Write Off Value

Car recently had a run in with a 12 ton lorry whilst parked up at work, only thing is the insurance (hasting's) have said that there's a 90% chance it will be a total loss, needs front wing,bumper,headlight,grill and bonnet.
just hoping that they don't take the p#@s when it comes to making me an offer,

if anyone has any idea what its worth it would be a great help as a bartering tool

car is a mk3 2.0 tdci 130 6 speed with 132600 miles, fsh, new clutch with dmf and no other damage atall
many thanks

Looks Like I've Possibly Been Stitched Up :(

loks like i may have been ripped off a bit with my recent purchase,


bought a 2004 mk3 2.0 tdci 130 mondeo on saturday morning and now it looks like the clutch slave cylinder has gone!!!!!!!!!!!   

(clutch sat on the floor with no resistance at-all, loss of fluid from reservior and unable to select any gears)

since it was a private sale and had driven fine up until this morning it looks like its going to be a bit of a pricey fix :(


anybody got any idea how much i could be looking at for a complete replacement (DMF, clutch + cylinder)



any answers would be gratefully received.

having just inherited a caravan from the in-laws i am going to be changing to a bigger car to tow with,


i currently have a mk1 focus tddi which used to tow my trailer just fine full of camping gear (plus the entire contents of the wardrobe for the better half lol) that was until the shaft decided to break up and chew half the gearbox at the same time  :angry:


thinking of going for a mk3 2.o tdci mondeo salloon or estate but can't seem to find out what they are like to tow with,



any knowledge would be very much appreciated
