MAY DAY, MAY DAY! Insurance says my car is not a alfa romeo quadrifoglio??

Told insurance company that the quadrifoglio came with a factory hardtop. Apparently optional in 1986. They say my car is a veloce? They need proof that it was a quadrifoglio. Maybe the guy i bought it from changed it to one????? The reason being i'm trying to get them to pay extra for the total loss of the car. I am not sure how you would verify that. Here is a picture of my vin number. This is tied to this thread. http://www.alfabb.com/bb/forums/spid...surance-3.html. Someone who is knowledgeable on the vin numbers please help. Thank you.

I think they are correct as my Alfa Flat Rate PA48950 manual lists VIN series BA 541 as series 115.503 for Spider 2000 MY 86.

VIN BA560 series 115.561 is Spider Quadrif, Verde MY 86.

It is what it is my friend sorry.

You are a guru around here. So if you say something, its valid or true. Thanks for looking into it. Insurance wants to give me 9700. I'm trying to squeeze more money out of them, for the hard top. And if its not a true quad, well it had on a hardtop when it got damaged. What do i tell them now? Crapola!

Does the VIN on the firewall match that on the dash and door jam?

If the hard top is undamaged, remove it from the car and sell it.
