    Sorry, but the forum cannot possibly answer that for you. You need to do the legwork yourself. Go onto some price comparison websites, get some quotes, and choose the one you think is best.

    Like JoJo said, why not just ask your insurer/broker?

    Always presuming, of course, that you can't glean the information simply be reading the renewal documentation in full.

    These sites are great for standard cars! Forget it if your car is modified!

    I would give it 10 minutes between going between the sites to give them a chance to update, as they now you are shopping around, and from my experience, use You're So MoneySupermarket as the last one for the best deals. And always get a quote on directline aswell, as they never use rely on these sites, you never know...

    APR is the interest, but to take it off you would need to divide by 143.7 then times by 100. As its 43.7% on top of the original figure.
    therefore it would be £1809, that's providing you can pay it in one go without the fees.

    £68! That's cheap!
    I paid £195 fully comp on my mk2 a few months ago, I'm 30 with 10yrs ncb, did have the misses on it too though.
    The S3 costs me £340 :)

    Admiral!!!!! Run.... run away now while you can. I will never part with another penny again to that bunch of lame half witted morons ever again. Their whole group is a complete shower of sh*t (Admiral, Bell, Elephant & Diamond). If your car is modified they get worse still. Pay double their premium and come claim time that extra will be worth every single penny and then some.

    Useless cretins!
