    Interesting how they can both be different isn't it. For the Leon it worked out slightly more with Chris Knotts than flux - it was only something like £42 iirc, we stayed with Flux purely because the golf was insured with them previously.

    Some of the quotes we got else where were massive though and again off companies that people use for modified cars, there doesn't seem to be any logic to them other than ring around and get the best deal for you, your car and your house at that particular time.

    Just a bit of pain having to do it each year!

    Insurance companies seem to have no ryhme nor reson behind their quotes. I called Flux last year to renew the ST200;s insurance, was subsequently quoted £840 (only £500 more than it was at the time), because [insert condesending tone]"a 2.5 v6 is a big engine for someone at 28"[insert condesending tone]

    Fluxy were £150 cheaper for me - my problem was there's only one insurer that does modded cars in N. Ireland (Highway).

    of all people, Churchill quoted me the cheapest by a long shot this year, they were £300 cheaper than Flux/Chris Knott/Bell/Tesco and all the other usual suspects I try each year.. TBH I've never actually taken insurance out with any of the so-called "modified car specialists" as they've always worked out more than one of the other companies... Its like playing the lottery I think, you just keep trying different numbers until something good comes up

    Chris Knott and Churchill were cheaper for my GSi than Flux too, but the woman on the phone at Flux was straight up enough to say they couldnt beat what i'd had already and didn't waste my time trying to tell my why i should pay more with them so for that reason alone i'll probably ring 'em again come renewal time.

    Insurance is a swizz. Churchill, Privilege, Tesco and many more are all owned by the Royal Bank of Scotland. Stifles competition I reckon
    It is only when the last tree is felled, the last animal killed and the last fish hauled from the sea that we will realise we can't eat money.
