As the title states gentlemen, I'm currently with A. Flux and just had a renewal through so am now looking for companies that can better the quote.

Note: All modifications declared.

Cheers,

Hi Lee,

I think we are the ONLY ESS owners in the UK ;)

I am with Adrian Flux too. My renewal is on 28th January.

I hope Adrian Flux did not get back to you with a ridiculous renewal quote ?

Try these guys, as Barnie suggests. I did last year and they were about as good as Adrian Flux, which was the cheapest at the time, but went with Adrian Flux in the end :

Call my broker Christian Wheatley at Keith Michaels Insurance. 020 8288 0677. They are perfomance car specialists. Say I recommended him! I came across him via my brother when he worked at Bell & Colville, the Prodrive Impreza people.

He has beaten every internet or big comany quote I've thrown at him for the last 6 years. Brilliant service too, and he always remembers you on the phone. When I took out an armed police, diplomatic protection car with my old 405 Le Mans a few years back, he was superb. No quibles, very quick payment, protected NC, the works.

My M5, all mods declared, with 7 points, (slap my wrists), full NC and SW11 postcode (bad one for some reason) I pay £1600. The next best I had was over £2000.

Cheers,
Barney

Hi Kumaran,

Waiting for Keith Michaels to get back in touch at the moment.

Just so you don't have the 'no stirling sign' excuse again, just press 'Alt' and type 156 on the number pad then release 'Alt' = £ :)

Quick update, just been in touch with Keith Micheals again and they are saying that the underwriters aren't liking modified cars in certain postcodes, especially those in major cities. It's not looking promising as everyone I tried so far has said this also, with only A.Flux able to quote. Hope it doesn't end up like this with no options to choose between insurers.

Maybe move house just so I can insure the red lady?

A.Flux are the only ones that will even quote, everyone else takes down the details, speak to the manager and then it's ''sorry sir we can't cover the car with the modifications fitted, but we can do the standard car for 500''.:3:

Not looking good fellers, just got shown the door by another two companies.

Get a trade insurance, say valeter or mobile mechanic as a (fake) job and bob's yours uncle!

On trade they don't ask about the mods :goldcup:

Ithink some companies may like to see proof that your a business within automotive industry...i.e.. copies of invoices etc.
I,ve been told this by one broker!!!

try a-plan, quoted around 12-1400, that 6 years no claims, no points, profession doctor, kt6 post-code
mods: supercharger conversion e39 m5, wheels,bbk, coilovers, strut braces, body kit. they have a branch who do specialised car conversions, engine transplants etc. etc. - my enquiry was almost too normal for them. they base their quotes on what car's you've driven before etc. so if it's your first high power car, your premium will be higher which makes sense.

Keith Michaels wouldn't touch it feller, postcode again. This is becoming a lame excuse by the insurers this year, there has never been a problem before and my area hasn't changed to warrant the 'change of heart'.

Will be giving A-plan a call today, will let you know what comes back.

I'm with A-plan and car is covered as a nowack conversion. I agree there are few companies out there offering sensible quotations for daily driven high powered or modified cars, classic policies aren't an option unless you can limit mileage.

The underwriter with A-plan is 'Markerstudy' and from a little research they don't seem to have the best customer service?

I google'd them as I'd never heard of them and they don't fair well. Though talking to Chris at A-plan he's saying that they are moving away from main stream insurance and going solely into top end/ performance insurance.

Best not need to claim then to find out!
