So had my insurance renewal from Reiss in - £530 which is down from £580 last year. 

 

Rang around and Lowest so far is Keith Michaels at £428 which is pretty good tbh.

 

Tried:  Adrain Flux

           Skyinsurance

           Performance direct

 

Need someone that will accept the mods so Chris Knott is out, any other suggestions?

That's a good quote - What mods do you have?

Just tried to do an online quote with these but need to ring them due "to nature of vehicle" I assume the mods. So will see what they come back with.

 

 

Adrian Flux are crafty "bas%%rds.  So they quoted me £454 on Monday. I asked how long the quote was valid for, to which they replied "only to the end of the call" As it was a fair bit cheaper than the nearest quote at that time I decided to pay up to secure it on the premise that I could have a full refund if I cancelled prior to start date.

 

Following some suggestions on here, I managed to get lower, £424 and £410.

 

All set to go with A-Plan I rang up AF yesterday to cancel and they dropped their quote to £400 by way of a £54 refund.

 

A-Plan rang today to follow up their quote (valid for 30 days) and I happened to mention my wife's car insurance is also up for renewal.  They said that the proposed VX underwriter also offers good rates on additional cars. They managed to cut the best price on her car by £30 and match AF's £400.  I never even considered using a broker for mainstream cars as historically id always got the best quotes on standard cars from the big companies.

 

The guy at A-plan was a little bemused and said AF's behaviour was a little suspect and the FSA probably wouldn't be too happy.

 

Anyway I rang AF a second time to cancel and they are now going to quote for the wife's aswell.

 

It pays to shop around I guess.

I have been an Adrian flux customer for more than 35 years I think my first policy wasa1980, but they have gone downhill in my opinion. I too was given a quote which they said was only valid at the time of the call as it was a broker deal and that they could not offer me an email of the quote either. I find both of these issues likely to be a sales pressure techniqe which I ignored.
I did go ahead a few days later with their offer which miraculously was still available.
However I put a slightly different description of my job title and their automated systems then tried to take £40 to update by other car policy job title on a policy which only had a few weeks to run and then threatened to cancel that policy when the automated payment went through. They have then taken another £60 for additional modifications that I did not declare on the quote but since they did not send me a detailed listing of modifications it is difficult to challenge. I did declare uprated engine mounts which I was not aware of at the time and non OEM brakes but neither of them make any material difference to the performance compared with stage 2 turbo etc. They also did not provide any detail in their correspondence of why they were charging the extra.
Had to waste another 45 minutes of my life trying to establish what was what.

Just my experience, but I am now very disappointed in the way this has been handled. Will be trying some of these other suggested companies/brokers next time.

Settled on A-plan in the end, AF couldnt get anywhere near the wifes cars quote from A-Plan after all that. Overall quite a big saving over both cars.
Henderson taylor were also quite close on the solely the Vx.
