Hi

Personally, we're fine with mods but you must always tell your insurers about them, otherwise you may have a claim rejected.

Regarding costs, it depends what your insurers are like with mods - some hate them!
Thanks bluepunto2 thanked for this post

Re: should i tell insurance about hid kit?

they may not pay out at all though on a claim as hid kits are not legal?

I'm working from home so you'd have to ring the team in the office on 0800 917 2274 - sorry!

I'm not sure what you're own company would say. Maybe give them a quick call?
