    Kathy tells me that the limit is 40k. My standard spec for a 335d Touring starts at around 42k. I was onto a loser before i rang Perhaps this should have been mentioned prior to me going through all the options on my car. I did give Kathy the value figure of my car before anything was mentioned about options fitted to it. She was very polite and helpful though.

    We could have probably got it accepted on referral with a £42k value but £54k was too much of stretch after options. Hope you enjoy the car and sorry again that we couldn't help you at this stage.

    I called today asking for a quote but the girl on the phone who tried to assist me asked me if prior to owning this car I had driven a rear wheel drive vehicle before to which I said yes as my wife has a 318d. She then mentioned that as I haven't owned my own 530i for over a year that my quotes wouldn't be worth it and said that I should try again next year.

    Can this be correct when I am getting quotes from other insurers?

    Some facts:

    - I am over 30 but had an insurance claim last year on my previous vehicle. I have 10 year NCB and been driving for over 10 years.

    Another question for the Chris Knott folks....
    Are you different to other insurers when it comes to renewals? I find I have to change insurer every year because there appears to be no such thing as loyalty in the insurance business and the competition are always cheaper come renewal time.

    Hi, I'm afraid the insurers require members to have at least a year's experience of the performance (including RWD for such cars). So though you met the RWD experience the power is somewhat different between a 1.8 deisel and a 3.0 petrol. Sorry about that - yes we'll definitely be in the running next year when you have the 12 months' experience. Good luck with your quote search.

    best,
    Nick

    Hi, we try to keep prices consistent so there are no automatic hikes at renewal - we prefer to keep customers long-term so we're not into selling it cheap to get you in and then losing you again at renewal - our customer retention rate at renewal is about 80%.

    Hope that gives you some peace of mind.

    best,
    Nick
