    Insurance renewal

    Got my insurance renewal through today and was just wondering which company's people use, and how much people pay. I'm 27 with 9 years NCD and tesco's offered 339 fully comp with protected NC but for some reason i have 750 excess, which i will not be keeping , probably go for 200-300 excess..

    Plus, i know it's it's a old yarn but do people tell them about remaps?

    Yellow pages/yell.com or any motoring magazine

    not sure about the remap question as mine is switchable but ask yourself this question..if you wrote the car off would the insurance company go to all the trouble of putting vag-com on it? I told mine and they put it up forty quid

    I use adrian flux

    Try the Autotrader insurance search.
    I'm with Morethan, last years premium was 230 quid, however i have a few more miles on my clock than you.
    Aren't Tesco's giving away Karcher pressure washers away with insurance at the moment?

    Greenlight seem to be quoting well on the S3 at the moment.

    I wouldn't bother with those insurance search websites. It may be more tedious searching every site indiviually but I've always got better quotes this way.

    I'm paying 450 fully comp with 10 years no claims, with all my mods declared and both me and the wife both have 6 points each on our licences. Best insurers for modified S3's is AdrianFlux and Greenlight, I usually end up playing each company off each other until I think I'm getting the best deal, excess is 350 IIRC.

    Free pressure washers hey! I think i might look into it, plus i think I'll tell them that it's mapped, just for peace of mind, i know what your saying though i wouldn't have thought that the insurance company would bother digging in to ECU files to check if its mapped.

    I'm 27 (or will be on Sunday when my insurance is due) 9 years protected NCB,250 excess, been quoted 472 with Greenlight. That includes H&R springs, ARBs Bilstein dampers, tie bars, short shift, diverter valve, and up to 40BHP increase with a remap.

    Didn't think that was too bad?

    Cheapest was 350 on confused.com but that was without any mods.

    You wouldn't want to go with Tesco if you had a Renault then,
    a free power washer....you wouldn't have much of a car left !!!

    That is bloody good, I'm struggling to get my R32 under 1000 and I'll be 22 at renewal in a few months. I live in a very nice area, too.

    yeah Greenlight for me aswell

    26 8 years n/c,protected and remap and porsche brakes declared, o yeah and 3 points under cu80 for mobile phone use

    and only 472 so not bad me thinks especially as direct line were my cheapest for 4 years

    until i remapped it then they wanted extra 250 for remap and brakes,

    were as greenlight look at how long you've had the car for wether your experienced with it

    and with the remap they agreed and encourage (apparently) to upgrade brakes so they get my

    Greenlight seem to be popping up a fair bit, might give them a try and see if they can match my tescos quote with a lower excess..

    Finally got round to hassling Tesco's today about my renewal, after going through a few departments and originally being told I will NOT get better than 339 with 750 excess, I ended up with 400 with my partner on the policy, 300 excess, a pressure washer worth 120 and gold breakdown cover ( put up in a hotel,taken anywhere,home call outs etc.. etc ) I'm quite pleased with that!!

    This is quite interesting, see, I did some quotes Tuesday night, eventually went back to Elephant, and for me on a 2001 X REG 225bhp S3 (fully comp, 2 years NCB, no conivs/claims) it totalled just over 740. I'm also 21 years of age..


    **edit - Infact, Danotto, have you declared those mods? Ever had a remap go through with Elephant...? How badly did it effect you?

    I'm 37 & live in South West London (Not even a good bit) & I paid 600 fully comp (Full NCB) with Admiral including my Remap, thou I think these days it's a post code lottery.
    Lot's of companies said they would not insure me, I think it will be cheaper just to move, LOL
