A little in advance with this query but..

I bought my car in November 2008. I took out a 10 month policy with admiral. That means in September when Im up for renewal, I'll only have 10 months ownership experience of a performance car. I take it you won't be budging on the year's experience?

Hi Tim,

I have a query regarding the performance car... is it purely based on bhp? or 0-60 times?

I am currently with you (Chris knott) but through the VW audi forum.

Whilst my car is not really a performance car as standard, it has been modified with a bhp output approaching 200bhp, its had uprated suspension, larger alloys etc.

I called the other day, as I am looking to buy a Z4 2.5L, however I was told that I did not have enough experience :( my arguement is that my current car is not far off in a straight line, perhaps slightly quicker mid range... I have also done alot of high speed driving etc as I used to work for Nissan research and Development, so trips to MIRA test track were common.

Unfortunately If I cannot get insurance with you I will have to leave, which is a shame as so far the experience has been good!

Regards

Speed12

Well, 4th March was my renewal... Chris Knott beat the nearest competitors (Swiftcover), like for like (including 3rd party on other vehicles) by over £50

I was expecting a price match, but £50 is well worth having. Like all insurance companies it's not one cap fits all, but well worth a call! :thumbsup:

A GOOD REASON TO PHONE US IF YOUR RENEWAL IS DUE IN MARCH!

March is generally one of the busiest months of the year for car insurance.

There are a few reasons for this -

Firstly, the new car registrations come out so plenty of new cars to insure.

Secondly, this means that people who buy new cars, sell their existing ones which are then bought & insurance is needed for them.

Thirdly, a major insurance company went bust in the early 1970's in March which left a lot of people without insurance meaning they had to get new policies immediately. There were long queues outside brokers with people waiting to get covered! This means that many of the affected, older generation still have March renewal dates!

And on a totally personal level, we have just had our record week since we instigated these forum insurance schemes so we must be doing something right!

Therefore, if your renewal is due in March, please feel free to give us a call and don't forget to mention the club scheme reference number found in my signature below or in my initial post which started this thread.

0800 917 2274 or 01580 752961 if calling by mobile.

A new stipulation on the Insurance Scheme is that you must also have at least 1 year's NCB (unless you have NCB on a second car or a company car letter to state at least 1 year's claim free driving).

Just a quick note to thank those of you who have tried the club insurance scheme.

In March, we have recorded our best ever week for club 'business' - nearly double that of our previous record set in February, which was remarkable in itself! I had to recheck the figures myself!

This is all due to the fact that people on sites like this have rung us & taken out policies. We must be doing something right!

Just to let you know our opening hours are Monday to Friday, 9am till 5pm & Saturday morning, 9am till noon.

(Please don't forget to quote the club scheme reference number when you ring for a quote).
