    what mods need declaring

    hi all

    i have a 2003 bertone coupe with standard alloys on it at the moment. if i was to put some 17" gsi snowflakes on my car would i need to declare these or not. only unsure as they are still vauxhall alloys at the end of the day i realise any aftermarket ones you would need to.

    thanks for the help

    Pretty sure ill be corrected but im certain ANYTHING thats not the cars original spec has to be declared.

    I declared everything on the VXR right down to the sight & light pack just to play safe

    Yes.

    Anything that is not standard spec for the model variant needs to be declared
    Actively proving that post counts mean jack sh*t since 1971

    define the term "mod"?

    mod = modification = therefore modifying the vehicle from its standard spec


    if your theory was correct then surely i didnt have to declare my turbo engine that i fitted cos it was from a Vauxhall???

    Sorry bud - but every single mod "should" be declared

    thats how it works sadly

    Wheels will probably be ok if replaced with same size and similar stye. I had to change mine because they were buckled and privelidge didn't charge me anything. Nor when I swapped my z20let engine for a z20lel. With a lot (not all) of insurance companies, if it's nearly like for like then they will allow you a couple of mods at no extra charge.
    You do want to declare them just so that they are covered too (this will differ from one policy to the next)
