I had a call today from the dealers, just to confirm everything is ok before I collect the S3 on Saturday.
They confirmed the registration number, as I'd requested so that I could sort out my insurance cover before pick up.
Anyway they said that it was easier for them if I took the 7 day complimentary insurance that comes with the car, as it was easier for them to tax the car and ensure all was in order prior to collection.
She gave me a number to call and I gave them all of my details and waited for the call back.
As part of the 7 day free cover they asked if I was interested in the option of taking out the insurance policy with them and could they give me a quote for the year. Obvioulsy I said yes, just out of interest.
10 minutes later and I received the phone call.
As an example of other quotes I'd recieved :-
Swiftcover.com's online quote was £433, but I do need to add business cover to this quote.
Bell direct's quote was £630
How much do you think Audi wanted?
Wait for it
I just laughed and thanked them for the "free" 7 days cover and declined the option of annualising their policy.
I cant believe they have any customers if they are charging over 3 times the amount of other leading insurers.
