Had a look through the forums but not found an answer, hoping someone with experience of insuring astras may be able to help,
Anyway I get my car tomorrow, its a brand new Astra Sport Sxi 1.7 cdti.. I went for a few extras because I get discounts from working for GM a partner company.
The car has:
the VXR styling pack one,
Driver control pack,
CDC 40 multichanger
Ultra sonic alarm
Now my problem is, what do I class as modifications above the standard astra sxi model when getting an insurance quote.. All options were fitted at the factory.
I've rang round a few insurance companies and some have told me that because of so many mods it can't be insured...though they would insure me on a VXR!! or an SRi... I've tried to explain that the styling kit just makes it look like the Sri with the exterior pack....tried also to explain that an Sxi with styling pack is not even as powerful as the Sri 1.8, 1.9 2.0 turbo that they would insure me with.
Question is..do i have to declare the extras to the car as mods or are they standard because they were fitted at the factory..If I I just declared the body kit I can get a quote for £368 from Zurich with no claim protected and £150 excess... but if i mention the cd changer and other options it becomes uninsurable...
