Modified Car Insurance
Some of the more popular car modifications include:
• Sports exhaust
• Steering wheel
• Front grill
• Wider or larger wheels
• Engine modifications – sports air filter, remapped ECU, uprated turbocharger
• Uprated brakes and/or suspension
• Sports seats
• Body modifications – flared wheel arches, boot spoiler, body kit, tow bar
• Paint respray
• Uprated lighting
Insurers like to know what they are insuring and anything that deviates from a standard vehicle’s specification means that the insurer is relying upon the policyholder to not only accurately describe the car’s modifications, but also to have had the modifications carried out correctly. The extent to which a car’s modifications affects the vehicle’s performance, handling, braking and overall safety becomes an unknown factor – which is why so few insurers are willing to offer insurance quotes for modified cars.
