What do you expect the write off value of my 2002 Mazda MX-5 to be?

I was rear ended yesterday in my 2002 Mazda MX-5. It's in excellent condition. As the boot floor has been pushed up, I fear it will be written off. It has the optional hard top. What do you think I should accept for it?

Depends on what the mileage was, any works that may have been carried out prior (prone to corrosion and engine problems for oil starvation), service history and spec. If it has been looked after as advised, and has no rust, and is average miles £1000 - £2500 dependent on the above. Based on what you have said it will definitely be a total loss. Best advice is look for comparable examples in the market place.
