    Hey guys, quick one. Just looking for insurance companies which are remap friendly that aren't trying to charge astronomical amounts for premiums.

    Several companies I've tried refuse to quote, 2 have given quotes (elephant £746, Sky £892). I've still a few companies on my list to try, but considering I paid £550 last year, I was hoping to get it for closer to £650 (due to 20% loading for remap) than what I've had so far, usual suspects such as Flux, Greenlight, etc still to be contacted, but has anyone got anyone they could reccomend please.

    Regards

    I know you've already said Greenlight are on your list to contact, but I just thought I'd add an extra recommendation for them. Cheap, mod friendly, easy to deal with - phone them now!! :)

    IMO Flux are rip off merchants. 13yrs no claims, no points, no accidents, car standard (at present), & kept in private car park = £750 a year! They had me over a barrel at the time I bought the A3 as I & had to transfer the insurance to it from another car or effectively lose 70% of what I'd already paid. Needless to say I wont be staying with them come next renewal, especially as their after-sales is utter sh*t.

    Can recommend Sky Insurance. My insurance was reduced by 98 pounds overall compared to Admiral even with a tuning box. Good service too.

  14. Flux charged me £380 for my Golf Anni. Kept with them for my A3 + £70 for remap. Looked after me well when the Anni was written off by a LR Disco

    Thought I'd chip back in on this...

    Currently insured with Adrian Flux, been with them 9+yrs & previously got quoted £750 a year on my car with no mods. Decided to try Greenlight as AF have just been awful the last year or so, same car, but with various (intended) mods + a 50/50 insurance claim I'd previously been told was settled in my favour... Only £460 taking only 9 of my 13yrs NCB into account!

    Definitely pays to shop around!

    I contacted Flux and they gave me a price of £695 - so it coming in the right direction. I've been insured with Greenlight before and had no problems with them, as I said they are on the list to phone.

    Bomasspot - I've been insured with Sky before, and they were generally very competative but last year they outpriced themselves considerably, and this year they are now £200 more than my cheapest quote so far. Even elephant was the best part of £150 cheaper. They sited the fact that my wife is under the age of 30 as a reason for the high premium which was echo'd by Chris Knott when they told me they couldnt quote because I wanted to add my wife as again she was under 30.

    Fortunately the other insurers didnt seem to have a problem with that, I'll continue to shop around till I find something I consider to be acceptable
