    If you're looking for competitive car insurance, high service levels and all the ongoing support you need, we've got some great news for you.

    CHRIS KNOTT INSURANCE now offers Audi-Sport.net members all of the above and more. We love car enthusiasts because you really look after your cars.

    Here's what members have said about us on some of the other forums we work with:

    "I've just saved £230 on 2 cars by returning to Chris Knott for 12 months - my Civic, plus wife's A1. Well done Kim. Some companies do seem only to take you seriously for 1 year." - Jimm, Civinfo -

    "Signed up for a great deal in March, declared mods, total cover and the cheapest quote by far. I would highly recommend Chris Knott. They were very easy to deal with over the phone and had that personal touch that was nice. Give them a try guy and girls. Very competitive prices with great levels of cover :)" - 87carter, Ford Mondeo OC -

    "Call centre staff are great to deal with - many of whom seem to have a genuine interest in modified cars too. So much easier when explaining your modifications list!" - radion_auto, mg-rover.org -


    We'd like to get involved on this forum and be available for general insurance comment too. If you're not sure about any element of our offering, please just ask - we're looking forward to talking to you.

    For your free car insurance quote, call Chris Knotts on 0800 917 2274 (or 01424 200477 for mobiles) quoting CODE: AUS-154 and find out how much you could save.

    Of course, we have our own set of criteria so we won't be the best for everyone. If we can't help you it's not because we don't want to. However, if you fit our scheme we'll work hard on your behalf to negotiate the best deal with insurers and that sometimes involves using an alternative quote as ammo to get them to budge.

    We only quote over the phone as we've found online forms are never as good as the human touch.

    When you call us we get a better feel for you as a risk and this results in a better quote for you - we currently sign up one in every 3 enquiries. Will the next one be you?

    Will you be saying what this happy customer said? "Cannot recommend Chris Knott enough, excellent service and always beat the comparison sites. Thanks again for your help today guys." - @danhans42, Twitter -

    We don't operate hard sell tactics. Instead we encourage staff to offer top-quality personal service, sound advice and all the ongoing support you need throughout your time with us.

    Your needs are put first and we’ll work hard on your behalf to find the policy that is most suitable for your requirements. We want to treat you fairly – the same way we’d expect to be treated ourselves.

    To ensure that you get a crystal-clear quote and the right price/cover combination, call us FREE at renewal so our highly-trained insurance experts can help.

    • Competitive quotes
    • Personal contact
    • Impartial advice
    • Your needs put first
    • All the ongoing support you need
    • Highly-trained insurance experts
    • 30 years' experience of looking after car club members

    Simply call FREE on 0800 917 2274 (or 01424 200477 for mobiles) quoting CODE: AUS-154 to find the right price and cover combination.

    Smallprint
    The scheme covers most modifications (excluding nitrous, roll cages and bhp increase of more than 100 over stock). All makes and models are considered eligible. Drivers must be aged over 19 for TPF&T and Comprehensive. Drivers of performance models must be aged 23 or over (sometimes 25 - depending on overall risk profile) with a minimum of 12 months' experience of driving/insuring similar performance cars (sometimes 6 months is enough - call us). All drivers must have held a licence for at least 1 year and have at least 1 year's NCB.

    Quotes subject to individual circumstances including restrictions on claims/convictions (no more than 1 SP/PC/PL conviction per driver). Sorry but we are not competitive on SOME OF the M, L, OL and SK1-12 postcodes. Scheme currently excludes Northern Ireland. Some postcodes require the car to be parked off the road overnight.

    This insurance scheme is administered by Chris Knott Insurance who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.

    This is terrific news; another broker joining the forum to offer insurance tailored specifically to members' needs. Although I've just renewed with one of the existing sponsors, the fact we have another sponsor providing cover increases competitiveness and choice, which can only ever be a good thing. Welcome, Chris Knott Insurance.

    UPDATE: Car Insurance Wish List

    Hi,


    In the Chris Knott office recently we were considering whether there were things the industry could do better. We were also contemplating what we as a business could do better.


    Being that we're coming to the end of the year and are starting our planning for our new financial year which begins 1st Feb it's a good time to ask this question of you.


    It's incredibly important for us to get members' views in all this as we seek to provide the things you want and need. Interactivity is the benefit of being involved with a forum.


    Of course, a competitive price is always going to feature highly amongst the responses - we know that and we've responded as the market has softened in recent months. But we're also keen to find out if there are things besides the price that matter to you from a cover or service point of view that would be useful.


    We'll look at all your suggestions - some of them we'll be able to arrange straight away, others will take longer to organise, maybe involving insurers, and some will not be possible at all but we'll do all we can to respond to the sensible suggestions.


    To make sure we're not just feeding our competitors ideas, please PM me on here or drop us a message on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/ChrisKnottIns) or Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/Chris_Knott_Ins).


    We look forward to hearing from you but please maintain the helpful, collaborative spirit in which this is intended.

    Thank You from Chris Knott Insurance

    Hi, we'd like to thank the members of the car club/forum community for their support of our special car insurance scheme. So far this year we've been amazed at the increase in members using our service to find the best deal - each month we've beaten our growth targets by a significant amount and that's down to you.

    On a slightly different note, we do try to monitor the forums and keep up to date with any insurance questions out there but if we've missed any please feel free to flag them up again by PM and we'll make sure you get a response.

    Thanks again for your custom and don't forget to try us this year when your renewal falls due. We won't be able to help everyone but we'll do all we can for as many of you as we can.

    QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274 / 01424 200477

    REMINDER: Chris Knott discounted Car Insurance scheme

    Chris Knott has launched a couple of online products for members in the last month (Breakdown and GAP) and I've been posting on here about them. So I thought it would be good to now go back and remind you of our core offering which is, of course, our special car insurance scheme.

    As car club members generally look after their cars better than the average driver the insurers on our panel allow us to be a bit more flexible in our pricing and respond to your best alternative quote rather than the rigid computer calculation to win the business.

    The result is that you ultimately get a lower quote than you would otherwise.

    On the subject of quotes, thank you to this forum's members for the number of quotes requested for Chris Knott Car Insurance in the last quarter - you're one of our TOP 10 partners in this regard.

    And, as we're signing up 44% of all club enquiries on average, this can only be good for your members.

    MAIN CHRIS KNOTT PRODUCTS available to members:

    * Car Insurance / Multi-car Insurance (extra discounts for more than one car) - phone for a quote
    * Breakdown Cover - by phone or quote and buy online
    * GAP Insurance - by phone or quote and buy online

    OTHER USEFUL PRODUCTS FROM CHRIS KNOTT if you need them:

    * Home Insurance - extra £20 OFF our best home quote if you have 1 car with us / extra £50 OFF our best home quote if you have 2+ cars with us.
    * Commercial Vehicle and Fleet Insurance
    * Business Insurance

    CHRIS KNOTT QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274 - Please mention this forum to receive the full benefit (or call 01424 200477 - cheaper for mobiles).

    FEEDBACK FROM CAR ENTHUSIASTS IN THE LAST 2 WEEKS...


    "Just had a nice chat with Tabitha getting a quote for this year, after being with main stream insurers up until now. As I'm looking at some modifications I wanted a flexible policy and CKI came up trumps. What a brilliant deal, massively cheaper than anyone else, but with more cover. Couldn't be happier!" Dunk Veloce, Alfa Romeo OC

    "This year got quoted £840 from admiral and then £480 for Chris Knott. Guess who I chose." JackW, Civinfo.com

    "Well what can I say? The guys at Chris Knott are epic. Had my renewal quote from my previous provider. Started calling the insurance companies on here. Most of them only beat the renewal quote by a few £££. Called Chris Knott insurance and they smashed the price! Very happy with the price nearly £200 off the renewal quote. Big thanks Chris Knott and a huge thanks to Kim and Rebecca." klashinikov, Type R Owners forum.

    "Just made changes to my policy and declared the new modifications, couldn't be any easier or helpful. Happy to be with Chris Knotts, couldn't recommend them enough. Thanks again!" Danny Piercy, Facebook

    Hi, just to let you know I'm away for a couple of weeks so I won't be able to reply to posts or PMs but I'll be back on 18/8.

    In the meantime, please continue to call us for quotes. We've had a brilliant July and it's all down to car club/forum members like you picking up the phone.

    Online v Phone
    We know many of you like to get your quotes online but we're able to beat the price comparison sites if we can talk to you - we get a better feel for you over the phone and we can ask different questions to manually decide whether you're a good risk to take on and at what price. This benefits you far more than a simple "computer says yes, computer says no" scenario.

    Pick up the phone and ask us to quote (Tel: 0800 917 2274 or 01424 200477) - you'll be glad you did when we beat your best quote (which we currently do for almost 50% of all callers).

    Multi-car households
    If you have multi-car policies with the likes of Admiral, we can compete with these too. Those companies typically only have their own products to sell. We have access to a whole range of insurers and can pick the most appropriate one for each individual vehicle but still give you the benefit of a single renewal date and a single point of contact - call Chris Knott Insurance for your quote today.

    Past experience
    It may be that you've asked us to quote in the past and we weren't able to help. If that's the case it's definitely worth calling us again when your renewal falls due. With postcode relaxations and changes to driver age requirements in the last 12 months there's a good chance that we've dealt with whatever was preventing us from winning your business last time. And if price was the issue, please don't miss out on this one thing - we currently have insurers queuing up at our door for good, clean, car club/forum member drivers and they'll support us in doing whatever it takes to win the right cases.

    You all know what insurance is like. Today's low rates may start to rise again tomorrow. Let's both make hay while the sun shines!

    Give us a call on 0800 917 2274 / 01424 200477 and mention this forum to see how much we can save you.

    See you in a couple of weeks.

    best regards,
    Nick

    More feedback found this week...

    "CK have pulled out all of the stops to give me a great price this year! Well made up!" Ryan-H, R32 Owners Club

    "I would also recommend you speak to Chris Knott for other types of insurance too. I recently moved my House Insurance and saved over £900 :) - with my car insurance that's £1400 I've saved this year by moving over." NeRo, zroadster.org

    "Just want to say a huge thanks for the service you guys have provided so far. The exhaust mod has been added free of charge. Really pleased with how you operate." raymondbowon, FocusSTOC.com

    "Very impressed with the service and for beating my renewal quote by a healthy margin. Also insured my Favorit through yourselves as the policy was £200 cheaper than anywhere else! I'm very impressed and hopefully I will keep using you guys in future. Thanks." pierst1, Briskoda.net

    "Another new customer here, they saved me about £85 on the renewal price, happy days...." fabmar, FiestaST OC

    My quotes with the main insurers are usually ridiculous due to postcode, Chris Knott beat them, only 45 quid mind, but considering other sponsors this forum couldn't even cover me this was good service.

    @ChrisKnottIns happy to say I've gone with yourselves as you were the cheapest and by far the best company to speak to. I've called all four insurance providers on this forum and they couldn't get anywhere near your quote.

    I have to say Cathy was a joy to speak to :)

    Hopefully i will get the same service next year

    It has come to our attention that some forum members think we are linked with one of the other insurance providers out there because a name similar to ours appears against transactions on their bank statements.

    So we wanted to make it clear, for the avoidance of doubt, that there is NO commercial relationship between us and any of the other providers on car club forums.

    Actually there is good natured competition between all the providers on the forums and we come across each other often. But we are all completely separate, so you should always call Chris Knott Insurance for a quote and shouldn't think you've heard our quote just because you've called one of the other firms.

    Chris Knott's quoteline is 0800 917 2274 / 01424 200477. Please quote your unique club code to make sure you receive the full benefit.

    ***UPDATE: 2015 with CHRIS KNOTT INSURANCE***

    Happy New Year to you all.

    Thanks so much for your custom in 2014, especially in response to the Chris Knott Prize Draws at the tale end of the year. I'm pleased to announce that December's winner was Mrs D Woodfin from Bolton. She bagged herself a £100 Amazon Voucher and all she did was ask us for a quote.

    During the early part of this year we're aiming to start negotiations with the companies on our insurer panel to alter the scheme access criteria, allowing us to quote competitively for even more car club/forum members. We'll keep you posted as things develop.

    It's been a great first year for the scheme with Audi-Sport.net. As things stand many car club/forum members are saving money every day but we'd obviously like more members to be able to benefit from calling Chris Knott Insurance. In just the last week we've signed up another 12 forums - forums who've heard good things about Chris Knott and want their members to be able to access great car insurance deals too.

    If you'd like us to quote when your modified or standard car is due for renewal please call the Chris Knott Club Line on 0800 917 2274 or 01424 200477 and mention this forum to receive the full benefit.

    Remember, if we couldn't beat your quote before the reason may now have passed, especially if you were just a bit too young for the scheme when you called us. Please include us again in the mix this year.

    best,
    Nick

    Calling all Audi-Sport.net members!!

    As a car club/forum member you could save money on your standard/modified/multicar insurance when you ask Chris Knott to quote.

    The current sign-up rate under our special scheme for car club members is 45% - that means we win the business on almost every other quote offered. It means we're regularly beating the likes of Admiral, Direct Line, other brokers and online price comparison sites too.

    IN THE TOP 10
    This club/forum is performing particularly well. We looked at the whole of last year and it seems you're #9 in our Top 10 clubs for 2014.

    1. Alfa Romeo Owners Club
    2. Volvo Owners Club
    3. Saab Owners Club
    4. Briskoda
    5. Z4 Forum
    6. Vectra-c/Signum Owners Club
    7. Mercedes-Benz Owner
    8. MPS Owners Club
    9. Audi-Sport.net
    10. AlfaOwner.com

    This means your members have got a better chance than most of getting your best quote by giving Chris Knott a call. Why not give us a try this year and find out how much you could save by switching to the club's approved provider, Chris Knott.

    QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274 / 01424 200477 - please mention this club/forum to receive the full benefit.

    best,
    Nick

    These club members are happy with their recent quotes:

    "I've just quoted on the temp c max and had a smoking deal, had discount for being on the forum and another for second car. £240 comp protected no claims, on the c max (remember technically I've had my licence 1 year and me named on Nicci's policy). I'm paying for both cars what I was just paying for the v70r p2 last year, so it worked out good for me." Ettienne, Volvo Performance Club UK

    "Have rang around the insurance companies that are sponsors on the forum. Chris Knott came out cheapest." ChrisST225, FocusSTOC.com

    "Very happy with CK, got a cheap renewal quote. Better than the comparison sites. Nice staff. That spoke English - crazy I know right. And an all round great company to work with. Honestly amazed at how great they have been for me. Will defo stay with them!" John Ansell, Facebook

    UPDATE: **Winners all round...**

    £500 WINNER
    Congratulations to Mr B Windeatt, a member of car club forum MG-Rover.org, who won our £500 competition last month. All he had to do was call for a Chris Knott Car Insurance quote to be entered into the draw. Now his cheque is on it's way.

    WINNING QUOTES FOR MEMBERS
    As for our special club car insurance scheme, this morning I asked our Motor Supervisor where we stood against this month's target. She reported that we're almost at 50% already after just the first week of the month's trading.

    Thanks to everyone who is asking us to quote for their car insurance at the moment. Feedback has been coming in thick and fast. I normally post a few examples from recent days but this time there are so many that I'm having to choose a selection rather than all of them. It has really kicked off and I'm glad we're helping so many car club members to save money as well as providing good broker service.

    Please call us if your car insurance is due soon and mention this forum to access the special car club member scheme and maybe we'll be your best option this year too.

    QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274 (01424 200477 for mobiles)

    Feedback about Chris Knott Car Insurance from happy car club/forum members whose business we've won:

    "I have just taken a policy a out with these guys and they beat my cheapest quote by 10% and may I say the service was top class. I personally was looked after by Kathy who was very helpful and polite. Can't recommend enough." YamYam, FiestaSTOC.com

    "Looks like I'll be taking a policy through you guys. Far cheaper than what my renewal is through my current company!" Ant21, Astra Owners Network

    "RS3 insurance time is just around the corner, so seeing as we insured the TT with them, thought I'd go to Chris Knott Insurance to see what they could do...... Emailed Nick yesterday, had a call today and went through everything, job done, they have literally halved what Admiral's renewal quote was. When the van is due in February I shall be calling them up for that too... It's nice to see an insurance specialist actually deliver a good service and save us money. Too many promise good rates on high performance cars but never seem to get close to 'normal' insurance companies quotes. They also gave me £20 off for already having a policy with them..... And being an Audi-Sport.net member....." Veneeringman, Audi-Sport.net

    "They smashed my renewal and beat my cheapest quote. It saved me £232 (Jan). A good way towards taxing it for 12 months." PaulRS3, Audi-Sport.net

    "Took an insurance policy out with you over the weekend. Really happy with the service and really chuffed with my quote. Cheapest out of everybody I tried. Thanks." AdamJonezy, Briskoda.net

    "Just got my girlfriend's TT insured with you guys today - gave you a quote I'd got from Confused and you guys managed to beat it by over a £100 :thumbs: Girlfriend is a happy bunny :)" chirag1988, 350z-uk.com

    "Could I just add Nick, that I had exceptional service by a lovely lady called Kathy, very polite and helped me with my questions regarding my quote this evening with a competitive price. Please pass on this feedback!" Dean, ClubPolo

    "Just bought insurance with CK and have to say the experience was fantastic and they beat all previous quotes from the likes of Brentacre and Sky... Staff couldn't be more helpful so looking forward to a smooth year with them, definitely worth a call." jmayna, Abarthisti forum

    They say that if you wait long enough everything comes back into fashion. That's certainly what's happened with 0800 freephone numbers as, since 1st July, 0800 calls are now FREE on all mobiles as well as landlines.

    We'll continue to advertise the Chris Knott geographic number (01424 200477) alongside our freephone number for a little while yet but you can start using our 0800 917 2274 number from your mobiles with immediate effect.

    We look forward to your call if your car insurance is due for renewal soon.

    You can use the same 0800 number for our Breakdown Cover, GAP Insurance and Home Insurance too.

    best,
    Nick

    TESTIMONIALS
    These guys called us and received great savings in the last few days:

    "Year after year beaten all other quotes. This year managed to drop my renewal by nearly £150 and beating the competition! 5*" David A Dodgson, Facebook Review

    "I'd like to take some time to thank Chris Knott Insurance for beating my renewal quote of £1554 by £150+. I've had my licence for over a year but didn't get insured straight away, so for 1 year's no claims around my postcode, that was a super saving. Even the choice of paying monthly was low, my original provider would have been in the 2k mark if I chose to pay monthly! Hopefully next year you will do the same and save me big £££. Thanks to Nick for setting this up :good:" Connolly3000, R32OC

    "You guys just beat the cheapest quote with an insurer I've never heard of on GoCompare, with a decent named company and with my other half on the policy. Well pleased with that outcome. :)" scruffy_ Type R Owners

    "3 years in a row now I've not had to move insurers." beckiejmc, Astra Owners Network

    "I switched to them this year.. Beat all quotes I got plus offered more extras like 'Driving Other Cars'... hopefully same again next year" Thom89, Astra Owners Network

    "I switched to you guys this year and you saved me over £300 compared to my renewal! Let alone the other quotes I had got." Ant21, Astra Owners Network

    "Already have my car with CK, but wanted to see if I could get SWMBO's car cheaper when her renewal came around, CK beat it by £25. But then the mrs did some comparison sites and beat that by another £20. I really wanted her to go with CK, but thought "its already £45 less than her original renewal with her old company, the £25 off is probably as good as they can do".....but Ian had a look and managed to knock off a further £5 from the cheapest quote we found! :clap: So that's 2 cars (and another friend) all with Chris Knott. Thanks for the great service guys!" robt100, Briskoda

    So after reading some of the testimonials on here I decided to get a quote from Chris Knott for my brand new Audi S3 that's getting delivered in September.

    After explaining to the lady on the phone that I had heard about Chris Knott on the audi-sport website she went ahead with the usual questions..

    Long story short.....I was told that Chris Knott insurance will not insure me on a "brand new" car even though i have 6 years no claims! I was then told to drive my new car for 1 year to gain more experience in it and then to call back after 12 months.

    Must say I'm quite disappointed.

    Has anyone heard of this in the past?

    Not exactly, but after insuring my 2.0T A4 with Chris Knott for years, they were hugely uncompetitive when I asked them to quote for a 2 year old S5 (I am late 30s, no accidents, 10+ yrs NCB). I guess they just don't like "S" cars...

    Sorry about that but we do mention in post #1 about the need to have a minimum 12 months experience of a car of similar performance. It keeps the scheme safe for the majority.

    Thank you for the reply, What do you class as similar? I have owned a VW scirocco for 3 years with only 40 less BHP than the S3. Also with a DSG box.

    That should be OK then. I wonder why we didn't want to know. Did we ask what you'd been driving up until now?

    Interesting but I've a 2011 Audi RS3 (was RAC) and 2010 Audi TT roadster (was SAGA) and transferred both to these guys.

    I had no issues with communication and or the quotes both of which were accepted.

    Next year I'll be giving them a chance to quote on our A2 (currently Adrian Flux who was way £££s over with the RS3) as well...

    And no, I don't know 'em or have anything to do with 'em other than they provide my 2015/16 insurance.

    This reminds me of the age old catch 22 of employers not wanting staff without experience, but employees needing a job to get the experience in the first place.

    Realistically, what do you expect people to do here? Go with a competitor first of all, and then come back to yourselves after 12 months? How are people going to get experience on a car with said performance, without being able to be insured on that car first of all?

    This brings back flashbacks of just how utterly ridiculous it was trying to get on the performance car ladder with regards to insurance.

    UPDATE: a note about competitiveness

    Looking at the YTD figures Chris Knott Insurance has won 38% of all new quotes offered during 2015. That's really good and means we're frequently beating the best rate that members can find anywhere else.

    And, if you thought that was just a ploy to attract new clients and then hike the rates in year 2, you'd be wrong - we keep 82% of policies at renewal. This is because we try to offer consistent pricing (as long as there have been no claims or other changes during the year). We're all about trust and long-term relationships, not wildly fluctuating quotes.

    Please give us a call if your insurance is due soon and we'll do all we can to find you the best deal - sometimes that involves using your best alternative quote to negotiate with the insurers who are vying for your business.

    To find out how much you could save with Chris Knott you should call 0800 917 2274 (now FREE for mobile phones too).

    If you call before the end of September we'll also enter you for our current prize draw to win £150 mods/parts/accessories of your choice - see our other posts for details.

    best,
    Nick

    TESTIMONIALS
    Feedback about Chris Knott's prices and service, gathered in just the last week...

    "Just wanted to give a shout out to all the people at Chris Knotts, not only did they beat my renewal quote but also improved on the offerings, and that was including the fact my previous best had an extra 10% off for my dashcam! Top knotch service and an unbeatable price, thanks guys and gals!" spikedog, MPS Owners

    "Well after the hunting and chatting to a few folk, then receiving my renewal quote from Sheila's Wheels which has mysteriously jumped up £100 without any mods declared. I called Chris Knott. Had a chat with the lovely Cathy and taking into consideration the mods that have and are being done got a quote of £200 less than Sheila's who were very concerned about the mods and really did not really understand the mod issue. Hastings jumped dramatically when I mentioned the mods especially the uprated front brakes going on next month so I dropped them out. All in all I have a much better policy, declared mods, better excess and other addon's for £440. Which when you consider my Coupe is parked on a London residential street at home is not bad." Shel, Hyundai Coupe OC

    "Just changed my car and had a pleasant and effortless time on the phone doing it. As I spoke the lady was simultaneously emailing my new documents over. Premium should have gone up a bit but no charge, swapped my GAP insurance over to my new car as it had over two years to go and all for a modest £15 admin fee. Got off the phone with all new document printing out of my printer and a smile on my face as I was braced for spending out £100 or so. Highly recommend." dagdave, CMax OC

    "I'm with Chris Knotts myself now since there's a fair chunk of mods on the car these days. Think it was Cathy I spoke to as well when I called, pleasant and no faffing around :) Well, no faffing at their end, I called back about 3-4x as kept remembering more mods." Lexo, Hyundai Coupe OC

    "You beat my previous insurer by £200 with the modifications declared and so easy to deal with. Many thanks." Sherri Joyce, Facebook

    "ALSO a HUGE thanks once again from me! Did a shop around with another company, they sent me [their] quote cheaper, Knott were sent this quote and matched (even beat it by £20), so this is the FIRST TIME in over 16+ yrs of driving I've ever paid for a policy in one go! Very happy again. Cheers guys." vwnutant, UKPassats

    "Rang you up today and you beat my best quote so I insured through you. Thanks." Outofthi5world, Briskoda

    According to the British Insurance Premium Index, car insurance premiums have again risen during the third quarter of 2015 - this time by 4.8%. The index quote has increased to £569 (a rise of nearly £26 over the three months ending 30th September).

    I'm pleased to say that because we attract safer drivers, such as car enthusiasts like you, the Chris Knott average premium currently sits at £337, some £232 lower than the index.

    But it's not just cost savings that Chris Knott offers...

    You "ALMOST" had me this year but unfortunately due to my age/lack of ownership with my S3 you where unable to insure me If/when I go to stage 2+ so for that reason I had to go with Adrian Flux this time. However once this year's insurance is up and I've had more experience etc I will certainly try you again as your overall business/approach seem's excellent and I was very happy with the chap I spoke to who wasn't trying to force me into anything, gave me great advice and was also very friendly (Ian Wilis) I think he was called please give him some good feedback :)

    I'll be in touch next year, All the best.

    Disappointed to learn that you wont offer insure on the S3 if I have not driven a similarly powered vehicle for more than 1 year .............

    No other insurer is bothered by this statement. Will be taken up my excellent deal with Direct Line.

    Was worth giving you a shot.
