    Insurance Renewal

    So saturday morning i get my insurance renewal through in the post. Ł1700PA. Now thats not too bad! Last year it worked out to be around Ł2300!! So as im with Adrian Flux, i thought i would look about and see if anyone can beat it as they guarantee to beat any like for like quote. I got a quote from greenlight which came in Ł600 cheaper!! It was Ł1099 for the same thing. Brilliant i thought! So with the quote i go back to AF and say that GL beat it by Ł600 and if they can beat it. For them to do this, they need proof of the quote with full vehicle details and also a list of the modifications... However, GL would not give me a full quotation for someone else to go and beat it! Damn it!!

    Nevertheless, i am happy with a Ł1099PA premium considering that less than half of last years! Not bad for a 22 year old driver, 2 years NCB and 300+bhp!

    Re: Insurance Renewal

    I got a quote from Elephant for a remap and they wanted Ł1800! Called Greenlight and they could do a remapped car for the same price as I pay now standard with Elephant (Ł930).

    Highly recommend Greenlight and Neil who was really helpful and knowledgeable.

    Yeah certainly much better than last years nightmare!! I dont bother with other insurers as my mods go far beyond simple remaps. It seemd that most insurers are willing to accept remaps/chips but as soon as something as major as a turbo upgrade is mentioned, they refuse!!

    Re: Insurance Renewal

    They won't provide a written quote just for someone else to go and beat it, but surely they'll provide you with a hard copy of the quote for 'reference' or something won't they? bit of a poor show if they won't give you a written copy.

    No they only supply email quotations which are very basic in their information...probably for this very reason!

    Re: Insurance Renewal

    I shop around every year, one year one comapny seems to beat the others by a large margin, maybe just to get your business, but then the next year the renewal is alot more.

    I honestly don't think I've ever stayed with the same company 2 years in a row, but I keep coming back to Direct Line as every time I re-apply I get a good quote.

    It's so confusing (and a waste of time) nowadays with so many companies owned by the same person, you get idential quotes sometimes.

    Ouch! that's worse than when I got my licence back from 12 month disqual (totting up). One company quoted Ł3k and said it would have been cheaper if I'd been banned for drink driving rather than persistent speeding.
    Drink driving must be more socially acceptable than the real killer, motorway speeding! T*ssers!
    I stayed on my parents insurance until I was 21, and that was 20 years ago!

    10k this time... And a year on and i've covered just over 8.5k so 10 is about spot on.
