Just got a quote from Paceward. They've quoted me more than what I was paying over 6 years ago with my previous GTR. It doesn't make sense. I've had no claims at all. Over 15 years NCD. In my early 40's and living in a decent part of London (same postcode as before) I was with Admiral with my last GTR and I was paying around 800. Paceward have come in at 1600.

On the way back to putting the deposit down on my R35 CBA from Autotorque a lady ran a red light and smashed into the side rear drivers side with the wheel taking the brunt - spinning me 270 degrees. Luckily i have 2 independent witnesses that were directly behind her.. but my Guards red '99 911 (factory aero kit) has seen better days.
:( The timing is impeccable!! She is claiming i went through the red light as well as filing a personal injury claim?!
Got quotes for ~ £700 but had to pay up around the £1800 mark now as open claim. Disaster.

No Claims Bonus : 20 years
Points on liscence : 0 points
Claims in last 3 years : 1 own fault, 1 non fault
Year of Car : 2012
Modifications on Policy: Miltek Y-pipe, Stage 1 remap
The Quote :£611

Worth noting the Admiral quote on it's own was £836. Pace Ward were lower for single car, but multi car was dearer. This was with a £100 cheaper XS though.

Also, taking tracker off the policy was only £11 increase for Admiral, £75 for Pace Ward.

Little bit of swings and roundabouts, went with the cheaper option.

Year of Car : 2010 (10 Plate)

this was last year, hopefully with a years experience and my own no claims the renewal will drop under £1k
2015
Insurance Company : pace ward
Your Age : 34
No Claims Bonus : 1yr (+company car driver - my company confirmed I hadn't claimed)
Points on license : 3 points (4yrs 11 months old)
Claims in last 3 years : 0
Year of Car : 2010 (10 Plate)
Mileage per year: 8000
Modifications on Policy: stage 4.25
The renewal :£825

So just had the renewal through for 2016, details as follows:
2016
Insurance Company : pace ward
Your Age : 35
No Claims Bonus : 2yr (previously had full no claims but company car ownership meant it was no longer valid)
Points on license : 0 points
Claims in last 3 years : 0
Year of Car : 2010 (10 Plate)
Mileage per year: 8000
Modifications on Policy: stage 4.25
The renewal :£750

Wondering if it's worth ringing round. What puts me off is that with the company car / no claims position generally people aren't keen and also Pace Ward have been excellent. If there is a deal to be had I will post up, otherwise this is what my premium is for this next year
^ that's excellent value

I've got a prosecution coming through for 96mph in a 70, so likely 4 to 6 points. Lets see in the next few months what that does to the quote :nervous:

2017
Insurance Company : pace ward
Your Age : 36
No Claims Bonus : 3yr (previously had full no claims but company car ownership meant it was no longer valid)
Points on license : 5 points
Claims in last 3 years : 0
Year of Car : 2010 (10 Plate)
Mileage per year: 7000
Modifications on Policy: stage 4.25
The renewal :£700

I had a chat with them and they renewed for £675 which included reducing mileage down to 7000pa (from 8k). Pace Ward have been good for me and I couldn't be arsed ringing around so just renewed with them.

When renewed in 2017 (again with Pace Ward) and included 5 points, premium would have held but I protected the no claims as it was upto 8 years (including introductory bonus) for about £50 more


Now for 2018:

Insurance Company : Pace Ward
Your Age : 37
No Claims Bonus : 9yrs (protected)
Points on license : 5 points (in one pop - £600 to 700'ish fine / no ban)
Claims in last 3 years : 0
Year of Car : 2010 (10 Plate)
Mileage per year: 7000
Modifications on Policy: stage 4.25
Car Value: £39,999
The renewal :£599

Again, Pace Ward have been great. Hopefully they will continue to take care of me, although everything I see from others ranting on FB suggests premiums going the other way. I also took the opportunity to speak to them about a potential significant increase in power (900/1000 total) BHP. They advised they would still be able to insure it. That they would be sympathetic on the need for a tracker as I've owned the car for a long time in the same area, without any issues (normally tracker for cars worth over £40k). They advised the premium would likely change somewhere between 10% and 30%. Of course until I properly commit and ring them for an actual quote that's not guaranteed. But in principle it all sounds very reasonable and to be able to modify to a 1k HP and insure for (possibly much) less than £1k seems ok to me.


I notice flicking back through this thread it is a bit light on renewal information for people. With Insurers seemingly getting more expensive it would be good to get more data to get an idea on which companies are being the most competitive for our cars.

Unfortunately Admiral seem to be a bit inconsistent with their approval for mods on Nissan GT-Rs. I've been with them for years on a multi-car policy (3 cars) and they wouldn't insure me on a GT-R because it had been tuned and therefore they claimed they do not insure cars which have been "chipped"/with modified ECUs. Shame though, because they've always been competitive for me :(
