People of AOC, I need some assistance with car insurance stuff please.
My sister had recently passed her driving test and the rents have bought her a S plate Auto SEAT Arosa. I did not go with them to look at the car as I was working at the time. I looked at the pics in the advert and noticed the alloys and they were five spokes. I thought this was strange, as they did not look standard to me and due to the crappy angles and quality of the pics I was unable to see the badge on the hub. So, I asked me dad to query this with the dealer and they confirmed that they were SEAT standard alloys. Anyways, they took delivery of the car yesterday so I had another good look at the wheels and I know they are not standard, as they have the logo 'smiths' on the centre hub. All standard SEAT alloys have the same S badge on them I believe? Besides, the model my sister has (if it is the model the dealer said it was) should only come with wheel trims anyway according to the net.
My query is that due to the dealer telling me old man that the wheels are standard, me old man believed him and had not declared this with the insurance company. I am worried that should anything happen, the insurance company can use this against us. I asked a mate at work about this to see what his thought was and he said I was talking bollocks and should not worry about the wheels being on there and dont bother telling the insurance company.
Is he right or me??
