    Good link. Always good to have ammo. Insurance Co.'s look for any excuse to bump it up, but using that as a reason is just totally ridiculous. They should be positively and actively encouraging the use of safer tyres etc not actually penalising you for it. Some of these companies really do need to have a good hard look at themselves and maybe even put some grown-ups in charge.....liberty taking wasters.

    Modding your car from 19 to 17

    if all wheels are OEM how does this get classified as a mod

    It makes no sense. If it could've come from Audi like it is it's not a mod. No need to tell the insurance company.

    not sure about Audi but just have fitted some winters to my bmw, the tyre spec sticker by the drivers door lists the tyre size/rating for winter tyres so those are what i have fitted. Can't remember if the audi stickers list winter tyres, but if they do i can't see any reason to tell the insurance. Also my insurer, directline, often charge me a admin charge for sending out new certificates, adding drivers etc, even if they don't charge for the actual insurance.
