    Default My renewal

    £550 for my 1.6i 08 Design without any cosmetic mods. Im 26 with 3 years driving and 3 years ncb. No accidents non fault insured on my partners car too. Cars parked on a drive in a decent area and on a security patrolled car park when at work.
    Is this expensive?

    Im gonna try Chris Knott and do a few quotes just looking for peoples opinion.

    Vehicle : SRi


    Engine : Z22SE (2.2 Petrol)

    I take it you mean 1.8 or are you driving an Irish/Opel as they did the 1.6 over there? I'm 33 and my quote comes back the same as yours, all details the same except its parked on the road at home.

    My own insurance company want £702, a £200 increase on last year! Pays to shop around.

    Called around a few places. My company insure were useless and told me in order to cancel my policy I just cancel my DD???
    There best quote was on 18" alloys and debadged. Didnt even mention HIDs as I forgot £532+legal cover at £20 and excess of £350

    Chris Knott almost seemed uninterested and when I told her I had 3years driving she said is that all which kinda disgruntled me. Anyway same specs £534.99 inc legal + either £50 or £150 excess and werent too forthecoming with what mods could be done or what they would cost. She said it changes every day.

    Adrian Flux £522 inc legal + £200 excess again not too forthecoming with costs on extras and actually seemed surprised when I said I had changed the alloys c'est la vie.

    Swinton £700 lol but they did put me onto Sky and Aplan???

    Sky got back to me and could insure me through Chawcer? who arent =concerned about non performance mods ie lowering and spoiler etc £521 inc legal + £250 excess

    What are peoples opinions. Will HIDs bump it much more or reduce and who are chawcer?

    I must admit Iwas quite surprised about Chris Knott cnsidering all the hype and that it was inc the Vec C discount

    yeah the best price I could get off there was quick fit with only alloys declared as no where to put indicator tints and HIDs and that was still more.

    Hi its no drama. I work in sales my self and its just how I felt. What was the excess? and what mods can be done without an increase or having to pay supplements?
