Ok, just gave renault insurance £800 notes to insure me next year. Asked about lowering and it shot up to £980............WHAT da feck????????? So i said to the guy i think ill pass on the lowering, So, £800 to cover my 1.2 16v for the next year. there must be a way of getting them to accept a set of lowering springs for better than that??????? I have renewed, and will prob ring them up next month and say im getting lowering springs fitted...........what u think they will do/say? I have paid the whole £800 off in one payment, so............any ideas?

Renault insurance stuffed me over lowering. My premium went up £200 after it was lowered. Needless to say, after renewal I told them to stuff it and have just renewed with elephant, who only wanted a little extra for the fact it was lowered.

If you ring them up after renewal they will still want the full amount, just may be slightly less depending how many months are left on your policy. Dont expect it to be any cheaper!

i am doing me advanced driving test this year so hopefully that should help me out.

Does the advanced driving test lower the insurance by much cause the insurance in N. Ireland is a joke?

PLus it looks like im getting 3 points on my license now for speeding

it will reduce insurance by about 10% as an average, but not all insurance companies recongnise the test.


have u done the test then, me grandad is the chairman for the adi round here and he will train me well.

my dad use to be an instructor in the iam and he says most insurance companies dont give a toss about it.

as for the springs, i told renault and they just added 100 to my excess.

i dont know how u lot do it! I just rang an insurance company in the back of a P-GTI mag, the guy couldnt quote me this evening, but says due to my 1yrs NCB and my age (20), he thinks they will be able to help me out..........and they dont charge for mods like lowering!!! HA, Renault might not have my money yet..........greedy barstewards

Pass plus hard?

Thats a joke int it. You can do it with your driving instructor and theirs no test. Easy as pie. you just have to be confident on the motorway
