    All of them. They'll just charge a bit more. Try Adrian flux.

    Admiral. Declared my mods (exactly same as yours) and it added about £40 I think!

    That's well decent. My first year they tried to double my premium just for a map. Think that was Debenhams.

    I was gobsmacked. I will say that I was half way through my term. But even so, cheap as chips. They’ve been very good in the past, too.

    MRC stage 1 as well, new policy with Admiral started today, no one else could get close including all those that advertise as mod friendly.

    Trying to insure an unmodified off the factory line is really a dice throw. With it being modified is on a another planet. I was quoted as high as 1400 or uninsurable for my London/Twickenham post code. Stuffed the details into gocomp... and found GA at 350. Not only post code lottery, also which month/day.. loaded onto the dice. Wonder, what will happen when I come to renew next year..

    I pay £800 ish for Admiral multicar.

    That’s for the TTRS with mods declared and a 2013 Golf 1.6 TDI Bluemotion DSG with a learner driver also on it.

    Absolutely love the Golf...50-60mpg however you drive it, super smooth gearbox, comfy ride and good tech. A £7k bargain! I wanted a car I was happy leave anywhere, but it still looks really smart and is mint.

    I tried every permutation on Comparethemarket. My post code was the cheapest out of all my work colleagues despite them living in “better” areas. I also added my boss on my policy which reduced the premium by about 10%! Finally, putting in my driving licence number also reduced it by about another 10%. It’s really worth playing around with it all while obviously keeping it correct and legal.

    I am 30’s, max NCD, no points or accidents.

    I used AIB after my existing insurer wouldn’t insure me with the engine re-map! Aged 46, no points and full no claims!!!

    AIB quoted cheaper than my existing quote so just cancelled and moved the policy.

    Yeah I know what you mean, I’ve never had a decent quote from Adrian Flux, yet others always recommend them for high performance cars!

    same here, Adrian flux, Chris Knott did not come through for me either. Initially, was given a comparable quote, then when referred back into the brokers, it all fell apart and could not be honoured. May be having an ageless number plate spooks the underwriters. Its definitely a mystery.

    Yep, they told me the same when I was with them, even though I emphasised factory fitted by Audi at the time car was built.

    We have 4 unmodded cars. All with Direct Line. cheapest by far, s3 is £400, rs3 is £575, 2 old cars are about £200 each. All full protected NCD, hire car, legal assistance. Noone else came close. They said they may consider mods but no more than 20% extra power. Issue is i would have to get the work done then they quote....no thanks. Anyway, the s3 and rs are still under warranty .

    S3 is on an extended warranty - defo worth keep extending as cheaper if you let it lapse - only £400 a year with £0 excess, oem parts and labour, most things are covered (though there are a few exceptions)
