    S3 Insurance...

    Hi Guys,

    My renewal is due soon and it's got me thinking about modifying my car again, greenlight have matched my renewal from direct line and I'll be giving adrian flux a call soon. Greenlight also only want an extra 100 for a remap over standard.

    I'm just wondering if anyone has had any experiences making a claim with either of the above? or has any other recommendations of good insurance companies for modified cars I should try, I'll be looking to insure a standard car then get it remapped early ish in the new year?

    Cheers, [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]

    Ben.

    Not made a claim yet (Touchwood!), but no one can touch Greenlight insurance for my S3 with all the mods declared. AdrianFlux seems to have hiked their prices, as I was with them for 2 years previously with my clean driving record and maximum NCB, but they couldn't match Greenlight's quote, not without proof anyway [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

    As was my problem!... Flux guarantee to beat ANY quote on the same car (like for like)....But the only cheaper insurer was greenlight (by some 500 for me!!) and they will not supply written quotations. Not that i was THAT bothered... 1100 was pretty bloody good i thought!!

    Re: S3 Insurance...

    Thanks for the info chaps, I think I'll be going with greenlight but will give the others a call first.

    Has anyone asked for trackday cover from greenlight and prices etc?

    I'm guessing the email quotes from greenlight don't do it as written proof?

    Trackday from greenlight is 80 per day with excess doubled for the whole day IIRC .. they wont cover castle combe though.

    ...top service although they needed a gentle kick now and then when dealing with my claim.

    Re: S3 Insurance...

    That's good to know - thanks Adam, what kind of problems did you get with your claim?

    I can see this getting rather expensive though, where to start... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/noidea.gif[/img]

    Re: S3 Insurance...

    I am paying 500 fc on my S3 (27 full ncb) which i think is good through Adrian Flux. They quoted me an extra 100 for a remap. Minor mods which i have done (bailey dv and H&R springs) were no extra cost.
    Also last year i had a non fault accident in my old A4 T Sport which they sorted out quickly. Adrian Flux are the best broker ive been with for both price and service.

    Re: S3 Insurance...

    Thanks Steve, I'll definately be giving them a call and see if they can do better than greenlight however I'm starting to think I can't be expecting it to get much cheaper than the quote from greenlight of 750 / 850 with remap. I'm 24 with 4 years no claims in an ok ish postcode I think.

    Turning 25 made a big difference to my insurance so you might have to wait until next year to get the sort of quote you were hoping for.

    I does seem that certain companies are always good for certain people. i.e. admiral/elephant always come up trumps for me. I've just renewed with them for 670 (26 yrs old, 8 yrs NCB, 3 pts). Adrian Flux, privilege etc. couldn't come close. Greenlight wouldn't even quote because of my postcode!
