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.

      Here we have for sale my Polo that I have owned for over 6 years. It has 4 Months MOT ( April 19th 2019 ) In the time I have had her I have replaced the following Waterpump & Cambelt Front Suspension springs and top mounts Exhaust Back box Battery The millage is currently at 114,000 miles however may increase slightly as its still in use. The bodywork and interior are in great condition with no scratches, rust or tears. Unfortunately she does have 2 slight issues, the first is a intermittent issue with the airbag light, my mechanic says it may be the "squib" a part between the steering wheel and dashboard. The other is that the central locking fob was lost prior to my ownership, You still have central locking by putting the key in the door, however you must put the key in the ignition within 30 seconds of opening the door to prevent the alarm going off. She has been an excellent runner, but I have purchased an upgrade so it's time to let her go to a new home. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Less

      I've managed to fit a mk1 Audi TT wheel in my Arosa and thought I'd share the photo's as the Arosa shares the 6N parts. I had to drill some holes, do a bit of filing and 3D print a bit. Just need to get an airbag to finish it. Much nicer feel.

      Winter Tyres and Chris Knott
       
      Hi, I'm often asked on club forums (and Facebook groups) about switching to winter wheels/tyres and whether an insurer will charge extra if you do.
       
      As it's getting to that time of year again I thought I'd just reassure any Chris Knott clients that the insurers we use don't usually charge for this. However, if you are thinking of swapping your wheels we do have to log when you make the switch and then again when you go back to normal - so please let us know on 0800 917 2274.
       
      Thanks,
      Nick
