Hi JL,
Give AXA  a try for your insurance, but use their main web site not comparison sites.

Dan politely responded to a PM and quotes were provided by AF as well as Axa (Neilís suggestion), current provider Aviva and a search on Compare the Market. Outcome is a significant saving by switching to eSure. And buying through Compare weíve got 2 for 1 cinema all year too!

Hi JL,
Good to see you got a good deal.
My insurance is due in November, it will be interesting to see what the renewal quote from AXA comes out at . A web search sounds favourite too.

Have a question regarding the Akro exhaust, does the valve open when hitting the sport button, or is just a different engine note your because of the map change?

Dealer thinks this was the case but I seem to know a lot more about the car than they do and it seemed like he was just going along with the idea.

Checked myself and it seems pretty clear that yes, the electronic value works with the sport button and itís not just the map change or later spinning turbo.

Hi all.
One very happy XSR owner here.........Insurance renewal came through from AXA,  showing £43 increase on last year.
However after contacting them by phone and discussing various qoutes from online and increasing my excess by £50 my new policy is £42 cheaper than last year.
Always pays to push them hard.

Some bloke called Barney or something. He is more intent on teaching the rest of the European plebes that they shouldn't look to leave the EU rather than negotiate a fair settlement for Britain.
