Shackleton Posted February 12, 2008 Share Posted February 12, 2008 Folks Thought this was worth relaying to you guys - My English uncle has had Range Rovers all the time I've known him (he's an inlaw) and in fact he still has the RRC Vogue SE he bought new in '91, it has 200k miles on it and I kidyou not it sounds like a Swiss watch and has never been rebuilt. He never missed a service. Anyhoo last year he bought a very low mileage DHSE P38. He wasn't tre impressed with the power and we'd spoken many times about him getting it upgraded. So finally he did. 50% increase in bhp or whatever from JE methinks. Anyway his insurance came up and being a consciencious chap he let them know about the upgrade and they promptly refuse to reinsure him! This is the RAC by the way. So he frantically searched for a new insurer. He got one but they explained that they had to put a 30% loading on his policy cause of the mod. We'll he wasn't impressed but went along with it as it was still the best quote he'd had. We were chatting again a little later and I showed him an old article in LRO or LRM reviewing the P38 D and talking about how underpowered it was and how a chip or remap was a real sensible upgrade. It basically spelt out that the car was slow from the factory and how this mod would make it acceptable - but not fast. So he faxes the article to the insurance company accompanied with a phone call explaining the situation and asked them to take the matter to the underwriters... He got the 30% loading taken back off the policy! Job done. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
