    Quoted Ł950 for Std 07 S3, 5Ncb, 32yrs, seems high?

    Does this seem reasonable?, I had heard of folks getting around Ł700 or less.

    I have 2 SP30's, no accidents, 5 yrs ncb.

    I would think thats pretty high. I'm 30, 5y ncb, 4 points (sp30) and been quoted Ł450 on my V8 S4. Suppose a lot depends on where you live though...
    Looking for the right A4 Quattro. 1.9 TDI / 1.8T or 2.0T...

    6 points will be the killer there I reckon. How many miles per year and location?

    Hi
    The 2 SP30's are with 3 points, and 4 points so 7 in total. Location Huddersfield. 15k per year.

    That'll be the reasons. Relatively above average miles, not sure on Huddersfield, but 7 points is high (no offense pal).

    Put it this way, mine, 23, 4ncb, 8k per year, Ł8k car, location in Cheshire. That's Ł750 on an older car.

    I'm 43 with an 05 A3 3.2 with no points, no claims/accidents and 12+years no claims bonus and tbh insurance is ridiculous. I live in Bradford so not far from you and the best I can get is around Ł650 with most quotes coming out just under a grand!
    Best ones for me are Swiftcover and RAC

    Yes that's with mods declared, although swiftcover don't cover suspension mods as a rule.
    TBH the main problem I have is the postcode. I live in a nice area and the car is garaged, but the same postcode covers some parts that are not so nice and so it comes out as a refer on the postcode list.
    Funniest quote I got was through qwik-fit at Ł2500!!!!!!

    Greenlight won't touch my area!!

    OP - Ł950s not bad mate for your two SP30s.

    It's madness at the moment. I'm in a small town, '07 S3, 14 Yrs NCB, zero points or claims, 36 Yrs old and most seem to be struggling to get under Ł900! That's 40% more than I paid last Year and I've had no points or claims since then!

    Madness. I've got a few around the Ł6-700 mark, so I'm with one of those.

    In all honesty, if insurance was near or over Ł1k to insure my 8L S3, then it's time to sell! It's not a Ł1k to insure car, infact, since passing my test, I've never paid over Ł1k for insurance, most was Ł800 odd for a BMW 318IS Coupe when I was 23, it went upto Ł1500 the year after, and I swopped it for the S3 I have now which was quicker and Ł750 to insure F/C.

    Regarding the SP30's, I think you will find a high percentage of people have points on their licence, it's very normal, the premium goes up by 20-50 quid only, it's 'bans' and 'drink/dangerous driving' that carries heavy penalties. SP30's and running red lights are nothing in comparison.

    That's bloody good considering the likely bhp increase that your mods have given you.

    I'm 37 with full no claims and a clean licence living in the North West. Car is a standard 08 S3 and is insured for between 20-25,000 miles per annum with my wife as a named driver (36, clean licence) and protected NCB and its costing me Ł518 with Zurich. Swiftcover were cheaper but i wanted to go with a more established name on such a high risk car.

    That surprises me from Zurich. Just come away from them after 3 years. Saved a lot of money (four figure sum) on the five cars in a Multicar Policy with Admiral . . .

    Zurich told me my S3 would be Ł1,250, with Admiral it's Ł750 . . . go figure.

    Different insurance companies favour different postcodes and drivers, which is why we have to shop around for the best deal, or we'd just stick with the same company year in year out! They cannot give you the best price on renewal can they? It's all moneymaking, and if they are desperate to get you as a customer, they will make an attempt to beat your 'other' quotes over the phone, which can't be done online.

    Agree with that.

    I tried Sky last week - they were Ł200 more than I can get from other reputable insurers. And I've tried most of 'em now...

    Well I hunted around a bit more after reading the suggestions and have managed to get a quote at Ł830. I will try Tesco and Zurich next and see if I can get it below Ł750.
    (Protected NCB is an Extra Ł120 at many places.....wth!)

    James - I looked at this and my findings were as follows;

    Insurance for the above (23, 4NCB) was Ł750.

    The above + protected no claims was Ł890.

    For an accident, it goes down by 2NCB = 2 NCB, so new price next year at 24, 2NCB was Ł780 . . .

    So Ł140 for NCB protection, or Ł30 if I'm not protected and have a bump. Didn't see the point and the same came out of the horses mouth (Admiral representative).

    Finally! Greenlight quoted me happy at Ł557 protected

    Low XS, mods friendly, hire car, legal cover etc. And the company they quoted (Highway) deal with their own claims rather than hiving them off to a third party claims agency.

    Anyone heard of Highway insurance? They've just been bought by Liverpool Victoria (LV) who were helpful with me previously.

    For info, Zurich wanted Ł930, Tesco Ł660, Admiral Ł740 guaranteed NCB, Sky Ł930, A-Plan Ł900ish & Direct Line Ł1030. Quite some differences.

    Circa Ł400 difference shows what a mine field insurance really is. There is no way a company can offer Ł400 worth of extra service.

    Lets face it though, you waste 30minutes to 1 hour on the phone and can possibly save yourself Ł200, always look for a landline to call, not the 08 starting numbers and use your mobile and cane your free minutes(everyone has these right?).
    There's never been a year I haven't made a saving by calling around and playing all the insurers against each other. At the end of the quote, you always say you are shopping around, and they will says 'call us back if you find a better quote, and see if we can beat it!', which suggests to me it's no their best price!

    It's not as simple as that, if you make a claim on your insurance, it's -2yrs NCB and +30% on your premium for making a claim! After the first year of NCB, any additional year of NCB is -10% of your full insurance premium, so if it's Ł1500 to insure with no NCB, +30%(for making a claim), so call it Ł2k to insure, those 2years NCB is worth appox Ł400 per annum for the next 5 years.

    I guess if you never plan to make a claim, even in the event of an accident, then it's pointless paying for protected bonus, but never say never... sh1t happens.

    It may not be as simple as I posted Joe, but that was the quote from Admiral. So my advice would be ask how many NCB you loose by making a claim and put yourself in the same position, one year older with -2NCB.

    Basically, do your homework!

    +agreed on the never say never. I've never crashed. But I have been crashed into, twice, both at roundabouts = 50:50 no matter how much you shout and scream (in my experience).
