    We've just renewed ours, was with Admiral for a couple of years but they wanted £847.00 this year to insure the RS3 and the wifes A1 Black Edition. Had gone up over £250 in 12 months. We are both mid 40's, max no claims etc, etc and the cars are garaged and live in a resonable area. So have shopped around and now insured with Privilege and have saved £410 into the bargain for the same cover....Phoned Admiral to so if we could get near it, not a chance they still wanted £680.00...bye bye..... :w00t:

    Admiral initially had a good deal with the RS3, I suppose it being a new model.

    There has been a number of Cat D RS3s around.. could be the reason of the hike in prices..

    Can you share how much Adrian Flux are offering? is there a contact person?

    Cheers

    OK, BLUEY's insurance ALL sorted today with Milltek Cat By-Pass pipes, winter wheels and tyres, and a Pipercross panel filter declared/documented; ALL @ £305.13 with the RAC.

    And the guys on the end of the phone at RAC were enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and reasonable.

    SOLD! :thumbsup:

    Afternoon,

    I would like to look into this for you and see if they refused a quote just for the value?

    Please confirm your full name, postcode and contact telephone number.

    Many thanks

    Dan

    It doesn't matter now, I have renewed my policy with Admiral after receiving a substantial discount over the original renewal price.

    Thanks anyway, maybe next time.

    Sounds daft to me !! there can't be a massive difference between the value of these cars ? Especially with such a short production run.

    I wouldn't mind but they never give you that value in a payout anyway ! Always seems a silly question to ask as we have to buy GAP to cover any shortfall anyway.

    SEE #13 above "And the guys on the end of the phone at RAC were enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and reasonable" and to me these were the only guys who seemed to understand the time-of-day and/or spoke any sense at all so I went with them...

    And I did try those others too including Admiral, Flux, Hastings, Privilege, etc.

    Many insurers are unable to cover intercoolers.

    We can cover them no problem - If you want any help with insuring it please feel free to PM me your details.

    Thanks for the reply Dan will send you some details over do you.

    The wife currently earns no claims discount as a named driver on the RS3 with Admiral. We currently only have one car which is unlikely to change for a few years living in Central London. Could this be carried over to a policy with you and would she continue to earn her own no claims?

    I'll give 'em a go at my next renewal John; Adrian Flux (Dan) certainly seem to be a lot more receptive to new business these days...

    I got a phone call from Admiral this afternoon about the renewal of my existing policy. They have been great with me for the last couple of years but this time my answer was : " Sorry I have just got covered with Adrian Flux for a lot less what you wanted from me ". The guy tried everything to bring the price down, even added a multi-car policy discount but could not match AF price.
    Happy days and £250 better off!! :)
    You next 45bvtc.:thumbs up:
