@Jay71, i think you should spend much more time shopping around if you havent already bought, some people have recommended Aplan insurance (even on other forums) and when i renewed in september last year including adding mods, adrian flux actually came up cheaper than the previous year, and they were the ONLY ones i could find cheaper

Mine went up from £600 to £800 with Brentacre this year I'm 25 with 8yrs no claims, but they were the cheapest and are like for like on mods with vgood customer service. Insurance has gone up by upto 40% since lastyear because of all the claims made last time it snowed, well thats the excuse I got from most of the companies I spoke to.

whats the point of no claims if , they charge You extra for the people who have claimed
unfortunately mate thats how it works. All these little twunts they drive around un insured, those that dont declare there mods and crash into joe public push our premiums up. that as well as admin charges push them up.

Once again, the honest motorist getting raped.

Well said....

I have been trying to push this point for a long time, but no-body seems to care..... 'Im alright jack if my 200BHP car is insured as a 90BHP TDI with no mods. its cheaper to insure, who cares if I hit someone else and am not covered, or the cost on others insurance as a result'

I can beat all of you.
5 yrs ago I had a scirocco gt2 @?350 comp. At age 26
Last year I treated myself to a BMW 7 series v8. The e38 model for those that are interested @?780 comp.
Sadly the cheapest renewal price once I'd scoured the globe trying all possible insurers and comparison sites was almost ?1800 and I'm nearly 32, with 5 yrs no claims.
That, and the petrol prices meant I had to get a car which is cheaper to run.
Hence my move to a 90 HP diesel golf.

The rumour is that uninsured drivers have put the cost of insurance up, but we all know that's absolute dangly bits.
It's just the insurance companies deciding to double our premiums to double their profits.
They've done nothing but make money out of me, my missus and our parents. As we've never ever claimed.
Surely we're not the only family who are in the same situation?!
I'd love to know who polices the insurers.
