Unhappy Laguna IDE sport tourer valuation

Hi, I unfortunately had quite a bad RTA in my 52 plate Laguna IDE a few days ago, when I was hit by a double decker bus at 40mph, I was stationery and the car is a complete write off.
I was so impressed by how well the car protected my family and I that I will be replacing it with another Laguna.
I am finding it difficult to find a true valuation for my car, none of the sites I have looked at even list the IDE , does anyone know of anywhere that I might be able to get a price so that I can discuss it with my insurers.

Many thanks Bioman.

Oh dear, sorry to hear about your accident

Glad to hear that both you and your family are OK. The safety features were one of the things that attracted me to getting a Laguna II (that and having the Laguna I beforehand).

Not sure where you will be able to get the info you are after Im afraid. Im sure someone will be along soon with a bit more info.

If you can match your car up with one (or even better a number) that is being sold at a dealership, it should be a good enough evaluation. I believe you are supposed to get the cost of replacing like for like.

Glad you all got out safely

Yes. Pat is spot on. Don't accept any less than what it would cost them to replace it with an equivalent from a decent forecourt. The insurer is obliged to place you back in a situation at least equal to the one you were in when the accident happened. They will try and pay you less (probably offer peanuts at first just to size you up).

Remember, same year, same mileage, same condition (yours was totally pristine, of course) and same maintenance. If high mileage, check if cambelt is due and add value if yours had already been done but the one for sale hasn't. History is relevant too because of the problems these dci's can give you. So make sure you don't get a lemon. Insurers won't mind offering you a lemon.

Make sure you are happy with their offer before accepting it. You can try and charge them for history checks which can themselves be expensive.

Ehm... did you say your insurer? If you were hit when stationery, why not the other's insurer or is it just that your insurer will get it back from the other one? If you have legal cover, be prepared to take advantage of it if necessary.

a 2003 52 plate laguna 2.2 dci Initiale 5d with avage miles of 30k is worth around 7400 at a franchised dealer, 6900 at an indipendant, and about 5600 for a good condition private sale.
