  1. No he didn't know - but he does now 😈 🤣
  2. 🤣 Mr 997 is indeed retired.... but is only 52 .... having never been married and not having any children was a contributing factor to early retirement ....along with a massive heart attack at 35...which meant a rethink of his future work / life balance - therefore saving as much as possible for the next 13 years until retirement at 48. He did in fact woo me with talk of flat 6’s as we met at a PCGB meet - although I will always remember the first words I uttered when I met him .... “Do you know where my drain holes are ? “ 🤭🤣
  3. Same here with Barclays £10 a month travel pack for RAC complete breakdown and onward recovery and travel insurance .
  4. Really interesting - glad mine has heated seats - when looking for my car many on here said heated seats were a must - having used them for the first time on Sunday I can confirm that they were right - driving back from a PCGB meet in the frosty Cotswolds with the roof down my teeth were actually chattering,but at least my bum was nice and toasty 😂
  5. Might be worth giving A plan a go - but you need to speak to the specialist office - mirrored the NCD on my Fiesta - so pay £300 a year on the Box and £330 on a 17 plate fiesta - paid an extra £42 for total loss cover on the box meaning if it was written off i would get an extra 25 % payout ( was way cheaper than gap insurance ) - that’s with cars being on driveway and 1 accident ( 4 k of damage taking out the back light of a merc - no damage to my car and only back light on his - a lease car that was going back - so you can see why the cost was stupid )
  6. I insured the Box and my Fiesta with A plan as they mirrored my NCD ,were happy with mods and for an extra £42 a year gave me total loss cover , meaning that in the event of the car being written off they would give me open market value instead of book value ,plus an extra 25 % on top , so at 12 k should give me an additional 3 k on top - that was the best way round it that I could see for the value of my car.
  7. Was looking at getting some Gap insurance myself, but all quotes were way higher than I expected / what my neighbour had been paying for his. If you find someone who will do it for a decent price please let me know😁
  8. Sad to read this - used to insure my Stags TR7 and Frog eye sprite with them years ago - as a 20 year old only used to cost me £100 a year fully comp (on limited mileage ) they were always brilliant and it would have cost me a fortune elsewhere - just goes to show how things can change.
  9. Try A-Plan on here - I have protected no claims and took out the back light of a Merc in a car park last year when I was with E-sure (had 5 mins previously taken a phone call saying house sale had fallen through 24 hrs before due to exchange ) and just didn't see the car in my wing mirror blind spot - Merc claimed over £4000 in damage (the owners wife told me he was going to change it in anyway , so must have been on contract and claimed for everything as it was only the rear light - no paint damage ) ! I have a 2017 Fiesta as my daily and 2007 SE for fun - A-plan mirror my NCD and I pay £300 a year on the Box fully comp with 5000 miles and £320 a year on the Fiesta with 7000 miles.I also paid an extra £42 a year for total loss cover on the Box as they don't do agreed value,but do do open market value rather than book value and then then the total market loss pays out an additional 25% of the cars open market value if it is written off.
  10. If you get a second car A plan mirror your no claims discount - cost me £300 to insure the Box and £325 to insure the 2017 plate Fiesta
  11. My insurance went up when I got divorced on car and home & contents as well.
  12. Try giving A Plan a ring - look on the Insurance thread - just insured my Fiesta and my 987 SE with them - Fiesta came in at over £500 on the Meerkat as had a little ding last year but had protected no claims and didn't claim on mine and the Box came in at £230 before extras with A Plan and the Fiesta at £270 as they mirrored my NCD. Don't listen to the others, you are a lucky man - Cougars are a gift 😉Perhaps don't tell her you told the forum her age🙄
  13. Mirror my NCD and came in at £300 on the boxster with 5000 miles and including all the add ons and £270 on the Fiesta doing 8000 miles - very good considering Box and Fiesta not garaged and had a car park bump last year where I only took out the back light on a Merc - no damage to mine - £4425 !!
  14. That's good to know - as will hopefully be looking for a company to mirror my NCD when I find my car - seem to remember they were the cheapest insurance for my first car - a lovely and very black manta with blacked out back lights - used to get stopped by Mr Plod quite regularly because they thought the lights were illegal - always had to let me go because they weren't
