    XP kit sporthatch question

    You know when you go on confused.com etc and you put in what car you want to insure it says (for mine anyway):

    Astra Sporthatch 1.6 SRI Turbo

    OR

    Astra Sporthatch 1.6 SRI Turbo XP

    Mine has the XP and the 18'' penta wheels but they were fit by the Vauxhall dealer when I bought the car so my reg comes up being a non XP car even though it now is... I told my insurance this year and nothing changed so Im not bothered about that but in the future do I need to change it somehow, especially if I insure my car by the internet and dont talk to anyone which Im panning on doing as its much cheaper this renewal? Its still standard I suppose...?

    It's declared on my policy as a factory fitted bodykit.

    If it has been fitted after being built then it is considered a modification and would need to be declared.

    Ring them up and make sure they are aware of it - It didn't cost any more for the kit on my policy. I also made them aware of other factory options that are on my car. Not worth taking any chances!

    Yeah this year they do know about it, and think it was put down as a 'factory fitted bodykit' like above but just thinking on the grounds you could buy this car off me and it would appear totally standard... Ill ring when my renewal comes and make sure its ok before i pay!
