Well the renewal from admiral came in the post today £3,212 including Mrs H's car - 1,571 for the m3...called them up and got through to a very nice lady in their canadian call centre. After a few clicks and some pleasant conversation, and a few tweaks the renewal came in at £907. Thought I'd just refresh the usual comparision websites and no joy. So called them back to accept the quote except instead of £907 it came in at £776 including mods and £600 excess.
Thank you Admiral - you just made my day.
