Lotus Elan

Insurance Costs

PostPost by: GrUmPyBoDgEr » Tue Sep 09, 2008 8:46 am

Hi there,

I've just had a renewal notice through for my S4 Elan with Zetec engine.
Fully Comp. & unlimited mileage (they won't offer me a limited mileage insurance)
It's going to cost me 396.30 pounds for the next year.
I'd like to know if there's anyone else out there with Zetec power & how much they are paying.

Cheers
John

John that seems really expensive i pay less than £300 for a 5 litre griffith is the car based in Germany perhaps you are paying a premium for modified car & is it RHD. I use Hagerty at silverstone & they do a multi car policy also. Dont have number to hand but comes up on google.

Hi Ian,

well errm, not officially; everything runs through my GB address.
Yes it is RHD.
A bit of a problem overtaking the "Sunday drivers" on the "B roads" though; especially when the grass has grown high or "the corn is so high as an Elephants eye"!
The MOT's a bit of a bugger also, ever since the testing stations have had to go on line.
Imprisonment for breaking the rules as far as I understand :shock:
MOT every 12 months is a bit OTT , IMHO
Even "in the Fatherland" with all of it's rules & regulations it's every 2 years. Which 'aint so bad. (Rip off Britain?)

I'll Google that address & see what it comes up with; ta very much.

I'd still be interested to hear from "Zetec engined" Elan owners, to find out how much they have to pay for insurance.
Come on Guys don't be shy
:wink: :wink:

Cheers
John

PS It's good to be back on board :D :D :D :D

About £170 for my Zetec +2, but that's 5K limited mileage.

Oh yes,
now that's closer to reality :D
5K is fine I don't think my car has done that much in the past 4 years
Can you give me the details please?
PM me if you feel it more appropriate.

Thanks a lot
John

Hi niallf,

I'd be grateful to you if you would let me know which company insures your Zetec +2.
5K mileage limit is no problem for me & our car Spec's are so close together that I should also expect to pay the same premium.

Thanks in advance
John
