Recommended Posts

Polo 6n on classic insurance? Hello again. I'm looking at getting a e60 535d in a few months time when I get my 2 years no claims bonus. I've tried soon many insurance companies that does multi car policies and quotes are coming back 2.5k the cheapest. I really don't wanna get rid of the polo because I have a soft spot for it but is there any insurance companies that would insure it on classic policy? I won't be driving it that much max 3times a month as I will have my BMW then. Worse comes i might have to sell it :(  Thanks nimal

Your 6n is a V reg if I'm not mistaken? Which makes it 18 years old now, so should qualify for classic insurance as most have a minimum car age requirement of 15 years. 

You'll need to phone round them and get quotes though as most aren't on comparison sites. Lancaster Classic & Footman James are good ones to try.

Most policies ask that the classic car isn't your main car and that you value it over £1000 along with a few other things. They also don't count NCB and don't earn you NCB, but they are usually cheap enough that you don't need that anyway.

"There is no standard definition of the term 'classic car' for insurance purposes. HM Revenue & Customs rules state that you can define a car as classic if it is more than 15 years old and worth at least £15,000 - but individual insurance providers may use different criteria when deciding whether to confer heritage or classic status on your car."

 

That's from moneysupermarket site, so by age it falls into the description but certainly not the value :(

I don't get why they say it isn't old enough. My E46 M3 is insured on a classic policy and it is only 16 years old so a year younger than your car. 

If you want to try them it is insured through Performance Direct.

@kwijibo_coupe I'll give performance direct a ring on my day off. I really dont want to get rid of it and just keep it as a second spare car.

Maybe, insure through someone who specialises insurance like our sponsors and have it on limited mileage etc, which should bring the price right down.

      Hi everyone, 
       
      Although I'm new to forum I'm not new to VAG cars since the family cars are either VW or Audi! :p
       
      I currently own a 1.0 Polo 6N that I inherited from my grandfather. This cars as always been in the family being bough new from the dealer back in 1995 (I even have the delivery and first service records!) and it's very special to me since it's the first car I remember as a child - I even have pictures as a baby in the back seat of this car.

      Since there isn't really a big Polo community here in Portugal - Golfs and TDI Ibizas are a thing around here - I joined the forum hoping to learn more about the car and to find ways of improving and maintaining it.

      Cheers from Porto!

      Hi guys looking for some information about what it takes to take the vr6 engine out a mk3 golf and drop it into the 6n estate, not much coming up on the web besides a really old thread on here just showing it finished. i know the two cars run the same chassis so subframe wise it should bolt in, but i cannot think of any serious problems with swapping the engines. so can some one correct me or should it be straight front as swap the ecu and loom then swap and bolt all the engine bits across including driveshafts, only think i think may be an issue is the drive shaft spline on a vr6 would be different to the polo. if any one can shed some light onto this as im looking into buying a clean estate.
