    Who are you insured with?

    My renewal is coming up next week and i am struggling to find a good insurance company who will give me a good price on a policy which includes the remap.

    Most places won't even touch me with the remap and the ones that do want an extra 200-400 extra for the remap.

    The best i have got so far is:

    With Remap - 704 - Einsurance
    Without - 519 - Privilege

    Adrian Flux want 800 with the remap.

    I have 4yrs no claims, no points or claims and i am 26yrs young.

    Which insurance companies are you guys insured with?

    Robin, i've been with Admiral for the last 4 years on various cars (none remapped but modded lightly in someway) as they were consistently the cheapest, however....

    To insure the A3 without the Bluefin was 490... with Bluefin it went up to 890 and even with their 'loyalty' discount the best they could do was 840!!

    Got in touch with Neil @ Greenlight insurance who did it for 470 with the Bluefin and all factory options declared free of charge, better policy excesses than Admiral and a nice 10% uk-mkivs.net discount thrown in

    Give him a try mate, you may be pleasantly suprised...

    makes you laugh, its a license to print money and it has nothing to do with the power of the car, my 400bhp Supra (which was classed as a supercar of its time) was less to insure than my 1.9tdi (130bhp) Audi.

    Robin let me know how you get on, I think I will be in the same boat. I'm currently with Privilege paying about £430, but with the remap I'm guessing they will pull my pants down and butter me up

    Give these guys a go... http://www.greenlightinsurance.com/

    Remaps covered free of charge, factory options added for no extra cost and all the other normal insurance stuff like protected NCB is not a problem..

    As mentioned above, covered my A3 with Bluefin for less than my standard renewal, added my wife and protected NCB (10 years) for no extra charge

    Best bet is to fill in an online quote for the attention of 'Neil', mention Uk-mkivs.net and you should qualify for 10% forum discount..

    Premium without tracking device is £667.75.... but if I get a 10% discount ontop of that then £600 is alright I guess. Paying £440 now.

    You guys have it so good. Mines 750ish and that's the best I could get. The fact that it's leased, high mileage and parked on the street has insurance companies rubbing their hands with glee. Oh, and the mods too...

    I have now got my insurance sorted out now.

    I gave greenlight insurance and they quoted me 597.75 inc the remap.

    I then rang Adrian Flux and told them that greenlight gave me a cheaper quote and they said they would give the same cover for 590 inc the remap.

    Also with Adrian Flux they gave the option of protecting my 4yrs no claims so all in it has cost me just under 700 including protected no claims and also all the other additional legal protection stuff.

    greenlight are top notch

    they recently started to insure here in northern ireland

    im insured with a company called Quinn Direct which is a southern Irish based company

    im 22, 3 years NCB, fully comp with 3rd party FT cover on any other car, 6 points declared (which they didnt care about) on my 2.0tdi 140 for £780

    baring in mind people from northern ireland pay extra for insurance than in the mainland for some unknown stupid reason!

    something to do with the old court or claims system :S

    you shouldnt be charged for optional extra's anyway. about 90% of insurers will charge you for having a re-map and either loads your premium and/or increase your excess. By having a re-map done you will probably only have 40% of the insurance market quoting as its often and automatic decline

    i also find some insurers class factory fitted options as modifications so be careful with this as if you don't declare factory fitted options to these insurers - if you suffer a total loss only the basic car will be replaced - options will not

    I'm with AA this year as Adrian flux told me they are not so competitive this year on cars of value of over 25k (poss just an excuse of course!) but never had a prob with them for the last 6 years - usually consistently low premiums and usually beat any other quote

    That seems a bit high Dave.

    Your car must be similar in performance to mine, but I'm paying 265 to Direct Line for much the same spec, apart from the Euro breakdown, but including business use.

    I've been insured with NU Direct for a number of years and have always been happy with them. I made a claim recently for some minor damage in a car park and they were very good, arranging for the repair at my local Audi bodyshop and arranging for a hire car to meet me there etc. All handled very smoothly.

    But having said that I've just been in to the Direct Line website and got a quote. The cheapest was 324.45 but that was with a 250.00 excess and no guaranteed hire car. Setting the opitions to as close as possible with my current policy, ie 150 excess (current policy 120) and including a guaranteed uprated hire car the cover came to 429.45 and that does not include the European Cover.

    But it's good to shop around. I normally get several quotes on the internet each year, including going into the NU website. This is the first year I've not got a cheaper quote on their site than the renewal.

    A couple a weeks before my renewal was due I had a phone call offering a better price than the renewal price if I renewed there and then. As I had already done my alternative quotes and none was better I renewed.

    In the post today I received a 25.00 Marks and Spencer voucher for renewing 2 weeks early!
