    I take it you are declaring your mod's? I'm afraid at your age and with that motor + your driving history you may be out of luck

    yes of course, the phone was in your hand, why was it in your hand ?

    there's a reason why it is 5 grand, a little obvious no ? 200 bhp car and 18 year old goes well together

    the problem you have got mate is the three points for apparently being on your phone you will find the 3 points for that will raise your insurance a substantial amount where as for an sp30 (speeding points) is wont rise that much. they have done alot of research with people that have points for using mobiles and there renewel was 90% of the time 4 times as much as previous quotes. also only 3 out of 10 companys would actually insure them.

    anyway why worry about insuring it when you wouldnt be covered any ways. its people like you that cost us a fortune in insurance as you will be classed as an uninsured driver for driving a completely differetn car to what you are insured for.

    any insurance you take out would be invalid, the logbook/car needs to corrected to show the engine change.

    Sorry my friend but my 106 Gti had a clock. A couple of mods?? A 1.8T transplant isn't really to be sniffed at! Sorry mate, your way out of your depth unless you have very deep pockets

    I think the only way is to sell or garage the car for a few years and run around in a cheap shed. You could use the audi on the track in between time. Build up driving experience and don't make a claim.
    Dont risk having the vehicle seized and the points and fine!
    Moral of story is research first! Sorry

    You need to fill out the detail change part on your V5 with the new details. The DVLA will likely demand an engineers report to ensure the conversions been done properly and safely (this will be at your expense and require the car taking somewhere suitable (not insured means trailering it to the report writers location or getting them to the car.

    IF you fail to disclose the conversion and you are stopped the police do a check and see your car is not what it says. You can expect all the below;

    Car will get impounded
    6 points for no insurance
    Your insurer will void your policy
    You will pay through the nose for years to come in a way that the cost of insuring it properly originaly seem like small change

    I'm afraid at your age with your experience you will NOT get insured on that car at any sort of sensible premium.

    Seriously mate it's just not worth it. Especially as you live in WGC which is where I grew up and currently work. I know Herts police are getting very hot on insurance dodging (Fronting - getting a parent to insure your car and then you be a named driver). My contact in the traffic police has told me on numorous occasions that they seize several vehicle a week for this sort of thing.

    No matter what tips or advice anyone gives you 5k is never going to come down to a realistic price. Sell up, get a corsa and buy an s3 with the money you save over the next 4 years
