    Greenlight are very picky with the cars they insure, so it must've been the car not being a hot hatch that put them off - Greenlight Insurance » Modified Car Insurance

    They won't even quote over the phone anymore, you have to email them details, and they email/text you back with a quote. I did get a reasonable quote, but I had to phone them up to add my missus on it, which hiked the price up.

    I thought my S3 was classed as a hot hatch?

    Adrian Flux quoted Ł820.

    Just got cover with AVIVA, fully comp, Ł350 Excess. Ł592 annually, or Ł624 if i pay monthly.

    I'm happy with that, thanks to all for advice....

    Adrian Flux by a country mile, especially when I mentioned possible future mods...according to the underwriter on the phone, only engine mods or power increases will affect the premium i.e re-maps / turbo upgrades, whereas other mods i.e. alloys / suspension are merely classed as "cosmetic" and dont affect the premium - winner! The only difference to some previous companies I`ve been insured with is that they seem to be pretty stringent with their mileage decleration...1,362 miles to go & counting...I could be bussing it in january

    I've been with Greenlight for years, got the renewal through and although they beat everybody else by plenty it still went up Ł100 from last year.

    Adrian flux are very keen on mileage, my mate has been asked twice in one year what the mileage is at present ...if you miss the letter or ignore them they will cancel the policy without any further correspondence.

    anyway just done a quote with greenlight with all mods declared "everything down to little white audi stickers on the brake calipers" they come back with Ł498. unbelieveable thats like half the price i've been bent over and shafted.

    Switched to Premium Choice this year and been charged Ł696, 21 years with 4 years NCB. Could have been Ł600 if I were still a student! I couldn't find many reviews on the company so I'm not sure what they will be like if I ever need to claim :S

    Some of the companies I rang up told me about the credit checks and they specifically said the check will not count towards my credit score or something?
