Hello all. So I've bought a newer car. It's a 2011 NC 2.0 PRHT Sport I paid £10,100.00 for it and it's done 10,000 miles from new. its as new condition and fully loaded in True Red, yum yum.....
So I've just insured it and of course if it gets totalled in a crash I'll not get the £10,100.00 back. However I can and will purchase "Gap Insurance". I'm being quoted a premium of £219.00 for a 4 year policy.
Do any of you know if this sounds like an average deal and if there is a preferred insurance company to use? Any help would be appreciated.
IIRC a company called ALA are decent and much cheaper than the commission-loaded policies dealers and insurance companies sell - check out the Pistonheads 'Car Buying' forum section as I'm sure there's a sticky in there.
As with all insurance policies, of course, make sure to read the small print, wherever you buy!
JamesMk3: Rear left wheel bearing replaced. What a saga. Can now hear noise coming from front right, and alignment is completely knackered. FML.

wannabe: I've had both front bearings replaced on the missus' car over the past few months and it's STILL making a droning noise... lol. Need to check if the mechanic actually replaced the correct one the second time I took it in!!

FFS Corders: Are the wheels straight? Buckles can cause a drone

wannabe: Hmmm... That's an interesting idea... no wheel wobble on the missus' car, which I would have thought was a strong indicator of being out-of-round, but I guess they could be bent side-to-side..??

wannabe: Ooooh, interesting - thanks, Howard. I'll have to get the tyres swapped round to see if it makes a difference! I will be most annoyed if it is tyres, seeing as they are only a few months old...

howardb66: If it is the tyres, don’t chuck them away, try getting them shaved.

V6: I had an education in dampers today. I like expensive ones. Floaty, not bouncy for the win.
