I wonder if we should wait to see how much standard insurance prices rise?

The AU was also cheapest in it's class. Cheaper than the BA by the looks of it, actually by a large margin if they are talking a rise of 28%

Well, if the NRMA says that it costs 28% more to fix, in their own minds that would justify a rise in premiums of say.... around 40%

If you ask me, these low speed crash tests has as much to do with giving the insurance companies a 'justification' for their latest round of price rises as it does with informing the public.

Gotta do something to prop up an ailing share price caused by absolute incompetence at the boardroom level

I switched to Allianz when I got the XR6 as they were $1099 cheaper than NRMA.
