Funnily enough, Adrian Flux rang me and strangely started putting me through to other companies to get a quote as I didn't have one and then would call me back after the quote. I really don't like Adrian Flux, just too pushy, anyway the first one didn't do my type of car so that call ended then AF rang me back and put me through to another company. This company quoted me 125 but I knew I could get it cheaper if I shopped around. So this guy knew AF had put me through so I said "I think AF are going to call me back after you've quoted and quote cheaper. I don't really want to pay more than 100 as I'm 45 hardly drive this car and it's kept in an alarmed highly secure garage with an immobiliser fitted, I've got no points and haven't been involved in any accidents, I think I'm a good bet. He went off to speak to his manager, as they do, came back with 105. I bit his hand off!

Company is called

Insurance Choice 01926 319 112

Lol, sounds like me. They told me last year that I couldn't ring around. Then when I said I wanted to try a few other places he said "your wasting our time, don't bother ringing back next year"

Seems a good reason not to try them again.
105 is bloody good tho so worth a try directly I think.

Thanks Chris, I hadn't heard of them. I had an email from AF asking me to try them for a quote, I followed the link thinking they would quote on line but in the end it said we will ring with your quote. Nothing heard from them since and thats now over a month ago. I'll try your company

Update. Been out in the car every couple of weeks to a month. Full Throttle at all times, mainly to a local pub called The Scotch Piper where a load of people gather together every Monday night in all sorts of cars from American muscle to minis.

Wanting more laughs so due to the limited mileage I do I'm looking into some cheap mods for more power.

:LOL D
