    With all the new S4's being / waiting to be delivered at the moment thought it might be a good idea to start this thread

    So I'll start the ball rolling

    I paid £208 for 12 months cover with Aviva for my new S4. Policy is fully comp. protected NCD, £500 excess, garaged, 8000 miles per year, the good lady wife & I to drive, (both the wrong side of 1/2 century (just mind lol)) + the other usual benefits

    What you paying or what quotes you getting people's

    Im 25 and my B8.5 S4 Avant is only 320 fully comp with Admiral. 8 years NCB, and two non fault accidents. I believe the excess totals 350 for me.

    My previous 370z was around 630 or so.

    £260, 13k miles, wife and I, £700 excess with 9ish years protected NCB and 3 points SP30, 32 in rural Aberdeenshire. We also have a corsa 1.3 cdti on the same set up (bar excess) which costs nearly as much but is probably only a 10th of the value... Insurance eh?

    Cheapest I could have got was around £300 (£51,250 with £500 XS, 49, 6K, garaged), but I opted to go for a mod-friendly insurer now so that I have less hassle when the time comes, especially since a stage 2 could mean up to a +45% power increase which many insurers won't cover. So I'm paying around £450 (with £300 XS IIRC). In hindsight I should have stated the discounted price of my car instead of the retail price since I also have GAP insurance (vehicle replacement).

    Very close to your deal with Aviva but £10 less, probably due to 6k vs your 8k mileage limit. I tried my current insurers Admiral first but they were nearly £100 more than Aviva.
    I have to say that when Aviva quoted me I though there must be something wrong for it to be that cheap as I was expecting about £400 but they verified it over the phone no problem.

    £450 with Prestige. Mods declared, 9 years NCB, 32 years old, 8k mileage and wife named driver.

    'Average' postcode, neither good or bad.
    Was coming in very low £300's unmodded. Actually the same price as the mk4 Golf 1.4 I temporarily had!

    Cheaper than my last modded ED30.

    I must say I'm quite surprised by how high people have their excess set. I have mine as low as possible (compulsory from the provider only). If I'm paying annually for my insurance, which is there to protect all parties in case of an accident, the last thing I want to do it lay out hundreds of pounds to make a claim. I pay my insurance and I want it to cover me with as little mither as possible......that's what I pay my insurance for.

    Upping my excess from £100 to £400 only knocks about £50 off my premium so if I have to claim in the next 6 years I'd break even....not that I plan on claimin, but you never know.


    By the way, I'm with MoreThan and I must say they are brilliant. Had an at fault a few years back and they dealt with everything for me, zero hassle. My claim didn't effect my premium either, which I was amazed by. Also found them to be the cheapest of the big players for me.

    So it's renewal time. Best quote I've seen so far is £176 from Aviva but comes with an £850 excess. Ouch. Min I can reduce the excess to is £650 (£500 compulsory + £150 voluntary). With £650 excess, plus protected NCD plus legal it rises to £243.

    Aside from the high excess it's a pretty good quote. Most of the rest are £260+ and my Allianz renewal was £354.

    Renewed with Aviva as was the best price (all things considered) despite the excess being higher than I would like. Excesses in general seemed higher this year than last year. Details:

    Aviva

    Fully comp + legal cover + protected NCD
    Car kept on drive at night.
    £650 excess (£500 vehicle + £150 voluntary - £150 is the lowest I could set)
    Premium £243

    Well, I said I'd be happy if I got away with paying double @scotty76's £243. So I guess I'm very happy indeed.

    Fully comp + legal expenses + protected NCB
    Car kept on driveway overnight in South East London
    £300 excess, me and wife to drive (she never will, she's only on there in case I have a funny turn), 10,00 miles a year.
    Premium £369.

    The insurer is Mulsanne, and it was arranged through A&A, which is the trading name of the broker we know on the forum as Prestige.

    Lol - Quite a few of us on the B8 section ;) :D
    @Dippy - In their online quote system it allows you to check a check box saying your cars modified. So I would say yes

    Insurance not due until September but you prompted me to have a look @Bristle Hound as I'd heard costs were on the up. Indeed, that seems to be the case, quick search on moneysupermarket yielded a best quote of £305 which is £62 more than last year's renewal. Hmmm. :(
