    S-Tronic S3 costing around £500 more than manual

    £1200 for an XR3i ? Ouch... In '83 I was 19 and paying £440 for a 3.1 Capri... Ok it was only TPF&T (that was a lot cheaper back then) and not Fully Comp but affordable, especially considering I was only getting 17mpg.... hahaha And yet, even with only one single claim in all my 39 years of...

    Hidden insurance loading on my car...

    Got my insurance renewal through for my A5, only had the car 10 weeks so this is the first 'full year' quote on the car. It seemed high so I did the usual and checked online for quotes, all of which seemed high, much higher than when I checked this model before deciding to buy one. Out of...

    Why is NCD capped at 9+ years?

    Hmmmm... so by this theory, the knife thrower that has never killed any of his assistants in his 30 years of performing daily, is more likely to kill in his next performance than the one who has killed all of his assistants in his 8 years of performing.... Errrr.... I detect a slight flaw in...

    Why is NCD capped at 9+ years?

    I understand that, to a certain degree, but surely there should be some way to highlight the fact that I am a better risk than someone who has made more claims than I have. I have claimed on my insurance twice in 38 years.... someone else could've claimed a lot more times during the same period...

    Why is NCD capped at 9+ years?

    Hi. Just wondered if any of the insurance companies on here can give me an explanation... I've been driving for 38 years. I've had one car broken into in a hospital carpark in 1992 and one claim 14 years ago for a minor carpark dent, both covered by NCD protection... so in theory I have 38...

    RNS-E to glove box CDC cable configuration help.... please.

    Hi. I have an RNS-E head unit and I've bought an 8E0 035 111 D cd changer (why did those numbers do that? haha). I also bought the CD-RF 04 12 pin quadlock to 12 pin cable to connect the 2 together. However, when I checked the cable I noticed that none of the wire colours match up with those...
