    S3 Black Edition - Insurance quotes?

    Hi all,

    Trying to get quotes for my new S3 Black Edition. I intend to modify it with lowering springs (25mm) and 19" alloys only. My current insurer Swiftcover won't insure the car with the modifications.

    Only insurer I can find so far is Adrian Flux. Go compare either can't find the model, websites down or won't insure because of the modifications.

    Anyone out there lined up their insurance or have already insured their S3 with modifications? If so, please let me know as I need to get insured!! Would be good to know excess as well as really only want compulsory of Ł250 max with no voluntary.

    Help please.

    im insured with admiral and they will insure a modded car even if your under 25. I think elephant who are the sister company will do the same.

    Cheers gents. Si, ignore my PM on eastside, you've answered the same question. I'll give admiral and elephant a go, see if they any better. The flux was Ł426 for the year, but excess Ł350 which I'd like to be lower ideally.

    Just FYI, Admiral will insure suspension and wheels, but not remaps.

    Admiral's not far off to be fair, plus I can reduce the excess. Ł250 excess, Ł421.25 for the year with mods. Swift was more without mods!!

    Mine's low as I'm an old man and it's parked in the sticks in a garage. It's better than I was expecting, so taking it on I think. Thanks for the input though folks.

    Pretty sure, I was on the phone to admiral for a quote on my S3, albeit an 8L as opposed to an 8P, and once I mentioned the word remap, the guy said they can't insure it!? He could do suspension and wheels, but not power hikes...

    Hi Rich,

    I'm with Adrian Flux and they had Black Edition listed too. I have my 19" CH's listed as a mod too and just compulsory excess of Ł250. Royal Sun Alliance IIRC.

    If you are thinking about a remap (and you should be) then Greenlight and A Plan are worth a call.

    Thanks Paul, hadn't thought about them. Might take a look tomorrow if I have the stamina!

    You're leaving it late buddy with a pick up on Monday, or have you opted for 7 day free Audi insurance cover?.

    BTW: My premium was Ł405 with protected no claims and personal protection cover ( RSA )

    Lucky boy. I had to "pay out" my swift cover when I closed it, f@ckin' cheek. Wife had a miss-hap with a boulder last year, and since she's a named driver it's pushed the premium up a bit. Admiral seems the one though. New S3, new start.

    If I'm being brutaly honest the Go Compare quote came in at Ł369 on Elephant. I'm 37 and the car will be kept in driveway. The missus is a named driver and the insurance covers my 7month son...no not for driving, just liability claims if every needed. The missus is also is also insured with Elephant for he car so I decided to call them to see if there was any further diso****. They then offered me the dual policy under ther sister company Admira at Ł340. All the same values and conditions apply to each policy. Got a Ł150 compulsory and Ł100 voluntary excess on the S3.

    Mods such as re-map, zorst and CAI all seem reasonable - recon Ł100 for all.
