    They've phoned me three times today. Insurance isn't due till beginning of next month and they'll probbably not get my money anyway, they can never touch my quotes, even with the "discount":rolleyes: applied.

    For a full listing of ALL mods they have been the best for a few Years. Will wait to see how they are next year.

    It does seem people are being contacted earlier for insurances and stuff. I had a text message from the RAC to state they had renewed my membership. It seem they sent me a letter 6 weeks ago to confirm this. A little call later and I had increased the length of cover to 15 Months for the same money.

    Deffo better than Lancaster that when I said it had a 300Tdi , insisted it must be a 3 ltr engine and having a winch must mean I am a recovery driver....LOL.

    Cheers

    Both under insured if you tried to replace them today.

    Cheers

    AF have been crap for years.

    Many moons ago, I insured my Monaro with them (5.7 v8, ls1). I was in my mid 20's and it was just under 1k.

    Asked them to quote me for my new l322 4.4 tdv8 - over £1k with 8 years no claims (and a total of 14 on other cars).

    How did that compare with other insurer? AF on my L322 TDV8 4,4 are not good, But I use them on the 90 as it is specialised. I consider the RR to be a mainstream std motor.

    BTW , I do not htink you can take other vehicle NCB into account.

    Cheers

    AF didn’t know what an OF was either so it don't really matter:D. At least A Plan understood what car I had:).

    Ring around play them against each other;):D.

    They asked about the other vehicles; I guess it's about how good a driver you are or the risk.

    Anyway, I got it insured with Admiral.. For less than 1/3rd of what AF wanted.

    Should point out that saying I was part of this forum (and another's!) made zero difference.

    Scotlandshire, the pretty bit
    I had that recently when I had an email saying my RAC cover was about to auto renew with ONLY a £40 increase on last year, despite me saying I would not accept auto renew every time I take anything out.
    I kept saying no and they eventually gave me additional cover free, a decrease from the previous year of about £40 and 15 months cover instead of 12.
    I always find it pays, when you have the cash to do so, to shop around and be "difficult" when looking at insurance and stuff.
    I found out the hard way years ago that auto renewals screw you over in the long term and it is well worth shopping around.
