    Lightbulb Irmscher backbox...

    Ok im lookin at modding my car, but due to my age my insurance wil go threw the roof.. not that it already is...

    are irmscher parts classed as vauxhall parts? if thats the case then my insurance shouldnt go up by having a irmscher backbox?

    also if i did purchase one of these V.Expensive backboxes, is there anyway to make them purr louder? cus the ive never heard of one turning heads...

    Irmscher back boxes are classed as standard parts, just say ti was on when you bought it ,

    But the downside is they dont make any noise, if thats what your after

    Anything you change on the car over the standard factory spec must be declared to the insurer, whether or not they charge you and how much is another matter.

    the remus pipe just tends to add a deeper rumber at idle, tbh u would really notice it if u walked past,
    but if u went from it completly std like i did to fitting the pipe and hearing it you will notice a much nicer noise, sounds deeper and more sporty but not a real deep tone, hard to explain,

    yea i know that, but what im saying is, when i had my fezzi, i put ford alloys on and the insuance never changed, they said if its a ford manufactured part then its not a problem, if i had purchased the car with a irmsher backbox on, if i didnt come on here and didnt know any better it would look standard to me so how would i know to declare it ?

    Norwich Union wanted to charge me 10% of my insurance premium for one even though it's a standard VX part and they knew this.
