    Re: Remapped car.....

    Adrian Flux, Elephant/Admiral, Green Light? There are a few, though it depends on many variables when it come to insurance.

    Worth giving them a try - I'm sure more people will have other suggestions. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Re: Remapped car.....

    A-plan undercut adrian flux, and had a lower excess, for my bmw, even allowing for remap, lowering, etc etc..

    get yourself a list of the 3 or 4 most recommended, and then do the trawl through.. adrian flux were cheaper than a-plan for my brother, so you cant assume any are always going to be best..

    They usually raise the %age of premium depending on %age increase in power Rich, 20-30% increase in power from turbo'd cars is the norm. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]

    Re: Remapped car.....

    get the remap slug! do it, worry about the money later. My Adrian Flux quote is going up in accordance with the percentage power increase. I told them around 220bhp and they said they would increase it buy 20%.
    Only about a tenner a month more.

    My premium is now going to be 630 for the year.

    28yrs old. 9yrs protected no claims, fully comp. with the wife on as well.

    Think of the grin [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] and get selling some stickers to cover the increase!

    Thats the grey area, just say it's a 25% increase, they are not going to measure it
    though an aftermarket turbo would suggest more than 25% lol.

    Re: Remapped car.....

    Cheapest qoute for mine with mods was AA.
    Tried audi insurance well came back and said they don't insure cars with mods well their loss.
    But found 9 out 10 insurers will not insure for mods.
    Plus i think they have a cheek, for instance you get charged more for lowering your car, but if you car is in a incident and they need replacing for example they will only do this to factory settings.
    so you lose your springs.

    Also as anyone declared their Brembo brakes on insurance, if so did it cost much more??

    Stupid thing is - most of the upgraded parts (springs etc) are cheaper from the performance companies than the manufacturer anyway!!
