RichardC Posted March 30, 2017 Report Share Posted March 30, 2017 A couple of months back my 2001 S2 Elise was written off in an accident :-(. There were no other vehicles involved so I am claiming off my own comprehensive policy. My insurers originally offered £4500 as payout for the market value for the car, but I've managed to negotiate this up to £5250, from which they will not budge. I can't make my mind up if this is a fair valuation or not. The car was high mileage (170000!) and this is the main reason that they are giving for the low offer. However it was in good mechanical and cosmetic condition; it had had an new front clam and crash-structure fitted around a year ago at a cost of £4900 to the insurance company of the driver that reversed into it back then. I'd be grateful for any opinions as to whether I should be accepting £5250 for the car. I haven't seen any roadworthy Elise advertised for sale less than £8000. Thanks for any advice given. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
