Heres where I get confused by insurance companies. Just tried HIC for a quote today.
I'm 38, full no claims, no points, no accidents.
My astra has the 16v bits (engine, gearbox, brakes, complete back axle) has a K&N air filter and a Piper exhaust. Sits on mk1 GTE wheels, no ICE, alarmed, immobiliser, kept in locked garage .. oh and limited mileage (3k)
I valued it at 1,250 (prob too much I know)

My quote ..... 290

Can I say wtf ??


Jeez, thats crap. I'm 40 so around the same age so I can't understand why yours is so high, post code maybe??

Thats a mental quote.

Have you got reduced mileage?

Who else have you tried?

I tried Brentacre. Recommend by pug306.net. They were 40 cheaper than anyone else on my standard car.

They are very reasonable up to 180bhp apparently but over this I cant comment.

You could try Footman James they are very good. I have heard that one part of them (either footman or james) has parted company with them and now offers super discounts as another firm, problem is I dont know which one or what company they have now formed!

Confused I rung Hic today to see what I would be looking at price wise on Janet, 37 no ncb (used on other car) Fully comp, full recovery, 170 excess, 75 windscreen cover, agreed value of 3000 (after photo proof) Does this sound ok for my mods?

Mods: 17" alloys, lowered 60mm, bucket seats, uprated brakes, 2ltr modded engine, GTE kit & s/s exhaust.

My quote>> 357.38

Thats a good quote. I got my van with HIC and my premium is about the same. Did they do it on a classic's policy for you? As they should.

Also you can reduce it by having limited mileage. I'd also say that when you sort out the agreed value go for at least 5000 as think about how much it would cost to replace and do the work again.

Its funny thing this insurance. i went onto compare etc and with TPFT, the best qoute was 634 (no breakdown cover etc).
The lady phoned me the next day and asked 'how was your quote'. i said, 'a joke at that price'.
She then said, 'its quite old and you can go classic', so i said, 'go on then what is the price'. she said, well you can't use your NB and windscreen is in and breakdown homestart etc. i said ok ok, how much, thinking about a grand, she said 86.10.
i thought i would go with the 86.10 one, including the 5% tax lol.
