    2.0 SRI TURBO 2002 Limited Edition

    Good Evening,

    I am sad to say that recently my pride and joy car was written off. Not my fault im happy to say, but none the less totally gutted.

    My insurance company is trying to fob me off with an offer of 3k which is unacceptable. I wondered if anyone could tell me how many of the 500 were made in each colour? As mine was red, this may offer some leverage.

    I had heard that 20/500 were red etc. I have spoke to Vauxhall direct, but they need to speak with their marketing team to confirm.

    If anyone could help with this? Link appreciated, I would be most greatful.

    Many thanks for any replies

    Yea 20 where made in red. Best you can do is find adverts for other SRI turbos for sale and show them what they are worth in the real world.

    ps you wont get any extra off them for it being red

    White is the new Black

    Thanks, basically they've sent me examples of same model in black. But they are all about 3500-4900. If I could show that perhaps if red is more rare, this may increase there payout. As if a car is more rare, then its not as easy to replace! They should pay out for a Red one, not a black one right?

    Push for the 4.9k if they have sent you that price. That is the most you will ever get.

    ps I have a red one too lol

    But in order to push for 4.9k, I will need to backup my claim. Im not taking any less than 4k! Do you know of anywhere I could get a colour list? You know what im getting at by the colours?

    I did hear in Black was the most common?? Surely if say 100/500 were black, this will increase the value of the red ones??

    I hear what your saying fella. It just makes sense that something that is more difficult to come by, is more sort after and pricey? I dont want to be fobbed off by my insurance company with 3k saying, oh you can by one in Black. Course I can, they arent rare!! I just need something official that I can send to them stating the colour range
