    You need to declare all that you do to your car as it is considered a modification.

    No it doesn't.

    Not all changes are modifications - otherwise we would all be calling our inusrers when we change the wheel trims.

    I would think that any modification which changes the performance of the car is notifiable to the insurers.
    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.

    Any modifications which change the look of the car also need to be declared as the car will be deemed "more desirable" to thieves and so could potentially be more of a target to thieves. With insurance companies its a case of better safe than sorry and for the price of a phone call its always better to check first before carrying out the mod.

    I appreciate it can be annoying having to call your Insurance Company all the time. We accept email's/faxes from our clients if they don't have the chance to call us during the day. I guess other Insurance companies would accept an email too.

    Sadly insurance companies will try their best to wriggle out of paying a claim - so best to tell all - I'm not making this up - I was told this by a colleague who worked in the insurance industry for a number of years.
