    cheers andy

    totally gutted it was mint, and only my occasional weekend driver

    it does have the ring stivker on the back in case any one sees it


    but i have pretty much given up hope now as the cctv the police have of them was no good

    what is the value i would expect to get from the insurance do you think, i am dreading this response but guess they have dropped massively as all vauxhalls do

    would i be lucky to get 6 do you think ?

    49k on the clocks and every optional upgrade except lights

    Does it have an odd wheel on the front?

    Looks more like a Zafira one. If it is that would stand out in a set for sale.

    You will get what ever it costs to replace like for like! You may have to do battle with your insurance company for a while but if they wont play ball you just tell them to find you a replacement. A good idea is to start looking in Autotrader and the like and keeping all the adverts that are of similar cars (if there are any) as this also helps when you come to negotiate with them. At the moment though in this area there are loads of these high powered vauxhalls being stolen every week. They must be being broken for the parts which is worse for you as the chances of getting the car back are tiny. I really feel for you, i know how i would feel it it was my car. I hope everything works out with the insurance company and is sorted quickly. Jx
