“Oh hell, it’s car insurance renewal time! Great, put the kettle on. Two hours on the phone explaining my high compression pistons, only to be finally told they can’t insure me due to the mods!” Really! It doesn’t have to be that difficult!
As you can imagine, all of the Driftworks cars are modified in some way, most are highly modified. For example Phil’s pride and joy above, his V10 (E60 M5) engine converted E46 M3 is about as modified as a car can be. As you can imagine, trying to get something insured like this could be a major headache, it would probably send those merchants running back to Russia!
There are specialist insurers on the market who cater for modified cars so rather than waste your time with filling out forms on internet price comparison sites only to be told ‘computer says no’ you might as well save your phone bill and energy and go directly to the specialists. This car, as with most of the Driftworks cars that range from full Drift competition specification to hydraulic low riders, are all insured through SKY INSURANCE. Sky Insurance are not only modified car insurance specialists but also many of the staff are car enthusiasts and will often be seen at car meets and events, so they tend to know what they are talking about.
We are happy to recommend Sky Insurance to all of our UK (mainland) based Driftworks customers and Sky Insurance offer a discount to Driftworks forum members and customers, so give them a shout!
