    Hello everyone,

    I just wanted to share my findings today with modifications and insurance. I was previously with Churchill and they quoted me a price for my standard 330ci vert. However I wanted to get an exhaust done and wanted to declare it for piece of mind; Churchill wanted a £900 premium!

    Went with elephant.co.uk today and they can give me the same price for what I paid for a standard car with churchill fully comp, but with an exhaust and performance air filter fully declared.

    I thought this might help some of you previously thought that modifications would put the premium through the roof.

    PS. I also tried Adrian flux as I heard these were good with mods, however this also put my insurance sky high. Let the mods begin!

    Regards
    Ryan

    I'm with Elephant and they only charged me £33.46 on my premium for the suspension drop +£17.70 admin as my policy has already started.

    They also said that I can add and induction kit and exhaust for free (premium wise), I just have to pay the admin fee
