Value will be based on what the selling prices are for similar cars in the market, but that won't be MSRP. Insurance company can search listings within a given radius of the OP (either used cars with similar mileage, or leftover 2012s) and see what the dealers would sell them the car for.
Because the car was virtually brand new. I'm not going to argue this here. Been there, done that. If you want to read more search my posts. I can assure you I'm not talking out of my butt.

Present - '06 E90 330i sport; Past - '04 E46 ZHP, '00 E46 328i
