admiral - sports grill change

called them up today to advise that I was replaceing front grill due to it havign a crack...i advised I was thinking of replacing with a geniune honda civic sports grill ( getting from cox)......and was this classed as modification as it was a different colour, etc

i explained that of course this was an honda dealer as such and they kindly advised that this is not deemed a modification and made a note on the account...

very hapoy with this....lets hope they do the same for the type s spoiler im going to get

well done admiral......

i stand corrected - i called today as the guy i spoke to could not get off the phone quick enough when i called, so wanted to double check it was on my account.......

my suspicion was correct, as there was not note on the account, i politely advised of this and my sheer disappointment, and they wanted to charge £30....the woman advised a good will gesture they owuld wave the £30 charge for this for when I change...she has advised this is marked on the account...i will be calling tomorrow again to confirm, thats for sure, but fair enough they have waved the charge...which in fairness is only fair...

they are also charging me £17.50 for the rear spoiler being added...so all in all fairly happy......

not too large a price to pay to be fully insured, lets face it they would void you insurance for a lot less!

Tell them it's a body kit as it'll only be one single modification.

I rang my insurance company a few months ago to check up on some minor issue; they just needed some more documents, so no real problem. Then I casually mentioned that I was thinking of replacing my gear knob, while waiting for her to check something on her PC. The lady then wanted to know why, I said there was a small scratch on it and I wanted to replace it with a black leather one as the OME was a bit pricey. She then got a bit suspicious about how I had managed to scratch the original knob. "what I'm becoming concerned about sir is how you managed to damage the interior of your car". Blimey I though, I only wanted a new gear knob, I'm a perfectionist and I like to take car of my motor, it was slightly scratched when I bought it, that is all. She told me she would have to make a note on my records! I'm glad I did not tell her about the new mats I bought. From now on I shall be very careful what I say.

tell them how many stone chips you have on the bonnet then they will freak lol.

i've been pretty happy with admiral although i wasnt expected my insurance to go up by £320 for upgrading to a type r (from a hyundai coupe), even when comparison sites were telling me it should have been about £220 even with admiral. must be because of it been a policy update and not a new policy or renewal. ah well, the cars worth it!

Insurance.....vs....kits?

Hi All,

Just took delivery of my new 2012 Civic SE 2.2iDtec Crystal Black and was wanting to personalise it a bit with the Honda fitted Design pack which include the Sport front grill, fog lamp area garnish, Sport fuel tank lid and rear tailgate plate. As its a manufacturers supplied and fitted kit would that be classed a one modification or several?

Cheers,

Pete.

I wouldn't even bother disclosing it to them mate.

With a company like admiral they just pay marshmellows to sit there on the phones.

At the end of the day it's a Honda factory extra and in the event of a claim, all you have to say is "it came with the car, and it's an optional extra" - they simply can not repudiate if that is the case... The FOS would take your side and crucify them!

If you ring up and start talking to them about it etc your just going to confuse the ape that you talk to, don't waste your time in my opinion

If they are Honda supplied parts that are optional extras, who is to say that you didn't buy the car that way thinking they were standard items?
