    Joe,

    I've been insured with Admiral group (Admiral/Elephant/Bell) for many years now and they've always covered modified cars. Their website is one of the better ones as it allows you to pick and choose mods from a long list and then get a requote. So you can see exactly how much extra each mod is. As someone else has posted, they found 0-10% power increase is £7 premium, but the 11-25% is £144.


    As a general comment, and it's touched on in previous posts, adding a female driver to the policy as named driver helps out. I've put one of my 34 year old friends on the policy and even though she has 3 points from a CU80 (using phone whilst driving), it still makes my policy about £50 cheaper a year.

    21 when i took out the insurance, was circa £700. Bargain.

    Just checked earlier and look likes it will be around £600 this year so not bad at all, aslong as its goes down every so often it keeps me happy, if it went over £1000 i think i'd rather sell, just don't see the point paying all the money for an S3 when i can insure a RS4 for £900 :wtf:

    I was with swift cover last year paying £330 ish, their renewal came beginning of June and they wanted near on 600, i'm 41 9+ years NCB no claims or convictions with my missus as a named driver, fully comp & protected with windscreen & breakdown cover, ended up going on go compare and got it down to about 500 ish IIRC, tried elephant & confused but go compare gave me the cheapest quotes by far.

    24, 7 years NCD, no points - just shy of a grand with my mods declared.
    When I took it out the year before it was £800 so gone up a fair bit, regardless of being a year older with 1 extra year NCD, and still the cheapest I could find :(

    24 Years old,
    S3 2000
    14k miles a year
    No mods declared
    2 years NCB with 1 fault claim, no points
    My renewal is at the end of the month and Direct Line (current insurer) have offered me £1600 with £600xs!!
    £1111 with £475xs (Admiral) inc legal cover + guaranteed hire car is the best I found
    Definetly worth shopping around...and then calling the company to get it even cheaper :) (was £1190 on the net without optional extra's inc)

    I think this just comes down to a Post Code lottery. I live in Greater London (UB3), drive a 97 a3 1.8 T, 28 years old, 4 year ncb - protected. Will be paying £770 at the start of July with AA with no mods declared. Have seen slightly cheaper quotes (upto £100) but these are with companies I've never heard off. Had to incidents in last 5 years, 1 was a hit and run in 2007 - Claim made and 2nd was last year, hit by drink driver - no claim made. My insurance has been around £700 for the last 4 years or so on this car. Find it crazy that some of you guys are younger than me and pay less than me!!!

    Great advice mate- entered all my details into the site last nite- and have just got an e-mail from them....
    £899.35 with £450 XS, and that's with Highway Insurance who are a known insurer + Legal + Guaranteed Hire Car + Possible track day cover!

    I'll be giving them a call when I get home to run through all the details....but I'm impressed with the price and service so far.

    Just got off the phone to greenlight, to double check everything I entered on the net was correct + investigate any further T&C's.
    Nothing that I altered changed the premium (forgot a NF claim in 2007) and so £899.75 is the guaranteed price!

    This was with the spec I entered above (standard S3).... I then went on to say I was possibly getting a set of 18" BBS' Audi Alloys worth about £1000.. and that still didnt change the price!

    Then enquired about adding Coilovers which took it to £944.35- which is still very good I think. (Parts to be fitted pre-inception date)

    Definitely worth a quote from them when your renewal comes up... Cheers S1LFH
