Went onto the compare insurance website and signed up with AI Insurance for half that, with choice of repairer, same excess and for less than 1k.

If GIO hadn't tried to gouge me I wouldn't have gotten pissed off and left.

Stupid buggers.
You've just come out of the 3-year replacement period of the policy and they quoting the market value for the car. Look at other insurers like Allianz, who offer the best insurance for European cars given their market background. They are also cheaper than most others on the market. Also you can take to your preferred BMW repairers, who like working with Allianz. Do not touch AAMI ... a lot of bad customer experience.

By-the-way, I don't work for Allianz.
