    I go through this process every year on 4 different cars! lol

    You have to understand that renewal quotes are automated, so sent out by a computer system! If you want a better/best price, you have to physically work for it. Although I have found recently with the ASN site sponsors on a modified car policy, their renewal rates are usually a decent effort. I did phone around, and came back to renew with my current company, as the saving of £5 wasn't substantial enough to warrant me swopping insurance companies.

    I also find moneysupermarket better than gocompare for quotes, specifically for standard road cars though.

    Be grateful yours is 'only' £46pm... mine is £146pm :fearscream:
    I get your point though, customer loyalty no longer exists and renewal prices are now worse than signing up as a new policy holder all over again.

    I drive an Audi A7 (V6 3.0l) although I don't think its entirely the car that bumps the price up... I live in a part of greater London that has already had 9 shootings this year (some how that doesn't make it into the main stream news) - which ties into drug and vehicle crime and I dread to think how many uninsured drivers there are around me. Also I think (based on your username) I am 2yrs younger than you and that may also play a factor.

    I just spend a day or 2 playing one company off against the other.

    Renewed mine with Chris Knott fully comp £55 for 10 months plus a deposit

    Can't moan really as I had a accident last year and got 6 points.

    Get online with the price comparison sites and then phone someone up like Knott and see what they can do. Flux I always find rubbish
