    thinking about getting bluefin

    admiral have quoted me £25 for a 10% power upgrade .

    just wondered if a 10% power upgrade is sufficient to declare as i know bluefin is about 20-25 % depending on the original bhp.

    Anyone with privilege? The cost of the insurance could chage my mind about buying one.

    Yup I'm with Privilege called them on Saturday for a price for mine. £133.50 + £11.55 admin charge. I have 9 months left to run on my cover with them. I'm thinking of going with Superchips as the Sheffield dealer is now across the road from where I park.

    Does anyone know if they will remove and add it back on again FOC for services etc?

    Also does the 10% discount apply ?

    I am with privelige and I paid an extra £130 for 12 months with for a 30% increase. Unlike many insurers which will cover modified cars privelige actually will replace the uprated parts on your car if its knicked or damaged etc etc.

    Whatever the %age increase in bhp, then additional premium is same
    %age of existing premium. This is from direct line.
    Not too bad I suppose.You've got to tell the truth mate.

    Anybody runs my kid over in what I suspect is a chipped car then I'm going to insist in having the car checked and have the bugger criminalised. We've all got to be aware of this and it can happen to us all at the end of the day. It's not a major increase in monthly:friends: premium really.

    Go for it.

    With BLuefin you do it all yourself, you plug it into the OBD port and upload/remove the map when ever you want.

    Thanks Steve I know, but they only do Bluefin for Derv. So I will need to visit a dealer

    Might be a go'er after all then. Good old privilege, this is the 2nd year they've beaten my renal quote and with options like the above I think I'll be sticking with um for a few more years to come.
