Current negotiating position with 3rd party insurer Covea remains.
8k value, with a salvage amount of 31%, 2480.

I called my insurer Aviva and they confirmed that it's normal practice to split 31% as scrap value if total valuation is 8k.
(Aviva's would split between 25% and 28% in this situation though)

I'm inclined to leave D2 world for now due to lack of time to look after these lovely cars properly.

Q: Does anybody want this car for 2480 for parts (minus the number plate)? It's fully drivable.
My default position now is to take 8k and scrap the car.

If no one is interested, I'll strip all 'low hanging fruit' before scrapping of course.

Here's the spec, hopefully I haven't forgotten anything.
