if you dont declare all of you modifiation your insurance is void. if your insurance is void youve got no insurance. if youve got no insurance and get pulled over you car gets crushed. so yeah declare your mods

Im glad someone finally made this topic...You do need to declare all modifications.

A modification is something which actually differs to the manufacturers standard build on that particular vehicle.

I have seen questions on here about "I have a saxo 1.1 and want to put a VTR/S kit on or VTR/S Alloys on, seems Citroen make them is that not a modification?"

Well the answer is yes, that is a modification, although they are standard on other Saxo models, they are NOT standard on the 1.1, hense why its a mod.

Good thread imo!

You say that has not made much different but...

An extra £14 a month = £168 a year?

But still, its much better they are declared!

it would be less but as i only have 5 months left on my policy they have had to split 12 months worth between the next 5 payments .

Since when have you had the mods?

If they are recent mods, then that wont be split for the 12 months, that will be for the time left on your policy.

Expect a big increase in premium if thats only for 5 months!

well rang them this morning had them added on only just really put the mods on but yes they have split it between the 5months , added it to the original 12 month premium then took off what i had paid then added the extra on to the remaining 5months.Was only paying £350 a year this year before declaring anything.

Sorry I didnt quite get that lol.

Basically, if you add mods 6 months into a policy, they wont charge you for having them the full 12 months, they will only charge for the 6 months its been on cover.

So the premium for adding your mods was only for the 5 months left on the policy, not for all 12 months.

i'd say declare all mods, i was on the honda civic forum, and there was a thread about the new speed cameras that are being introduced, these can read liscence plates and read data like the police in car system, so they will be able to see if you have mot, tax, insurcance and delcared mods, if you dont have these it flashes just as if you wer speeding.

I'll find the info and post it

Beacause you have spent money getting that done. If you crash they will replace it with a normal boot rather than your 'smoothed boot'. It wont change your insurance much/at all so worth doing.

right my argument is you cant insure a de-cat as its illeigal?

so whats the point paying extra for all these other things when you know its going to be void anyway...

+ i mostly drive on country roads and a "knock 4 knock" rule applys so the insurence arn't even involved!

I'm with fluxdirect, part of Adrian flux and i just rang up to switch from my modded vtr to a standard furio and they said it would be 55 pound extra ontop of the 1200 per year im paying for the vtr, thought that sounded pretty ridiculous. I asked for a quote with vts wheels and they said they would reimburse 104 pounds! saved 150 quid by declaring mods .

The lovely lass said its a special policy they do for modified vehicles. Can't be bad 'ey?
