    I just went once again with Greenlight. Not really sure what the fuss is about. Your insuring for market value. So isn't your perceived agreed value meant to be market value anyway. Anything more and your trying to play the system. Which is exactly why they have bailed on that aspect.

    If I crash 147 tomorrow. Go online and there are 10 adverts for 115k cars at £8k. Then that's what I will be arguing for as market value to replace my car.

    Yes but they don't seem to realise that the Trophy is a different value to a 182, and a lot of ins co,s only pay out on the 182 values...
    Last time I looked there were only 4-5 cars for sale... And unfortunately not at £8K / 115K milers.

    So do you have a specific agreed value policy, or market value?

    If the latter and the worst happens then it appears it gets even worse as you try to argue the value of your car. There have been at least two threads in the past ~18 months where Trophy owners have had massive issues getting anything more than a few thousand pounds.

    Market value and the car is stated as a trophy not a 182.

    It's just about the the size of the argument your willing to have.

    And of course I was jesting about £8k car on 12k.

    I see what you're saying but others have really struggled having that very same argument. I'm not aware it's worked out well for anyone, and I think Dan even went to the ombudsman.

    Fortunately I have an agreed value policy but to each his own.

    Let's just all agree not to crash then it becomes academic :wink:

    Agree Tim,
    Appreciate some have immaculate examples worth top money,
    Some have honest examples,
    Some have cheap as chips examples ( where both of mine have started)
    Some Are weekend toys so can have a long proud of argument if needed. Other might need quick payments to replace a daily.

    So your appetite for resolution is always going to be different.

    Quote was for £295 before the multi car discount - my other car has been insured with them on an agreed valuation for over 10 years, may help a bit......

    I am going to resurrect another thread as I just tried to swap my insurance for the Fiesta ST to the Trophy but AXA will not insure a Trophy so got to shop around now. I have a multi vehicle classic policy with FJ so will ring Monday & get a quote with them first I think. Let you know how I get on.

    My renewal with Greenlight would only agree the value at £6.5k so I've gone to Keith Michaels.

    More expensive premium but agreed value more aligned to my requirements.
