    We've been running a SALE with some of the other car clubs/forums we have partnered with and it has proved very popular. As insurers seem happy for us to continue going lower than we normally would to sign up car enthusiasts, we'd be mad to stop it now.

    The idea is that where price is the only barrier to you switching to Chris Knott we've been authorised to remove that barrier (subject to a minimum premium of around £250 and you meeting our usual criteria).

    So the good news is that we're opening up the SALE to this forum's members and running it for a further 3 months, which takes us up to 31st May 2013.

    Even better news is that there's also going to be a prize draw for this Spring Sale as Chris Knott bosses have agreed to offer an iPad Mini 16Gb WiFi - just get a genuine quote before 1st June to be in with a chance of winning.

    Of course, the aim is to see how much Chris Knotts can save you on your car insurance - but the iPad Mini draw is a nice little extra.

    If your car insurance is due between now and the end of June (as we can quote about 30 days in advance), simply call Chris Knott Insurance on 0800 917 2274 for your quote, mentioning this forum's unique code (in my sig below).

    Thanks and good luck.

    We'd be really happy to hear from you if your car insurance is due this month. As you can see from our OP above, we're trying to do all we can to beat members' best quotes and there's the chance to WIN an iPad Mini 16Gb WiFi just for getting a quote.

    Please include us in the mix when you're looking around at renewal. You'll get the best rate by phoning us after you've gathered your other quotes - 0800 917 2274 or 01424 200477.

    To help us celebrate our 30th Anniversary this year we're also giving away £30 each month to one lucky person from across our 200+ forum partners.

    I'm really pleased to announce that the WINNER of our last draw (Ferrari Driving Experience) was Mr Graham Perdeaux - a member of both AlfaOwner.com and FiatForum.com. Our congratulations go to Graham and we hope he has a really enjoyable day at Silverstone.

    March is always a busy month for the industry as historically a large car insurer went to the wall in March and all their polices came back into the market. Of course, it's also one of the months in which new vehicle registrations occur and many people switch/update their cars.

    If you're having trouble getting through by phone we do have an online quote contact form (http://www.chrisknott.co.uk/CarQuote) but please we aware that it may take longer to respond than normal because of call volumes.

    As this March's registrations will be '13 plates the DVLA is allowing superstitious motorists to register under the '62 plate until 1st September when '63 will come in as expected. However, this raises it's own issues with the used car market when it comes to selling a 2013 car with a '62 plate on if the true registration year is missed by the dealer. Drivers may be offered considerably less than the correct value if they are not careful.

    Please call 0800 917 2274 or 01424 200477 for your free, no-obligation quote and to find out how much you could save.

    We don't claim to be the best for every single member but our criteria is not as restrictive as you are making out. We did say in the OP that you needed to fit our criteria in order to benefit.

    Here's the criteria again:

    The scheme covers most modifications (excluding nitrous and roll cages). All makes and models are considered eligible. Drivers of 'Z' Series vehicles (and performance type models from other makes) must be aged 25 or over with 2 years' experience of driving that car or one of similar performance (sometimes aged 30 with one year's experience is acceptable - depending on overall risk profile). For most other makes drivers only need to be aged over 19 for TPF&T or 22 for Comprehensive. All drivers must have held a licence for at least 1 year and have a minimum 1 year's NCB.

    Quotes subject to individual circumstances including restrictions on claims/convictions (no more than 1 SP/PC/PL conviction per driver). Sorry but we are not competitive for some of the M, L or OL postcodes and can't quote for SK1-12 or Northern Ireland. Some postcodes require the car to be parked off the road overnight.


    While we may not have been the best option for you on this occasion, we'd expect (based on our experience of the other 200 or so forums we work with) to be able to help the majority of members find a good deal and at the same time benefit from the backup of having a broker fight your corner if you need it following a claim.

    Well i dont know how you could expect anyone to have better circumstances and to fit your criteria than i do, age, area where we live, limited mileage, where the cars are kept, driving experience/years ect ect and quotes have been hundreds out. I have tried for quotes for the TT which is totally standard aswell and they are way above anyone else, so I really dont know what your criteria to adhere to is. It is certainly out of my range and very expensive.

    Naughty BMGee, you know what i mean.

    I think that we get overlooked as car enthusiasts where car insurance is concerned.

    Ok I'll admit I'm young, 26, but I was literally quoted double aswell as being told no ha ha ha

    Insurers are all rip off merchants to be fair and this is just another case of that, they all scream LOOK HOW CHEAP WE ARE and yet the more they say it the more expensive they seem to be. Insurance shouldn't be a privatised market its unfair to the consumer and should be legislated.

    Rant over i-)
