Insurance when running a cage

  ph1 track weapon
Hey all,

a question for those who run a cage on an everyday basis.

who are you insured by? and do they make a massive difference to your premium?

hope this isnt a regularly asked question :(

They dont mind, when i got a quote on a 172, they said i can do anything visually/handling wise and engine mods up to 180bhp for the price they quoted, no fee's as and when they are done either.
some insurers make a big fuss about having a roll cage....mainly because they thinking:

1. wondering why you want a roll cage
2. you are obviously a rally/motorsport fan and will therefore try and pretend you too are a rally driver, and like all rally drivers, will end up in a hedge before too long!
3. roll cages look cool - and this will no doubt excite other younger drivers to try and race you...and you, being an owner of a roll cage will oblige...

Sounds totally stuipid and unfair I know - but they look into pretty much every combination of a drivers intent and match that to past history of number of claims of drivers who run a cage...etc
I'm with brentacre and as above, any mods i want in terms of visual, braking and suspension, and can add induction kits and exhausts with no change in premium either.

brentacre came back with a good quote this morning, so i'm gonna run the car standard through til january when my renewal is due, then go with them.
