As I didn't have to pay the £20 for Agreed Value this time as it lasts for 2 years, mine was £145 inc UK Breakdown with Classicline :)

They've been good to deal with and very efficient. I've got recovery arranged through them which puts the price up a bit, but worth it for peace of mind?

Great quote Nick! When you think of all the enjoyment you get out of the car, £84 a year is a bargain. These days, you'd probably have to pay that for a day at Alton Towers!

I've just checked, Alton Towers is £55 pp if you pay at the gate...

Thanks chaps. Yep I am very happy with the renewal ! They do seem to offer great value indeed. Their insurance also covers shows too. This renewal does not include breakdown cover though. I decided to get RAC Cover for both me and the wife last year rather than getting separate covers for the two of us and both cars. Getting one joint membership for any car just seemed the best thing to do...but the wife is not insured on B112....a man must draw a line somewhere....if the wife says its ok :lol:

Funny as I have insured the wife to drive mine but she said the steering is to heavy for her I also got my dad on the policy what I think has put the price up . He is 74 this year and drives on the cats eyes also he does leaves his foot on the clutch . :lol:

So lastweek i renewed my insurance for £166 with legal aid and fully comp also no claims protected . the wife and dad on the policy also 5000 miles a year and I can leave on the drive at night with a agreed value of £12500 . I think I should have gone £15000 but will leave that for Next year .

I used Admiral as . Lancaster and footman & Johnson did come under a few pounds it was only penny’s so I stayed where I was .

I dropped the breakdown and legal cover this year which brought the premium down to £ 140 with Lancaster. 5k miles. Not sure if thats good or bad.

Mines £78 with admiral but that’s for 2k miles so doesn’t sound too bad.

Funny you should mention that as I popped down to the garage earlier today to book the MOT. 1st week in March. It's good to get the MOT out of the way early in the year.
