Insurance renewal time...

Who are you guys with these days?

For the last couple of years, Admiral seemed to have been the place to insure M3s - is that still the case?

They tried to ask for another 250 quid this year, now "negotiated" back to 125 more...cheeky sods....

Cheeky feckers!

Took my first insurance out a few weeks ago. Admiral came out cheapest for me.

make sure you add other qualified drivers - I added my wife to my 335 (although she will never drive it) and Direct Line reduced the premium by 60 - not a bad saving for a phone call

I added my lass, but she has only been driving for 1 yr 11 months so that put it up by 150! If I wait until later this month (so she's been driving for 2 years) it goes up by 3

I also added my dad on as a named driver - went down by 135!

Also changed job from director to IT manager (it said main job function, not title) - went down by 80!

Funny old game

Performance Direct quoted me over a 1000 more than last year! I was gob smacked.

A few calls later and they matched my previous year's premium. WTF?! Unbelievable!

Admiral for me too - they tried to put it up from 650 to 900 with my renewal in January, but a quick call and 'confirmation of details' it was back down to just under 700.

Admiral for me too!

LV were a little cheaper but insisted on a tracker on the car so all things considered Admiral were cheapest again!

Thanks chaps

Stayed with Admiral in the end - they initially tried to ask for 1250 vs last year's 983 but after lord knows how many times they put me on hold and came back shaving 10-20 off, we settled at 1056 which'll do I guess.

Also have a friend on the policy and that does make a difference.

Admiral here too. Tesco wanted £750. Admiral £350. Bizarrely went up to £400 when I added my daughters Polo on a dual car policy (even though she does not drive the M3 of course).

Put your mum on it and it will be cheaper than your Dad - That old Chestnut about women drivers being safer! Any older female with 15 years + driving license drops it another 50 +

Just renewed this morning with Liverpool Victoria, they were about 75.00 cheaper than the next nearest quote. They have UK call centres, which is a big plus for me.
