Unhappy Isabel Flood Damage

MY 2000 E320 was flooded to the bottom of the seats during Hurricane Isabel. My insurance company wants to send an appraiser to look at it. I am thinking that 48 hours in salt water probably wasn't to good for the car. I am hoping that it gets totaled.

If the Insurance company decides the car is repairable, what do I need to insist gets replaced. Right now the car will start, but I get ABS, ESP failures. The windows, locks, power seats are inop. The lights will not go out (until the battery dies).

Obviously, I am concerned about the long term reliability of a car that has had a lot of electronics immersed in salt water.
