    It’s a E320 cdi w211 salon but v5 has it as estate , why is this, is it because it’s a model that the seat drop .

    I suppose it depends what the insurance company sees at their end as far as when they bring up your cars details on their screens , I don't know what information sources they use

    It’s saloon on v5 my insurance showed estate spent all afternoon trying to sort it , in the end they refunded my money and I had to change companies. Strange every site brings it up as saloon but Hastings only can get it as an estate.

    The VIN is definitive.
    Look at the VUN. AAABBBCCCxxxxx
    AAA is Mercedes (Daimler Benz etc), BBB is the model major type, CCC is the model subtype. The subtype is usually different for estates, cabriolets etc.

    For example WDBW10262 is Germany, Daimler Benz, model 210, sub model 262. The 262 denotes E240 estate.

    Yes hold my hands up my fault there, the v5 is saloon but Hastings insurance argue it’s a estate yet all other companies I contacted shows it as salon.

    My last car,full fat range rover supercharged, came back with an insurance certificate as being a sport,I queried it with the broker and they said not to worry about it and that it was covered.

    Something to do with their system.
