell and the engine has a slight shake and low rpms. What the heck did I do to my baby!? When I turn it on it starts whining after about 20 seconds. As soon as I turn it off it makes a small clicking noise from the same area. Any help would be appreciated!

New to driving on snow. All Seasons vs. Winter Tires

I drive a 2014 Merc E350 4matic. We had about 2 inches of slush today and I was sliding all over the place today even at low speeds. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m new to driving on snow or if possibly getting a different tire might be the right way to go during the winter.
Currently: 245/40ZR18 97Y Michelin Pilot Sport A/S3
Recommendation: Michelin X-ICE XI3 245/40R18 XL
Will the XL’s fit since I already have the slightly large AMG rims? Will it make a difference? Or am I a buffoon? I’m up in the Rockford, IL area for reference and have to drive at odd times of day/night due to my profession/school.

What are good places/websites to look for a 30 year old engine?

I drive a 1987 Mercedes 190e 2.6L, but the engine is pretty much dead. Like maybe 200 miles left on it before it quits working entirely. I’m looking to get a new(er) motor for it, either another 2.6L or a 3.0L/3.2L (mechanically the exact same engine), but I’m not having much luck finding good engines. Help?

Car rubs when going over long bumps

I have an 03 Focus ZX3, when I go over short bumps or potholes the car acts normally and is very stiff, but when I go over a long hill or crest the right front end sounds like it’s rubbing when the suspension decompresses after hitting the peak of the bump or small hill. Any ideas of what it could be?

Is Corvette a Grand Tourer?

I just wanted to get other members of /r/cars opinion about this. I grew up around Corvettes (C4, C6) and always considered them to be “Sports cars”. Now that I have my Honda though, I’ve felt a bit differently about Corvette. C6 can run circles around my car as far as acceleration, top speed, power, etc, but it just feels….big basically after getting used to the Honda.

I saw a C6 driving down the road today and thought, C6 is a Grand Tourer IMO. It’s not 2+2, but its luxurious, refined, quiet at times, big for what it is, and the hatch area can carry a decent amount of stuff. I feel like Corvette is a really fast/sporty and sort of small Grand Tourer.

What are your thoughts on Corvette? Would you consider it a “Sports car” or a “Grand Tourer”? And why?
