Had my renewal through today, 586 for my 320D! Was 380 last year so I am not happy at all! Bearing in mind I am 28 with 9 years no claims, park on a drive and have no points I feel like going to Directline and kicking someones ass!!!

Anyone recommend anyone to try for insurance?

That sucks mate. :frown

Have a read of my insurance guide thread - http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum...e-comprehensive-info-on-car-insurance-t42091/

Other than that, shop around and get some quotes, Admiral have been the cheapest for me the last couple of years, the guide above should point you in the right direction too hopefully :thumbsup
It does suck, and my tax is up to £205 too! Getting expensive to have a car!!

Thanks ill have a look at your guide, someone else mentioned admiral so will have a look at that shortly.

my renewal this year was £300 up on last year, the cheapest i could get anywhere was still £100 more than last year, i'm 31 this year with 6 years no claims.

this insurance milarky is a joke, it does make you see why so many people don't have it but it's these people that put the price of us honest people.

Yeh it is a joke, but tbh driving in this country is getting more of a joke by the day with, fuel, tax and insurance prices forever increasing!!

Insurance tax premiums have gone up this year I did re-quote on mine with swift and ATM I'm paying 600 and now it's showing 1200 it's shocking just another way the government are clawing money back from the consumer

I always go straight to the price comparison websites when the renual comes in and hardly ever stay with the same company two years running. Insurers nearly always reduce prices to new customers so it pays to move.

I have no idea how that's possible, I'm 25, been driving for 4 years and have never made a claim, driving a car with same engine size (albeit an E46) yet I'm paying pretty much the same!

If that's the renewal through the post from Direct Line, then go online to Direct Line and get a quote there, save it then phone them, ask them to check that you've picked all the stuff you normally have on your policy, then ask them to match the price.
I do it every year and it's always cheaper.

3rd year with the same company is when they always take the p+ss you should shop around every 1 or 2 years..

example myself direct line took the piss in the 3rd year £441 then Esure did the same after 3 years with an autorenewal qoute of £485 went to Morethan last year same policy £299..

same car thruout owned since 2003..

exactly right dd, apparently by the 3rd year they think they have your loyalty and bump it up, frankly im amazed people dont tryt at least 2 comparison sites and as for these t*ssers that 'opt out' of those sites, the reason is there losing so much f88kin business:mad
