United Kingdom 2005 Discovery 3 TDV6 HSE Auto Bonatti GreyDiscovery 3

Sorted it, Admiral, total being 724.18 for the year.

I declared all my modifications, including that I use it as a day/overnight van and with fitted racking, storage etc. It's a little higher than I expected, but it does include business use too for the odd occasion that I travel in it to see clients.

Me neither, but they were fitted to the car before I bought it and I needed the insurance cover for the 540 mile drive home from the garage! The spacers have since been removed and the handling is transformed! Smile

United Kingdom 2016 Discovery 4 3.0 SDV6 HSE Auto Santorini BlackDiscovery 4

Wow.

Every time I try and get a quote from somewhere new, the price goes up.

For a non modified car, I'm 48, full NCD, parked on driveway, dashcam fitted, I am astonished at how high the quotes are.

Parking on a driveway can sometimes cost more to insure than on the street. Presumably because on a driveway, it is easier to steal it unseen.

I think it's the new world order. Also, the closer to renewal, the more expensive it gets.
