who you guys using

Kwik Fit sent me an automated email at £178.97. That won't be with anything declared though. But apart from poly bushes and S3 seats, mine's still standard. My insurance isn't actually due until January, so I wonder what Admiral will quote me this year...

Don't forget though, geography has a HUGE effect on insurance prices. I once moved 200metres, and Admiral tried to charge me an extra £60. I say tried, I didn't let them get away with it. They actually waived it, when I told them how close it was, and how stupid they were being...

I tried to move around the corner and my previous insurer tried charging me £800. More than it cost me for the policy in the first place!

Suffice to say I left them. ;)

I found both greenlight and HIC to be very competitive. Prices were pretty close to each other, but as the HIC quote included protected no claims I went for them, even though I understand greenlight has well known underwriters. Also the chap I spoke to at HIC asked that I give a shout out on the forum at some point!

The quotes were still not far off the £600 mark, but I am 25 living in Birmingham and they beat my renewal by nearly £600!

'Kinell. If that's what it costs to run a modded vRS in Brize, then I'm definitely keeping mine standard. Soddit, if I need more power I'll take the bike out, or drive her 335. Much cheaper to insure, and infinitely better handling...

Yeah, but what's it really worth in the real world? Not much more than a standard one unless you take it to bits.

May not ALWAYS be the best price, but the chaps at Brentacre in Swansea are total legends. I can't use them, coz they won't insure me across Europe, but I've had all kinds of modded Golfs and the Octy with them in the past and they're awesome. Few blokes in an office with a geographical phone number, no call centres, no nonsense.

Try them :)

Greenlight just quoted me £429 all mods declared plus we've moved from a band b area to a band e. It's over £100 cheaper than my renewal quote.

Sent from my phone, using my thumb.

Council tax banding has very little to do with insurance prices. How many claims have originated from the postal code however, have a very large effect. And not just CAR insurance either. Moving to more expensive housing, or less intensively built housing can often reap big rewards in lowering your car insurance.

Not talking about council tax banding matey. Different areas are grouped into different bands on the insurance scheme Hi -Low risk (A to F) Iirc. I've moved from a relatively low band area to a relatively high one according to the banding scheme. All though the area I live in now and in particular my road is actually better and a lot safer than where I have moved from.
