    Thumbs up Modding options/prices with Admiral

    Since I may have a suspension issue at the moment, I wondered about upgrading to Billies and H&R springs on the car below, rather than replacing with OEM parts.

    Currently paying 750, 23, 4 years NCB on a multicar policy of five cars.

    To upgrade the suspension, 23 extra!!

    However, to remap and upgrade suspension, +174. . . just the remap, 174 . . . So that part didn't make sense, but still happy!

    Admiral were saying to me that they wouldn't insure my coilovers if they were wound down more than 50mm......

    What sort of difference is 10mm gonna make?

    Just asked Admiral for my renewal price

    I paid 1600 last year, and they quoted me 4000 this year!!!!!

    Just did another quote online with Admiral, came back with 1400....doesn't make sense!!

    Thats crazy...And mine isn't even a multi-car policy...

    My quote came in at around 740, so i phoned them and said it wasn't good enough discount, so they gave me an extra 40 quid off! Just goes to show, if you dont ask, you dont get!!

    Give them a bell mate and just ask them what they can do, worked for me..I know its only 40quid, but thats a few beer tokens!!
