Twisted Performance Chip

Hi All

My Grizzly Old insurance company (NFU) have added 20% to my policy
because I have had my 90 chipped :-(. The said they realise that it does
no really add to the top speed but it does add to the acceleration. They
make it sound like I am going to do 0 to 60 in about 3 second!! I am not
really sure they realise a Defender is still like a brick and the
increased acceleration does not turn into a V8 Muscle Car!

Perhaps I am just Ranting! Does anyone know of any more Chip friendly
insurance companys.

Cheers
Phil

I think you'll find that things like chipping are viewed by insurance
companies as an indication of the drivers driving style, or attitude
if you like. I'm not implying anything about your good self, but I think
it's easy to see the risk assessor thinking "Ah!, not someone who
just wants to plod around".

Pah NFU ....
I spit on them and their fake NCD's that are beaten by the likes of
Tesco for the same vehicle with no NCD.

Should be renamed to NFW!
