    Labour is all paid by them .....and I only have to pay for 50% of the parts.

    They rang my up yesterday to give me a better deal .....which was :

    The removal of £50.00 excess

    I'm now able to source my own parts for a claim. This is on the condition you keep the proof of purchase and still get them fitted at a VAT registered garage. (page 11, section 3 of your policy document will still apply).

    My monthly outgoing to pay for this ain't dropped thou.....I pay £38.60 Every month.

    So guys do you think this is a good deal :uhm:

    As I'm now able to source any part from anywhere and supply the garage to fit it so it would be cheaper for me instead of the garage buying some expensive part that would cost me a bit more.

    So all I have to pay for is 50% of the part and I can source the part myself.

    In a word no! Maybe that's just me or it depends on how hard you drive the car!!

    Can't really comment on your deal but my WD insurance costs about £300 a year for my 2006 Sportback with 75k.

    New turbo with all the bits etc. cost me £200 nett and they paid up in 5 days ( I had to pay garage first )

    For peace of mind I can't fault it.
