    Car Upgrades & Insurance ??

    Lots of you owners out there have done some fantastic modifications and upgrades to your cars. I'm thinking about getting a VXR and letting the VXR Performance Centre do some upgrades - engine, suspension etc, but I'm wondering how it will affect my car insurance? Will my premium shoot up 'cos my car is not standard?
    Any advice/experiences much appreciated.
    Thanks.
    Justin.

    Yes it will be more than a standard policy...best to try and get some quotes before you go ahead though.

    Oh, and not all Insurance companies allow modifications

    My insurance has gone up £140 for the work carried out on my GSI. Had pre cat pipe fitted, cat back exhaust system, fmic and Stage 2 software.
