Meaning, a total loss for a bmw 7 series, would mean a return tix in first from the usa to tlv?   ;-)

 no a BMW7 means a tkt straight to jail as no CC CDW will cover such a car, and till they actually get the $$ out of You they probably will get a Block on you leaving the Country

 not so much a certain type of car but I think its $25k is the max

 it does exclude the very expensive types.

 true but I dont think they check to see what the retail price is over there but know what it is over here, could very well be if the car is completely totaled then it might be a problem, but the max I had as Damage was some $3500 and it was paid w/o any questions. Some kid decdied to do an illegal U-turn on Rehov Aza and I broadsided him, car still worked and changed it the next day

I've seen $50K on almost all my cards.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

But then, why would you need 3.5k either? If it was his fault, shouldn't his insurance cover your damage?

yudel shain is an extreme kashrus alarmist. discuss all kashrus concerns with your local rabbi, don't make decisions based on what he posts on his site...
i wish i knew what i was doing...

its actually an interview between the jewish press and yechiel spira. if you want ill find the jewish press link. you obviously didnt read it if youre saying that theres something to ask a rabbi about. i cant imagine any rabbi saying its ok to eat something w/o a hechsher
here is the original article http://www.jewishpress.com/pageroute.do/43783
in the future please read something before making a ridiculous comment. its a great disservice.

I didn't read what you linked to, i'm just saying that Yudel shain, whose site was originally the link, is not at all someone to rely on. just visit http://yudelsmistake.blogspot.com/ and see where a guy in a week or so, caught him on so many inconsistencies. I dont think thats ridiculous...
i wish i knew what i was doing...
