Modified car insurace?

Postby Raver » 14 Aug 2007, 11:39

Mine is due for renewal soon but it seems it has increased rather than decreased as they cant get the same "amazing" deal they got me last yr. Am currently driving a mk2 golf gti, but need a company that i will be able to insure the chevette with once its built, the only problem is the engine comversion from 1.3 - 1.6 ford engine and as we know most companies really dont like that.

Any ideas guys?

Insurance

Postby Jeff Brown » 14 Aug 2007, 16:44

I have the rally car insured with Competition Car Insurance. They were the cheapest I could find and offer a range of policies (limited mileage, etc) that can keep the cost down. Their website is www.competitioncarinsurance.co.uk.

I tried www.moris.co.uk but they were well expensive.

I understand that Adrian Flux does policies for kit cars etc, so might be worth a try.

Good luck.

I'm paying 160 fully comp with full breakdown here and in europe..for both me and hannah. It was 130 and they only wanted an extra £30 for the rotor motor conversion. This is with footman james. :D

Or an Evo?

BTW, to the UK guys - auto' insurance ISN"T a legal requirement down here but if you do get it, it's a fair bit cheaper as injury 'insurance' is covered by the Government, 80% of income and 'almost' free treatment.

And 100kph speed limits, strictly enforced by the Political incompetents and their Gestapo - ignoring virtually all the dangerous driving, red light running, disquaified/repeat drunk drivers, etc.

Swings and roundabouts :(

Sounds just like this country then. The number one menace in our society today are drivers travelling at 67mph in a 60 limit. Never mind all the burglars, murderers and drug dealers, as long as otherwise law-abiding motorists have their lives destroyed because they went a bit fast, then all is clearly well with the world.

Cynical, moi?!

Blenheim to be precise...nelson and blenheim always battling out the most sunshine thing! I think nelson wins because the blenheim sun just reflects back off all the retired silvertops hair.

Great QUIET roads though!

The coast road to CH CH must be one of the best!! and down the wet coast - bliss.
