    Insurance renewal

    Hi All,

    I know this question has been asked many times, but I'd like peoples thoughts on insurnce on the new S3.
    I've been with dreict line for the last 6 years and they have served me well (though I've not made a claim with them, so in hindsight, they have done pretty well out of me!).

    Anyway any recommendations outside of the usual moneysupermarket.com etc?

    Thanks

    JK

    Sainsburys, underwritten by esure. Cheapest I could find with decent cover.

    Regards, John.

    I've been with Privilege, DL for the past 5 yrs or so.. and they've not been too bad.

    Adrian Flux, Greenlight etc are supposed to be quite good

    OK, I'm in west london car parked off the street in a secure car park.
    29yrs old, 11 yrs no claims, clean licence.
    Car has a Tracker too.

    Direct Line renewal was 818
    Swiftcover came in at 671
    Privilege just come in at 656
    Sainsburys (underwritten by esure) in at 632

    I'll going with Sainsburys me thinks unless anyhone can recommend someone else I should try.

    FYI - Confused was the portal that got me the quotes from swiftcover and Sainsburys - worth a look if your fishing for new quotes.

    Cheers,

    JK

    Thanks mate, I tried that and above is as good as I can do!
    Think it will be sainsburys as they have the lowest price and a lower excess too!

    Cheers

    Just for info guys, I also tried all of the above on renewal, swiftcover.com was the cheapest, however, I was previously with MCE

    www.mceinsurance.com

    If you tell em you cheapest quote, they will beat it, only slightly, and with decent underwriters, mine is with NIG

    Just a thought
    Audi A3 2.0T Quattro S-line, 06/06, Black/Black Heated Leather, SatNav, Xenons, Folding Mirrors, Cruise, P/Sensors etc

    just be careful with confused - they class factory fitted options with modifications - so if you answered 'Is your car modified' with no, and you have ANY factory fitted options you must tell them or your insurance will only replace your car with a standard spec one if its written off in first year and market value for standard spec after first year. Check with them. I stumbled across this problem the other year and its caused me headaches everytime renewal comes up.

    Swiftcover for me mate came out the cheapest.

    29yrs old, 9 years no claims, misses on the policy with 3 points and protected no claims came out at £454.00!

    One thing to tell the insurance company when quoting is that although it has a standard manufacturers alarm and immobiliser you have to really push although it is standard it is infact Thatcham Cat 1 which should knock some more off the price.
    NOW - Audi S3 Facelift - Sprint Blue, RNS-E Sat Nav, SDS, Bluetooth Phone Prep, Bose, Cruise, Buckets, FBMFSW, Adaptive Lights, Int Light Pack, Tyre Pressure Monitor, Piano Black Inserts, Through Load, Auto Dim RV Mirror/Wing, Auto Wipers/Lights, Folding Door Mirrors, Heated Seats, Ipod Dock, Front Arm Rest, Rear/Front Parking Sensors, 1st Aid Kit, Rear Arm Rest, H + R Springs, Front 15mm Spacers, Rear 10mm Spacers.

    JamS3 - 454!.. that is quality mate .

    Mine's the wrong side of 1K , but only just which probably has something to do with my NW London postcode. Even so, I'm 29, 8 yrs no claims with wife on policy who has 3pts but no other claims or convictions.
