Adrian Flux Price Joke

23 July 2015 - 07:32 PM



I did a few comparison quotes and AF came out top each time and I remembered that they offered a 15% discount so duly rang them up. Spoke to  Melissa's who passed me onto Toby who then went through all the questions and an hour into the call came back with a quote that was 15% HIGHER than the online quotes!!!


I queried this with Toby and all he could say was:


the online system does not ask the same questions - bullpoo as it did

I have carried out 20 odd quotes and it takes the highest mileage I've input - bullpoo, I had decreased from 8500miles to 6000miles

I said there could be a remap to increase the mpg but figures would go from 115bhp to 120bhp - he said he'll put in upto 20% taking it to 135bhp as that didn't matter - bullpoo - it must have made a difference


so, after wasting my breath and feeling that AF are misquoting me and mis-selling the policy I decided to stick with my current insurer who said they are willing to take on any bhp increase, all my mods and lowering my suspension unto 50mm and even brought the price down from £328 to £264!!!


Dan@AdrianFlux - shame fella, I really thought you guys could have done me a good deal but I wasted over an hour talking to 3 reps.

Modified Rsparts Splitter

16 July 2015 - 11:13 AM

some of you who have the splitter would have noticed that when the car is washed or if it has rained that the water sits on the splitter. This got me thinking...what if it had an angle/slope on it?


So, i purchased another splitter and made this




and then finally got round to fitting it and now it looks like this






next on the agenda is the custom number plate - i have had the vinyl made and it has been delivered and yesterday i picked up some blank number plates - i originally intended to place the vinyl on the back of my number plates but it has double sided tape so blanks were the better and easier option.


it will have a variation of this

Focus Splitter - Modified

23 June 2015 - 12:52 PM

i purchased an RS Parts splitter and didnt like the way it held water on the lip if it rained or was washed. I then purchased another one (got it cheap) and decided to modify it...The Escort Cossie being my choice of inspiration....

After - lip is at an angle from front to the rear




so, what do you think?


I even thought of adding some lettering and was going to put the new Focus badge on (in black) but then decided against it.
