Yes. Privilege require me to have a tracker as well a CAT 1 alarm, adn TBH even if they didn't, I think I would fit one anyway. It's only £100 a year for the RAC trackstar that I have, and if that means I get my car back if some scum nicks it, then it's money well spent.

Dunno

Maybe with mine not being a GTST or a GTR they might not have had it on their list or something, maybe confusion with the Call Centre Monkey!!!

Cheers

Insurance

Guys,
I am insured with Privlege, and they insisted that I have a Cat 1 alarm and Tracker, but will be looking around this time, as they place all Skylines in the same bracket. group 20+. I told them mine was a 2.0 litre non turbo, but they didn't know the difference.

I pays to shop around.

Well my car is with directline, not my 1st choice but before the skyline my other car was insured with them and fully piad, so it was cheaper to pay the extra £200 for it. Also directline have had a listing for my car, an r33 gts turbo 2.5 import as it says on my paper work.

They did insist on a tracker and cat 1 and as simon said even if they didn't i would still have one as it gives me that little extra peace of mind, and these days cat 1's and trackers don't cost the earth!

Same as Rich with Direct line. They will let you insure the car fully comp, but wont cover it for theft if you don't have a tracker installed - thats what they told me anyway. Direct line is one of the few company that will even look at insurance on an import and below 25.

Insurance

Jason,
Looks like it depends who you get on the other end of the phone, because my last car was with Direct line, and when I told them that I was changing my car to a Skyline, the person told me that they didn't do Grey import cars!!!. I would have to go through Privilege(their sister company). So there seems to be a conflict of interest here. When I contacted Privilege, they first said that there wasn't a 2.0 litre non turbo Skyline, only a 2.5 litre single turbo Skyline. When I assured them that IT was infact a 2.0 lite Skyline, the person on the phone said that It wouldn't matter anyway as all Skylines were classes in the same group!!!, Why she asked me in the first place what model it was then is behond me if they are all in the same Insurance group, Hence I will be looking further afield this year.

A-plans quote for my '93 Skyline GTS25 non-turbo- £1532 fully comp, Thatham Cat 2 needed. Im 25 with only 1 years NCD, and no pints... car parked on the drive at night.

Direct line, the only other company to quote me for less than £2000 quoted £1550ish TPFT, Cat 2 + Tracker required - oddly the quote from direct line was only about £70 cheaper than their quote for a GTS-T.
