Richard G I think normally that if it is just the replacement panel filter element there "SHOULD NOT" (but not absolutely exempt) be any need to inform your insurance, If you had the induction kit then very probably

A rule of thumb I always worked to was that the insurance company probably wants to know about anything that increases their risk of having to pay out, In this day and age that is probably most often in respect of theft from or theft of

mjshort79 HI rob_82. I have not spoken to you before so welcome to the club I know it is a shocking amount . I was under the impression that if a car had alloys on already and you changed them then it did not matter. Alsodoes enyone know ifI have to tellmy insurance companythatI have fitteda K&N air filter to my car.

Rob_82 thats a shocking amount, try a company that specialises in modified cars, even though you've only changed your wheels they still might be cheaper.
Adrian flux who i'm with were cheaper with my remap then all the other companies were to insure my car as standard.

mjshort79 A bit off topic. I just have informed my insurance company that I have changed my alloys and wish I had not bothered now as my policy has gone up by 160. I only changed them from 16" to 17".

Rob_82

Not on a C max but on my current car, a SEAT Leon Cupra TDI I have had it remapped, which increased power to 190 bhp and 300 lbs/ft torque and my insurance company didn't increase the premium at all.
Thats with Adrian Flux, there are a few other companies that don't charge for having remaps, chips etc. All of themain insurance companies like Tesco, the AA etc will charge you through the roof for having a remap or tuning box.

Richard G just what sort of loading %age wise does the insurance go up by for the tunit - roughly?
