I called up Adrian Flux today (waiting for DAN's ears to peak up ) and asked them about fitting an economy tuning box to the car, with a maximum of 20% power, as an absolute maximum). After the young lady goes away and talks to a few people, my insurance would go up by £108 for the year, and my excess would double :| wtf?
Others here have gone to AF and told them they have added a tuning box, and its just been a note on the policy, no cost increase, but for me, I am taking a 20+% increase in premium and a 100% increase in excess =|
Its main purpose is not to boost power, but to cut fuel use! and yet I feel I would be paying a lot more than otherwise its worth it :| the box would cost me £185, and yet my insurance bumps would cost more than the mod :|
Would you mind sending me a PM with your policy details and I'll take a look.
Sorry to jump on to this thread as I have some questions regarding insurance. I was planning to put a wind deflectors on my car. Does this consider a mods ? Hoping dan@Adrianflux can answer coz I'm insured with them.
You would need to notify us of this, any change you make to the vehicle is worth notifying your insurer of - you would not like to come to claim and have it invalidated due to non-disclosing the modifications.
By all means send me a PM with your policy details and we can check this out for you.
