I thought I would share my renewal quote and then shop around to improve. Any recommendations welcome. Anyone who wants to post their quotes on here too might make it a useful reference thread.

10,000 Value
10,000 miles a year
Fully Comp
90 Windscreen Replacement Excess
150 Accidental Damage, MaliciousDamage, Fire And Theft Excess

When it come to insurance quote, Adrian Flux are about as crooked as you can get.
Went to get a quote from them for the Z3 kit and they said they would mirror my 9+ years NCB across, limited mileage of 3k and a value of 7.5 as it wasn't finished. 400 FFS!
I asked why this was double the cost of my Merc SL which is faster, and worth a great deal more than the Z3. 2 minutes late the premium had dropped to 185.

There are quite a few companies now that will mirror your NCB but you have to firmly ask your broker, they won't offer unless you ask.

Insurance brokers make Estate Agents seem honest.

I always ask for a better price , no matter who I'm with. 9 times out of 10 you will be offered a better deal. That's as a new customer or at renewal time.
I've used Flux and A plan in the past , the policies have been ok and a reasonable price.

Chis recommended I tried A Plan this is my second year with them,
10 years + no claims
Retired
Post code BL1
3000 miles
protected no claims bonus
Agreed Value of 22,000, their suggestion so it may change when they see the photos of the finished car (90% there, was 14,000 last year whilst completing the build)
Legal expense cover
207.99
Very helpful.
Hope to see some of these great cars you guys are putting together at Stoneleigh, so there should be more then last year.

I'm waiting on A plan to get back to me in the morning with a price for my 2.2 Z3. Its a standard car at the moment but I want to enjoy it through the summer until the 275 convertible kit becomes available.
I've asked for 5000 miles, fully comp. I have my A6 insured through them and they say they can mirror my max no claims across. So I hope they can give me a good price.
Swinton quoted me 490 but they wouldn't or couldn't mirror my no claims. I left them two years ago because they were too expensive on my daily driver.

A-plan came back with 240 which isn't too bad as I've put the wife on as a named driver and she had a recent claim. I don't think I'll do any better. I can always cancel after 5 or 6 months and get a refund.

I went with A Plan.

Claire was really nice to deal with and helpful. Pointed out that I needed business cat 1 on top of what I had. She was correct even though previous insurers had missed that.

I went back to Adrian Flux and miraculously their quote was 76p cheaper.

I went with a plan for their service. Say hi to Clair's on the a plan stand atcstonliegh , she camps there every year

Footman James 130 fully comp.
Kobra value 10K, 3k miles, age 48, 2800cc
They don't seem to recognise Tribute as a manufacturer though.
So they have it recorded as an AC Cobra Replica (Tribute)
