    Yesterday i renewed my car insurance (everyone's dreaded payment!)

    Last year i was paying £800 with Adrian Flux and the renewal price they came up with was £759.

    A3 2litre TFSI with declared SuperChips Remap.
    5 Yrs Protected No Claims.
    27yrs Young.
    Car Garaged.


    I then rang Greenlight insurance group and they quoted me £472 with £250 excess and limit of 6000miles.

    So i then spoke to Adrian Flux about how i could get the insurance for almost £300 less and they came back to me and gave me a price of £470 with £300 excess and 7500 miles a year.

    So it just shows its well worth shopping around!

    So anyone looking for car insurance make sure you try Green Light insurance and also Adrian Flux.

    Also it was interesting when i got a quote from direct line just to see what price they'd give me without the remap (they don't do modified cars i was told) and the quote was £430.

    Shows that the remap has only added £40 onto the price which is good!

    DL are a bit good at hiding the 'voluntary excess' though ie compulsory is say £200 and your 'voluntary' is another £200. A bit cheeky.

    I renewed with Chris Knott the other week. Got it down to about £715 after playing them off against Adrian Flux. I get charged through the nose because of the business use, high mileage and the fact it's leased. Greenlight wouldn't touch me.

    ...and i'm bein shafted by my insurance because i have recently had a bump (none-fault someone hit me) (in last month of policy) so claim still outstanding - upshot goes down as a fault claim until settled, and is only re-adjusted mid-term for the remainder of the term (not the beginning already used bit)
