I took a load of pics yesterday - will post later on.

Any tips for staying calm appreciated...


It's quite normal I believe for insurance companys first offer to be low.

Check out cars that are the same as yours , mileage, trim, etc see what they are offered for sale locally or the press/online etc, try and get documented proof of what they are selling for and use this in your negotiations with the insurance people.

Keep us updated on your progress we are here to help if we can .
