    Chipping, is there anywhere......

    Just been looking at the cost of insurance when it comes down to me getting my car chipped (insurance being the major problem).
    I found this out, Standard S3 (my one), next year will cost me 760 for 10 months.
    With a chip of over 10% power increase, this rises to 1390! 600 more! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/jawdrop.gif[/img]
    But, if the chip only gave a power increase of 10% (works out to be 247.5bhp), then the premium only goes up by 100! Big saving. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]

    I know Oettinger's chips get it to 250bhp, is there anyone that quotes lower figures?

    Try Liverpool & Victoria - initial premium may be slightly higher but they charge nothing for mods.

    Liverpool and Victoria

    Just been on their website, and "Cars which have performance enhancing modifications." are listed as things they cannot insure. I take it it's different to what you (DuncS3) got when you tried them?

    Cheers anyways,

    I'm with DL and when I had my car chipped it went up 150!

    Yeah I took my insurance out (Approx 700) and then 1 month later chipped it and they increased it to 840 IIRC.

    Wasn't bad IMHO! The car was transformed so it was defo woth while!
