    Default Alloys arrived c/o Glen..fitted

    Reet! Glen sent me the alloys I bought from him, packaged well, very happy. Flew down the road to get them put on and one tyre needed changing but I knew that.

    All fitted:



    Now, being sensible-ish I called my insurance company to inform them that I had fitted the alloys. You know what happened next? They stuck another £200 on my premium. SOAB.

    £200 extra just for changing to another set of standard Vx wheels?!!! That's outrageous!! Were they aware that they were wheels that came standard on another model? I'd be going back arguing the point. A bit extra, maybe, but £200?! It's not as if you've fitted hugely expensive 19/20" ones.

    Yeah really annoyed me...they explained that...the alloys are charged at a percentage of the existing premium.

    My premium is high because a nice young lady drove into the back of me last year, admitted it was her fault and then went to her insurance company and lied through her back teeth..lots of drawings and details later - I lost and she won. My no claims dissapeared and my premium shot through the roof!

    Tax disc up high...Hmmm, it just wouldnt stick down low, think the dealer waxed the window with something and the tax disc holder wouldnt stick. Just left it there tbh, in fact its probably better up high from a visibility point of view.
