accident nightmare as well - adjuster questions

hey all

recently got into huge accident - its a total write off - i am 0% liable
drove a 98 v6 accord coupe w 220 000 km on it
i had a new transmission, front tires, timing belt + water pump, front light harness, new battery


my question is how do i negotiate with the adjuster?
anybody with previous experience can help me?
how much should i expect to get?

thanks
vic

Black book value I think unless you had extra coverage for any extras of value the car had. New parts added becuase of maintenance and repairs probably don't mean much.
