  1. Or could this "package of remedies" mean that "new customer" prices will go up?
  2. @Sazzy - just to let you know that this guide was a massive help for a friend who was working through hood alignment problems. They’re fixed now Thank you.
  3. So in this case there’s no parity for UK citizens compared to their Irish equivalents. Fascinating - I wonder if there’s a “human rights violation” here on the basis that over the same grounds one group is being treated differently to another. Do you want to be that test case? I wouldn’t but it is interesting given how everyone has rights.....
  4. I’m the same position as above however I was under the impression that there was a pre-existing “treaty” between the UK and Ireland that covered driving licenses and other day to day inter country document portability - was also under the impression that this remained in place regardless of the EU/UK agreement. If that’s changed then I can see it affecting more Irish than UK nationals simply on the balance of flow of people between the countries.
  5. Solid logic however it doesn’t fit every need - Agreed Value typically restricts mileage - fine if it’s a High Days car that’s garaged (usually another AV condition) but for anything like daily use the highest limit I found was 7500 miles which in a normal year isn’t enough for my 986.
  6. Just a thought - might it be driven by a change of circumstances? I know my insurance premium reduced when I moved into my own home from renting and again when I added the now mrs_map as a named driver. That said the total saving wasn’t anything like a 50% reduction. The other thing I found with car insurance premiums is that a proper conversation with a decent broker is almost always preferable to an on-line form. This may be because my cars are heavily tweaked but it also worked for a friend of ours who hadn’t built up a UK driving record as a consequence of living overseas for 15 years. She got horrible premiums on line and went to APlan Thatcham on my recommendation and it was all fine.
  7. Surprised to see this - might be worth another word and ask them to go to their underwriters for a specific review/decision. You may need to push a bit They did this for me to get my bizarre cover requirements in place and that direct approach on my behalf worked well.
  8. Have used them consistently for the last few years - I insure a couple of heavily modified P cars with them and they always manage to find proper cover for sensible money given the context of the modifications/on street parking/full work use including customers in the car (not a Taxi) and higher than average mileages. Not had to claim yet but they’ve been very responsive on thevodd occasion where I’ve not been 100% about something.
  9. As much as it grieves me to write this - whatever's right isn't necessarily what's expedient for you. If these guys are as aggressive as it sounds then it may just be worth paying for the mirror - in this situation I would not want someone in my family being exposed to the possibility of further intimidating behaviour especially as they now have a mobile number. By all means have a go at reasoning with the guy - he may have calmed down a bit this morning - and if you can reach a sensible solution great. On the other hand if he won't then just revert to the insurers and if he gets too punchy then it might be worth a quick visit to your local police station - in my experience they take a pretty dim view on this sort of threatening behaviour. A quick call from them might just calm things down enough to sort it out.
  10. Have to say I am pleased with the service and policies I have with A Plan - both cars are heavily modified (engines, brakes, suspension and drive trains in each case) with both are covered for proper business use and daily driver mileages although the SC hasn't been used nearly enough in 2016. Have to say A Plan Thatcham seem to be one of the few who don't "sigh" we we start running through the mods. The SC was a bit of a challenge this year but the guys at AP Thatcham sorted it out for me and at a net lower price than the previous year.
  11. Hi Matthew, thought I would say hi. I was searching the site for a friend of mine with a boxster.

    Life has been busy with me, moving house, moving job about a year ago. Still in fulham though. I hope all is well with you.
