Xhaust and insurance

I was just wondering how you get along with insurance and extractors with 2 1/2 inch exhaust etc? I'm 18 with suncorp metway with 3rd party person, fire and theft insurance. Anyone have any idea how much the premium would go up by?

Re: Xhaust and insurance

Very much depends on the company. Some won't change it at all. Your best bet is to simply call them.

In general, you can get away with a couple of mods before they start rejecting you. Remember that most of the companies regard extractors & exhaust system as 2 mods tho

Re: Xhaust and insurance

I read on another thread, with suncorp metway, that you can have as many mods (legal with notification) as you want, but there is a $300 excess if you have an accident. Can anyone back this up?

Re: Xhaust and insurance

With Suncorp, I believe that is the case. I called them during my annual "insurance derby", and when they told me this, I almost fell off my chair (mainstream company allowing mods - )
That said, I think they were fairly close to just-cars in premium however (in any case they were significantly more than FordInsure was).
