I suppose they wont know its installed unless I'm involved in an accident. But then there is always the chance that they check that out before coffing up any dosh?
I'd rather go down the route that allows me to get to sleep at night. Perhaps I need to repost on the Flashpro Thread to get a better response? Thanks anyway...

not one for not declaring things but how are the insurance company going to get access to your ecu if it has a flash pro installed. I would have thought it was locked?:confused:

As long as you dont leave it in the car once mapped they wont know.

But I will still be declaring it. I dont think it'll increase BHP enough to effect insurance too bad.

Hi NighthawkES,

Covering a Flashpro ECU with mainstream companies may cause a few of them a problem, but most specialist companies will have no problem covering the Flashpro ECU.

As an indication the very most you would be looking at in terms of premium increase would be 5-10%.

So there's no problem with disclosure of this modification.

Kind regards

Tony

Many thanks Tony, that was precisely the information I was after. :)

just one other thing... would having the rear windows tinted be classed as a modification that insurers would need to be notified about?

HI NighthawkES,

You would need to inform Insurers about anything that was not upon the vehicle when it left the factory.

Privacy glass is regarded as a modification, but providing the tint percentage is legal there is likely to be no charge made by Insurers for this modification.

Kind regards

Tony

Cheers Tony and many thanks once again... Perhaps I should also inform them I have a Civinfo sticker on the back of the car? Hopefully there should then be a decrease in my premium? ;)

Tinting does depend on your insurer. I was once with Churchill and they advised they would no longer insure my vehicle if I tinited the rear windows as it was no longer 'factory standard'... needless to say i moved to a more accommadating insurer soon after..
