    People with tuned cars

    Do you declare them on insurance?

    I'm imagining that declaring a 3.5 stage courtenay mite be a ballache

    Opinions?

    IF you dont then your insurance would be void, all kind of complications then.

    Not worth the risk, and if your running that kind of power then it should be insured properly.

    I don't declare any mods so the insurance company can refuse to pay out if I crash or the car is stolen. Not.

    Depends on how bad the accident is or whats involved in the accident, if they wanted to dig deep enough then yes they will find it. 2minutes with Tech2 would reveal a remap.

    And yes I have everything declared on all my cars.

    Everything has been declared on my car, just not worth it if something happens.
