No, you dont have to be a paying member.
The main question to adk is whether your car is modified enough to need to be with a broker specialising in modified cars.

Get quotes everywhere else first, then phone them to see if they beat the quote.

My daughter is insured with them now also.

What part of South Yorkshire though? There are some postcodes they wont

quote. Mostly Manchester and Oldham but a few others. They used to say

they are not competetive in those areas.

Wow. When did Manchester and Oldham become part of South Yorkshire?
Personally I'd 1st try all the comparison sites then those insurance companies that don't use them.
I've found over the years that the likes of Chris knot and Be Wiser total P takers with ludicrous quotes. I'm 55 with over 20 years no claims and they don't recognise that.

Surprisingl, despite getting quotes from the usual "compare" websites, my current insurer (ESURE) gave me the best one without even asking! :wub:

Hastings wanted an extra £250 on top of what I paid in full to swap insurance from my mondeo to my Lexus. That would make it just over £800 a year. I said I'd look around. I got a new policy with of all companies Hastings and for the same as I paid for the Mondeo. So I cancelled my policy and what I'll get back will cover 90% of my new policy.

That's crazy, I paid less than that for a modified Skyline pushing 500bhp :crazy:

I'm sure insurers just pull prices out the air at times.

Years back i was looking at getting a Diesel Montego, But the insurance would have cost

more for the Diesel than the 2L MG Turbo model. Thats mad.

Nearly bought an MG model until the guy at the garage mentioned the previous owner

got fed up of having it stolen and he only lived down the road from me.

Ooooooh MG Turbo montego. I nearly once bought the Maestro but an audi quattro Coupe turbo came up so got that instead. Had that 7 years. Stolen twice. Recovered twice (culprits dealt with)
Oh the 80's were good lol
