Cat C twice


Would that force any increase on insuring it  :-\ Or is it something they just dont check or something you have to declare  :-\

Should add, also on PNC as civvy owned/undergoing restoration. Only reason it isn't blue and yellow is because I currently commute in it...

Some insurance companies don,t like CatCs ( as i found out) they also might ask for proof of repair, depending when it was recatagorized. Not a huge problem and as said depends on the company you are asking for a quote from. :y

Being a factory manual 3.2 cause the most headaches when renewing, not yet had the whole insuring a cat C thing... Only time it was an issue was that they dropped the cover from fully comp the tpft pending a fresh Mot and VIC... Changing insurers soon sorted any grumbles :y

I remember it being a very quick car to drive. I think it's a good buy, the mileage can be ignored as anything it's ever needed, Al has done!

Got a VW, Audi, Skoda or Seat? I have full Diagnostic software VCDS to read and program your car. Need something enabling? Perhaps full diagnostic? Drop me a PM. Can diagnose in Camberley or Osterley Area.
