    i paid £1900 for a W reg 1.8T Quattro Sport, which are generally more saught after than the FWD versions.

    Perhaps 1500?

    search the web for similar age condition ones for sale and present that to the insurers.
    I wrote off a Rover 220 coupe, they wanted to give me £700. managed to get £1700 out of them as I proved beyond doubt that a replacement car (which is what they are paying you for) was significantly higher than the Glass/Thompsons book price.

    I paid £1900 for a '98 1.8T in excellent condition with 80k on the clock ~3 weeks ago. I think I got a good deal so I would hold out for at least 2k depending on mileage. You'd struggle to replace it for less than 2.5k probably.

    I would search autotrader & pistonheads for the same year and model car, add up the prices of all the ones you find, and divide by the number of cars there were to obtain a true average of the asking price, then base your valuation on that mate.

    Assuming I get top price for all the stuff I just listed on eBay, I'm set to get £1400 for mine... which I sold in bits. :p

    Yeah... sold it through PH. I always sell my cars on there. A decent set of pictures sells the car for you.

    The last 3 cars I've sold I've had payment sent through before they've even seen the car in the metal. Madness!
