How are car insurance write-off pay-outs calculated?

My car was written-off a few weeks ago. The other person has admitted liability and their insurer has agreed to payout. Can you tell me how they will calculate the pay-out price?

You are entitled to the market value of your vehicle at the point of loss. This should be a "retail" figure adjusted for specification, options, mileage, service history and condition.
