    Modified 2001 A4 b6 1.9tdi, 24 years young, 3 years ncb, no points, Birmingham

    Just wondering who's going to provide the most competitive deal as my beast has undergone a transformation and my current insurer will not support the car without breaking my legs.

    Current mods include:
    Tints on all back windows
    Eibach Suspension
    AP Dampers
    Smoked side repeaters
    RS4 pedals
    S-line rear bumper
    S4 door blades
    Smoked LED rear lights
    Decat
    Euro number plates with plate holders
    Led interior lighting including boot lights
    Aero wipers
    Small boot spoiler
    Debadged (other than Audi logos)
    Plasti Dipped boot trim
    RS6 s-line replica 19 inch alloys with 235/35/19 tyres
    ...think that's about it haha will update if I can think of more

    These mods will probably happen before insurance:
    BV43 turbo
    RS4 rear anti roll bar
    LED licence plate lighting
    EGR delete
    Sachs uprated clutch kit
    Remap (175bhp with 190ft/lbs although this is a conservative estimate)

    Plans within this year of insurance include:
    Full B7 s-line front end conversion with DRL headlights
    RS4 black edition grille
    Bigger brakes
    S3 front mount intercooler
    Carbon fibre interior trim
    S-line steering wheel
    Dash camera
    Audio upgrade
    Probably more I'm an addict

    Has a couple months left just wanted to do some initial research before taking the plunge. Best to shop around although with the mods I have/will have this can take some explaining haha. May also get my parents insured (usually works out cheaper plus they love wasting my fuel) they're both around 50 years old with 10+ years no claims.

    If you stick to genuine parts then insurers will have a hard time to avoid a pay out. I would use genuine audi brakes from a higher power model and keep quiet about the other mods. Tints will have to be declared unless factory fitted... Bv43 looks almost stock in the engine bay so i would not worry about that either !
    FOR SALE:

    The site sponsors are the most helpful on their modified cars insurance schemes with forum discount. In the last 10 years, I've insured my S3 with all mods declared through AFlux, Greenlight and currently Prestige.

    Cheers, is doubtful they could say much because like you say most parts are OEM(ish), hopefully should be able to find some bigger Audi/VW spec brakes too. As you say most parts look like they came with the car it's just wheels, lights and tints they may pick up on. Even then they can't really say much. Just makes me paranoid if it's insured differently haha insurance is a mugs game either way I suppose.

    Will be getting in touch real soon just looking for a better understanding before listing mods to all these companies. Also made this so I'd remember what's been done when I call haha.

    Drop by N. London one day and i will talk you trough of what works and what does not, brakes and power increases ! I can put together a big brake kit that looks good, fits behind most 17" alloy wheels and most importantly stops you on a dime - for not that much dough !
