my lloyds insurance renewal notice came through and it went up from £450 to £550 with 9 years NCD. Shopped around and went with Hastings for £270 py. as I was going through the application i changed the value from £1495 to £10k (just had front wings replaced, and almost full paint job of other panels (i know i won't get money back but it looks a lot nicer now anyway) and took out the policy. just received the docs and it has put the value back on £1495. Parkers seems to think it is closer to £4-5k in value (which you won't be able to get it for at the moment) what do other R129 owners put down as value for their car? £1495 for a very nice R129 seems to be taking the mick a bit. I guess this means the slightest accident = write off?
