Got a quote from AAMI tonight for comprehensively insuring the EL with them.
I told them about the 17" wheels, the full exhaust system, and the lowering.
Here is what they told me.
The will upgrade me from rating 5 to rating 1 for life, They are fine with the mods aslong as there's no more because Im at the limit.
They will Insure the car for $12,900 or market value, whichever is higher.
All for the princley sum of......$369.00
I'm wrapped, at the moment I'm paying $855.00 and I'm not sure if they know about the mods .
Needless to say I'll be swapping to AAMI very soon!
damn you! Im with AAMI and they said no lowering! and that price AAARRGH! not fair! I guess when i first insured with them i was 17 (and on P's), actually mines gone down from last year about $300 i think. It's still like 750 though... :(
grrr when i had my old ea i was with AAMI, didnt tell them about lowering or sports exhaust and was paying $400 3rd party
then i got my el ghia, i rang up to swap my policy over to the new car and i told them i have a sports exhaust and they said they wont insure me, so i had to go to just cars and now im paying over $600 3rd party, and the only mod on the el is the exhaust,
and even though i work for a AAMI preffered smash repairer i still cannot be insured with them.....all over a peice of pipe...its stupid
The magna is nearly dead...i need a new car...AGAIN!!...why did i sell the EL??
Oh, didn't realise you were "old" Heritage - over 30 I presume. Certainly makes a difference!
Eafairmontghia, if a "piece of pipe" is causing you that much grief get rid of it!
Actually I'm only 30, but I've never made an insurance claim, Ive had my license for more than 8 years, and I havent lost my lisence or had it suspended in the last 3 years, so I guess that helped alot with the price.
