    I'm about to renew my insurance, LV want £440 fully comp 2.2dti LS, cheapest I've found is Tesco £343 which whom I'm going to go with. I know it's all down to where you live but I'm 32 with 14 years no claims bonus! WHY can't i get cheaper??

    As for the ARB bushes, think cos it's SRi it's the thicker ones, not 100% though.

    Does depend on alot off different factors. Ie: age, address, mods, engine size.

    Sorry to hear that, will have to keep shopping about.

    Vehicle : Veccy C

    Trim : SRI

    Engine : CDTi


    Default

    I used hasting for a few years, they were cheap, then i found out why.
    We got involved in a NON - FAULT accident, they didnt want to know.. refused to deal with us at first, when you ring up, the same girl answer but when asked for her name it changes everytime - ask if uyou can speak to her, sorry dont know anyone with that name, the firm they used to fix the car did a less then perfect spray job, said they sent letters when they didnt, refused to get our excess back...it went on. Only after a threat of court, focused their attention.
    still took a very long time, but in the end I gave up.. they won.
