You may remember from this topic
That my car was written off and I was awaiting a pay-out figure. My car spec was as follows:
2003 53 Reg
Vectra SXi DTi
Full Service History
Immaculate Condition inside and out
This morning I got a call from Admiral saying we are going to offer £5000 for the car
Imo £5000 is waay out. The guy told me he was going to send an advert from the auto trader and "Unless i can find a reason why I cant buy this car, £5000 is how much they'll give me". I asked him for the details so I could look it up.

I called the dealer and he told me the car had some wing paint imperfection, plus it's silver not black. So I called the insurance up, got back to the same guy and said £5000 is way under-value, plus the car is silver and black is more rare/sought after and worth more. He kept saying the colour doesn't make a difference to price.
After 15 mins of browsing and debating he uppped the amount to £5300 and said this is the glass's guide price and said he won't go over it. I told him I wasn't happy and will think about it.
Basically need some advice guys, what do you think? Is £5300 too little? If so, what can I do/say to increase it.
The closest match to my car is this one.. third down:
2003 53 Reg VAUXHALL Vectra 2.0DTi SXi (trade)
- 86,000 miles
5 Doors, Manual, Hatchback, Diesel, 86,000 miles, Black. ABS, Adjustable steering column/wheel, Air conditioning, Alloy wheels, Central locking, Computer, Cruise control, Driver airbag, Electric mirrors,
The insurance guy said this was over-priced and there's no way he'd go £1000 over his original offer.
Any help/advice appreciated. Thanks
