    Mods & Insurance

    Thinking of keeping my astra now, so i was wondering what kind of effect on my insurance a Phase 1 kit from Regal Autosports will have.

    I'm 25 with 7 years NCB currently paying about £800...

    plus

    Regal say Phase 1 will take my car to 234bhp and 274ftlb torque, how realistic are these figures?

    Quite - but it depends on how standard your car is - if you lots of mods (exhaust etc) there are other options

    So 187 to 234 would be a 25% increase?

    AND

    a £200 increase on my insurance?

    (if they used the same percentage obviously)
