So, having owned a host of high performance bad boys over the past few years most recently being Limited Edition Le Mans Jaguar 5.0 Supercharged (510bhp) I treated myself to a nice A7 3.0 BiTDI a few months back. No accidents, claims, convictions etc and aged 45 and always paid around £300-£400 for my insurance and when swapping over from he XFR Direct Line told me on phone "That's fine as only £10 difference in premium for remainder of policy". Full appreciate that the £10 is pro rata and expected my policy to perhaps go from £330 to say...........£410 (ish). My Christ, Direct Line you've certainly surpassed yourselves with this comedy renewal - £730 !!!!!!!! I've not paid that figure since I had a full head of hair, baseball cap and my gleaming white Renault 5 Gt Turbo 26 years ago pmsl. Quick comparison on moneysupermarket and its £410. Hang your head in shame Direct Line. Any other companies out there interested in new customer fine to PM me.
