    Renewal Time Madness

    Not on insurance premiums! What about a basic mini?

    Renewal Time Madness

    Probably explained by the fact that the Citroen C1 is a learner and new driver car and therefore involved in more accidents. Consequently it's rated by insurance companies as a higher risk car. Solution? Your wife gets a Boxster! 😀
  4. This. Whatever you do on the financial side (and if knock for knock then he should pay for 50% of your repair rather than you just paying 50%) shouty aggressive behaviour is so inappropriate to use against a woman on her own. As your wife is badly shaken and they have her mobile phone number I'd want the matter logged with the police in case more threatening behaviour follows.
  5. With a protected no claims bonus the NCB will be protected. However your premium is likely to be raised (for all cars) before the NCB is applied. I have known people where there's been no discernable difference in financial outcome but others where there has been an increase (but not a "horror show"). I guess it depends on the insurance company.
  6. Remember it's the job that became redundant not you. Your talents and skills will find a job elsewhere. Good luck.

    Insured the car twice!!!

    Your phone records might show that you called Admiral if you were wanting to reassure yourself you're not loosing it!

    Stay logged into the forum

    Logging in on second device does log me out on the other. Thought that was normal until I read this thread. Wonder why it does that? Fortunately don't have the irritation of auto log out every 30mins!
  10. You could do worse than given the different forum sponsors a call.
  11. You'll need to pm @vroomba. The Facebook page appears to be an advert for Z-art Design rather than an enthusiasts FB page.

    A Plan Insurance

    They have a limited number of insurance companies they deal with. A-Plan provided a competitive quote but when I mentioned spacers the company would not insure. The quote with spacers (from another insurance company they deal with) was not competitive by some margin. Another of our sponsors helped me out.

    A Plan Insurance

    They discount for BoXa. net members and are generally very helpful. This year though they could not assist me as I had spacers (a modification!).
