    loads of irmy bits for the interior, door pins/handbrake handle/gearknob/tax-disk holder/alloy pedals, mud plaps (colour-coded) flat-blade-wipers, irmy grill, chrome signum fog surrounds, chrome door mirror covers....the list is endless m8 and these shouldn't make to much of a difference to your ins premium

    if you don't want it to affect your insurance too much, then you should stick to Irmscher stuff as it's all 'factory options' ( at least thats what my insurance has been told) and is looked on more kindly that some of the stuff you can buy.. Interior stuff is easy and realitivly cheap to do.. then how about a rear spoiler?..and if you want wheels, the world is your oyster as most late VX wheels have the same pattern and PCD on the studs so many designs are avaliable..I'd lay off anything that alters the performance at the moment as that will hit the insurance hard..

    dont know if it will or not to be honest m8, a body kit alters the way your car looks and would be more desirable to car theives is the answer you will probably get, so just phone your ins company and ask them what you can do without the price increasing to much if any-thing at all....

    i fitted a spoiler on one of my old cars( cavalier 1.8 ls ), and the insurance classed it as a full body kit, ok it was 8 years ago so it might be differnt now, but be warned. plus dont tint your windows cus they want to make it illegal, unless your car has them from standerd.

    Had to declare all irmscher parts and wheels and my policy went up £160 a year but the policy will pay out on these extras if stolen or written off etc. so worth it at the end of the day

    Best thing to do is ring your insurance company and ask. IMO a body kit is a bad idea as they usually end up looking ****e, try a nice tasteful front and rear Irmy spoiler
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
