Having owned my Type R M200 for 5 years, I'm just having a slight issue with the insurance company while trying to get my girlfriend insured, because they are trying to tell me my number plate is down on the insurance database as a CIVIC 2.0(09ON)MUGEN, looking at my V5 form its listed as Civic Type R Mugen too, so I'm curious is this what it say on all M200 V5's or is it down as Civic Type R Mugen 200???
I can manually select CIVIC 2.0(10ON)MUGEN TYPE R 200 on the insurance website and it makes quite a difference to the insurance cost,
so I'm beginning to think my V5 is wrong :worms:

Thanks

Richard

My V5 says "Civic Type R Mugen IVTEC"

Sounds like the insurance company think you have the M20 rather than M200 - definitely a price difference in that case!

The "M20" should not mention Mugen on the V5. They were standard Civic Type R in Championship White (not Mugen 200) and pre-registered (1st owner as Mugen) prior to being turned into M20. However there was a specific insurance classification created for these cars under their proper name of Honda Civic Type R Mugen (they were never called M20, this is a name given to them on the forums), which if this is what it says on the V5 of the M200's may be where the confusion lies.

Mine is the same as Welshy's....
CIVIC TYPE R MUGEN I-VTEC ;)
which means it is a Mugen 200, as opposed to a full M20-spec Type R, which will not mention Mugen on the V5 because it was modified after initial registration.
I can see why it might be confusing for insurance companies (who may not have a clue what the differences are).
